I can’t seem to get enough of Anthropologie. I don’t know what it is. I think the bohemian chic lifestyle that I buried somewhere long ago has surfaced and is coming full force. It’s just something about the store that reminds me of traveling the world, creating decadent meals, enjoying life, and savoring all its complexities.
I use the catalog as inspiration for my visual journals because they are stunning. They have something for everyone, but it’s their beauty section that continues to amaze me. The niche beauty selection will have your girlfriends going “where did you get that?” I’m not the wedding girl, but their wedding shop BHLDN (“beholden”) has me wanting to throw a party, put on Nina Simone, and dress in sequins and lace during the day.
It’s no wonder their new fragrance collaboration with Ineke Rühland – Floral Curiosities has me head over heels in fragrance love. I see myself wearing Angel’s Trumpet often and adding it to the arsenal.
- Angel’s Trumpet (Brugmansia) Rich and Opulent: Notes of honeydew melon, Seville orange and leafy greens. The fragrance is then warmed by cinnamon leaf and allspice and supported by Virginia cedar and white musk.
- Briar Rose (Rosa rubiginosa) Fruity and Powdery: Notes of Briar Rose, Black raspberry, bitter almond, exotic spices, black violet, patchouli and cacao.
- Poet’s Jasmine (Jasminum officinale) Citrus and Herbal: Notes of Jasmine tea, star anise, rosemary, absinthe, frankincense, cardamom, hinoki wood and guaiac wood.
- Scarlet Larkspur (Delphinium cardinale) Floral Oriental: Notes of claret wine, nutmeg, saffron, amyris wood, tonka bean and bourbon, blood orange, red currant and morello cherry.
