Harrods’ Fragrance Explosion

When it comes to luxury cosmetics, Harrods’ beauty hall always comes up trumps in our little black beauty book, so we were thrilled to hear that London’s favourite department store will be dedicating an entire month to the world of perfume, with a series of in-store events from some of its most prominent fragrance brands. Whether you’re after tutorials, expert advice or scent workshops, there really is something for everyone. Our top tip? Pop 16th September in your diary, when you can sip champagne and munch Chanel No 5-inspired macaroons with Chanel’s fragrance expert Joanna Norman. We’ve also got our eye on the Jo Malone Masterclass on 3rd September, complete with afternoon tea…

Opening 22 August. For more information and to book tickets email

Decléor’s Prolagene Lift Is A Sell-out!

When a beauty product sells out in 8 minutes it must be good, which is why we suggest you hurry up and get yourself signed up to the waiting list for Decleor’s new Prolagene Lift… before it’s too late! Launching exclusively on QVC last week, this clever youth-boosting serum sold out within 8 minutes, live on air. The secret lies in the super-duper formula, which contains the highest concentration of Decléor’s new miracle molecule L-Proline, guaranteed to lift, smooth and firm skin to dizzy heights. We want!

Decléor Prolagene Lift Intensive Youth Concentrate, £60, available exclusively at QVC throughout August nationwide from September    

WATCH: Behind The D&G Scenes With Mario Testino And Laetitia Casta

There’s nothing we like more than a little beauty video to cheer up our day and we just couldn’t wait to share this rather steamy video with our fellow Graziettes. Shot by the legendary Mario Testino, this backstage sneak-peak for the new D&G Intense fragrance stars the gorgeous Laetitia Casta and her ‘Intense’ lover, aka Noah Mills. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana reckon Miss Casta looks pretty damn gorgeous, too: “(She) is the perfect embodiment of the quintessential Dolce & Gabbana woman, in all her incarnations: all of them Intense.” Enough said, we think. Just watch and enjoy ladies, watch and enjoy…

Dolce & Gabbana Intense is available exclusively from Harrods and nationwide from 21 August

Haris Launch The Hairomatherapy Treatment

When stress levels run high on the Grazia beauty desk, Aromatherapy Associates’ stress-busting oils never fail to make us feel all normal again, so we were beyond thrilled to hear that our favourite botanical brand has teamed up with hair gurus extraordinaire HARIS to create The Hairomatherapy Treatment. With 4 different treatments to choose from- Revive, Nourish, Re-build and Post-Holiday repair, there really is something for every stressed-out scalp. The best bit comes after the oil has been worked into the hair- a 20-minute back, neck and shoulder massage guarantees serious relaxation, and the treatment finishes with one of HARI’s famously glossy blow-dries, while you enjoy a fresh kiwi, apple and mint smoothie. Sold? We are.

Treatments cost £125. Visit for more information
