After yesterday’s post all about Hugo Boss’ Jour parfum, which is the perfect scent for everyday, I thought I would do a complete 180 and show you the gorgeousness which is Hugo Boss Nuit, which is one of the brand’s Runway Collection. Packaged in a sleek, jet-black bottle adorned with minimalist fashion illustration, Hugo Boss Nuit feels like the perfect glamorous evening scent. It’s warm, sensual and sweet perfume which feels like a treat to wear!
When first applied, there’s an almost champagne-esque note which comes courtesy of the peachy top notes. The heart notes of the scent are gloriously floral – a mixture of Jasmine, Violet and White Flowers, which are perfectly balanced and make the fragrance feel super sexy. The base notes of Moss and Sandalwood are lighter than a lot of other ‘night’ perfumes I’ve tried, and keep Nuit feeling very fresh, even though it is a slightly deeper, almost darker scent than many of my others. It’s absolutely beautiful though, and I can’t tell you how many people have asked me what I’m wearing when I have it on!
Hugo Boss Nuit is part of the brand’s Runway Collection, and is priced at £65.00 and is available here
To say that I was bowled over by the looks of Hugo Boss’ Runway Collection is a bit of an understatement! When you have a gorgeous fragrance coupled with chic fashion illustrations by Jason Wu, you know you’re onto a winner!
The Runway Collection is available as 50ml and 75ml bottles, and are simply new bottles for some of Hugo Boss’ best loved fragrances, so if you’re a Jour fan, this would be a perfect addition to your collection! Since I hadn’t actually tried any of Hugo Boss’ female fragrances before, I thought Jour would be a great start.
Described as ‘A colourful floral bouquet’ inspired by the first light of day, this is one seriously addictive perfume! Somewhat unsurprisingly, Jour is the perfect day fragrance thanks to the pretty mix of citrus and white flowers. When first applied, I got a huge whoosh of the Lime Accord and Grapefruit Flowers, it feels shower-fresh and super invigorating! Once the fragrance settles into the skin, the soapiness of Honeysuckle, Lilly of the Valley, and Freesia notes become stronger, creating a beautifully balanced composition. The longevity of the parfum is fabulous thanks to the base notes of Creamy Amber and White Birch, and it’s these warmer notes which really ground the fragrance, making it feel wonderfully sophisticated.

I’m not sure quite what it is about August, but we’re seeing some really awesome beauty releases. From new Fall makeup to fragrance re-lauches, we’re being seriously spoiled! One of my favourites of these are the Hugo Boss Runway Collection.
Comprising of three of the brand’s best loved fragrances (Jour, Ma Vie and Nuit), the Runway Collection has been adorned with three super-slick fashion illustrations courtesy of Jason Wu. Available in 50ml and 75ml sizes, this launch is perfect if you’re looking to find a new favourite!

When I got a sneak peek at Pinghe’s gorgeous AW15 collection, I have to admit, I got a bit excited. The collection feels so slick, streamlined and modern I just had to share it with you. The collection is pretty much everything I adore – the clean lines and neutral palette just screams modern classic, and I can’t tell you how much I want to try on everything!
The whole collection is inspired by the artwork of Kazimir Malevich, who specialised in geometric abstract art, and you can really see the nods to his work in the sharpness of line in the pieces. Pinghe have also reflected his work in the ethos of ‘no matter the angle, the beauty does not change,’ This means that real attention to detail has been paid to the back and sides of the garments, which come adorned with the most divine ruffles and embroidery.
Although from a distance, a lot of the pieces look quite minimalist in design, when you get up close and personal with them, Pinghe’s iconic embroidery detailing becomes the star. The garments have been adorned to really complement the wearer’s shape in the most flattering of ways.
I absolutely adore how much thought have been put into the garments – they’re really a work of art unto themselves. All the garments are constructed out of LTF1 fabric, a signature of Pinghe, so that the architectural detailing really shines. The fabric doesn’t crease, so the pieces are always going to look great.
As you can tell, I’m more than a little in love with the collection! If you are too, Pinghe is stocked at Fenwick’s London and Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge. You can also find the designs here.
