Jean Paul Gaultier is what I would call a вЂњgraphicвЂќ fragrance brand, meaning that a large part of its interest lies in its visual aesthetic. Ever since the launch of Jean Paul Gaultier, the brandвЂ™s debut fragrance in 1993 (now known simply as вЂњClassiqueвЂќ), which famously came in a flacon shaped like a bustier-sporting female torso, the bottle has been just as important as the juice it contains.
WeвЂ™ve seen Gaultier fragrances housed in snowglobes, presented in magnetic columns and shaped after M. Jean Paul himself. There is wit, beauty and subversiveness aplenty when it comes to the world of Gaultier – and the bottles always deliver.
La Belle and Le Beau are no exception. Inspired by the Garden of Eden as told by Gaultier, these two fragrances come housed within modern, angular twists on the houseвЂ™s iconic Classique and Le Male flacons, channelling sci-fi robots more than sailors or burlesque dancers.
La Belle wears a garland of golden roses around her neck, and Le Beau wears a golden fig leaf over his, you know, place where a fig leaf goes… (IвЂ™m not going to spell it out for you). Created by perfumers Quentin Bisch and Sonia Constant, these two new fragrances are exotic, decadent and erotic, playing up to Jean Paul GaultierвЂ™s cheeky, graphic aesthetic. LetвЂ™s check them out!
Pear, Bergamot, Vanilla.
Seeing as it comes housed within a tin in a LadurГ©e shade of green, it is no surprise that La Belle is Gourmand with a capital вЂњGвЂќ. It opens with a refreshing blast of pear, instantly evoking the sour, dewy taste of pear drop sweets.
The initial impact is cooling and fresh, with a candied, fruity quality that is fun, but also bold. But this coolness does not last, and La Belle has a tremendous amount of warmth hidden under that garland of golden roses! Vanilla and vetiver come together to create a delicious popcorn-like sweetness that is creamy, nutty and plush, with the resinous, exotic nature of the vanilla contrasting the rooty, earthy quality of the vetiver. I feel like the whole thing is about 1,000 calories, but hey, the best things in life always are, am I right? La Belle is a delectable whirlwind that is sumptuous and sensual – an edible treat in Jean Paul GaultierвЂ™s Garden of Eden.
Bergamot, Coconut, Wood, Tonka Bean.
If La Belle is a hedonistic afternoon tea in a Parisian hotel, then Le Beau is the Pepto Bismal one drinks afterwards to wash down all of that sugar – it is modest in comparison, which makes sense seeing as M. Beau is covering his modesty with a rather large fig leaf! This curious masculine is a zesty aromatic that treads a tropical path, blending sparkling bergamot with the nutty-fresh nuances of coconut woods. Tonka beans, with their marzipan, vanilla facets bring a barbershoppy warmth, evoking GaultierвЂ™s iconic Le Male; however, the whole treatment is fresher, more modern and much transparent. Le Beau has a silvery, metallic sheen to it that makes one think of it as a futuristic fougere – an evolution of Le Male made for the modern man of today.

ESCENTUAL20 only comes around a few times a year. Judging by our social following, itвЂ™s something our customers hang on for, month after month. But do we blame them? Absolutely not. Everyone loves a beauty bargain, especially our Escentual team…
Caudalie’s Grape Water is one of those products that I purchase over and over again because it’s so good. It’s a staple in my beauty routine, and although it’s mainly just grape water in a can, it makes such a difference to my skin. I’ve noticed since introducing it into my daily routine; my sensitive skin feels softer, smoother and less red. I apply it straight after cleansing and wait a few moments for it to dry on my face before going in with my skincare products. It’s also great to use as a refreshing mist throughout the day; I keep a mini bottle on my desk! And it has moisturising and soothing qualities that make it ideal to use on patches of eczema or sunburn. I always make sure I stock up during ESCENTUAL20 so that I’m never without it!
