Fragrant and Fresh
Luxury perfume brand Amouage has unveiled Bracken Woman, a green floral fragrance for women that takes freshness to the next level.
Designed mainly by Christopher Chong, the creative director at Amouage, Bracken Woman is a tribute to the flower-power movement of the 1960s. The air of freedom, mysticism, love and peace comes from a harmonious combination where the green notes of violet leaves, galbanum and fern mix with the juicy accords of forest fruits. The stunningly fresh opening leads to the heart note where a beautiful accord of soft and sensual leather wraps around a bouquet of lilies, narcissus and chamomiles. The perfume’s seductive and subtly balsamic wood base comprises patchouli, vetiver and birch.
Bracken Woman is encapsulated in a coral red flask topped with a white bung and a pink Swarovski crystal embedded in it.
Eye Lift Without Surgery
Japanese cosmetics company Menard has expanded its exclusive skin-care line Embellir with a new product called Menard Embellir Eye Cream 20 g. This innovative cream brings comprehensive and intensive nourishing to the skin of the eye contour, targeting the cause of wrinkling to reduce and smoothen out existing lines and prevent new ones from forming. The facial cream contains an alchemilla extract to comprehensively fight free radicals. The ingredient also helps strengthen the muscles around the eyes.
The secret behind Embellir’s powerful effect are extracts from black and red Reishi mushrooms that do miracles to the skin. The extracts cleanse skin cells and extend their lifespan, facilitating the production of energy and stimulating cell division. The Reishi effect starts at the genetic level for the optimal growth of all skin components in both the dermis and epidermis.
