HEAVEN SCENT

Le Vestiaire des Parfums are unisex fragrances that interpret centrepieces of the Yves Saint Laurent wardrobe with dedications to the house’s signature clothing, like Trench, Tuxedo and Leather. The latest nod is to an iconic piece that has defined the house’s history, Blouse – the sheer blouse that scandalised the 1960s. So what does a fragrant composition of the blouse smell like? It’s floral with sensual damask rose bud, pink peppercorn, fresh citrus and powdery white musk. In short, it smells how you would imagine a Saint Laurent blouse looks: silky, timeless, elegant and sexy. Le Vestiaire des Parfums Blouse, €215 for 125ml, is available exclusively at Brown Thomas.

HAIR THERAPY

Alfaparf Milano is the first haircare brand to launch a range to protect hair against pollution. With a new three-step in-salon treatment, the first of which is a Detoxifying Mud Treatment, hair is cleansed with purifying kaolin clay and activated carbon. As Ronan Markey, MD at Sebastian Marks puts it, “Pollution gets under the cuticle and raises it, causing yellowing, dullness and damaged hair. The mud is like a sponge, absorbing impurities and toxic substances from the hair.” The Semi di Lino Detoxifying Mud Treatment is available in Alfaparf Milano salons from €25.
