Packed with that Parisian charm we all covet, Paul & Joe Beaute is the cult brand for beauty junkies. And now you can discover two of Paul & Joe Beaute’s most iconic products with our exclusive competition.
The prize includes the Facial Treatment Oil, a deeply comforting oil that’ll awaken and renew the skin; light enough to be used everyday, it quickly absorbs into the skin, and Paul & Joe Blanc EDT, a fresh, floral scent that blissfully harmonises the daintiness of hawthorn, the elegance of lily and the gentleness of a cloud of milk.
To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question by November 8th 2012. Open to UK residents only.
Which animal did Paul & Joe Beaute immortalise in a lipstick?

Bedecked in bunting finery, heritage fragrance brand Floris set the tone for a right royal British knees-up at the launch of their new fragrance, Victorious in their flagship store, above. Created to celebrate the spirit of Great Britain, Victorious is quite a special fragrance as it brings together the five fragrance families in perfect fragrance harmony.
A fresh, unexpected fragrance, it includes top notes of bergamot, grapefruit, lemon, mandarin, marine, along with base notes of amber, musk, sandalwood, vanilla and vetiver. Designed to be a unisex fragrance, I thought I’d test this out by spritzing my boyfriend with it when I got home – on me, the fragrance was quite sensuous, warm and ever so slightly floral whereas on him, it was a lot more fresh with a hint of musk. I haven’t smelt anything quite like this scent ever and it’s definitely the one I’ll be wearing come the Queen’s Jubilee!
Victorious Eau de Parfum, released as part of the Floris Private Collection, is available from Floris priced at £99 for 100ml; it will be rolled out nationwide from June 6th.

Inspired by her love roses, Orla Kiely‘s latest fragrance Rosie is a woody, floral scent with spicy notes of coriander, nutmeg and mandarin with black pepper. This is the second fragrance from the retro-print goddess, which cites the likes of Kate Middleton as a fan (Kate wore a grey Orla Kiely dress at the Dulwich Gallery opening last week) and is known for her quirky retro prints and use of colours.
Orla Kiely Rosie Limited Edition EDT, priced at £42, is available from Debenhams.
Our love affair with everything rose scented seems to be continuing – which is your favourite floral scent?

The new fragrance from Salvator Ferragamo is set to launch in April, and whilst it is said to celebrate chic, Italian girls (that rules out Snooki, JWoww and co then!) what I love most about Signorina is the dessert element. You heard me, dessert. Along with spicy pink pepper, jasmine, rose, peony and soft musk, the most intriguing of notes is that of Panacotta. Whilst it seems odd at first, the more you think about it, the more it makes sense. Who doesn’t love the smell of a creamy dessert being whipped up in the kitchen, and what could be more Italian than Panacotta?
Signorina is a sophisticated, cheeky and fresh scent that’ll give your spring a touch of the dolce vita.
