Winter Skin Saviours

Winter Skin SavioursHaving a reliable skin care routine year round is as rare as an empty Saturday in Selfridges, which pretty much means it’s not a thing.

As the temperature slowly declines and you begin to hibernate into a plush combination of cashmere roll necks and fur lined coats; your style changes from linens and loafers to tweed and chelsea boots, theres one extra thing to consider – what’s the perfect fragrance to accompany that new Tom Ford knit on a chilly winters day?

Maybe you’re thinking Mediterranean hesperidic notes, warm woody tones or a zesty fragrance with a hint of basil that transports you from here to somewhere just a little bit warmer – here is my fragrance for this fall and why you need a scent that’s going to define your winter style and perfectly pull together that heavy knit and silk scarf.

CREME DE LA MER

New purchase alert. Creme De La Mer.