My first encounter with Bonbon was all thanks to an ex-boyfriend. Even though that relationship didn’t exactly stand the test of time, my love affair with Bonbon has.
I hold my hands up; I’m a gourmand fragrance lover through and through. Some may say they are unsophisticated, but I disagree. By no means childish or too girly, this candy-sweet scent is distinctly sexy and alluring. Initially, I was drawn in with pure sweetness from fruity accords, but over time, the sticky dry down of rich caramel is what’s stolen my heart.
I’ve tried experimenting. Buying everything from citrus to bold white florals, but nothing comes close to Bonbon. Its sweet aroma is one that I come back to time and time again. This perfume sits close to the skin, and has good longevity, and isn’t too sweet to wear in the office; I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn it, and days later can still smell it on my jacket.
Rouge G has fast become my everything, and all of my friendsвЂ™ favourite thing to steal. Since GUERLAIN relaunched Rouge G, IвЂ™ve become equally obsessed with collecting the cases, just as I do the lipsticks. What can I say? ItвЂ™s become a pretty luxe habit.
IвЂ™ve got my go-to with Perfect Black, a pop of colour with Nomad Queen and now I need a chic neutral to go with my new Rouge G Matte in 01 Light Nude. So with ESCENTUAL20, IвЂ™ll be adding the Rosy Nude case to my collection. ItвЂ™s not every day a lipstick makes you feel like a queen, and Rouge G is worth every penny and more – now is the time to indulge my collecting addiction while thereвЂ™s 20% off.
Read our review of Rouge G and see the swatches.
I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that summer is nearly over. I’ve said goodbye to all my favourite dresses and the sunshine, but there’s one thing I’m not ready to let go of just yet: my glow! There’s nothing better than sunkissed skin, that’s why I’m making the most of ESCENTUAL20 by stocking up on the Decleor Sunkissed Cream.
On the face of it, this may look like ‘just’ a tinted moisturiser, but it’s much more than that. What makes it so unique is a glow-boosting cocktail of essential oils, hyaluronic acid, and my favourite, beta carotene. The beta carotene is what provides the bronze tint; the star benefit if you ask me. It’s so pigmented that I prefer using this day cream over foundation nowadays. If you’re in a good place with your skin and want radiance and hydration from your base, this could be your new alternative foundation too. My skin has never looked healthier since I made the switch.
Coffee lovers everywhere will rejoice at the fact that now your daily fix doesnвЂ™t have to stop at your barista. Your morning breakfast essential is now taking over makeup bags in the form of universally flattering neutral hues. Think rich browns, creamy beiges and warm-toned shades that will look effortlessly polished and sophisticated on everyone, all year round.
As someone who adores natural makeup and also has a pretty severe caffeine-addiction, this is one trend I couldnвЂ™t say no to trying. After a full week of wearing only coffee-coloured makeup, hereвЂ™s how I recommend you wear it and the products I think are perfect for the job.
A swipe of contour, bronzer or blush is the easiest way to incorporate natural shades into your everyday makeup. It adds a touch of warmth, dimension and health, which can instantly transform a tired and sallow complexion in a matter of seconds. I particularly love the GUERLAIN Sun Trio Bronzing Contouring Palette in Natural because it has three contrasting shades that work together to give a swirl of tanned warmth to the face, each shade can be used separately to contour, bronze and highlight. It’s the equivalent to a shot of espresso for your skin.
Another way to add a touch of ‘cafe au lait’ to your complexion is with a warm, brown-toned blusher. bareMinerals Gen Nude Powder Blush in Beige For Days is the rose-brown for light to medium toned skin or darker skin tones, But First, Coffee is more of a rich mocha brown shade. Both provide the skin with a long-wearing pop of colour that will outlast your coffee fix. As a bonus, each blush also includes a blurring mineral complex that will create a soft-focus effect and keep you looking awake all day.
