Guerlain innovates once again this season by introducing three new perfumes directly linked to 
its most popular fragrances. 
From the moment he began at 2008, Thierry Wasser has never ceased to explore new avenues, all the while upholding the guiding principles that made the brand famous. The result? Unique fragrances, each more sophisticated and beloved than the next.
As such, Guerlain proposes Les Parisiennes - L'Heure de Nuit, Les Elixirs Charnels - L'Eau de Lingerie and Muguet 2013 - One Day, One Fragrance.

The Les Parisiennes collection, created to tribute to Parisian women who claimed their beloved discountinued fragrances, now includes L'Heure de Nuit - a modern interpretation of the iconic fragrance - L'Heure Bleue..This very soft &elegant fragrance is lit up with a fresh and contemporary sparkle, thanks to notes of bergamot, jasmine, and even heliotrope. 
Price: $290

As part of the Elixirs Charnels range, Guerlain has created a sensual and indulgent limited edition Eau de Lingerie - to be sprayed directly on lingerie:-)
This beautiful fragrance comprised of ambrett seeds, iris, rose and white musk...
Price: $100

Each Spring, Guerlain proposes an ultra-limited edition of Muguet.
This year, the bottle contains a sophisticated fragrance whose heart note of lily of the valley is joined by lilac, rose and jasmine. Floral and green - Muguet 2013 exudes an ephemeral freshness, like that of the flower itself - for a lasting impression...
Price: $545

Last night, Calgary's social scene experienced the second Schmancy fundraising extravaganza, in support of Glenbow Museum.

Since the very beginning, the vision of this event was to deliver a memorable evening of a unique cultural experiences set against the backdrops of the museum's amazing exhibits - did truly fulfilled its promise!!

The evening began with its VIP Reception in the beautifully designed space, followed by the feature presentation of renowned Canadian radio&TV journalist, "The Hour" host - George Stroumboupoulos,  this time interviewed on the stage by Canadian actress, producer - Rebecca Northan.

After fantastic&funny talking - all guests could choose their own adventure, partying on three floors!!
The rooms were filled with live music entertainment - Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, Jk & The Static, Sophie Serafino - as well as extraordinary cuisine, cocktails and conversations. But what is more unique, art lovers had a chance to check the gallery and its unique exhibitions,such as "Made in Calgary: The 1960's Preview Exhibition"; " Mavericks and First Nations Galleries and Entertainment" and "Art Park Silent Auction" featuring the 11 wonderful works of art that have been donated by some of  local galleries and their artists.

And of course - all party goers couldn't enjoy themselves more than dancing all night long to the sounds of  music provided by Australian DJ Sideshow at the Club Pivot Lounge...

So far, it was definitely one of the Schmanciest & fanciest night in our city...

In 2013- we can expect lots of surprises, starting with Orchidee Imperiale The New Cream - which is a part of celebration Orchidee Imperiale Myth, presenting new Gold Orchid technology. This new cream - available at the selected Guerlain counters since January 2013 - upgraded IOME with Gold Orchid, selected amongst 30.000 species for its exceptional vital energy, that prolongs cellular fertility.
The results? Deeply nourished and moisturized skin that appears plumper and

In February 2013 - women can expect launch of Guerlain new fragrance - Eau de Lingerie - which is - as the name suggests - designed for fine underwear, delicate fabrics, as well as intimate & special occasions. This sensual and intimate fragrance is composed as a floral, powdery and musky scent. It contains notes of iris, rose, vanilla, sandalwood, white musk and ambrette.
The perfume comes out on the first Valentine's Day as a part of Les Elixirs Charnels collection.

Thierry Wasser has chosen and brought together all the new materials and oil factory resources of the bitter orange tree : the fruit, the bitter orange; the flower, the orange blossom neroli essence and orange blossom absolute and the twig&the leaf : petitgrain essence - to create new scent of Aqua Allegoria, called Nerolia Bianca - coming this April 2013.


This time of a year is always exciting because most of the beauty brands revealing their new make-up looks for upcoming season. Because I love Guerlain since I first started using their products-I couldn't wait to see their 2013 Spring Make-up collection worn by beautiful - as always - Natalia Vodianova.

Look at her eyes-they are mesmerizing!!!!The new Mxi Lash Mascara has a full round brush with cross action fibres to coat lashes giving them instant volume, curl and thickness. And it comes in two shades - black(noir) and violet!!

There are two new eye palette's - the Ecrin 4 Couleurs Collectors Palette's. Those long lasting powder eye shadows come in shades of violets&greens : 501 Attrape-Coeur - which are mauve, violet, white and purple, as well as 502 Coup de Foudre - which are green, silvery pattina, bronze khaki and intense coral.

 The eye pencil - Le Crayon - comes in 5 shades, which are 01 Black Jack, 02 Jackie Brown, 03 Deep Purple ( see the picture below), 04 Katy Navy and 05 Amber Silver.

Meteorites are one of my favourite Guerlain makeup products!! The new Meteorites Perles du Paradis -has different shades of illuminating, sparkling powder balls that are much larger than those
 from the previous collections. Six different colored pearls range from pale pink, peachy pink, icy pink, medium pink, dark pink and silver.
The new, gorgeous light pink container also comes with a pink furry powder puff with a black bow on the top of it.

The perfect makeup cannot be complete without appropriate texture&shine!!
