A Floral Fragrance For Spring


In my teens and my early twenties I only ever wore one fragrance. Then when I moved to Sydney eight years ago I began working at Estee Lauder in their PR department. Specifically working on their portfolio of designer fragrances. I went from owning just one fragrance, to many. And soon had a collection big enough to switch up my scent every day of the week. Since then I have always had an extensive range to choose from. Until now. When all at once, every bottle seemed to come to an end at the same time.

I am such a creature of habit, so I thought I would purchase something a little different this time. This weekend I paid a visit to Mecca at The Intersection in Paddington. They have an amazing range, including unique personal and home fragrances which you can’t find in any of the major department stores. I always see Gypsy Water from Byredo on Instagram, so I was almost certain I would love it. But after finally having a chance to smell it, I decided it wasn’t quite the right scent for me.

The girls at Mecca helped me go through the entire Byredo range, without actually having to smell everything! And quite quickly narrowed my selection down to just a handful of options which would suit my fragrance style. I fell in love with Inflorescence, which is a fragrance especially created to celebrate the beginning of Spring. That too seemed fitting! I also picked up two new Byredo candles for my home, which are just as beautiful as the personal fragrance range.

It’s always nice to switch up your fragrance depending on your day, mood or the weather! So I also wanted to purchase a second. I’ve had Chloe’s original EDT on my wish list for so long. So it was a very simple decision. Centred around the classically beautiful rose, Chloe offers a vibrant, modern take on the traditional flower. Mecca don’t sell this fragrance in-store but you can buy it through their website here.

Find out a little more about each scent below….

Byredo Loose Lips Candle. A beautifully feminine and fruity scent, inspired Byredo founder Ben Gorham’s childhood memories of his mother’s lipsticks. A fusion of rose petals, Morello cherries, orris root and delicate notes of violets. Once used to fragrance lipsticks, this velvety candle adds a woman’s touch to any room.

Byrdeo Loveless Candle. A deep and mysterious scented candle, captured in a effortlessly cool, gloss-black vessel with a contemporary edge. Adoxal and mandarin notes are released upon lighting, offering an air of freshness to an otherwise moody and exotic scent. Notes of petitgrain, wild tuberose, papyrus and black cedarwood linger.

Byredo Inflorescenc Eau de Parfum. Celebrating the onset of spring, this captivating scent is a stroll through overgrown flourishing flowers and captures the essence of bright blooms as they reach their peak. A heady blend of pink freesia, lily of the valley and fresh jasmine make for an alluring, joyous aroma.

Chloe Signature Eau de Parfum. Composed of pink peony, freesia, lychee, magnolia, lily of the valley, rose, cedarwood, amber and honey. This seductive scent is both comforting and intriguing. Encased in a beautiful bottle with real silver plating, and finished with a hand-tied ribbon. This fragrance will look beautiful placed any dressing table.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia

Mercedes-Benz Presents Maticevski - Backstage - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2016

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia begins today, which means among many other things, that I have spent the last week or so mentally rifling through my wardrobe, writing off everything I own and slowly panicking that I will literally have nothing to wear. After all I am only attending four out of a potential six days so every outfit needs to be perfect.

In an attempt to fill those gaps in my Fashion Week wardrobe, I took to the web and made a few last minute purchases from a range of Australian designers and brands I admire. Completing each and every look head to toe. So, here is a small edit of the key items that I will be wearing this Fashion Week…

Chloe Drew Small Leather Shoulder Bag. I don’t want to lug a big heavy bag around all day so I will be cutting down my handbag essentials and packing them into into my new Chloe Shoulder Bag. Not only will it be easier to get around with a smaller bag. It’s also the perfect option for day-to-night.

Chanel Ballet Flats. This Fashion Week I’ll be living in my Chanel Ballet flats. I know everyone else will be in heels, but I want to make sure I am comfortable when I’m racing from one show to the next. That I’m not likely to trip over myself at any stage; And they are perfectly paired with every look.

Keepsake The Label Vertigo Skirt. My Keepsake Vertigo Skirt is such a staple in my closet as it can be worn anywhere and quite literally goes with everything. It’s also a little more special than your basic black skirt with its flared panel details and beautiful luxe satin fabric.

I’ll be posting a tight edit of everything you need to know and see from each day, as well as putting together a detailed debrief on each of my own looks, all my favourite shows and beauty trends at the end of the week. For instant updates check out the hashtag #MBFWA and make sure you follow me on Instagram by clicking here.
