January 2012 - Five Random Faves (Part 1)

** NEWS FLASH ** Dear friends, we believe in all the goodness the Transit of Venus is poised to bring us in 2012! And to celebrate what's been written in the stars, we have loads of exciting brand-new lifestyle features in store, so stay tuned!

Introducing our new monthly feature purely dedicated to the favourites that make us tick in the lifestyle and artistic departments at large! So sit back and be prepared to be tickled by magique!


Fave #1: Smelling fresh with 'Daisy' by Marc Jacobs!

If you could bottle up youth, this would be it, a fragrance that describes itself as a 'sparkling floral bouquet with a fresh spirited edge'. La Baguette has been a devout since coming across a free sample. We have treated ourselves to a bottle of the 50ml eau de toilette spray a few weeks back and ever since each day has been an olfactory journey into a world of freshness and light-hearted feminity!

Based on first impressions, just check the ornamental statement of a bottle this is, with its trademark pop art daisies. Not a perfume that will shy away from the vanity table or bathroom shelf! This bottle is made to be noticed.

The fragrance is equally remarkable with an explosion of surprising scents all combining together into an hymn to the modern young woman. Top notes of wild strawberry, violet leaves and ruby red grapefruit recreate 'luscious natural freshness'. Meanwhile heart notes of violet, jasmine and gardenia produce 'luminous modern vintage'. And finally base notes of vanilla infusion, musks and white woods embrace 'smooth softness and warm sensuality'. This is an encore as far as we are concerned and this fragrance is never out of place, be it in the office, in a soirée or on holiday. A must that doesn't take itself too seriously, yet will never let you down! (to be continued)
