Växthuset & Le Grand MoyeuOctober 13
& Other Stories just launched two new fragrances to their line of scented candles - Växthuset - an inspiration to their Stockholm Atelier, a serene green scent and Le Grand Moyeu where the charm of their Paris Atelier shines through in a blend of sweet and playful notes. Furthermore they introduce a box of three mini scented candles. The perfect gift. To celebrate the two new scents & Other Stories asked makeup artist and food creative Yo-Kaw Pat to work her magic and interpret the notes of the new scented candles in two recipes. For Växthuset she created dumplings with a surprising liquorice note from juniper berries and for Le Grand Moyeu - figs filled with a rich Earl Grey sauce. Find the recipes here.
Message In A Bottle October 12
Perfume is emotion transformed into molecules says Mark Buxton - the creator behind Mark Buxton Collection and also the one who created the first Comme dés Garçons perfume.
Message In A Bottle is the latest fragrance added to the line;
“The impression of Paradise. On an atoll, on the edge of the world, a timeless scene; enveloped by the extraordinary beauty of nature.. the essence of Paradise. I tossed a message in a bottle into the sea; no paper, no writing - just a fragrant testimony of the Island. A proof of Paradise.. my message for you.”
To me it smells clean. With a hint of exotic flowers. Without being girly. Just how I like it. Besides the clean simple scents I really like the names of his perfumes. Sleeping With Ghosts is both one of my favourites albums by Placebo and also a great scent from Mark Buxton. Fantasy of extreme tenderness. Seeking for the unexpected beauty.. lost in the dark world.. who is it? The crispy quince opens the dream of luminous vanilla and vetiver wrapped in leather. As he describes it.

Uniqlo x LemaireOctober 8
The day I landed in Paris, was the day the Uniqlo And Lemaire collection launched, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on the black knit midi skirt. It will be a lifesaver when it gets cold and paired with a simple grey v-neck knit from Ganni and sneakers it doesn’t get too feminine. The Louise bag from Louis Vuitton certainly completes an outfit. On October 29 the collaboration between Uniqlo and Carine Roitfeld will hit the stores - keep an eye out here.
Desk EssentialsOctober 7
I work at many different locations, but one of the perks of being a freelancer is working from home from time to time. Especially on rainy days. I have a bad habit of eating in front of the tv, so my dining table mostly work as my desk. Things you will always find are magazines, stationery, pens and a moisturising spray. At the moment I’m using Rønsbøl skin tonic to freshen up during the day. Also use it before your face cream to give skin a boost or use as makeup remover. The mini fan is from Muji and is a friend on warm summer days. During fall - it’s just minty and pretty.
