  • Five Things I’m Loving This Week

    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. They also happened to be brand-spanking new, so you could… more

  • 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

  • New Scents For Your Shopping List: Courrèges + Giorgio Armani

    Thu, 3 October 2013 3:15PM

    Along with good hair days, family and friends, fragrance is one of my most loved things. It captures mood and emotion in a way other products just can’t, and a single spritz can send you into a state of olfactory time travel, bringing half-forgotten memories bubbling to the surface. Here’s a run down of the… more

  • One (or All) of These Scents are What Your Man Should Wear. Like Now.

    Fri, 26 July 2013 12:23PM

    Confession: I love wearing men’s fragrances almost as much as I love my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. In fact, whenever my fiancé is spritzing on his cologne in the morning or night, I’ll quite often steal some for myself. It’s sexy, a little bit masculine, and quite often lasts that little big longer, which means re-sprays… more

  • How to: Shop for Fragrance

    Wed, 17 July 2013 12:33PM

    Fragrance shopping is one of my all-time favourite pastimes. I love weaving my way through the aisles in fragrance boutiques and moving from counter-to-counter in department stores, breathing in the newest scents and imagining when and where I’d wear it, and even the outfit and occasion it would pair best with. However when it comes to… more

  • Hermès Jour d’Hermès

    Tue, 4 June 2013 3:02PM

    Another masterpiece from perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena, this fragrance is just exquisite. We love the zesty top notes of lemon and grapefruit, but are most taken by the floral heart notes, which make us picture a bouquet of pretty sweet peas. This would be the perfect spring scent.

    RRP $125
