26 Jul Harrods Christmas preview
This week it was the turn of Harrods to get into the Christmas spirit as they held their Christmas in July event at London’s Mandarin Oriental hotel.
The theme this year is gold and the room was resplendent in wonderful decorations, amazing food, a fake fire (yes, you read that right!), the obligatory tree and of course, the most luxurious and decadent gift ideas on the planet, including a £20,000 hamper.
Apparently there’s a kind of competition between the finer department stores each year to offer the biggest, baddest hamper, and Harrods has upped its game from last year’s 10K hamper to this one, simply because they can.
But beauty-wise, what caught my eye (apart from an amazing Tom Ford LBD) were the new Elizabeth Arden skincare goodies and the Michael Kors fragrance trio which I am totally lusting after.
The three scents are Glam (jasmine), Sexy (amber) and Sporty (citrus); all three are gorgeous but Glam is my favourite as it smells uncannily like another perfume I love, which also contains jasmine in the mid note.
All products are available from September/October onwards.
