Perhaps the pinnacle of luxury and the answer to flawlessly glowing skin, Sensai’s Ultimate The Concentrate is a game-changer for tired, dull and skin in need of some TLC. Enriched with active ingredients, including Vital L-Carnitine and the collection’s signature Sakura Eternal Complex, the rich concentrate stimulates the skin to accelerate cell turnover. Designed to combat the signs of ageing, this miracle worker can undo the damage caused to skin by UV rays over time, leaving it looking visibly renewed, silky and glowing.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian
Simplistic and subtle yet luxuriously appointed, Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Aqua Universalis evokes the freshness of crisp cotton linen. Border lining the boundaries of skin to cloth, this unisex fragrance radiantly exudes the art of perfume in an addictive blend of green bergamot, Egyptian jasmine and Moroccan rose absolutes and musky light woods. Adaptable to almost any occasion, Aqua Universalis is the perfect foundational scent for any fragrance wardrobe.
Look no further for luscious locks than Christophe Robin’s Volumizing Range, echoing the brand’s ethos of nature through its products, Robin’s rose-infused products are devoted to colour treated hair. A particular highlight in the collection is his Instant Volumizing Mist with Rose Water, a miracle worker combining care and root-boosting properties into a lightweight spray. Perfect as a pick-me-up between washes or used on towel-dried hair to achieve root-lift, this volumizer gives hair enviable height and a gorgeous scent.
TOM FORD’s iconic shades have been remastered in a striking collection aptly named MOST WANTED. Seductive, provocative and alluring, these adaptable colours are imagined in four different finishes, Cream, Matte, Metallic and Satin Matte. Five different shades premiere the collection in a capsule of reddish burgundies, oranges and corals all embodying the femininity synonymous with FORD’s collections. Expressive and appealing, the formulas are also packed full of high-performance ingredients ranging from chamomilla flower oil, Brazilian murumuru butter and Vitamin E derivative.
Sisley’s cult Sisleÿa l’Intégral Anti-Age is the brand’s ultra-innovative answer to a youthful, dewy complexion. Coveted by the beauty industry’s finest, this hero moisturiser tackles the visible signs of ageing and combats the epigenetics that causes cells to age over time. Active ingredients enrich the cell lifecycle promoting stimulation and regeneration, leaving skin restructured and looking its best. In this latest formulation of the supercream, three key active ingredients have been added optimising the lifecycle of the cells. Lindera extract helps to resynchronise the skin’s biorhythms, while Persian Acacia extract promotes energy production and yeast and soya protein complex defends the cellular DNA against behavioural stress.
Launching their debut into the world olfactory creations, Sophie and Didier Gillon have imagined two collections of perfume, Palazzo Nobile and Collezione Privata in an embarkment of passion and enlivenment. Encapsulating the charm of Venice, the collections which fall under the Valmont Group evoke the flamboyance of the magical city at the heart of the fragrances and collide the realms of artistry and fine fragrance in a first for the brand. The first in the Collezione Privata line is Jazzy Twist which emulates the spirit of a free and elusive woman. A beautiful gourmand scent made up of florals, Jazzy Twist is a dazzling blend of magnolia and tuberose chord, warm notes of Madagascan black pepper and delectable notes of chocolate, patchouli and vanilla extract.
