Portrait at Paul Smith

Portrait at Paul Smith
Capture the moment with Paul Smith’s new Portrait fragrance for men and women.
More than a decade after the launch of his first signature fragrance, 2013 sees the launch of Paul Smith’s most intimate and personal fragrances to date - Portrait For Men and Portrait For Women.
THE INSPIRATION – travel, photography, memories
‘A portrait is an attempt to capture the likeness of a person – to capture a moment’ .
Inspired by Paul Smith’s love of travel and passion for photography, Portrait is the result of a two year collaboration between the designer and new generation perfumer Barnabé Fillion. The result is an evocative snapshot of the designer’s travels, memories, passions and inspirations in the shape of two complex, sophisticated and multi-faceted fragrances - bursting with originality, authenticity and Paul Smith’s signature style.
Portrait For Men
A woody, spicy fragrance with a deep, sensual musky base, Portrait For Men is characterised by a distinctive Green Tea note, along with Cardamom, Pink Pepper, Cedarwood and a sweet, sensual balsamic facet thanks to Tolu Balm. “I played a lot with textures for the men’s fragrance, focusing on the quality of the ingredients and mixing spices from Paul’s travels abroad with old perfumery notes like Myrrh used in a modern way,” says Fillion. “I wanted it to have a ‘tailor made’ feel – like beautiful fabric touching the skin.”
Paul Smith Portrait For Men 40ml Eau de Toilette £39.00
Paul Smith Portrait For Men 80ml Eau de Toilette £59.00
Portrait For Women
A fresh, green floral fragrance, Portrait for Women is crisp, light and feminine with a spicy, fruity edge, powdery heart and a sensual musky dry down. “It’s a much more direct scent, painting a powerful picture of a garden full of Wild Roses - but Myrrh and Musk give it a twist, elegance and depth and the Black Tea reminds us of exotic travel,” explains Fillion. “It’s like a kaleidoscope of flowers, spices and old world perfume materials.”
Paul Smith Portrait For Women 40ml Eau de Parfum £45.00
Paul Smith Portrait For Women 80ml Eau de Parfum £69.00

Harvey Nichols #Leeds Introduces: He-Shi Youth Revivé Opti Tan

Harvey Nichols Leeds Introduces:
 He-Shi Youth Revivé Opti Tan -
Same Cult Formula, Additional Skincare Benefits

 He-Shi, the award-winning tanning brand wants to share the vast skincare benefits of its tanning range introducing their unique Youth Revivé Opti Tan formula with ‘Moisture Lock Technology’. The technology helps to improve hydration and skin condition, whilst simultaneously helping to fight the signs of ageing thanks to advanced moisturising ingredients such as Pro-Vitamin B5, Aloe Vera and Vitamin A & E. The same cult He-Shi tanning formulas continue to deliver a natural-looking, streak-free, quick, and easy-to-use tan, no matter the colour of your skin tone, or your application skills, and have added skincare benefits.
How He-Shi’s Youth Revivé Opti Tan Moisture Lock Technology works:
A combination of Panthenol & Glycerine helps retain moisture, which keeps the skin more supple and less prone to visible ageing. The Moisture Lock Technology is very effective as the humectants absorb water from the moisture due to their hygroscopic properties which remain on the skin to hydrate and prevent moisture loss. The process is achieved without the use of any oils or emollients and is therefore good for the pores as it’s not comedogenic.

Discover the many benefits of self tanning with He-Shi’s Youth Revivé Opti Tan:

·         Provides an instant, golden and natural finished colour
·         Quick and easy to apply
·         Helps fight the signs of ageing with advanced moisturising ingredients
·         Contains Moisture Lock Technology to improve hydration and condition of the skin

Harvey Nichols Cocktail of the Month: August

The Cocktail of the Month for August at Harvey Nichols ‪#‎Leeds‬ takes its inspiration from the Sicilian long hot summers. Made with Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, the winning cocktail “Southern Sun” was designed by the Fifth Floor Café Team London and combines the full bodied spirit with sweet fruity flavours of lime, mandarin and watermelon.
Each exotic blood orange that goes into Solerno Liqueur is hand plucked at the height of its short growing season from sun drenched groves on the slopes of Mt. Etna, in Sicily. The finest fruit is then processed within 24 hours to maintain the fresh, ethereal nature of the oil. The perfectly balanced liquid is then packaged in a beautiful, Murano inspired glass bottle which flushes a deep red like the flesh of the blood orange fruit. When mixed with the sweet Mandarine Napoleon and fresh fruits, the cocktail yields a velvety sweetness, harmoniously balanced with honeyed tartness.
Why not mix one up at home?

Southern Sun
- 40ml Solerno
- 15ml Mandarine Napoleon
- 15ml Lime Juice
- 1/6 Fresh Watermelon
- 1/2 Clementine Mandarine

Method: Muddle the watermelon and clementine together and then add the rest of the ingredients and shake hard with ice cubes. Single strain over ice in a long glass.
Garnish: Clementine wedges mixed through ice and two pear slices
