Shannan Click by Sophia & Mauro

Shannan Click wears the new Baroque inspired trend in a gorgeous editorial for Vogue Turkey. The gothic mood has been contrasted by the warm colour treatments in the photography and the addition of sunny blue skies. Less fierce and more feminine this way. Love this.

Viktoria Sekrier by Jenny Brough

I love a shoot every now and then where the photographer has obviously completely surrendered to the styling and just captured it all in it’s full glory. It doesn’t happen that often as the artistic license of a photographer often precedes. This particular editorial, for Gloss in Slovenia, displays really layered,  intentional, and considered styling. Mostly completely unwearable, like much of fashion, but it’s statement and loud and I like it nonetheless.

Part Five: Jasmine

83% of women’s and 33% of men’s fragrances contain Jasmine, its so hugely popular. Jasmine is best friends with loads of other flowers. It integrates well amongst other scents in fragrances, so it’s often blended with other favourite white flowers of mine like Tuberose, gardenia and honeysuckle. I can rarely walk past jasmine without stopping to look and smell, its fragrance is so strong.

One of most balanced concoctions of Jasmine perfection in a bottle is Serge Lutens’ A La Nuit. It varies with Indian, Eqyptian and Moroccan jasmines in the composition.

Part Four: Rose

This one’s a bit of a no-brainer, but roses have obviously been used in perfumes for many years. It’s not my favourite  fragrance, but the look and appeal of roses are undeniably gorgeous.

Many perfumes contain rose middle notes, popular ones being Rose The One by Dolce & Gabanna, and the  Stella McCartney fragrances mostly contain rose.
Below is Creed’s Fleur de The Rose Bulgare, which gets mixed reviews on most fragrance websites. I generally love anything from Creed, and I love this one, so it’s in.

It was originally commissioned by Mrs Teddy Roosevelt in 1890. She first learnt of Creed whilst travelling in Europe on her honeymoon. She then wrote to Creed to request they develop a fragrance for her containing the Bulgarian tea roses she’d loved on her travels. Fleur de The Rose Bulgare is now the most popular Private Collection fragrance from Creed (others include one commissioned for Grace Kelly), but was made available to the public in the 2000 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Teddy Roosevelt’s election.
