We’ve caught a whiff of an array of fragrances…
Another month, another set of beauty products to add to our wishlist and potentially our shopping cart.
With summer coming to an end this month, we can look forward to new Autumn/Fall 2020 beauty launches ahead. This likely means more muted colours for makeup as well as moisturising skincare formulas to keep our skin moist and hydrated during the drier seasons.
So far, we’ve caught a whiff of an array of fragrances (pun intended), alongside face makeup and skincare products with active ingredients (think vitamin C and retinol alternatives). Catch these launches and update your vanity ahead of the rest in our wishlist roundup of the month below.
Chloe Rose Tangerine EDT
Meet the new signature Chloe EDT, reimagined with fresh boldness and an unexpected fruity twist. The Chloe Rose Tangerine blooms with the radiant notes of tangerine and blackcurrant with verdant undertones that reinforce its exuberant character. It then settles into a base of cedar and white amber that adds an air of femininity and freedom. Modern and elegant, the scent is housed in an iconic fluted glass bottle evoking the sunray pleats quintessential to Chloé, topped with an oval cap, hand-plated silver metal plaque and new orange-pink grosgrain ribbon to reflect its notes. Available in-store from 15th September 2020.

L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Collection
Skincare enthusiasts may be familiar with the benefits of retinol (vitamin A), now meet its 100% natural alternative: the Immortelle Super Extract. Developed by L’Occitane after 6 years of research on the reisilient Immortelle flower that doesn’t wither even after picking, the extract is said to have similar skin cell renewal and anti-aging properties as retinol but is gentler and less sensitising to the skin. It’s the key ingredient in the brand’s relaunched Divine collection, featuring an essence, eye balm, serum, face oil and cream for a complete anti-aging skincare routine to promote more supple, youthful-looking skin. Available from September at L’Occitane stores and website.
