A note from Kim...Scentsational!

I had the pleasure of meeting Jill Timms of Peony Melbourne last week and experience one of her wedding perfume consultations.

Jill uses the renowned Michael Edward's fragrance database, which ensures the choice of perfume is ideal for the bride on her most special day.
The entire experience was really interesting and really lovely. I felt like I had stepped into a little piece of Paris, with shelves filled with the most beautiful bottled potions and perfumes, books on fashion and style, scented candles, pretty soaps and at this time of year the most decadent christmas display I have ever seen, think a Harry Potter christmas with white owls and peacocks-Divine.

I recommend any bride in Melbourne that is still choosing a Perfume; for her wedding day, or like me as a signature scent to make a time to use this wonderful service. Even better Jill provides a stylish pre-wedding celebration for the girls, where they all receive their own individual Perfume consultation and goodie bag whilst enjoying some bubbly and canap├ęs. I couldn't think of a more special way to celebrate your up coming wedding with your closest girlfriends, or even as a special evening with your mum would be lovely.

For my consultation Jill helped me find the perfect scent for me. When I smelt it for the first time it actually made me feel emotions I didn't know existed-Jill advised thats a good thing. So my new signature scent is Gin Fizz by Lubin, a perfume that was originally introduced in 1955 and relaunched in June of this year. I love the story behind my new perfume just as much as I love the scent.

In 1955, a star captivated the crowds: appearing in films by Alfred Hitchcock and John Ford, playing alongside James Stewart and Cary Grant, Grace Kelly embodied the very elegance of America. Her mysterious charm even captured the heart of a Prince. It was in honour of her extraordinary beauty that Henri Giboulet created a perfume for Lubin which marked the decade, a very chic perfume, sparkling and fresh, evoking the cocktail in fashion that year in the ‘American bars’ of Paris, Gin Fizz.From Lubin - Paris
