Styling HAMPEL AU C T I O N


Dearest readers, In this issue, we celebrate the beautiful world of fragrance, scents and essences. We live in a world full of natural abundance, especially with fragrance. To breath in the rich scents around us is a blessings. In this issue we travel to the fragrant flower workshop of artist Yukinobu Fujino in Japan. His work is wonderful and his choice of flowers are amazing. We honour the designers and creators of fragrances, the designs of the beautiful bottles and the exquisite packaging. We share the ‘behind the scenes’ of the making of perfume movies that take your imagination to another world completely. Belgium perfume designer Dimitri Weber (featured in our June issue) arrived in Australia last month and together with Christiane de Bievre and Styling magazine we share with you a beautiful event that we staged at the Styling magazine studio here in the Southern Highlands. With many guests arriving from afar enjoying the fragrant foods whilst learning from Dimitri how to make their own blend of perfume. For all those travelling to France and looking for somewhere special to stay, we are sharing the gorgeous apartment ‘La petit bijou” of Australian author Vicki Archer. She writes about the joy she gets from her newly renovated home in St Remy, France. And French woman now calling Australia home, Annie Chabert McKay’s beautiful home and garden here in the Highlands. Sharon Santoni shares with us her fragrant and very French home made jellies and jams. We share more of artist, Margaret Keelan’s latest exhibition of her little patina girls. We go on the hunt for treasures at Hampel Auction house in Germany to source interior fittings and decorations to create an “imaginary” perfume boutique. I have so loved working on this issue together. There are so many other delicious finds inside. We do hope you will enjoy reading the September issue of Styling. May we all live each day with an open heart that sees, feels and connects with the rich beauty around us. Xx Coty

W O RT H - d a n s l a n u i t Beautiful bottles and beautiful presentation is something that I have been attracted to since I was a little girl. I collect many bottles and I adore perfume bottles especially. This vintage bottle of WORTH belongs to my creative friend Margaret, who also ‘like me’ loves bottles. She made a special trip to my studio just to show me her collection of perfume bottles that she treasure so. Thanks Margaret!


Just like a bottle of perfume that is made up of many different fragrant notes, we too here at Styling magazine blend and mix our notes and stories together to make a special package for you! A perfume is made of three elements, the top-notes, middle - notes and the base-notes. Styling magazine is built the same way. The top note is the very first impression you get, often the first scent that you will notice soon after the perfume is applied. Just like the cover of the magazine, it is the first impression you get when you open up our magazine. The middle notes, otherwise known as the ‘heart’ notes is where we share our stories that are usually more delicate, creative and where we hope to inspire. The base notes of a fragrance brings depth and a richness that stays on the skin long after it is applied. This is what we hope for, that our magazine will linger in your heart and mind long after you have closed the last page. - A perfect blend - Coty Farquhar

C O L L A R S A N D C U F F S The two most decorated and beautiful parts of an outfit is the collar and the cuff which is also the area of the body where most perfume is sprayed. Inspiration for the collar and cuff design often comes from the details of a flower and its petal. Look at the shape of the edges of a parrot tulip, the ruffles of ranunculus and the fine transparent lines in an orchid. Styling magazine has chosen a few beautiful flowers from Fleurs TrĂŠmolo to show the amazing similarity in both.

Teaming fragrance, flowers and food together is always going to be a unique sensation. Flowers are beautiful to look at and dreamily fragrant plump fruits and scented foods have a delicious olfactory smell. Taste buds are awakened, the senses are calmed and your imagination is guided by your inner feelings.

“It’s all a sensory experience”, I became aware of

the change and the shift of complete calmness in my studio, it was transformed into the most invigorating energy which is still felt weeks later. - Coty Farquhar

It was the bottle labelled No.5 that Coco Chanel chose as her favourite scent from a box of 24 bottles created for her in 1921 by perfumer Ernest Beaux. It has a strong use of aldehydes which

makes for a unique fragrance and has over 250

ingredients. Although it was not as popular in the 1920’s as it is now, it has become one of the most well known and loved perfumes ever.


Fragrance definitely enhances your being and can change your mood instantly. Before blending all the perfume notes you may have your favorite scents in mind, but it is how you choose each note and how they blend together that creates a unique scent. The Nose or perfume creator has developed a fine sense of smell and works with approximately 3’500 to 4’000 essences.

When blending a perfume, it is impor tant to have an understanding of a variety of fragrance ingredients and their smells. “Nature is still the largest laboratory in the world� said Dr Jean Valnet, founder and author The Practice of the Aromatherapy which is considered by many as the bible on the subject.


The visually delicious and mouthwatering finger food was ser ved with the sweetness of rose scented champagne. Rose petals, apple blossoms and magnolia flowers also added to the visual beauty and the natural fragrance in the air. N I N A

Fragrance facts: Iris is the most expensive raw material. Iris bulbs take three years to harvest and three more years to store them in bags and then one year to handle them. 700’000 petals are needed to get 1,2 kg of essence of rose and jasmine.

