Quite literally the personification of an Italian summer, Acqua di Parma’s collaboration with La Double J emulates the brand’s refined style and flair. As the first time the two have worked together, the maximalism of the California cool lifestyle brand known for its vintage prints is fused with the Mediterranean heritage synonymous with Acqua di Parma to create the capsule of new formulas. Rolling out to bath and body products, the collection sees the introduction of a shower foam, body lotion and a body scrub all imagined in the house favourites of Arancia di Capri, Fico di Amalfi and Mirto di Panarea.
Following on from the success of Mr Tom Ford’s cult Beau de Jour, the now iconic classic has been rolled out to a masculine body spray. Housed in a sleek white can, this sharp yet refreshing fragrance exudes Ford’s signature sex appeal. Manly notes African Rosemary, Oakmoss and Patchouli make this grooming essential stylish and irresistible. Wear it alone as a lighter alternative to cologne or layer it as a base to elevate a long-lasting scent.
Perfect for warmer climes and those with slightly oiler skin, Barbara Sturm’s much-loved Face Cream now comes in a lighter formula. Active ingredients including Ginger, Bisabolol and Panthenol enrich the satin texture of this wonderous cream which is easily absorbed into the skin whilst delivering a powerful dose of moisture. The result is flawless, dewy skin free of irritation and glowing – consider it heaven in a jar.
Fabulous hair in a bottle comes in the form of Oribe’s ultra-luxe Shampoo and Conditioner for Brilliance & Shine. Housed in the signature shelf-worthy bottles, the duo is enriched with tress-loving active ingredients ranging from Corn, Coconut and Oat-Based cleansers through to the hair saving botanical extracts of Amber and Watermelon. Gentle enough for regular use, the shampoo is the epitome of everyday luxury and leaves locks looking illuminated with shine and silky soft.
