Oscar Wilde once said „I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.“ And it seems so am I 😉 When it comes to choosing products (really ANY product) from beauty items, to bags, shoes, photo cameras or even carpets somehow I always fall in love with EXACTLY the most expensive product and my credit card immediately starts to hyperventilate. Do you also have this „problem“ every now and then? So when is such a big purchase justified?
most wonderful time of the year
I think Christmas is the best time of the year to look back on all the hard work you have done over the last 12 months and enjoy yourself a bit. So if you have someone on your list to shower with indulgence and luxury this Christmas but you are not yet sure with what or maybe it is you yourself you want to treat with something extraordinary at the end of the year you are in luck. For this years joyous occasion I collected my favorite luxurious Christmas gifts.
Tom Ford Lavender Extreme
The stunning perfume creation I met at the Open House of Estée Lauder Companies this fall. Since this day the new and modern take on French lavender, Italien bergamot and tonka bean is one of my new favorites in my perfume wardrobe. The scents starts fresh and has an oriental dimension at the finish. Doesn’t this sound great?
Treat yourself: So Spa Vienna
A few weeks ago I discovered an urban oasis of tranquility and relaxation in the heart of Vienna. The luxury spa at SO/Vienna is a place to escape when things need to calm down and the need for an amazing facial or body treatment is high. A gift voucher for your BFF or your mom is perfect to enjoy the 750m2 spa and have the best views of the first district of Vienna. Be sure to check out the restaurant on the 18th floor afterwards.
Rosa Marlene Jewelry
Support your local goldsmith and shop one of Rosa Marlenes stunning pieces for a little more bling in your life or even create your individual one-of-a-kind and sustainable piece of jewelry.
Make someones home even nicer with the unique aromatic designs of the French cult brand Diptyque. In Winter I like warmer scents like Feu de Bois, Narguile or one of the great recommendations at Kussmund where a great range of their scented candles is available. It is also a great hostess gift for all the Christmas parties you are invited in December.
Dr. Tonar Cosmetics
Give your sensitive eye area the gift of soft luxury. I use this magical eye cream myself since May this year and I’m totally obsessed. The rich, especially well-tolerated cream is formulated with vitamin A and hyaluronic acid. It’s perfect for the sensitive eye region and supports the natural renewal process and the moisture balance of the skin. Worth the splurge 100%.
