A bouquet in a bottle is what you get with French fashion house Kenzo’s latest fragrance for women – Flower by Kenzo L’Absolue.
It is infused with sustainably sourced Turkish rose, Tunisian orange blossom and Indian tuberose, and topped off with the line’s signature vanilla and white musk. The world’s most expensive spice, saffron, and a dash of mandarin essence lend an extra kick to the springtime scent.
Until Oct 31, Kenzo has also collaborated with dessert bar KKI Sweets as well as food and nutrition company Super Farmers to offer L’Absolue-inspired desserts and Apoteacary tea to KKI customers, who will receive a complimentary three-piece sample kit with the purchase of any confection.
Info: Flower by Kenzo L’Absolue is available at Sephora stores, Metro Paragon, Takashimaya and BHG Bugis in three sizes – 30ml ($111), 50ml ($154) and 100ml ($213).

Join the bra-volution
Triumph’s Autumn/Winter 2022 collection has launched with a collection of padded non-wired bras ($99.90).
It is named Triumph Flex Smart because of its flex inserts, which are positioned to mimic the movements of its wearer and provide enough support, so you can don the bras even for light workouts. The ultra-lightweight, temperature-regulating fabric also comes with non-crease cups.
Want more coverage? Pick a vest ($59.90) or a padded pull-on non-wired bra ($89.90) instead. Pair it with matching leggings ($79.90) to look effortlessly put together – whether you are biking or brunching.

Here Kitty Kitty
Hello Kitty fans can pounce on British cosmetic brand Pixi’s limited-edition range featuring the Japanese cartoon cat.
The Pixi + Hello Kitty Collection comprises a few familiar Pixi favourites jazzed up with Hello Kitty’s silhouette and iconic bow – like the brand’s iconic Glow Tonic ($42), an award-winning glycolic acid toner to exfoliate and brighten, as well as AnyWhere Patches ($35), with 90 multi-purpose patches to cool, calm and refresh.
And then there is the make-up, which comes in pretty shades inspired by Hello Kitty. The baby pink Hello Glow-y Powder ($27), for instance, is made with natural mineral pigments.
