The Future is ‘Phygital’

Eric Hazan: We are entering the world of “phygital”—physical and digital at the same time, where there is not a physical world or digital world in retail, but rather a completely connected one.

World Book and Copyright Day!

“I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil

I have no words when it comes to Somerset. My all time favourite writer whose stories are flows of words about the life and adventures of ordinary people in ordinary circumstances.
Somerset’s artful gift of gab made them extraordinary people living in extraordinary circumstances.

Love is not a hot-house flower

“Love is not a hot-house flower, but a wild plant, born of a wet night, born of an hour of sunshine; sprung from wild seed, blown along the road by a wild wind. A wild plant that, when it blooms by chance within the hedge of our gardens, we call a flower; and when it blooms outside we call a weed; but, flower or weed, whose scent and colour are always, wild!”
John Galsworthy, The Forsyte Saga

Discover a collection of fragrances that are sure to make an impression. Each perfume embodies its own distinctive personality…
While each scent is unique, they are all a perfect reminder of a moment.

Express your own personality with scent. May we suggest our amaranthine Lemon Noir? Accented with black cherries and saffron, this scent draws you in with a rush of seductive roses and jasmine. Then its heart is revealed, a trail of bergamot, a bouquet of oranges, lemons, vanilla and sandalwood.

Perfumes smell great, but they also make the world more interesting, more beautiful. And that’s what you want to radiate when you wear the right perfume. Of course it should smell good, but it should also speak to your own unique personality. That’s what our expert fragrance advisors are here for. They’re always happy to help you find the perfect scent, one that will make a first impression as memorable as the last. Your friends will wonder what smells so good when they catch a whiff of your new perfume, and your loved ones will always know when you’ve returned home by following their noses to find you there.

They’ll introduce you to classic fragrances and timeless scents, new reaches in perfumery by talented niche perfumers working outside the mainstream.

The serenity of June roses

This painting steals my heart with its silence, serenity, reverie, and its roses.

It pins down to memory like Pearlovski number 34, the midsummer perfume. It smells like baby rose buds and freshly cut grass..

Perfume is the memory of a feeling
. In this case the memory of the happy expectancy of a long summer, guarded by flowers.
There is freedom in the rose buds in the garden. Freedom to shine and smell like heaven on earth.

Grown-ups love figures

Le Petit Prince was published on April 6, 1943 in the United States, in English and a few days later in French, at Editions Reynal & Hitchcock.

“Grown-ups love figures… When you tell them you’ve made a new friend they never ask you any questions about essential matters. They never say to you “What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies? ” Instead they demand “How old is he? How much does he weigh? How much money does his father make? ” Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