They say, coffee is the best way to wake you up and start your day, and this goes for your eyes too. Tired peepers can be transformed in just a few easy steps. What you’re looking for, for this trend is one that will incorporate a mixture of matte, satin and metallic textures in neutral shades. I love the bareMinerals Gen Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Latte as it nails this brief perfectly. For this look, I started with the lightest colour, Destiny as a base (a light beige with a hint of shimmer), then worked a little of the warm light brown colour, Solstice into my crease. Finally, to add a bit more depth and dimension, I blended the darker brown, Spirit into the outer corner of the eye and under my lower lash line.
Those who love to add a touch of eyeliner to their makeup look, don’t worry, I have you covered. Using a brown shade smudged into the lashes or on the waterline looks far less harsh and more flattering than using black. The GIVENCHY Magic Khol Eye LinerВ in Coffee works wonderfully with this makeup look, plus I couldn’t possibly leave it out with such a fitting name.
To complete your brown eyeshadow look, finish with a slick of mascara, but steer away from your usual black mascara. We’re after a softer look here and trust me, a brown mascara will really enhance your eyes and still give noticeable definition. YSL Vinyl Couture Mascara in I’m the Illusion provides just the right amount of volume and curl for an understated eye look.
Looking for a lipstick to match your daily vice? The lips are where you can have some fun with the coffee-toned makeup trend. With so many nude shades on offer, in an array of creamy latte and brown-toned hues, this is where this modern makeup craze can slip into everyone’s daily makeup routine. I’ve selected a few different options that can be mixed and matched to create different textures according to what sort of finish you prefer.
Starting with a liner trace your lip line to give dimension and make them appear fuller; I love the Yves Saint Laurent Dessin des Levres The Lip Styler in 20 Brun Sahara. It’s a fairly dark brown-pink shade and has a creamy consistency that’s easy to work with and offers great staying power.
If you prefer a matte nude lip, the Urban Decay Vice Comfort Matte Lipstick in Stark Naked is a great choice when paired with a slightly darker neutral-toned liner. It gives the illusion of a bigger pout but with a natural lipstick look.
I like to pop a little gloss on top to give the illusion of plump lips. The Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 06 Rosewood Shimmer is an excellent choice for this, plus the browny-nude lip gloss also looks great worn alone if you’re in a hurry.

When thinking about perfume, it’s beneficial to consider the idea of colour. Just think, when you smell something, youвЂ™re often able to associate it with a colour. For example, if it smells fresh and oceanic, one might say itвЂ™s blue or grey, while a fruity, berry fragrance may evoke feelings of pink and purple. Brands know this link too well and use different hues in their advertising and on their bottles to give us an idea of what weвЂ™re about to smell – itвЂ™s very handy!
I want to give you some tips on how you can inject your fragrance wardrobe with pops of colour. That can be as simple as picking some colourful, graphic bottles, but it also can be about having some fragrances that are strongly associated with one shade or more. Sometimes the bottle and the juice can offer different tones and tints, twisting our perceptions and making things even more fun! Here are five colour-filled fragrances to get you started.
Narciso Rodriguez and colour go hand-in-hand. When the first Narciso fragrances launched, they pioneered a unique internal lacquering process that made bold colours, whether they were black, pink, or white, pop from behind the glass. The scents themselves have been inextricably linked to the colours of their bottles – taking inspiration from them and creating an olfactory representation of these bold shades.
Narciso Rouge Eau de Toilette uses squeaky clean musks to create a vivid shade of red, via an interplay with rose. The result is a baby powder-esque floral, all clean and finely-milled but filled with blank space, allowing it to project tremendously for a fragrance so soft and clean. Wearing Narciso Rouge Eau de Toilette is like draping oneself with a sheer veil of scent – itвЂ™s enveloping and transparent, but ever so boldly red!
Why stick with one colour when you could have an entire spectrum? I mean, why not have all the colours?! I think a rainbow explosion is a splendid idea. If you want your fragrance to be as colourful as your personality. Imitation Woman by Amouage is a total excess of colours; itвЂ™s a scent that isnвЂ™t afraid to be bold, and dare I say, a little bit fabulous too.
