Autumn may be here, but I like to keep my indoors sunny and bright. Karen Walker Runaway Azure Eau de Parfum perfectly epitomises this.

It’s Paradise in an Azure blue bottle. The scent evokes adventures in warmer lands, like running away to your clifftop treehouse. I’ve been wearing Karen Walker Runaway Azure all day and it’s so lovely.

It has that spicy, smoky scent of Autumn against the sweeter notes of citrus and rose, like an interplay between masculinity and femininity.

As you can see, I’m intending on sharing this wonderful scent with friends and family for Christmas as gifts.

It may seem early to be talking about Christmas, but it always catches up on me unprepared every year. Karen Walker is a renowned designer from New Zealand. She also designs clothes and the most amazing sunglasses ever.

When asked, Karen describes Runaway Azure as ” a mystical bonfire with smoky amber and warm spices, cardammon, black pepper, and Guaiac wood, sparkling against the lushness of oriental mandarin and rose.” I normally only go for Spring summery scents, usually something light floral or with citrus tones.

However,  Runaway Azure has been able to balance both seasons so well that I’ve been able to transition into a warmer spicier scent, and I’m loving it. That clear blue bottle is transporting me to the clear waters of the Seychelles or Maldives.

It’s hypnotic looking at the bottle and though it’s cold in London, I feel a glow of optimism and tranquility. Karen Walker fragrances are stocked in Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge. It is a gorgeous scent, you have to try it.

There will be a giveaway of three 30ml bottles, each retailing at £50 on my instagram tomorrow (Sunday October 13th till Wednesday 16th October 2019).

I hope you’ll enter.

Karen-Walker-perfumes-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell It is indeed an honour for me to introduce you to the newly launched Karen Walker fragrance range A, B and C. They are currently exclusively sold in Harvey Nicholls.

I will also be doing a special giveaway. An opportunity for you, my wonderful readers to have a chance of winning a bottle from this most delightful perfume range. Karen-Walker-perfumes-styling-and-photo-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-Bell Karen Walker is the super cool and renowned designer from New Zealand, with an amazing creative empire in clothing, accessories, eyewear, jewellery and even homeware.

I must admit that I am currently pining over her clothing and sunglasses collection.

Now adding to her prolific repertoire, is a newly launched collection of fragrances, simply called A, B and C. Karen-walker-perfumes-on-Little-Big-Bell Karen Walker has always been fascinated by how fragrance triggers and stores memories.

She started working on this new fragrance range 2 years ago and decided to make it into a trio of perfumes, a way of expressing the multiple personalities her customers may have.

She wanted to work with the best craftspeople in the world to create her range, bringing her to Charabot in Grasse, the world’s oldest fragrance house.

Let me now introduce you to A, B and C. Karen-Walker-perfume-A-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell ‘A’ is a perfume that typifies Happiness. It is a floral and fruity blend, with top notes of cassis, crushed mint leaves and grapefruit, heart notes of rose, lily of the valley, green tea and ylang ylang, on a solar musk base.

Doesn’t that sound divine? I’m wearing this scent now as I type. It really is light, fresh, fruity and minty.

This would definitely be one that I would wear in the daytime at work, topping up through the day for a fresh and energised feel. Karen-Walker-perfume-B-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell ‘B’ is feminine, ripe and delicious. Its top notes are of Bergamot, pink pepper, and grapefruit, heart notes of iris, white rose, peach and Sambac Jasmine, and base notes of patchouli, praline, tonka bean, musk and vanilla.

Wow! I’ve just sprayed some on right now. It has such depth and that musk laced with the sweetness of florals is just gorgeous.

It’s one of those scents that you would wear in the early evening. Elegant and a definite head turner as it lingers momentarily when you walk by.  Karen-Walker-C-perfume-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell ‘C’ is addictive. It truly is, I can’t stop smelling it since I sprayed it on my dress. It is an opulent scent with top notes of Gardenia, magnolia, mandarin and bergamot, heart notes of tuberose, orange flower, Sambac Jasmine and lily of the valley, and base notes of sandalwood, amber,musk and cashmere wood.

This scent is truly sensual and so perfect for date night. Karen-Walker-eau-de0parfum-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I just love all three and as I type I have all three on. You have a chance to win a bottle of either A, B or C. So, there will be 3 winners. Which personality are you, A, B or C?
