CHANEL Unveils First ever Fragrance and Beauty Boutique in South Africa at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

If you’ve enjoyed the little pockets of luxury and pampering that are the Chanel beauty counters at Edgars or Woolworths, then you have probably wished that you could enjoy a little bit more of the Chanel experience. Known for its exceptional quality and standards in fashion and beauty, the brand has always honoured its rich heritage, which is woven into all its product offerings across skincare, fragrances and so on, as well as the ever-present touch of its founder, Mademoiselle Coco Chanel in every sphere of the brand.

December 12 2020 sees the unveiling of the first Chanel Fragrance & Beauty flagship boutique at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town which will be dedicated to fragrance, make-up and skincare. As a start, the store will open as a 61m2 space, which will feature the first stand-alone pop-up concept for SA and in 2021, will see its expansion to 106m2.

Chanel is a brand synonymous with luxury retail experiences, and this store will not be any different. So what can you expect from the flagship boutique? Prepare to embark on a journey of discovery as the décor reinterprets the codes and aesthetics of the House with signature tones of black and white and a touch of gold; with clean, understated lines that subtly define the distinct categories of make-up, fragrance, skincare, and in-boutique exclusives.

The boutique will offer an immersive experience, and a large range of fragrances featuring all your favourites such as the iconic N°5 and Coco Mademoiselle pillars, Les Eaux De Chanel and Les Exclusifs De Chanel  comprising 17 rare fragrances in identical bottles. Skincare fanatics are not left out of the equation, so be prepared to slather yourself with iconic creams, serums and elixirs  and explore Chanel’s skincare experience display featuring the likes of the premium Sublimage range.

Need to transform your look while you’re there? Indulge in the ultimate interactive experience as the make-up display invites you to discover the full range of Chanel make-up, with Chanel beauty advisers always on-hand to assist to provide personalised consultations and make-up tips.

Come 2021, the boutique will also offer a comprehensive selection of Chanel sunglasses (an elegant and modern mix of seasonal and classic styles) as part of its expansion, all embodying the exclusive allure of Chanel.

Make sure you’re the first to experience it all this Saturday and get ready to explore the elegance and audacity of Chanel on whole new level  we know we are.

Best Victoria’s Secret Perfumes For Women

Who amongst us wouldn’t like to smell good, feel attractive and have our senses transported to another dimension, all at the same time? A globally renowned fashion and beauty brand, Victoria’s Secret, founded in 1977, sure knows the secret desire of every woman’s heart. Bringing the glamor and high fashion of the VS ‘angels’ to your doorstep, the Victoria’s Secret perfume collection takes its inspiration from all things delectable, from lace and silk to berries and blossoms, to give you the perfect fragrance that speaks to you like no other. Here’s our list of top 15 Victoria’s Secret Perfumes that are most popular all over the world.

1. Bombshell Eau de Parfum
The best seller amongst Victoria’s Secret line of perfumes, Bombshell is a fruity floral scent also known as the ‘LBD of Fragrance’. The perfume contains notes of Purple Passion Fruit, Shangri-La Peony and Vanilla Orchid that combine to give you a fragrance which is the perfect blend of flowers and fruits.

Pros

  • Not overpowering
  • Pleasant fruity notes, suitable for people of all ages

Cons

  • Does not last long

Bombshell Eau de Parfum Review

Kick-starting this list for today is everybody’s eternal favorite from the Victoria’s Secret Collection—the Bombshell Eau de Parfum. With notes of Purple Passion Fruit, Shangri-La Peony and Vanilla Orchid, Bombshell is a subtle pleasure to the senses which very, very few perfumes have come close to in my humble opinion (Ferragamo’s Incanto Shine being one of them). This pleasant fruity floral scent comes with no limits on what ages may or may not use it and is a hit with young girls and women alike for not being too overpowering. Also, thanks to the fact that it isn’t what one would call a ‘statement perfume’, there are no restrictions on what time of the day, or in what sort of crowd one can use this perfume making it a winner all the way. My only complaint with this perfume is that it doesn’t stay on for as long as one would’ve liked, requiring constant reapplication. But if that doesn’t pose a problem to you, Bombshell is one perfume that should definitely make it to your shopping list this season.

2. Heavenly Eau de Parfum
A warm and ethereal scent that Victoria’s Secret describes as ‘an angel favorite’, Heavenly Eau de Parfum combines notes of White Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla and White Peony that make it an award winning favorite.

Pros

  • Strikes a good balance between floral and fruity
  • Lasts long
  • Light, pleasant fragrance

Cons

  • Mature fragrance—better suited to grown up women
  • Vanilla tones might be overpowering for some

Heavenly Eau de Parfum Review

For women who’d like a Victoria’s secret bestseller that has no hint of floral or fruity in it, here’s Heavenly to the rescue. A bestseller since its launch, this particular fragrance has undergone a revamp in recent times to make it more appealing to the new generation, though thankfully it’s intrinsic tones have remained the same. The new Heavenly now comes in a bottle that has angel wings on the cap and is embellished with tiny crystals—an ode to their VS angel fashion show? That’s what I’m assuming too. But a nice touch nonetheless. Coming to the fragrance itself, I find that the notes of White Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla and White Peony lend it a striking warm essence that to me speak elegance and sensuality. In fact, the sandalwood and musk, in addition to giving Heavenly a distinctly musky flavor, also lend to it a longevity that Bombshell lacks, thus making it perfect for long term wear. As a woman trying to make a subtle yet defining impression, there could hardly be a better scent than this. Keep in mind though, that this fragrance might be better suited to grown-up women than teenagers.
