Jo Malone English Oak Review + Prices

Whenever I think about my hikes, I always imagine the lingering scent of the forest. The relaxing scent is a stress-reliever – and this is the magic of the forest. A few weeks ago, I was transported to a mysterious forest for the launch of Jo Malone English Oak. Should I just call it Jo Malone forest? Imagine a regular restaurant was transformed to something like this… The moment I entered the restaurant, the scent of English Oak welcomed me and I was literally stepping on dried leaves! I thought I was having my lunch in a forest as...

Jo Malone Star Magnolia Review

How to keep hair smell so good even when staying outdoors all day? The secret is out… A few weeks ago, Jo Malone launched a limited edition scent — Star Magnolia and it includes a hair mist, which I think we need! Keeping hair smell good ALL day can be a challenge, especially if you live in a tropical country with a very hot and humid weather. Agree? Well, if you need to be outdoors most of the time, it is nearly impossible, to be honest. But of course, Jo Malone always has the answer when it comes to fragrance or scent dilemmas. Jo Malone Star Magnolia This limited edition fragrance, Star Magnolia, is created by Master Perfumer Anna Flipo with the following tasting notes: Top notes: Lemon Middle notes: Star Magnolia Base notes: Sandal wood Star Magnolia is available in Cologne and in Hair Mist. Jo Malone Star Magnolia Packaging The first time I saw the packaging, I already imagined how refreshing the scent is. The gradient bottle from clear to white already exudes that vibe. It also has white floral petals at the base of the diffuser, which is quite different from Jo Malone’s usual simple and classic black and white. But of course, this lady won’t complain. They are really pretty. And if you are a Jo Malone collector, this limited edition bottle is a must-have. Jo...

CK All Review + Prices

When I hear the brand ‘Calvin Klein’, the first thing that comes to my mind is its CK One fragrance. Those who grew up using CK One would surely understand and probably have the same recall of the brand. I’m such a huge fan of CK One that I finished quite a few bottles of it. A few weeks ago, a new Calvin Klein fragrance was launched — CK All, a new interpretation of timeless. It is bold, inclusive, and expressive. CK All Scent Top notes: a bright and stimulating blend of bergamot, madarin and grapefruit flower Middle notes: taking it in a refreshing and clean direction is paradisone, coronal, lilyflore and rhubarb Bottom notes: amber, musk and vetiver offer an expressive warmth CK All Packaging The CK All bottle is an echo of the iconic flask-shaped bottle made over in bright white to communicate the clean, universal appeal of CK All. It is easily recognizable and sill a fresh, modern expression of the classic we’ve all come to love. I find CK All’s scent closer to CK One than CK Be. CK All is just a bit stronger or bolder than CK One, but still fresh and not overwhelming. It has a timeless scent, which can also be a classic just like its predecessor. CK All is available in all leading department stores nationwide. Price points are as...

Who’s a Dior addict??? Well, time to check out Dior’s recently released products! Dior Addict Lacquer Stick PHP 1,900 Imagine a lip product that’s half lacquer and half lipstick – that means shine of a lacquer and pigment of a lipstick. Ahhh… getting the best of both worlds?

It comes in 18 gorgeous shades! I tried it and it’s love at first swipe! Dior Addict Lacquer Stick is moisturizing on the lips. If you see my swatches below, color payoff and shine are great.

Kiss, 984 Dark Flower, 564 Melrose, 550 Tease, 794 Gamer My ultimate favorite is 550 Tease. If you’ve noticed, I’ve always loved natural peach or pink shades when it comes to lippies. They instantly make me look fresh. J’adore in Joy PHP 4,900 50ml; PHP 7,000 100ml Francois Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator, composed a new scent for the J’adore fragrance line: J’adore in Joy.
