Penhaligon’s is in my eyes one of the classiest brand ever. The bottles of perfume look vintage, the packaging is beautiful and unique. And the smell, incredible. Honestly, I had never smelled such a fragrance before. Not heady (old perfumes tend to be too strong), but delicate. It almost smells like a refined soap.

My best friend offered to me a beautiful box of miniatures, which permitted me to discover the scent of them. I wanted one for a long time but didn’t dare to order one, since it’s quite expensive. One of my favorites is Artemisia: powdery, floral and fruity, this fragrance is delicate and feminine. The other day, I realised there was sales on the website, it was the occasion to order it, with a rose-scented candle. This latter fills my room with a subtile warm smell, perfect for winter days. Recieving such a parcel made my day.


What is more, this brand was created under Queen Victoria’s reign. If you know me, you know how I’m fascinated by the Victorian Era: culturally, scientifically, socially, politically, it was a groundbreaking moment. This period was a time when lifestyle, decorating, fashion became important so if you love aestheticism and decoration, you’ll be interested. By the way, I’m currently watching the Victoria TV show, and I looove it. I know it’s quite romanticized but my romantic heart succumbed. This TV show is also very pleasant to watch, the house decorations and clothing are remarkable, aswell as the music.




Autumn shades


Autumn is finally here! Unfortunately I’m already sick, but this season is my favorite one. The colors and the light of nature are just beautiful: red tones, bright leaves… Last Sunday, the weather was very nice so I took advantage of it to take some pictures.







For a long time, I wondered if Diptyque skincare products were as subtile as their fragrances and my answer is YES! I also feared that they weren’t efficient even if they’re quite expensive. I recieved some samples of skincare products a few months ago and just fell in love with this face oil. Infused with flowers and plants, its scent is divine and it will provide you a good hydratation. I use it just before sleeping and massage my skin (I clean it before of course). This moment is even more pleasant when you’re exhausted after a long day and you just need to treat yourself. By the way, if you don’t know how to massage your skin, here’s a good video by Into The Gloss.


Do Son is perfect for spring days. Tuberose, orange blossom, pink pepper and musc: a perfect combo! It’s like a refreshing dive in flowers. Have you ever tried it? What do you think of Diptyque?


Beauty bag


What’s currently in my beauty bag?

The double Wear Estée Lauder foundation: These last few weeks I watched a lot of videos on youtude (thanks holidays!) and I heard a lot of positive reviews of this foundation, so I decided to give it a try. This foundation is a VERY GOOD product, it covers everything and I like the texture a lot. It also lasts for hours. The only negative point is that it doesn’t have a little end-piece, so you can’t really control how much you use and you waste it… Anyway, I highly recommend it to you!!!

The Clarins Instant Concealer: I’ve already talked about it in another post, but it has become my favorite one, I use it everyday! If you dark circles like me this one is for you.

The Diorshow iconic mascara: My absolute favorite was the Lancôme Doll Eyes. I also heard a lot of positive comments on this one so I decided to try it and WOW! I really like the curve brush and it catches all your lashes, makes them thicker and longer.

Rose fusion nailpolish by Chanel: a sparkly grey with pink shades, which is wonderful. Not too kitsch and not too loud.

Kiehl’s ultra facial cream: I have a very sensitive skin which is also very dry. I bought it maybe 2 months ago and I use it everyday, every morning and sometimes at night, or I use an oil. This product is really efficient, I love it.

Fresh lipbalm: I bought the mini version of the lipscrub and the lipbalm in limited edition to give them a try, and they became essentials! Every Winter I used to have very dry lips, but not this year thanks to them.

Coco Chanel fragrance: I loooooove this scent. I first wear it 3 or 4 years ago and every year I purchase it again for fall/winter. It’s made from ylang-ylang, orange blossom and mandarin.

Chanel compact power: I think the perfect powder! Quite expensive but it lasts a long time. Unfortunately I’ve broken the little mirror in it.

Rouge coco in « Mademoiselle »: a nude pink shade, I also wear it almost everyday. You can wear it with a intense eye make-up, it would not be too much.

And what’s in yours?

Winter essentials

It has been a while I didn’t post anything, I was essentially focusing on my instagram account. So I decided to present you some of my favorites products these last few weeks, even if I already posted these pictures on instagram.


I always wanted to purchase the Diorific collection which is a limited edition you can buy every year, before Christmas period. I chose the lipstick is the shade « Diorling » a beautiful red, a bit dark which is perfect for festivities, and it goes perfectly with the nailpolish.


The « ambre » diptyque candle is just amaaaazing. The scent is so addictive and it’s the perfect wintery scent for your home. Also very natural in comparison to other brands.


I’m so in love with this vintage tea set I found on etsy (lorabelle vintage shop). It’s called « Un hiver à Paris » and is from the 50s!


I recieved this gorgeous book for Christmas. Megan Hess is a famous fashion illustrator and worked with several luxury brands. She decided to focus on the life of Coco Chanel, her work and impact on fashion industry. The drawings are gorgeous, I highly recommand it to you!


As you can see on my pictures, I love golden shades and I love YSL products for their quality and packaging. This nailpolish is just gorgeous, I feared it might be a little kitsch but the color is subtile. The tray is from Zara Home and the earrings from Zara (a birhtday present which I loove).


These two products are just perfect for your lips. The lipbalm is sooo moisturizing, I use it every single day.



YSL arty ring. My favorite one, I wear it everyday. I recieved it for my birthday a few years ago.


Dior Blush « cocktail peach » – Dior nailpolish « Dune ». The earrings are not the Tribal earrings by Dior, they’re an imitation I found in a cute little shop in Strasbourg. Notebooks are from the Musée d’Orsay.
How wonderful is this bathbomb? I almost don’t want to use it. It’s apple scented, I found it in a shop « Beauty success ».