At

our

perfume

workshop, guests had at their disposal a selection of fifty essences to choose from to create their own designs. Dimitri also brought a selection of raw materials from several countries and high quality synthetic notes, indispensable to create a unique genuine perfume suc h as frankincense, myrrh, styrax, iris, oud wo o d ( s p e c i a l wo o d from the Middle East).


Some scents will last almost a week of exposure, while others, for some unknown reason, will last only a few hours. Orange blossom, apple blossom, jasmine and rose to name a few are the middle notes, known as the “heart notes� of the fragrance and they emerge from the person when the top notes dissipate. These heart notes are usually more mellow and rounded.

a to u c h Of French essence


Oh my, what is she up to now? Unstoppable creative Australian woman living a perfectly beautiful life in France with her family in an adorable home that she and her husband have brought back to life. They grow olives, serious olives, and she has written and styled two beautiful books. Recently, she has just finished one of her projects, Le Petit Bijou and I’m sure she is dreaming about bringing life to yet another old French building. Who is She? Vicki of course! Vicki Archer from the hugely successful blog, French Essence. Vicki writes about her Le Petit Bijou in the Heart of Saint RÊmy de Provence.


Le Petit Bijou, in the heart of Saint Rémy de Provence, is just that ... a little jewel.

When restoring this small house minutes away from the centre of the village I wanted to create the feeling that this was ‘home away from home’. Our guests must feel as if they live in Provence and that they are experiencing their own F re n c h l i fe fi r s t h a n d . T h e furnishings and the decorative elements were not only chosen for their comfort but also selected to give Le Petit Bijou a feeling of intimacy and to provide an ambience… Le Petit Bijou is a place to celebrate the senses… that is what living in France is all about.


The antiques, the soft furnishings, the engravings and all the other small objets that furnish Le Petit Bijou are either from my own collections or from the local flea markets of Avignon and L’Isle sur la Sorgue… I spent months looking for the bibliotheque in the living room… it had to be not only the correct size but also have a patina in keeping with the house. The commodes and the mirrors in the bedrooms were just as painstaking to find… and now I can’t imagine them anywhere else.


When adding the finishing touches I imagined all those small details that I love in the bedroom, in the bathroom and in the home… those elements that make me want to settle in and never leave… Vintage linens on the beds, a worn collection of postcards tucked into a mirror here and there, worn journals that act as side tables, a posy of flowers to say welcome… small parts that make up a very inviting whole.


Le Petit Bijou was a labour of love from beginning to end‌ for me it was a pleasure beyond words to create a home that fellow Francophiles might visit and an environment where they could experience a taste of life in Provence. Vicki Archer

The Ch창telaine of Collingwood A love story


I need to return at least once a year to France just to smell the forest, the air and see the old stone buildings that hold the history of my home village in Auvergne, says Annie Chabert McKay. Annie arrived in Australia twenty years ago with her Australian husband David McKay, journalist and champion racing car driver. I couldn’t speak English very well at the time but everyone was so kind to me. It was really important for my elderly husband to come back to Australia and although I was very independent and had always lived in Europe, I made a conscious decision that this was the right thing to do, it also showed David how much I loved him. After a trip around Australia, she arrived at ‘Collingwood’ in the Southern Highlands. A beautiful property which has been in David’s family since 1950. It has the most wonderful garden around the house, filled with flowers most of the year and beautiful trees. I love the space, says Annie and I enjoy the gardening and I have worked closely with our gardener over the years planting trees.


David and I would walk hand in hand through the park, (as we called it) everyday. And every night we would dress for dinner and play music and talk. I always change my dress at the end of a day, I always have, “I feel it is good for your brain to change clothes from day to night” says Annie, I love to wear long dresses, especially Moroccan dresses and David was always such a gentleman and he too would change, maybe not a tie at home but he always looked very handsome and would thank me after every meal that I cooked for him. He was my Prince, it was like a fairy tale. He called me the Châtelaine of Collingwood.


David and I met in Cote D’Azur not far from Monaco where he was invited to the Grand Prix in Monaco. I was with my sister and my daughter in a little restaurant having dinner when David walked in. I noticed him, he was very handsome and well dressed. The restaurant owners knew him well and took him to his special table. He was peering over the top of his newspaper looking at me and smiling. I invited him to join our table and it was the first time in my life that I had ever done something like that. I couldn’t speak English and he couldn’t speak French, but we could both speak Italian, so we conversed in Italian through dinner.


