Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte EDT concentree

Posted in fragrance with tags , , on September 11, 2009 by LPB

Sparkling & Spontaneous.

The beloved classic in a crisp, modern version, to reveal a sheer and spirited heart.

This EDT resembles a fantasy bouquet, fresh and invigorating, evocative of the morning dew.


Notes: Magnolia accord, Jasmine absolute, Sicillian Lemon, Bergamot, Neroli, White Flowers, White Musk and Florentine Iris.

It smells crisp, soapy & citrusy with a hint of oceanic fresh on me; i do not detect much “greens” in it. I do not think it resembles the original Cristalle at all.

Although it’s called EDT concentree, it only last about 3 hours on me.


ILA Face oil for glowing radiance

Posted in fragrance, skincare with tags , , , , , , on July 4, 2009 by LPB

Ila Face Oil is a nourishing treatment that gives skin a glowing radiance.

This organic face oil has been called a ‘little miracle’. Your skin will rediscover its natural bloom and you will notice a healthy glow to your face. By revitalising skin at a deep level, it nourishes and heals.


Ila Face Oil protects against the sun’s rays, nourishes and heals the skin and also works beautifully as a makeup primer. It wears beautifully under make up and is a great moisturiser for all skin types, even acne-prone. It is 92.52% organic and comes in a white, opaque bottle with dropper.

The essential oil of damascena rose otto deeply regenerates and nourishes the skin’s cells and imparts glowing radiance while argan oil and rosehip seed oil are high in anti-oxidants and fatty acids to fight wrinkles and help skin cells to regenerate.


I call this Winner of Marie Claire UK’s Prix D’Excellence International Beauty Award a  ” Fragrant Facial “. The ultra nourishing oil glides on smoothly, absorbed  instantly, leaves a glowing veil and intoxicating rose aroma. It’s great as a facial massage oil. I loves using it as a pampering treat underneath my night cream before retiring to bed.

Ingredients: Wild-Grown Argan Oil (Argania Spinosa Kernal)*, Rosehip Seed Oil (Rosa Canina)*, Sandalwood (Santalam Spicatum), Rose Otto Oil (Rosa Damascena Flower Oil), Vitamin E Oil (Tocopherol Extract), Naturally Occurring Citronellol, Farnesol, Linalool.

Sundari gulkand candle

Posted in fragrance with tags , , on April 17, 2009 by LPB

Gulkand is a traditional Indian recipe. This scent offers a floral base and a suggestion of sweetness. The rose oils are a legend to open the heart and reduce fire creating an atmosphere of balance. The layering of fresh rose petals spun with a bit of honey and sugar mature for a month before adding a splash of milk to create a delectable bouquet.


This intoxicating, sensual candle burns for 45 hours. I uses it at night time to unwind myself.
