Fragrances are one of my favourite gifts in the world, and with Valentines Day just around the corner, I’ve picked out nine sweet smelling, perfect-for-love fragrances that haven’t been featured on StyleScoop before. As a special Valentines Day treat, I’ve paired these scents with three new lipstick launches, because everyone knows that lipsticks and fragrances are the perfect companions.

Hearts In Their Eyes! The New Vogue “Gift of Love” Sunnies

Hearts In Their Eyes! The New Vogue “Gift of Love” Sunnies

With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, Vogue have created a new, special collection that will have you seeing hearts! Two glamorous styles of sunglasses have been added to their range that perfectly reflect Vogue Eyewear’s style and inspiration: audacious, trendy, colorful, contemporary. We’re absolutely in love with the cute crystal heart shaped detail that has been applied the outside of each model’s temples. The VO 2792SB model has a retro look and a timeless elegance, characterized by a round, oversized shape and a thick and slightly cat-eyed frame, enriched by the crystal heart detail on the temple. The VO2791SB model is more rigorous with a humorous feel that distinguishes this model. It has a square, thick and modern frame that perfectly merges with the fun, sweet charm of the crystal heart detail showing on the hinge. Both models are available with gradient lenses and a lovely special packaging, the perfect way to say “I love you” whenever you want to celebrate your love!

pure DKNY A Drop of Rose

pure DKNY A Drop of Rose

Valentines Day is the perfect time to add some new, seductive scents to your fragrance collection… I’m not the biggest fan of floral scents, but I don’t mind a touch of floral. And that’s exactly what you can expect from the new pureDKNY fragrance, A Drop of Rose. It’s a lovely, pure fragrance with a touch of classic Turkish rose! pureDKNY rose begins in Turkey’s Isparta valley in the Anatolian flower fields, where the delicate pink blossoms of rose damascene variety are harvested early each summer. It follows a generations-old process that’s virtually unaffected by modern technology: The harvest season takes place each year in May/June, and each flower is hand-picked, one by one in the cool, pre-dawn hours. By season’s end, 2500 tons of petals have been bagged, weighed, and transported by truck to the distillery where they are gently rolled and processed through 26 stills. The end product is essential oil of rose, a potent raw material that’s later incorporated into the fragrance. This lovely new fragrance launches on counters today, February 4th 2013 and comes in three size variants, all of which are EDP (eau de Perfume) – my favourite 🙂 pureDKNY rose 30ml (R540), 50ml (R750) and 100ml (R955)

Demi Moore Brings Out Valentine’s Day Jewellery with a Cause

Demi Moore Brings Out Valentine’s Day Jewellery with a Cause

Jack Vartanian shows off his sophisticated sense of style by creating luxury jewellery for the woman who likes to embody femininity, attitude and sensuality. Vartanian boasts a star-studded clientele, including the likes of red carpet regulars Eva Mendes, Drew Barrymore, Catherine Zeta Jones and catwalk queen, Gisele Bündchen, who has named Vartanian as one of her favourite designers. His lustworthy gems are not intended for the woman who only wears jewels on formal occasions but, as Vartanian puts it, the woman who wants “the freedom to wear precious stones with a pair of jeans” – not that we needed an excuse. Demi Moore is also known to frequently adorn herself with Jack Vartanian gems but she’s taking her association with the Brazilian jeweller one step further. Demi and husband, Ashton Kutcher, have collaborated with Vartanian to create a collection of necklaces in the shape of handcuffs, priced in the range of R5 100 to R15 300 in variations of white, yellow and rose gold with black and white diamonds. The best part is that it’s for a worthy cause. Demi and Ashton are known for their strong stance on social issues and have a non-profit organisation that raises awareness about…
