REN get down and dirty to promote clean skin

REN have long been one of my favourite skincare companies, thanks to their carefully-sourced ingredients and understated packaging.  Ren itself means ‘clean’ in Swedish and to remind people of the company’s natural approach to skincare they’ve just produced their first short film.

Shot in a fjord in Sweden (makes you jealous just looking at it) and featuring two young lovers getting down and dirty (makes you even more jealous) there are two versions –  the one below and a naughty 18+ version, with lots of Swedish-style nudity, which I can’t show here but which you might want to look up on YouTube!

Josephine’s Rose candle by Jonathan Ward – the ultimate bedroom accessory

Looking for a great Valentine’s gift for the woman in your life? Then how about this fantastic scented candle from Jonathan Ward London? Inspired by the legendary romance between Napoleon and Jospehine and the latter’s passion for roses, Josephine’s Rose features a medley of rose notes (english rose, tuberose and tea rose) but manages to avoid being old fashioned or ‘Nanish’ thanks to a sexy, musky note of amber.

As with the Serge Lutens fragrance Tuberose Criminelle (which I reviewed here) when rose is ‘sexed-up’ by other ingredients, debased a little if you will, it always smells miles better to me.

As always Jonathan is clever with his choice of ingredients – taking something potentially ordinary and giving it his own unique twist so it becomes extraordinary. Ideal for setting the perfect bedroom mood. Just add matches and willing partner.
