LANVIN Éclat d’Arpège Limited Edition
Not quite a new perfume per say but rather a repackaging of the bottle where the bottle is dressed with violet and fuchsia ribbons: a wink at the couture world of Alber Elbaz.

Jean Paul Gaultier Ma Dame
I’m having a rather juvenile moment with this one. Very inclined to just keep saying Ma DAMN! The three key notes are rose, musk and cedar which isn’t quite my cup of tea but bottle sure DAMN is pretty. (Ok I’ll stop now.)
