THE IN-TRAY

Just Landed: May Arrivals

WHAT WE’RE MAD ABOUT, CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF, OR HAVE PEGGED TO HIT CULT STATUS FROM THE STREAM OF NEW PRODUCTS ARRIVING IN STORES THIS MONTH.

Comme des Garcon Andy Warhol’s You’re In EDT

In 1967, Andy Warhol was working on an irreverent artwork called “You’re In”. It was composed of soda bottles painted silver and filled with a dubious yellow-coloured substance. Soon enough he received a cease and desist letter from Coca-Cola. The project was abandoned but, 50 years later, Comme des Garcon has picked it up again. Working with the Andy Warhol Foundation, the house has released You’re In. It’s now a bracing combination of orange, lime, coriander and jasmine. It’s unisex, wearable and with just a hint of Warhol eccentricity.

Josie Maran Argan Moonstone Stick

The moonstone trend is just getting started and this holographic highlighter is one of the first embodiments. This product is impressively multipurpose. It can be used on eyes, lips, cheeks and the body, to highlight, prime, moisturise or smooth. It’s creamy and glossy and delivers an ethereal shine that will look stylish all winter long.

Nomenclature Shi So EDP

This fragrance is based on the Japanese shiso plant, a herb seldom used in perfumes. The plant produces an intoxicating scent that evokes basil, cumin, mint and something mysteriously metallic. It’s a highly unusual juice with a uniqueness and energy that at once refreshes and captivates.

JINsoon Favourites Collection

These are your desert island polishes, the ones you’d pick if you could only wear three colours for the foreseeable future. The bestselling shades (Coquette, Blush and Toff) chime with any outfit, or colour trend, and have all the usual benefits of this New York brand’s polishes: high shine, long-lasting, chip-proof, vegan and 10-free.

French Girl Body Oil Duo

A new MECCA Trove discovery, these body oils nourish skin and impart a sun-kissed or pearlescent glow. Natural and organic, this luxurious duo is formulated with a smidgeon of mineral oxides and pigments for real shine. And with a subtle floral scent, they double as a dreamy body fragrance.

Diptyque Eau des Sens Hair Mist and Shower Gel

This month Diptyque is re-releasing their Les Eaux fragrance collection in new, shelfie-approved packaging, but that’s not all. The warm, citrus-filled Eau de Sens is now reborn as a hair mist and shower gel, so if you were looking for more ways to smell good, or in becoming a fragrance layering guru, these are for you.

Rodin Olio Lusso Lipstick

Five new shades are joining the beloved Rodin lipstick family. Infused with the brand’s signature jasmine and neroli oils, rose and lavender flower wax, as well as apricot and argan oils, these lipsticks pack serious hydration. Expect riveting colour without dryness. We’re fond of Pinky Winky... and not just because of its name.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Candles

As the temperature drops, nesting at home becomes all the rage. Appropriately, this new collection of six candles is inspired by the different houses Francis Kurkdjian has loved in his life. They scent your residence with the ambiance of an eclectic Parisian apartment, a romantic farmhouse or beach abode on the Atlantic coast.

iiuvo Candles

Two new dazzling scents from this French candlemaker: the clean and ultra-green Kurin, which transports you to the Japanese countryside, and the slightly sweet, musk-scented Bosé. Delivering 40 hours of burn time and truly sophisticated scents, they are the perfect final touch to any room.
