L'oreal Prestige & Collections Christmas Fragrance Event

Last night I attended my first Handpicked Media bloggers event as one of their new fashion bloggers, and what an event to start with! L'oreal hosted their first fragrance bloggers event at the gorgeous Black and White room at The Soho Hotel, where we got to spritz and sniff our hearts out with fragrances from Maison Martin Margiela, Viktor & Rolf, Ralph Lauren, Stella Mccartney, Giorgio Armani and Diesel.

The favourites of the night were clear to see, with Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb and (untitled) by Maison Martin Margiela (a unisex scent) gathering crowds. The beautiful bust display stand for Flowerbomb will definitely see it become a Christmas gift favourite this year (what girl wouldn't want that on her dressing table). The beautiful simplicity of the (untitled) bottle and the intense, seductive scent was also a great combination and will definitely be going on my Christmas wish list.

After being shown around all the men's and women's fragrances by the *fantastic* L'oreal PRs and getting some great insider tips (Diesel's 'Only the Brave' was the best selling men's fragrance last year), I settled down at the gorgeous bar area for canap├ęs and champagne with 2 lovely bloggers, Amy from Wolfwhistle and Sarah from The Enchanted Hunters where we drank too much champagne and talked about travel, hair and Forever 21.

The gorgeous and Christmasy location was a great choice (I have a soft spot for The Soho Hotel after holding an Alice in Wonderland event there during fashion week), and the huge Christmas tree decorated with baubles and perfume bottles and fairy lights made my day (who said it was too early for decorations).

What's your favourite scent?



  1. My favourite scent is still Paco Rabonne's XS. :)

    It was so lovely to see you, Carina! x


  2. Oh I have that too, great scent! I also love the Space NK scents, they're lovely, especially enrapture! I'm turning into a perfume junkie!

    It was so nice to see you too, please don't change your hair - I love it!
