Especially Escada Elixir | Clozette
From the oh-so-feminine concoction of the original 2011 Especially Escada comes an intense new scent that’s brimming with energy: Especially Escada Elixir. This fragrance is a powerful adaptation of the original rose-based scent that was designed for more playful moods. This time around, Especially Escada Elixir epitomises the modern woman who is elegant, feminine, bold and confident all at once. 

The rich and captivating scent has Turkish rose at its core, adding an element of mystery. Oriental facets envelope this rose extract for depth, colour and density. Ecuadorian Ambrette seeds amplify the rose scent giving it freshness while musk adds a luxurious touch. Accords of prune and fresh plums offer added richness and base notes of patchouli, white musk, amber and Madagascar vanilla complete the bouquet for that heady, alluring fragrance. 

If you are looking for a scent to complement a sophisticated and classy personality that radiates enviable confidence, this one is for you. It embodies the modern Escada woman, with her refined beauty and exemplary taste.

The festive season is upon us and that just means your schedule is packed with holiday get-togethers to attend and people to meet. Whether it be for brunches with your girls, dinners with your SO, all-nighters at the coolest clubs – you’re going to want to look and feel your best. 

The helpful folks that we are, we came up with five essentials you need this month to survive this happy, but hectic season.



If you don’t already have one, make place for a primer on your dressing table. It preps your skin for makeup, helps it go on smooth, and makes sure your foundation stays in place no matter where the night takes you. We like the Clio Kill Cover Realest Wear Moist Primer that hydrates the skin while absorbing excess sebum so you’re glowing for all the right reasons.
Dry Shampoo

Revive yesterday’s blow dry, instantly add volume and keep your hair looking fresh and clean with a dry shampoo. The Toni&Guy Hair Meets Wardrobe Cleanse dry shampoo tackles greasy scalp and puts life back into limp locks, and the advanced formula means no white powder telltale signs.


When you live in a tropical country, this is a must-have no matter what the season. During the festive month however, you want one that will keep you fresh longer, without an overwhelming scent and definitely one that won’t show up on your LBD. Opt for the Dove Clear Touch Anti White Marks that is gentle on your skin, fights BO, and won’t transfer on your favourite LBD.

Pond’s Flawless White Re-Brightening 
Night Treatment Moisturiser

Make the most of your beauty sleep (even if it’s for a few hours) with this effective night treatment that will repair skin damage, lighten and even out skin tone to ensure you wake up with a glowing, radiant complexion.

Closeup Deep Action Red Hot

You know that absolutely no look is complete without a dazzling smile. Closeup Deep Action with its Micro Shine Crystals effectively whitens teeth making them beautifully brighter with every brush. Closeup Deep Action comes in intense zesty Red Hot flavor and cool minty Menthol Fresh flavor to give you fresh breath and the confidence to talk to that cutie across the room. And really, who can resist a dazzling smile?



If you’re wondering what to add to your colleague’s Christmas stocking this year, look no further than My Castel Hand Cream from Etude House. She will surely appreciate the intensely moisturising, yet lightweight hand cream that is rich in shea butter and six other herbal ingredients that leave her hardworking hands refreshed and hydrated.
