Happ & Stahns

Dear me. Some things are so lovely they make me come over a little Violet Elizabeth. You know, if I can’t have it I will scweam and scweam until I’m schick?
This beautiful new perfume line from Anthropologie is a case in point. Did you ever see anything so pretty? Was there ever a perfume bottle so puttery? Or anything quite so charming as a tear-catcher filled to the brim with eau de parfum?

The perfume bottle with the pin cushion is inspired by a victorian ink well and accessorised by a darling little set of pins and the “tear-catcher” is housed in the kind of box designed to make the butterflies in vintage girls tummies across the land do a hop, skip and a jump with glee…

And the scent itself? Well for once, lets allow the sales blurb to do the talking because I couldn’t string the kind of sentences together, that would it justice in quite the same fashion…

Inspired by The Grand Tour – a trip across Europe enjoyed by young ladies in the 19th century as a finishing course to their educations – this ethereal floral scent evokes rose gardens, high teas and happy accidents. Housed in an inkwell-inspired bottle and topped with a pincushion to enhance the air of Victorian-era romance.
Created by Marypierre Julien of Givaudan, this floral fragrance of pink peppercorns and Darjeeling tea is splashed with a burst of grapefruit, a dash of wisteria and the scent of ancient Alba roses, then softened with amber wood and cashmere musk.
All that and a scrumptious play on words for the brand. Happ & Stahns…
Trust Anthropologie to get it so right.
