The one true fragrance that, without fail, my boyfriend tells me every time I wear it ‘you smell great’ is Kukui Eau de Parfum by Connock London. No matter what, ladies in the bathroom or other models at the fashion shows will ALWAYS ask what perfume I am wearing. And I’m not the only one that thinks it’s divine, Connock London has been featured in Grazia, Goop, Daily Mail, OK!, Stella & The Guardian. In Gwyneth Paltrow’s words “the scent is perfection”, it’s the perfect combination of sexy and elegance and can be worn from day to night. This floriental fragrance is built around the Gardenia flower and is complimented by a full bouquet of fresh flowers including Italian Bergamot, Moroccan Rose, White Jasmine and Calla Lily.

Limited Edition Gift Set is currently available via MyShowcase priced at £79. Beautifully packaged in Connock London’s signature white and gold box, this makes the perfect gift. The set includes; 100ml Kukui Eau de Parfum (RRP £75), Soothing Kukui Oil Bath and Shower Oil (75ml) and Kukui Oil Radiant Glow Body Oil (75ml).

What makes it extra special is that it’s not widely available in stores, so you don’t run the risk of smelling like half the high street!

For the flower lovers…


If you live in Edinburgh you can still pop to the fabulous flower stall at the bottom of Castle Street & Princes St (open Fridays/Saturdays only) and create a well priced bespoke bouquet for the special person in your life.

Fill your heart with love, start the day with a cup of Pukka’s ‘Love’ organic herbal tea, one of my personal favourites. Love tea, with it’s beautiful pink and gold design and intoxicating but delicate blend of organic rose, chamomile, elderflower and lavender also carries with it a story of love.
