11 July 2013 by

It's set to be glorious weather this weekend and we know you're certain to be swept up in a whirl of barbeques, beer garden gatherings and beach visits. But we're darned glad you've had time to catch up on the latest beauty world whisperings, we have some gems to let you know about...

Glossybox Teams Up With The James Hotels

Glossybox, the curator of global luxury beauty products that can be delivered to your door, has this season teamed up with The James, an environmentally aware brand of luxury hotels, to create an in-room eco-friendly beauty box, compiled especially with the needs of a guest in mind. This is a limited edition beauty box that is available in select suites at The James in Chicago, Miami and New York for £22.50. The box itself is fully recyclable and each of the five products included have been produced with the environment in mind as well as being a handy travel size.

The items included are as follows:

Caldrea Body Oil: A body oil rich in botanicals that hydrates, brightens and nourishes skin.

Alessandro International Pedix Heel Rescue Balm: A luxurious cream enriched with shea butter, alantoin and tea tree oil to nourish dry skin.

Davines Nounou Pak Nourishing Repair Mask: A deeply nourishing hair mask in carbon neutral packaging.

Heartland Fragrance Loofa Soap: A hand-poured loofa soap encased in gentle glycerin.

If you’re taking a trip stateside this summer The James hotels are well worth a look in, if only for this gorgeous little set of treats!

Olivier Polge Joins The Chanel Fragrance Labratory House As Perfumer

The world of Chanel fragrances first began in 1921 with the creation of the universally adored Chanel No5. The creator was Russion perfumer Ernest Beaux. According to fashion legend, the already renowned designer picked the fifth sample of the fragrance that Beaux presented to her and the name stuck. In 1954, when asked what she wore to bed, Marilyn Monroe famously answered ‘Just a few drops of No5’. And of course with more contemporary additions such as Coco Mademoiselle and Chance, Chanel has continued to keep us enthralled with its fragrance evolution.

The latest development within its fragrance circle comes, this month, in the form of Olivier Polge who, it has been announced, will join the Chanel Fragrance Laboratory as Perfumer alongside Jacques Polge and Christopher Sheldrake. Olivier Polge has been Perfumer at IFF since 1998 and has already developed internationally renowned fragrances for a good deal of leading luxury brands and houses as well as being awarded the ‘Prix International du Parfum’ in 2009.

Upon his arrival Olivier Polge will undergo a complete integration programme within the House of Chanel and its culture. Well that sounds fabulous to us! Can we come along too?
