New In: Chanel Mademoiselle and Embryolisse Cream
When it comes to perfume, I have two favourite brands. My daily go-to scent is Chanel’s Mademoiselle (and it has been ever since I started wearing perfume), and the other one, which is slightly more out-there, is Byredo’s Rose of No Man’s Land. I like the aesthetic of both Chanel and Byredo, have a penchant the shape of both the bottles, and most important: I am addicted to the scent of both fragrances. As I finished up my Chanel Mademoiselle perfume last month, I reinvested in a new bottle. The 100 ML bottle lasted me 1,5 years (whether this is long or short I would not know), so I opted for the 50 ML one to test how long it would last. I would not want to own more than 2 bottles of perfume, as these two already last such a long time and I would be scared for them to go past expiry date and lose their scent. Nothing worse than letting perfume go to waste, in my opinion.
The Embryolisse cream is a bit of a skincare favourite of mine. It is also the only day cream or moisturizer I use on my face. As I do not wear concealer nor foundation, I like to invest in a good day cream that does the trick for my skin. The Embryolisse cream is perfect for any dry patches; a couple of times a week I take a small dot and rub it out over these dry areas of my skin. It sinks into the skin quickly and smoothes out evenly. More than this basic cream I do not need (besides perhaps SPF50 in summer).
The nail polish on the right is Chanel’s Secret, a beige colour which I decided to buy as a little gift to myself. I currently only own one bottle of nail polish (Chanel’s Rouge Noir) and dark red is the only colour I wear on my nails (although I actually hardly wear it). The beige colour does not stand out at all, in fact it is barely there, but the subtle glow it gives nails gives off a refined look. I am not a fan of bright colours on nails as they distract rather than attract, but both the dark red colour and the beige colour can give a subtle extra to the outfit I happen to be wearing that day.
