And this one? The bottles come packaged in cardboard coffee cups inspired by Magnolia Bakery and are then sealed in a brown paper bag. Too damn cute!
I also love Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb packaging for the festive season – the limited edition rose gold bottle is dressed in its own frou-fro tulle skirt, a la the gowns in the SS10 show. The juice smells just as sweet…

Isn’t this cute! I know not everyone likes Melissa’s plastic shoes (*squelch*) but I like the concept of affordable, fun and innovative and I love that they collaborate with equally innovative designers. This latest design is a collab between Melissa and industrial designer Gaetano Pesce, a customisable boot made of circular discs that can easily be transformed into a shoe of your own design simply by cutting away a disc or two.
The shoes are currently on sale exclusively at Selfridges Oxford Street Shoe Gallery and retails at £75 a pair.
Sometimes I’m drawn to a fragrance for its packaging rather than the scent inside. In fact, scratch that, usually I’m drawn to a fragrance for its bottle than its scent. A huge factice of Chanel No 5 sits above my desk even though I never ever wear the fragrance. Ditto Moschino Couture with its gold heart stopper and velvet necktie.
Balenciaga sent me its new purse spray which is a thing of sheer beauty. Its a weighty column of futuristic-looking ‘zamak‘, which sounds completely made up (is Balenciaga inventing its own materials now?) but is, apparently, a precious material. And it was delivered with a hand written note – alas, not from Nicolas but still… And the scent? Violety, sherbety, sweet but a little bit sharp.
