Apart from this being one of the prettiest bottles we’ve seen in a long time, we simply cannot get enough of Alien Eau de Parfum Spray from Mugler. Luminous like a brilliant solar flower, the fragrance exudes a positive energy, evoking the scent of wood warmed by intense sunlight. Sensual yet intriguing, the fragrance is soft and rich, almost like the caress of cashmere, R1 400 (60ml). Details: www.redsquare.co.za.
If you love coffee as much as we do, you’ll love this gorgeous French coffee press from Le Creuset. How does it work? Coarsely grounded coffee beans are steeped in boiling water and then filtered away by plunging the mesh sieve through the press. The direct contact between the beans and the water gives the coffee a stronger flavour. It also works well with tea and do we even have to say anything about the colour? It also makes for a great gift, R1 060. Details: www.lecreuset.co.za.
