Chic Chloé Gift Sets that Ladies will Surely Love!


chloe-perfume-ad


Come on, who hasn’t caught a glimpse of that stylish and ultimately chic bottle simply embellished with a ribbon? I still remember selling a few bottles of this lovely fragrance to guys who get easily swooned by the fact that it’s so feminine and classy, which makes it a great gift for their girlfriends.
Chloé has been popular for decades, from bags to fashion to fragrances, and continues to captivate a lot of women including hot celebrities.
Chloé is founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, an Egyptian-born Parisienne with a dark beauty and a bohemian spirit. Rejecting the stiff formality of the 50’s fashion, she creates soft, body conscious clothes from fine fabrics and called them “luxury prêt-à-porter”. Unique for their time, they are beautifully made clothes available off the rack.
And this holiday season, Chloé has launched limited edition gift sets, perfect for sweet, beautiful ladies who just love to smell great and elegant. And you’ll fall in love with these sets; adorable and chic packaging that matches the chic and sophisticated fragrance!
Capturing the spirit of women, the Chloé vision is not about one singular woman, but rather about the rich and varied personalities of all Chloé women. This fresh, smooth floral fragrance evokes sublime powdery rose. The effect is chic, comfortable, and entirely addictive. Top notes of pink peony, freesia, and lychee embody subtle freshness. At the heart, midnotes of magnolia flower, lily of the valley, and rose rise to sublimated femininity. A base of velvety elegance comes to fruition through cedarwood, amber, and honey.
Inspired by the details in Chloé’s fashion, the flacon’s heavy but softly curved and grooved glass reflects femininity and strength. The plated-silver top is embossed with the Chloé mark and adorned with a hand-tied ribbon.

Roses De Chloé is an invitation to tenderness. The rose immediately exudes incredible freshness. A sensation derived from the bergamot, which is gradually joined by a heart of damascena rose essence, modernised with a magnolia accord. Then, on the skin, the trail of white musk and amber, signature of the Chloé house.

See By Chloé embodies femininity while blending masculine codes in an urban-chic way. This fragrance captures the audaciousness and strong personality of the Chloé woman. An addictive floral fruity fragrance, it captures the irresistible and playful personality of a young woman fully embracing life. The fusing top of juicy bergamot and apple translate her energy and her urban edginess. Her natural femininity is conveyed through a beautiful floral bouquet of jasmine and ylang ylang that grows into a sexy veil of vanilla and addictive musks.
A strong and feminine bottle that revisits the Chloé codes combining high-end perfumery with modern details. The multi-faceted bottle with its silver ring, glass pleats and three adorable feet make the precious juice sparkle.

Gifts Made Easy: Eye-Candy Gift Sets from Marc Jacobs, Issey Miyake and Taylor Swift


One of the things I like about giving or receiving gift sets is that a lot of those available in stores nowadays also make the box or packaging itself look like it’s already a gift even without gift wrapper. You can normally see this in perfumes or body care items by designer brands and celebrities. And today, I’m sharing some eye-popping, eye-candy gift sets that are here for the holidays!
Marc Jacobs has been so famous for the past years and this designer has been synonymous with unique and classy style. The launch of the ‘DOT’ perfume collection has captured a lot of ladies, both young and young-at-heart. The combination of butterfly theme and the dots seemed simple but it was very catchy. Those black dots have become iconic of this designer’s style.

Marc Jacobs Dot Collection

EDP 100ml + Miniature 4ml + Body Lotion 150ml
DOT by Marc Jacobs is an alluring scent of a delectable blend of red berries, succulent dragon fruit, and sweet honeysuckle. The lush floral heart of the fragrance blooms with the addictive beautiful jasmine, mingled with energizing notes of coconut water and orange blossom. The scent rounds out with a feminine dry down of creamy vanilla, driftwood, and sensual musks.
The dotted bottle with butterflies is such an eye-candy and definitely a great gift idea whether for Christmas, birthday, Chinese New Year and even Valentine’s Day! This red and black combination is such a creative and practical choice.

Marc Jacobs Honey Collection
EDP 100ml + Body Lotion 150ml
Retail Price: RM361 (around USD112)
Honey by Marc Jacobs is a delicious scent of buzzing fragrance that energizes with the freshness of green pear and a bright splash of fruity punch and juicy mandarin. Orange blossom resides at the heart of the fragrance and mingles with the nectars of honeysuckle and peach for a note of sparkling femininity. Honey, vanilla, and smooth woods dry down to a warm, golden base.
The yellow and orange combination makes a fresh and lovable appeal. I think this is a great gift for ladies who love elegant, sweet scents that just exude cheerfulness.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Collection
EDT 125ml + Miniature 4ml + Body Lotion 150ml
Retail Price: RM360 (around USD112)
Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs is a whimsical interpretation of the original Daisy fragrance; this scent is fruitier, bubblier, and more fun. Open the bottle and you’ll be transported to a field of sunshine that bursts with the flirty scent of flowers and the cheerful sweetness of fruits. Its light, woody base infuses a subtle but sharp glimmer of musk for an unexpected twist of radiance. The eau de toilette bottle is probably one of the most iconic signatures of this designer fragrance brand. Those sweet flowers that adorn the cap is recognizable anywhere! Daisy by MJ is perfect for that sweet lady who exudes classic beauty and finesse.
Another designer label that has launched eye-candy collections is Issey Miyake. Famous for the classic scent, Issey Miyake, this brand has recently launched an edgy collection, Pleats Please.

