A sudden shower cooling the air: the romantic smell of London after a rainsquall when water has washed away frivolity, leaving only a zesty and triumphant breeze with a soft echo of the storm. The strength of bergamot, cardamom and violet is tempered by birch tree and a dusting of patchouli.
Wind caresses on the face, marine notes in the air, sensations of freedom and exaltation. Curacao Bay is a voyage to the blue horizon. The natural Grey Amber infusion, rare, with the iodine facets, confers to this perfume a truly warm oceanic cocktail of scents.

Jeremy Scott has taken his creative daring much further. Fresh is a luxury fragrance presented in a package almost identical to a famous multi-purpose household cleaning spray. The designer’s idea is to oppose the luxury and preciousness of an essence of haute couture with the most ordinary and common packaging of products used for domestic cleaning, thus creating the maximum dichotomy between high and low, between exclusive and massive. He is not the first designer to break the mold under cover of this same argument, and although making an effort of abstraction we come to understand it from an artistic perspective and admit that point of impudence, provocation and humour.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies (35%). It can be found in the skin, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments, as well as other areas such as blood vessels, eyes and teeth, together with hyaluronic acid and elastin are the ones in charge of keeping the elasticity in the skin and a radiant young face, but what happens as we get older?

Some of the most popular gifts for Christmas that are suitable for anyone are tech gadgets and home items, some smaller, other bigger, you don’t need to break your bank account to find very nice gifts in these categories, so here I would share some options that I tried and loved and other that I found and consider very nice options too.
Mini Gifts and Stocking Fillers are probably one of the best things for me as they would normally be products that I wouldn’t buy them for myself but I end up using them a lot when I receive those random gifts, probably because they are everyday mini items we don’t pay that much attention but we don’t need to spend the money we don’t have to make a lovely gift either so here I share few options I have been trying and loving.
Crystal Noir is a fragrance that already has its years in the perfume market and continues to be a highly recommended perfume in the mass market because its price is usually quite affordable for Versace and the fragrance itself conquers easily especially during the cold season.
