Flowers are a nice gift for your mother on Mothers Day I guess, but if you want something that looks good, smells great, and lasts way longer than a bunch of flowers – pick up a cute perfume for roughly the same price as a great floral arrangement.

New year, new fragrance! High fashion accessory house Jimmy Choo have developed a new fragrance specifically for the evening. FLASH is a white floral fragrance that starts off sweet and softens into a softer scent.

The scent was created by perfumer Christine Nagel (Christian Dior Miss Dior Chérie, Dolce & Gabbana The One) “I imagined the sounds of heels, clicking on the streets of New York, London and Paris”.

The bottle was inspired by a modernist chandelier from the 1970s, but also references a retro camera flash. The cool blue-silver colour is a nod to the ultraviolet lights of a nightclub and the flash of paparazzi bulbs.

Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Strawberry, Tangerine

Heart Notes: Tuberose, Jasmine, White Lily

Base Notes: Heliotope, White Woods

The campaign, shot by Steven Meisel features supermodel Natasha Poly sprawled on a nightclub floor with her FLASH bulb bottle in her 5inch jewelled Jimmy Choos.

This new soft, floral fragrance will be available exclusively from Debenhams Beauty Hall from the 14th January and nationwide from 28th January. EDP £36 for 40ml.


You’ll remember I mentioned this fragrance in a previous post here as it wasn’t so long ago, I had a nice whiff of this fragrance at a press day last month where we couldn’t even see the bottle yet. Well cut to a few weeks later and Hugo Boss have released their ad campaign featuring Gweneth Paltrow as the face of BOSS Nuit Pour Femme. The alluring and feminine scent is inspired by the most iconic symbol of feminine style – the little black dress (LBD) and the confident reassurance it gives to women.

“I was honored and very happy to be chosen as the face of BOSS Nuit Pour Femme. To me, the BOSS woman is driven, ambitious, and goes after what she wants, but she balances being strong and very feminine at the same time – characteristics that I strive towards in my own life.” Gweneth Paltrow

This is the first female fragrance I’ve liked from Boss, which is a shame because the Boss Orange bottle was trés cute, this one is too; can’t go wrong with a bit of sleek black and a hint of gold! I’m really looking forward to it’s release!
