Jewels Are Parfumista's Best Friends - Thinking Ahead to Valentine's Day
Right about this time every January I get depressed. The Holiday season is over, the presents are opened, the tree is taken down, the weather is either miserable or, like this year, bizarre…When a mood like that strikes me, I cheer myself up by making a wish list. Besides, I learned that the earlier you start
For example, wouldn’t these black onyx and diamond earrings set in 18kt white gold ($2,495 at Heavenly Treasures) go ever so nicely with Strange Invisible Perfumes Black Rosette ($185 at Barney’s)? I think they would!
This citrine, cabochon, green topaz, peridot & diamond ring ($2,195 at Heavenly Treasures) is just asking to be worn with L’Artisan’s Fleur de Narcisse ($295 at Luckyscent)
These citrine, smoky quartz and diamonds button earrings set in 18kt white gold
...and/or this 14k gold and black onyx square bracelet ($1,995 and $1,050 respectively at Heavenly Treasures) ...simply have to be accompanied by Bois de Copaiba (CAD$100 at The Perfume Shoppe)
If this Multi-Strand Peridot & Pearl Scarf Necklace ($489.00 at Heavenly Treasures) could talk, it would discreetly whisper into Mr. Colombina’s ear that it has to be given to me together with a bottle of Diorissimo in perfume form ($142.99 at Imagination Perfumery).
Valentine’s Day without a heart-shaped little something is unthinkable. I am not a big fan of red and pink, but this white gold heart with black and white diamonds ($849.95 at Heavenly Treasures) is exactly what I like, and would go wonderfully well with an elegant and opulent classic like Diorama ($Quite a Lot, at Dior headquarters in Paris, Harrods and eBay).
So now that the Holiday Season is over, what's on your wishlist?
