In it's Lalique Bottle and rich fragrance, Black Orchid is a must-have for the fragrance connoisseur.

And because I am novice when it comes to describing fragrance, I am giving you the description direct from Neiman's:"Sensuous top notes of Black Truffle and Ylang mingled with fresh Bergamot and delectable Black Currant. Dramatic middle notes of dark, tempting Florals and rich Fruit Accords. The heart is deepened with the intoxicating Lotus Wood. Decadent base notes of Patchouli, Incense and Vetiver. Vanilla Tears add a fluid creaminess to warm Balsam and smooth Sandalwood. "


What I do know, is that Black Orchid smells very rich, dark, and a bit mysterious on me. I love the woodsy yet florally scent - and my husband, who notoriously HATES fragrance, commented that I smelled nice. That is good enough for me!!!

And the bottle - breathtakingly black and gold and, oh so beautiful. Who wouldn't love this as a gift???

This entry from Tom Ford in his new beauty line leaves me curious for more! I can't wait until more of the line launches next year.


One to Display.

What a pretty display! And a pretty display of eye shadows to boot. What am I speaking of? Why the Bourjois Astonishing Acrobat Eye Shadow Tin, of course.

This is one of those products you need to display proudly on your vanity, or in your bathroom for all to delight in viewing.

Packed into this beautiful vintage style tin are three "astonishing" eye shadows. The colors are the colors of the season. A beautiful frosty smoky eye will sparkle when applied - either in an everyday way, or a more dramatic one for the evening. And there are even directions (on a cute little "tip" card) on how to get a bevy of looks. The colors are soft silver, a light pink, and a almost black, dark blue.

Bourjois Astonishing Acrobat Eye Shadow Tin is just $28 over at

And they work as they intend. The shadow brushes are some of the most superior brushes I have used!
