A godsend for those living in hot and humid climates (read: all of us here in Singapore), Dior Prestige’s signature La Crème now boasts an air-whipped, lightweight texture, thanks to its unique Skin Breathe technology, which ensures round-theclock hydration without any greasiness. That it gives skin a soft, velvety touch is a much-welcome bonus.

Every summer, Armani Privé serves up a new limited edition scent inspired by the Giorgio Armani spring/summer collection. And while the past few editions placed strong emphasis on richer, more intense notes like jasmine, sandalwood and incense, this year, Armani Privé’s Fil Rouge Limited Edition EDP focuses on the lighter iris extract. Echoing the graphic dynamism of the runway collection, iris brings to Fil Rouge a touch of tenderness and luminosity. To round it off , white musk, bergamot and aldehydes give it a modern edge while retaining Armani’s signature elegance and femininity.