David was working in Italy testing Italian and German cars and he definitely had a soft spot for Italy as it is where his car was made in 1964. The Ferrari 250 LM, designed and made especially for David. It has a very long body and was known as the “The Red Old Lady”, she now lives in the US and is part of a collection of rare cars owned by Ralph Lauren. Recently the Ferrari was part of an exhibition in Paris called the L’Art De L’automobile, masterpieces from the Ralph Lauren Collection. We lived together for eight years in Geneva where I was a school teacher and David wrote his third book, (his second autobiography). We married in New Zealand before coming ‘home’ as I now call Australia. The cottage needed a lot of work when we arrived and it was renovate the house, had a good heating Once my furniture

so cold. We started to built a new kitchen and system put throughout. and possessions arrived

from France I felt very much more settled. I started to teach French at a few little local schools in the Highlands and I was most excited when the French Ambassador to Australia came to visit our little school one year just to see our French class. It was a special day!


David also introduced me to golf and I just love it, I’m not that good, but I do love the walking, says Annie. We were always travelling around the world following the Grand Prix and we enjoyed entertaining small groups at our house. I can fit eight around our round table and I love cooking especially for my friends. I love the open space at Collingwood and the seasons, I need to live with four seasons and to have flowers everywhere. My favourite flowers are the lily of the valley, daffodils and violets. I was born in May in France, springtime and the Lily of the Valley is my flower! At Collingwood we had so many flowers covering the garden, violets, freesias and blue crocus flowers everywhere. I now consider Australia as my home. I have many friends that I spend time with and it is really important for me to share my life with them. I love the warmth of people because I think I just love people, Annie says with a smile.


Styling magazine’s design task ... To create and decorate an “imaginary” (Just for fun) perfume boutique with heavenly fittings, beautiful carpentry & cabinetmaking, rich colours and to be decorated with unique items. For inspiration we travelled to hampel living On-line auction house in germany . You will be amazed at what can be found!

Late summer in Normandy is a season rich in fragrance: The perfume of ripe fruit tumbling from the pear trees; the dry grassy smell of bales of straw freshly pressed in fields; that very particular twinge of autumn on its way.


Fruit Sharon Santoni My French Country Home


There is still time to make preserves and jams to comfort our winter months ahead. Fruit is heavy and abundant:   quince, plum, late raspberry, and most abundantly of all .... apples. Apple jelly simmering in the kitchen fills the house with sweet perfume. The fruit is plentiful and the jelly strained in various hues as apples are combined with rosemary, vanilla or elderberry ... the natural pectin in the fruit makes for easy jelly ..  simply cut the fruit into rough pieces and pick the berries from their stalks .... cover with water in a deep preserving pan ... simmer till thoroughly cooked, leave to cool, then strain .... the vibrant hued liquid that strains away requires its own weight in sugar ... back into the pan, bring gently to the boil, then simmer until the jelly is ready to set ....

Margaret Keelan Margaret Keelan figurative ceramic sculptures look like they have been well loved for years and years. The 19th century style doll faces connecting with little animals depict an innocence of play time when nothing else mattered - The beauty within shines through these perfect patina pieces.


MARGARET KEELAN


For the past few years my sculptures have been glazed, stained, fired, then glazed, stained and fired again to give the surfaces the look of disintegrating paint over weathered wood. This softening and reduction of form so that its essential nature is revealed is a metaphor I am using for life being lived, my exploration of the process of growing up and growing older. These latest small sculptures recall the “Santos” figures of Mexico and Central America and incorporate a reproduced 19th century doll head. Although my figures echo contemporary concerns, the borrowing of earlier styles gives them more of an ageless quality. Linda Gastrom, Professor of Art, states, “The subject conveys a sweet sentimentality twisted into melancholy that touches my emotional core and helps me remember the complexities of childhood and life”.- Margaret Keelan MARGARET KEELAN


La lĂŠgende de Shalimar The breathtakingly beautiful movie just released of the legend of SHALIMAR directed by Bruno Aveillan and featuring Natalia Vodianova. The story of this boundless love fired the imagination of Jacques Guerlain who, in 1925, created Shalimar the world's first oriental fragrance.


Once upon a time in India, a love story between a Mughal emperor and his beloved wife. In the 17th century troubadours immortalized on their sitars loves of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal. A true story became legend, exalted and magnified. This all- powerful emperor, cultivated in the secret of his heart, an indescribable passion for his divine wife. To protect their love, Mumtaz lived in a palace away from the bustle and chaos of the world, surrounded by beautiful gardens, called Shalimar.

Styling is a reflection of our personality – our tastes, our power of observation, our own cultural upbringing and our talent for originality. Creativity is a fundamental human compulsion to invent or to compose. Take time each week to create your own ideas, however humble you may think they are. Look closely at the details in everything and notice the colours, the shapes and the deep inner feelings you have when you are attracted to something. Creative expression comes from the many objects we have around us in our lives, a bowl of flowers, a favourite teapot on a lovely table, a painting or a garden on a misty day. Creativity is inspired by the wonders of our universe. When you are in the right state of heart and soul, just like magic you can tap into the endless flow of universal creative energy and resources and inspiration comes straight to you. - Coty Farquhar
