Pink Zara Tie Back Dress Outfit Accessorize Bag Pink Zara Tie Back Dress Outfit Accessorize Bag Pink Zara Tie Back Dress Outfit Accessorize Bag Paris
(Dress: Zara, Bag: Accessorize, Shoes: Charlotte Olympia)

Sitting on the Eurostar first thing on a Wednesday morning surrounded by lively Chelsea fans heading to the latest PSG game (it's safe to say I didn't quite fit in there- y'know being an Arsenal fan and all ; ), it was easy to forget that the city of romance, cheese and perfect pastries was less than a few hours away- and on this occasion I was pretty excited to pay a little visit.

Now, before this whistle-stop trip to Paris I wasn't overly familiar with flash sales site ventee-privee- the reason behind this little trip! The site is home to hundreds of discount online sales, and on this occasion infamous French perfume house, L'Artsian Parfumeur (sister brand to our much loved Penhaligon's) was planning their sale (live tomorrow), and invited myself and the gorgeous Reem along to learn a little about them...

In short- the breakdown of each fragrance is build up of hundreds of different scent notes and droplets- from sweet, to fruity, to fresh and woody- it's just finding the balance that helps create the things we really like. Crazy, huh?

It's certainly not as floral and light as my normal go-to's (read: Daisy) and won't be hitting Boots anytime soon (I ain't no Britney) but is a little bit more 'grown-up' if you like- and certainly something I enjoyed getting to learn a little more about! Who knew there was so much to it?! Until next time Paris!
