Here is what is happening in the beauty world at the moment...

All I see is the Med when I look at this beautiful bottle! "French luxury jewellery, watch and fragrance brand Van Cleef & Arpels has announced the launch of its new limited edition fragrance, Aqua Oriens. The light and fruity fragrance comprises notes of Tahiti lime, pear, honeysuckle, orange blossom, musk and amber. Inspired by a jewellery designer’s ring, the bottle echoes fine jewellery and is crowned with a faceted stone in shades of green and blue. It is held in metal claws that set off the coloured glass." This launches on the 2nd of February and will cost £54.

The packaging of this new home fragrance line just speaks to me in ways no other has. Does that sound weird? Probably. "Fashion and lifestyle brand hush has introduced its first ever home fragrance collection. The new offering spans candles, diffusers and linen and room spray across bespoke fragrances. The brand's signature scent, made up of a blend of soft woods, florals and lemon zests features in the Linen & Room Spray, while the Candle & Diffuser range comes in three scents, including: Rose & Cassis, Fig & Blackberry Leaf and Pomegranate & Peppercorn. Candles are available in two sizes (80g or 250g) and are packaged in laboratory-inspired glass jars. Prices range from £12 to £30."

One for those who want to treat their feet! "Foot specialist Margaret Dabbs has announced the launch of two new gift sets for Christmas. The Discovery Kit comprises a 50ml version of the Intensive Hydrating Foot Lotion and 50ml Hydrating Foot Soak, a 30ml Intensive Treatment Foot Oil and 30ml Exfoliating Foot Mousse.
