Hugo Boss Alive
Feel alive and exude that big boss energy with Hugo Boss Alive— a fruity and woody Eau de Parfum that was made for women by a woman. This joyful fragrance is designed to inspire women to live life to the full every single day. It’s the perfect gift for the powerful, elegant and sensual Boss Woman who marches to the rhythm of her own drum.
The scent unfolds through notes of energetic apple, sharp blackcurrant, sun-kissed plum and warm cinnamon that will remind you that life is best lived vibrantly. Madagascan vanilla becomes a marker of the perfume, a symbol of the joie de vivre that the Boss Alive woman possesses. At the floral heart, Indian Jasmine Sambac envelops the senses as it contrasts with Thyme, reflecting her ability to balance awareness and abandon with ease. The backbone of the scent leans on vibrant and strong woods comprising Chinese cedarwood, creamy sandalwood, olivewood and Alaskan goldenwood
The perfume is housed in a sleek and sexy bottle. The shape and heavy glass bottle are encased by a feminine golden metal band—a solid and tangible reminder that happiness can be found within each moment.
Elegant and powerfully feminine, Hugo Boss Alive is for the woman who knows that being true to yourself is your greatest strength. Shop the fragrance now here.
Mada Skin & Tonic: Hand sanitiser never felt (or smelt) so good
A hand sanitiser that offers no irritation or discomfort but an absolutely pleasurable and sensory experience that you’ll want to do regularly. Yes, that’s right Mada Skin & Tonic is the ideal gift for such a time as this. It’s been rough and our hands that serve us so much, need some tender love and care. It is enriched with a soothing blend of nourishing ingredients (read Shea butter, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and avocado oil)) that work to moisturise your hands, soften and heal dry skin. If that wasn’t enough, see age-defying results from a blend of Glycereth-26 to keep skin plump, and Betaine to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
There are five gloriously delicious fragrances to choose from; Warm and opulent Tobacco and Vanilla; Rich and creamy Vanilla Cupcake; Refreshing and fruity Watermelon & Mint; Zesty and invigorating Grapefruit & Rosemary and Tangy and spicy Lemongrass & Ginger.
You can be confident that there are no questionable ingredients in this sanitiser; just gentle, no super gentle ingredients that support your skin with captivating aromas. Keep your hands lightly scented, nourished and most importantly clean throughout the day.