Taking inspiration from the glamour of 1970s NYC, Imitation Woman is the fragrance equivalent of a disco ball hanging high over the dance floor of Studio 54. It reflects the big hair, the shoulder pads, the hairspray and the amazing floral fragrances worn by the many glamazons dancing there, but in a modern way. It opens with a tart, fizzy blast of aldehydes and blackcurrant buds, twirling between fruity and animal, before blooming into a heady bouquet of jasmine and ylang-ylang. You could not wish for more colour.
I see Violet Ida as one of the most covetable of objects. I meanвЂ¦. Just. Look. At. That. Bottle. Have you ever seen something more gorgeous? But what fragrance is hidden behind this violet-named and violet-shaded bottle? ItвЂ™s somewhat of a surprise!
Violet Ida is all about powder and suede. ItвЂ™s a warm, vanillic amber with hints of leather and lots of beautifully fluffy, resinous things. There is a hint of the sweet and earthy tone of violet; this dash of colour brings to mind an opalescent appearance where a white base shade fires off hints of purple and pink as the light catches it. Colour, yes, but subtle.
Nothing says red quite like a rose, and no rose fragrance says red quite so beautifully as La Fille de Berlin; this is an example of a fragrance that presents a vivid colour, and whilst the blood-red colour of the juice will lead one to think of rouge things, itвЂ™s the scent itself that really drives the idea of colour.
Inspired by Marlene Dietrich, La Fille de Berlin is an austere and androgynous rose unlike any other. As one would expect, given its muse, the presentation of a rose here is angular, aloof and beguiling. It has a jammy, tart, fruity quality in the top notes but it quickly settles to an ice-cold rose with thorns, supported by a spiderвЂ™s web of patchouli and the mineral softness of earth. La Fille de Berlin is the drop of blood that drips from oneвЂ™s thumb after a roseвЂ™s thorn pricks it.
Are you in the mood for some nostalgia? Do you like your perfume housed within a strange, bakelite-style spaceship? Would you say that blue eyeshadow was very much your vibe? Well I have just the thing for you, and youвЂ™re in luck, because those big syrupy florals of the 1980s are coming back into fashion. Enter LouLou.
LouLou is a whirlwind of colour that shows a contrast between the shade of its bottle and the colour of the scent inside. While the outside is all baby blue, the inside is a royal purple that glows like a black light. The fragrance is a rich, intense blast of purple fruits with brazen white floral notes and makeup powder. It may have felt like a costume ten years ago, but in the age of contoured makeup, LouLou is back to being cool again!
The post 5 Ways To Inject Colour Into Your Perfume Wardrobe appeared first on Escentual's Beauty Buzz.
In a recent Twitter poll, I asked Escentual followers what they look for in a face mask. 8% said they want natural ingredients, 19% want something quick, while 35% want instant results. But what about the remaining 38%? Well, they want it all! But this is where I can swoop in and deliver some good news; there’s no need to compromise; not if Nuxe, or I have anything to do with it. The Insta-Masque collection is setting new standards for weekly skin pick-me-ups, and this is why…В
What’s so special about the Nuxe Insta-Masque range is their simplicity. I’m not talking about the instagrammable packaging; it’s the formula, and how to use it. The ingredient list only contains what’s necessary, of which most are natural origin. Each mask is centred around two main active ingredients to deliver two beauty benefits to the skin, plus each mask is designed to be used for 2-minutes only.В
Insta-Masques are the face masks of the future; they offer visible results and a pampering experience, in no time at all – because who gets me-time, anymore?
Why Should I Choose An Insta Masque?
вњ”пёЏBetween 68.6% and 98.6% natural origin ingredients.
вњ”пёЏ 2 minutes to better skin.
вњ”пёЏ 2 hero active ingredients.
