The Fragrance Edit
Scent-u-al! We’ve both worn signature fragrances since we were in our early 20s, But that doesn’t mean we don’t love to try new things and find some faves for the men in our life.
1. Dior Jadore Eau De Parfum, 100ml $169
: Floral and flirty with notes of Jasmine and Mandarin, this sultry perfume first launched in 1999 and became an instant hit for Dior. Sophisticated yet fresh (bit like me *wink*), this scent screams spring. Leave them wanting more with Jadore…
2. Yves Saint Laurent Opium Black Eau de Parfum – 90ml $149
: This intoxicating scent is feminine yet glamorous. With a sweet sensuality all its own this parfum is a YSL classic for good reason and irresistible on warm nights. The perfect accompaniment to any spring fling to make sure he won’t forget you in a hurry honey.
3. Issey Miyake for Men Pour Homme, 125ml $69.99
My man wears this all the time, and it’s a subtly sexy scent that I can’t get enough of. It’s fresh, warm and woody with a touch of spice. A classic aftershave for handsome dudes that will never go out of style.
4. Bal D’Afrique Eau de Parfum by Byredo, $269.00 for 100ml
Nic: I've only recently diverged from an old obsolete fave and found my new signature scent. Polished elegance in a bottle, which I’ve currently got on high rotation. It’s the perfect balance of woody notes and fragrant florals – subtle, refined and vibrant - just like me! *wink*
5. Si Eau de Parfum by Giorgio Armani, $149.99 for 100ml
Nic: There’s something special about this perfume. It embodies strength, elegance and charisma, all important qualities to me. It lingers on the skin all day without being overpowering and intense, the perfect blend of florals, fruit and musk.
6. Polo Black Eau de Toilette by Ralph Lauren, $109.00 for 200ml
Nic: I gifted hubby this scent many years ago and he hasn’t used anything else since. It’s a gorgeous, bold and sophisticated scent that suits him to a tee. Sometimes I even steal a little spritz for me... so its twice as nice!
All available Chemist Warehouse, 105 Rokeby Road.
Can’t live without…
Two beauty items that Bev & Nic absolutely can not live without…
Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil in Dolce Vita, $43 Mecca Cosmetica.
Last October I heard blogger Elle Ferguson talk about her deep love for this lip pencil. I got one for my birthday in November and have literally used it every day since. It’s a matte red, which I slick a clear lip gloss over. Goes with everything. Game. Changer!
Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream by bareMinerals, $53 Mecca Cosmetica.
I have sensitive skin so I’m always on the lookout for gentle, oil free options that won’t irritate my skin but still protect me from the sun. I opt for an easy-do natural, dewy glow each day and love that I can wear this on its own or layer it under make up. Plus, its low-tox, so kind to the environment too!
Available at Mecca Cosmetica 13/1 Rokeby Road
