As a prelim to everything black make up, which is surely what this winter is going to be – possibly splashed with bits of purple and navy – I’ve found this very sleek looking new addition to Compagnie de Provence, coming along in mid-September, to join the noire vibe. Two scents, Edition Noire Ylang Ylang and Edition Noire The Tonka (as in the French spelling of Tea, but can’t find the right widget to accent it…ah back to my Big Ladybird Book of Blogging) contain orchid extracts, black cumin oils and Nigella extract. I have my eye on the Hand Wash as a very stylish bathroom accessory.
