There’s just something about that little blue Tiffany & Co. bag…
Of course the dream would be opening it to find a little blue Tiffany & Co. box containing some whopping great diamonds, but I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t also be thrilled to receive this newly launched fragrance, Tiffany & Love.
Tiffany & Love Eau De Parfum, £75, is fresh onto counters this month and is as gorgeously romantic as the name suggests. On first sniff, it’s fizzy, fruity and ultra feminine, thanks to grapefruit, basil and blackcurrant. Then, as it opens up you get fleshy white flowers, exotic jasmine and a warm dry down of cedarwood and earthy vetiver. Basically, imagine you’re drinking a crisp cocktail in a subtropical garden just after a thunderstorm has passed, so all the flowers smell ultra lush, sweet and vaguely mossy.
Unsurprisingly, from a brand who’ve spent over 180 years creating some of the world’s most desirable objects, the bottle is a thing of beauty born to go on dressing table display. Think pleasingly chunky glass lightly tinted that iconic blue with embossed leather and discreetly branded silver detailing.
What’s more, if you’re gift hunting for a man in your life or just prefer wearing typically ‘masculine’ scents yourself, Tiffany & Co EDT for Him, £54, is another feast for the senses. As an Eau de Toilette it has a lighter concentration of perfume oil than the women’s fragrance, which give the warm and spicy notes of ginger, cardamom, lavender and sandalwood a softer feel.
Whether you prefer fruity florals or soft and spicy scents, and even if you want to go matchy-matchy with a loved one (no judgement when the fragrances are this chic) there’s little not to adore about this Tiffany & Love duo. I’ll be wearing For Him as a cosy ease-me-into Autumn scent and displaying both in my bedroom in their Tiffany & Co. tubes. Who knows, it might give the other half some little blue box shaped ideas in time for Christmas.
As woman&home's Senior Beauty Editor, Fiona Mckim has tried more products than she’s had hot dinners and nothing makes her happier than raving about a brilliant beauty find on womanandhome.com or her instagram grid (@fionamckim if you like hair dye experiments and cute shih-tzus)
Fiona joined woman&home as Assistant Beauty Editor in 2013, working under legend Jo GB, who taught her everything she needed to know about the industry (clue: learn about ingredients and employ extreme cynicism).
In a previous life, Fiona studied journalism back home in bonnie Scotland and honed her skills as a magazine features writer, with a brief and terrifying stint on the showbiz gossip pages of a tabloid newspaper in between. She's a skincare fanatic who can’t resist adding an extra step to her routine if it’s all the rage in Japan, loves fragrance, has fun with makeup and never turns down the chance to test a new hair tool. Basically, she loves it all.
When not slathering herself in self tan or squinting at a tiny ingredients list on a moisturiser, you’ll probably find Fiona enjoying something to do with food - cooking it, eating it, cajoling her friends into trekking across London to try a hyped pop-up in a dirty car park.
