    Mon, 18 August 2014 2:15PM

  • How To: Personalise Your Perfume Intensity

    Thu, 19 June 2014 8:30AM

    You might have worked out your perfume personality – perhaps you adore full-bloom florals, or smouldering, spicy orientals or mouth-wateringly delicious gourmands.

  • Sexy Women’s Fragrances: A Dude’s Perspective

    Fri, 13 June 2014 2:32PM

  • An Ode To Fragrance Past

    Mon, 5 May 2014 8:00AM

    This may sound odd on first impression Primpers, but my mama sits in a bottle on my dressing table. A sleek cobalt blue and metallic silver beauty that encapsulates her very essence: a spontaneous, energetic spirit (jasmine and citrus), a beguiling contrast of feminine beauty (rose and gardenia) and masculine strength (vetiver and oakmoss), and… more

    Wed, 16 April 2014 12:00PM

    Gosh, it seems like forever since I’ve done a Five Things post doesn’t it? For the uninitiated, these blog posts were a weekly staple of mine, where, via video, I presented you with five products that had rolled into PRIMPED HQ and taken my eye.

  • Hot! Keira Knightley as Coco Mademoiselle (Part 3)

    Mon, 31 March 2014 5:05PM

    Lovely. That’s how Keira sums up the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance. We’d say: Sexy. Captivating. Free Spirited. Seriously seductive (that’s a heck of a smokey eye!). Keira as Coco Chanel takes on a James Bond-esque allure in the third instalment of the Coco Mademoiselle films (complete with disappearing acts and speed boats on the Seine at… more

  • Chanel Reveals Rare Marilyn Monroe Recording

    Fri, 1 November 2013 12:30PM

    What did Marilyn Monroe wear to bed? Why CHANEL No. 5, of course. And what did I wear to bed last night you ask? Definitely not threadbare sheep-patterened pyjamas that are five sizes to big for me. Ahem. So we’ve all read about the original blonde bombshell’s provocative response when a journalist asked the movie star and singer what she… more
