All I want for Christmas is… having a choice

Le Labo newsletter came in the mail the other day & as I tend to not read the pre-Christmas flood of e-commerce this time I read it. You see, for me Le Labo is one of those brands that I quite like and I could sport a couple fragrances from their range on a daily basis (I’m talking about you – Iris 39) but I’m just not willing to pay a hyped price the brand is asking for their perfume, even if a great one. Even the fact that Le Labo now has a scent corner in Warsaw at Galilu boutique doesn’t help.

However if your mindset is different than mine here’s something that might interest you. A new discovery set from Le Labo. What is it? A set of 4 samples, but each of them is 5 ml instead of usual 1.5 ml. But here’s the catch – you don’t have a choice! The brand chose their four bestsellers: Bergamote 22, Rose 31, Santal 33 and Thé Noir 29. The idea of having a bit more before commiting to a bottle is great but without a choice a purpose seems lost. At least my money is safe.

All I want for Christmas is… a candle… and a mug

Let’s say that snow fairies waved their magic wands and you have extra 75 € to spend on Christmas presents. I bet there are tens of better things you could buy for that money but if you felt extra generous and wanted to treat yourself to something nice and fragrant you might want to have a look at candle in a mug range from Memo Paris. What is this? Well… it’s a candle… in a mug. Duh!

Burn a candle to spread a charming scent at home and once it’s gone you still get to enjoy a fine chinese porcelain mug. According to their website, each candle explores a single note taken out of their fragrances. You get to choose from cedar, caramel, incense, tuberose, grapefruit, amber, mint, coriander and jasmine. Each candle variant is matched with different motive on the mug.
