Products to Perk You Up


You know those products that make you instantly feel better? For me they’re almost always exclusively luxury and smell really really darn good. At the moment I’ve been having a renaissance with the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray – it cuts the flat/greasy/crappy look better than any dry shampoo can ever do. It instantly makes me feel cooler and a little less sleek and the scent is pretty spectacular. I like to spray this liberally after a long day before an evening out (no matter the levels of grease – even on first day hair), it just perks things up a bit. It’s akin to a push up bra, but for your hair.

My current go-to fragrance is Fleur De Portofino by Tom Ford (alongside Cafe Rose) from the new SS limited collection (out soon). The name alone makes me yearn for warmer and lazier days and I imagine myself back on the Amalfi coast. It’s light and floral yet has a deeper sexiness to it that lingers for a while. I spritzed this on yesterday before dashing to the theatre (after a long day of trundling the breadth of London) and instantly felt uplifted and more glamorous.

    My favourite scent to perk me up is the Laura Mercier Pistachio perfume. It’s the perfect combo of sweet and musky without being too sickly. I’d love to try the Tom Ford fragrances though as they sound so sophisticated.