вњ”пёЏ Suitable for all skin types.
How do I choose the right Insta-Masque for me?
Picking the right Nuxe face mask for your skin is easy; all the masks contain concentrated active ingredients that help with a specific issue. All you need to do is think about the result you want and pick the best match. For example, if your skin is looking shiny, or your pores are dilated, the purifying mask will be your best friend. All the face masks are suitable for men, women, and all skin types too.
вЂў Choose Purifying & SmoothingВ to mattify and tighten pores.
вЂў Choose Detoxifying & GlowВ to target impurities and dullness.
вЂў Choose Exfoliating & UnifyingВ to improve radiance and skin texture.
Can I multi-mask with the Insta-Masques?
Yes, and it’s recommended. Different areas of the face require different types of care. Take me as an example; I have an oily t-zone, but my cheeks are looking a little lacklustre right now. The solution for me would be using the purifying mask in the centre, then popping the exfoliating mask on the cheeks. Mix and match all 3 to find a format thatвЂ™s best for your skin concerns.
Still canвЂ™t choose? Tweet me for a personal recommendation!
Best for: Mattifying and tightening pores.В
Active ingredients: Rose floral water and white clay (kaolin).
Texture:В Light cream.
Naturality:В 68.6% natural origin ingredients.
If oiliness and enlarged pores are your biggest skin concern, this is the Nuxe face mask for you. Unlike many other clay masks, the Purifying and Smoothing Mask purifies the complexion without any tingling or over-drying. A genius pairing of white clay (kaolin) and rose floral water are to thank for this. The skin gets all the unclogging and mattifying benefits of clay, plus the softening effect of rose water.В
This mask feels and smells fantastic too. When you apply it to dry skin, it goes on like a light, white cream. It doesn’t dry hard like many other clay masks because it doesn’t get the time. Like all the masks in this range, you only need to keep it on for 2-minutes, then rinse it off with water. The result is a complexion that feels cleansed and smooth.
Best for: Dullness and uneven skin tone/texture.
Active ingredients: Rose floral water and macadamia oil.
Texture: Gel to oil (with micro-grains).
Naturality:В 98.3% natural origin ingredients.
It doesn’t matter what your skin type is; you should own the Exfoliating and Unifying Mask. The mask focuses on improving radiance and irregular texture; concerns that affect a lot of people due to pollution, bad diet and a busy lifestyle. Another reason is that as we age, our skin’s renewal process slows down. When this happens, there becomes a build-up of dead skin cells, and our complexion can start to look tired. An exfoliating mask is a perfect (and pampering) remedy for this.
100% natural micro-grains of silica are what give this mask a scrub-like effect without an abrasive feeling. The gentle gel-to-oil formula, soothing macadamia oil and rose floral water all act as a safety blanket, protecting sensitive skin. So skin receives all the exfoliating with none of the irritation.В
What’s different about this mask, aside from its Turkish delight-like aroma, is how you remove it. Just like the others, you rinse it off after two minutes, but with this one instead of just rinsing it away, work it into your skin; itвЂ™ll leave you glowing!
Best for:В Impurities and dullness.
Active ingredients: Rose floral water and botanical charcoal.
Texture: Gel to lotion.
Naturality:В 96.2% natural origin ingredients.
Do you need to hit reset on your skin? If so, you need the Detoxifying and Glow Mask. It could be blemishes, blackheads or pollution causing your skin to feel congested, but this mask has the answer, without any of the irritation. Active charcoal has been paired with rose floral water to reduce sensitivity, and the usual peel off mechanic has been swapped to a gel. Both of these updates make for a charcoal face mask that reboots the skin in the kindest way possible.В
Of all the masks in this line-up, this was by far my favourite. Firstly, because I love the wow factor of an intense black mask, and secondly because it left my skin feeling so clean, despite only taking 2 minutes. The gel texture instantly transforms into a light lotion when you get it wet, rinsing the dirt away with it.