Pleats Please Set by Issey Miyake
EDT 100ml + Prestige Spray 10ml + Body Lotion 75ml
Pleats Please is a joyful, optimistic and exuberant fragrance of “vertically pleated” flowery, fruity and woody structure signed by perfumer Aurelien Guichard. Its opening splashes with Asian hybrid fruit Nashi, generated by crossing apples and pears. The heart symbolizes femininity with floral accords of peony and sweet pea, while Indole molecule provides freshness and vigor to the composition. The base is generous with intensive accords of patchouli, cedar, vanilla absolute and white musk.The color play of red, orange and pink bands makes a fashion statement that reflects the runway collection from this designer.  
Being a lover of florale scents, I can’t help but notice this elegant, pink set — L’Eau D Issey Florale. Similar to Pleats Please, this floral scent collection uses soft pink-colored bands that embellish the box design.

L’Eau D Issey is an aquatic floral scent with transparent notes of lotus, freesia and cyclamen and juicy melon. The middle note of peony, lily and carnation reveals the perfume’s character. The end note is a refined woody scent with the notes of cedar, sandal, musk and amber.
And lastly for this eye-candy gift sets feature is Taylor Swift collection! Colorful, fun and simply perfect for Christmas, the Wonderstruck and Enchanted Wonderstruck sets are so adorable with these enchanting, magical themes. The colors are gorgeous and the patterns immediately give a feel of the season.

Gifts Made Easy – L’Occitane Gift Sets

October is here! Yeah, I’m kinda 15 days late to announce that. This is the time of the year when I miss my home country. In Philippines, all shopping malls will be beaming with Christmas decorations by this month. Christmas songs will be playing in the radio, TV shows will be starting with Christmas themes, offices will be planning for celebrations and, best of all, shopping season will be in the air! To satisfy my craving for this season of gifts, I’ve decided to start posting about gift items and share gift ideas. 


Personally, I enjoy receiving bath and body products in a set. But what makes it even more special is presentation. The way gifts are presented can make the actual gifts look more expensive or cheaper than their true value. It’s not that your gift should look expensive but paying attention to presentation sends a message that you took the time and effort to make it special to a friend or loved one. This is why I appreciate brands that provide extra service and care with their gift sets.  




For this first round of gift sets, I’ve chosen to share a Cherry Blossom set from L’Occitane. I chose a Cherry Blossom set of body lotion and shower gel. When I told the sales staff that it’s a gift, she carefully arranged it in a gift box. That’s great service. The box is very reflective of the brand – calming, peaceful, nature-inspired. 

L’Occitane Gift Box


I loved the pink paper with a clever, simple touch of the brand stamp sticker.

The products were neatly tucked under the pink paper. I’d be happy to receive something like this and I do hope my friend did enjoy this set. 

L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Shower Gel and Body Lotion


What’s even greater after buying several items from L’Occitane that day was receiving this lovely set of miniature fragrances. This box contained 4 different scents: Jasmin & Bergamote, Magnolia & Mure, Vanille & Narcisse, The Vert & Bigarade. All in 7.5ml each. I liked the Jasmin & Bergamote. 


L’Occitane Miniature Fragrance Set

And so my hunt for great gift sets has officially started. If you are thinking of giving a bath & body set to anyone, do check out L’Occitane gift sets. They also have selections for men which can be wonderful gifts for those guys who do care about their body and skin. 


Enjoy giving gifts to your loved ones!




Dry Skin? Rough Heels? Righteous Butter Body Lotion to the Rescue!

Always had those irritating rough and cracked heels? Dry and itchy legs? Fret no more…I’ve found the righteous solution to these problems…Soap & Glory’s The Righteous Butter Body Lotion!


I think most of the butter lotions or creme available in the market are too sticky, greasy or oily. But I guess a lot of us are looking for a moisturizing product that will REALLY moisturize the body, solve those dry heels but won’t be sticky. Otherwise, with the hot weather, it’s just gonna be icky the whole day. I’ve tried different foot creams, foot lotion and body butter to hopefully improve my cracked heels. But after applying on the heels and soles, I just cannot walk too soon or I would feel the floor very slippery. 

But with The Righteous Butter Body Lotion, it’s just so great! First, it’s NOT greasy at all. Second, my skin immediately feels moisturized. Third, I can actually walk without the slippery feeling. And fourth, it smells so good, it’s sooo addicting. So yeah, I apply it all over my arms, legs and feet. Sometimes, on Aden’s feet as well. 

The packaging is also very functional and interesting. Because it comes in a pump, it’s very convenient to use. Unlike most of the other body butter products which come in a twist container. Too troublesome to open and close (especially when your hands are so greasy after application). 

And on the side, you will see this very interesting and cute message. Informative and yet very catchy and cool. 


BUTTER SAFE THAN SORRY! 











This lotion contains shea and cocoa seed butters, sweet almond and rose hip seed oils, aloe vera, vitamin E, a special seaweed-sourced rough skin smoother, and Soap & Glory’s bergamot, peach, vanilla and sandalwood classic ‘pink’ fragrance. 

Purchased this addiction at Sephora KLCC. Around RM39.
