editor s welcome This month, I’m typing my Editor’s letter while overlooking the perfect scene. My son and I are staying with my American friends, Judy and Joe, who live on the water (Chesapeake Bay) in Lusby, Maryland. It’s so serene right now and it makes me appreciate why many authors prefer to be somewhere quiet to start their next novel! Not that my eds letter is anywhere near starting a novel, but


occasionally peace and quiet is all you need to get going. Although I’m on holiday (and working), I still like to check out the local Perfumery Departments in the local stores, i.e. Macy’s, Lord & Taylor and Nordstrom, to see what’s on offer. For example, at Nordstrom’s they had a 17-piece premium gift set worth $80 that included miniature fragrances, skincare and makeup - a great GWP with a fragrance purchase. In Macy’s I was drawn to a beautiful gold Michael Kors Tote Bag on display and was told I would receive this complimentary Tote by purchasing either a scent or make-up from the Michael Kors new fragrance and beauty collection. I tested the new MK fragrance collection: Sporty Citrus, Sexy Amber and Glam Jasmine and Sexy Amber came out tops for me.


In Lord & Taylor, a new Laura Mercier fragrance caught my eye and my wrist - Vanille Gourmande EdT - a contemporary and sophisticated scent that contains a beautiful mix of vanilla orchid, vanilla liqueur, musk, heliotrope, daylily, bourjon vanilla, sandalwood and amber accords. Meanwhile, in this month’s issue, we have a fab feature on how the Nail market continues to grow by introducing new concepts in ways of keeping nails looking their best at all times. Plus, taking a look at products that beauty junkies continue to be addicted to! Of course, we have our popular Net Scent column from Persolaise, News stories, Spa News and Beauty Related.

Spa&salon The skin guru passes on her trade secrets Skin therapist extraordinaire, Donna Glazer has set up to pass on her knowledge to therapists and the consumer Often referred to as ‘the skin whisperer’, at the age of 20, she created the clinical brand, Face It in London, which over two decades later, still stands strong today.

Face It - Providing the highest quality skin care treatments with qualified and experienced therapists

Receiving numerous accolades, The Clinic has, for nine consecutive years, been the Environ Salon of the Year. The Clinic has become the UK distributor for the internationally renowned brand, Dermaviduals. Treatments and technology include a muscle stimulating and lymph drainage massage, as well as radio frequency, sonophresis, iontophresis, IPL Skin Rejuvination, Dermal Rollering and LED light therapy. Donna Glazer In her training at The Skin School, she incorporates information on some of the most common skin concerns (corneotherapy, acne, rosacea, and pigmentation), how to treat them with suitable ingredients, and the machines available on the market. Alongside this, she teaches therapists how to conduct a thorough skin analysis and consultation, delving into people’s history and origins. Day classes in London cost £150. Prior to attending, candidates must advise Donna on their current knowledge of the skin, along with the brands they use, and what they want to achieve and learn.

Review the stylist The power of individual reviews on websites is the concept behind a new beauty website. Beauty Hum ( was recently started by Lara Solomon and addresses the need to be able to review the stylist i.e. the person who gave the experience rather than the salon Lara says: “A recent survey found that three quarters of clients surveyed consider themselves to be loyal to their stylist rather than their salon and yet, until now, there was no way to review or recommend a stylist online. In the same survey 74% of women surveyed prioritise recommendation and ‘on trend’ hairdressing when making their salon choice - people want to know where is good to go and who is good to see depending on their individual needs. An article in June’s Economist found that more than ten reviews for a product created a dramatically higher conversion rate, hence why Beauty Hum will help not just the clients, but also stylists and therapists.” Hair and beauty professionals can add themselves to the site and also their clients can suggest that they be added and Lara will then contact them.

a look at what’s new in the marketplace Fragrance mirrors fashion The designer, Issey Miyake is known globally for his signature pleats and this is a feature that he has focused on in his new fragrance entitled Pleats Please. Aurélien Guichard has composed a bright and cheerful bouquet. Its primary inspiration was light, an intrinsic element in the world of Issey Miyake, in the form of shimmering highlights. Then came the idea of verticality, reflecting the structure of the pleat. The sparkling top note opens with the intriguing aroma of nashi, a hybrid fruit that oscillates between pear and apple, with the pear note predominating. The upbeat middle note is warm and vibrant with peony and sweet pea. The base note settles into the rich woody notes of cedar while patchouli, taking on a vertical character, permeates the composition. Sweet, sensuous vanilla infuses the trail with radiant warmth. To interpret the image of the pleat, the geometrical spirit of a multifaceted polyhedron was chosen for the bottle. The product range comprises a trio of Eau de Toilette in three formats: 30ml, 50ml and 100ml with a starting price of £33.00 and a moisturising body lotion for £25.00. The fragrance is supported by an advert using photography by Nick Knight.


Facial definition With 30 years of expertise in medical anti-aging, Laboratories Filorga has launched its latest cosmetic treatment - Skin Structure Firmness Definition Serum - a restructuring skincare product that addresses firmness threedimensionally, by acting simultaneously on volume, density and slackening. Skin Structure creates a collagen injection-like effect that fills out cutaneous depressions and enhances volume. The plant-based formula creates a stretch-effect mesh over the skins surface, smoothing and redefining features by pulling outwards like a face-lift. Using Filorga’s exclusive skin restructuring formula HA+NCTF, combined with Collaxyl, a collagen peptide, skin is firmed and revitalised from the deep-lying layers to the surface, while boosting collagen production. Available from September 2013, Skin Structure Firmness Definition Serum 30ml, (£54) will be exclusive to Marks & Spencer Beauty stores and online at

The spirit of India Inspired by the Royal House of Marwar-Jodphur in Rajasthan, Penhaligon’s latest fragrance, Vaara, was designed to commemorate the birth of the granddaughter of His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh II. Capturing this aromatic and vibrant world of the Maharaja, was Master Perfumer, Bertand Duchaufour, who

travelled to Jodhpur to explore the family palaces, exotic gardens and bustling city markets, which provided an abundance of inspiration for the fragrance creator. Vaara opens with coriander, carrot seed, saffron and quince, at the heart, roses blend with Indian magnolia with an added touch of freesia and iris before giving way to a luscious combination of honey and white musk over a base of tonka, cedarwood and sandalwood. Vaara EdP 50ml - £85, 100ml £120, is now available from Penhaligon’s boutiques and UK stockists. Vaara will also be exclusively available in India at the Umaid Bhawan Palace Collection Shop.
