Gift guide: tree trinkets



This Works beauty crackers

This is a very quick heads up on some of the affordable luxury beauty trinkets that are still available for the holiday season. To me, these beauty crackers and tree trinkets are no-brainers as they tend to be cult items and best selling people pleasers. Plus they come in at around £10-£20 which clearly means it would be rude not to buy yourself a little something for your troubles.

I can personally vouch for the Eve Lom Kiss Mix lip balm, the Caudalie Divine Oil, the Aromatherapy Associates bath and shower oil and the This Works sleep stuff. I use and love them all.

This round-up wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the Jo Malone London cracker. It’s not pictured because it’s sold out on all my affiliates, but you can probably pick one up in store or on the Jo Malone London website. These are slightly more pricy at £36 but they’re such a lovely treat and do contact three miniature products (the deets are here). As expected, the crackers are selling out fast at JML (as well as the Orange Bitters cologne and candle, and the advent calendar – no surprise there) so get yours sooner rather  than later if you have a JML fan to buy for.

Tom Sachs quotes

“You spend eight hours with your subconscious dreaming. Don’t waste that by taking the world in, go out. So immediately write in your journal, make ceramics, but do something that’s getting something out instead of taking it in. It’s an essential survival tool for all creative people.”
Tom Sachs in coversation with Virgil Abloh and Simon Doonan, WWD

Cosy night in with Perfumer H



Perfumer H Orange Leaf
When it’s cold, dark and damp, there’s nothing more I want to do than cosy up by a fire, burrow under a blanket and surround myself with scented candles. I’m engrossed in Stephen King’s ‘On Writing’ and it’s the first time in ages I’ve been this absorbed in a book, it’s perfect for this time of year. (I tried The Girls in the summer and gave up after 50 pages.)

The most sensorial candles around right now are Perfumer H’s delicious offerings, in hand-blown jewel-coloured glass by Michael Ruh. They look good, they feel great and the smells are so nostalgic and comforting (I love Marmalade). They’re eco too, you can go in and get refills once you’ve used them all up.

The perfumes are equally lovely and beautifully presented in apothecary-style bottles that can be stamped with initials to personalise. Your perfume comes with smaller atomisers and a funnel, and as with the candle, when you’ve finished your bottle, you can get a refill (or just keep it and use as a vase).

I’m wearing Orange Leaf at the moment, a gently citrussy homage to the orange tree. The other new scents for autumn from Perfumer H are Ink (it initially smells of actual ink and then develops into something sweet and sultry), Rain Cloud, Patchouli H and Musk ( a very sophisticated cedar wood spiked musk).

And if you’re a cosy, mimimalist hygge (oops I said the H word) kinda girl, there’s a new candle collab just landed from Perfumer H and Cereal magazine. Called ‘Evening’, it’s a woody, wintry candle in a limited edition of 100, available from the Perfumer H store.
