Several months ago I joined this community and tonight I am going to introduce myself. What better way to do this than to give you my opinion on virtually every category I can think of which has a capacity for luxury, based on my own experience.
Fresh's Freesia soap or Patchouli soap
Freesia is clean & fresh and Patchouli is very heady and intoxicating
The packaging is also hearty and earthy and pleasant to touch.
Cle De Peau is what I swear by. I am also very fond of Shiseido's "Future Solution" cream, which has wonderful restorative capabilities.
Serge Lutens fragrances are a current favourite. I personally use the scent called Fleurs D'Oranger. Other staples include Creed fragrances and Hermes.
D.L.& Co. Candles are very intoxicating and the packaging is luxe and gothic.
I am a Mercedes-Benz fan and owner. The ride and suspension is completely smooth and the details are smart and wonderful. I also appreciate Jaguar XJ Types. Black cars only, please.
Serge Lutens and Cle De Peau. I love Chanel for eye shadows and brushes.
For style sans discomfort, I think Lanvin ballet flats, Chanel classic flats, and Manolo Blahnik's are top drawer. Sexy and fun shoe favourites include most Christian Louboutin and many Louis Vuitton Runway shoes. I also quite enjoy Chloe shoes and Prada Runway shoes.
Leather Handbags & Accessories:
Hermes, Hermes, Hermes. And Chanel for good measure.
Lucien Pellat Finet, Prada White Label cashmere, Pringle of Scotland, Vintage Cashmere by Koi, Chanel cashmere, etc.
Laduree in Paris, Payard and Financier in NYC, Boule in LA
Tiffany & Co. for their exquisite diamonds (and silver home goods), Cartier for their innovative designs (and pedigree).
Kiki De Montparnasse , Agent Provocateur, and La Perla. Also, Nina Ricci.
*Should you desire any more information about anything, please feel free to ask me. I started off in detail and trailed off as my list progressed, so unless you are familiar with the superb quality of the aforementioned, I do expect questions. :)
**Aside from clothing and other beautiful objects, I am fond of taking long, luxurious lunches by the ocean, swimming for hours, sleeping on grassy fields, and basically anything which seems hard to find in society.
