MOR perfumes are like a nod to the past with a bit of a modern twist. Each fragrance aims to captivate and awaken the senses; to take us an a sensorial journey inspired by-gone eras, art, and cuisine. Such is the case with MOR's new additions, Little Luxuries Snow Gardenia and Belladonna. These perfume oils feel light and airy on the skin and soft to the touch with Belladonna smelling of meyer lemon and pink tulips and Snow Gardenia of yang yang and vanilla. We all love the little luxuries in life like traveling to a new place, a romantic lake side picnic and of course, a beautiful new fragrance.

I'm sure many of us have heard our mother's stories that begin like, "When I was young we would lay out all day and lather ourselves in oil….we didn't ever use sunscreen." For many, this was the norm because melanomas and the dangers of unprotected sun exposure weren't as known to the public as they are now. Although we are more educated, people are still spending a lot of time in the sun and possibly doing irreparable damage that we don't know about until it's to late.
In no way am I an advocate for 'no sun baking at all." I happen to love the sun, beach vacations and the way my skin looks with a bit of bronze color. However, we know a lot more about the dangers of the sun than my mother and her peers did at the time and we need to take that extra 5-10 minutes every hour or so to make sure we are properly protected. This is also where a great sunscreen comes into play. As seen in Town & Country, this year the FDA's new sunscreen regulations are coming into effect, with a maximum of SPF 50 being available and eliminating those confusing terms such as sunblock, sweat proof and water proof. The aim is to make sun protection less confusing and more appleaing.
Case in point, lifestyle brand Soleil Organique, that manages to capture the glamour of beach vacations in their stylish tan and gold packaging, yet very sensible and strict when it comes to having the safest possible ingredients. This luxury SPF range has been seen by the glamorous island hoppers of Turks & Caicos, Barbados and Nevis islands. As seen in June's Town & Country, Soleil Organique's Mineral Sunscreen Mist for Body SPF 45 boasts no synthetic fragrances, paragons, nor sulfates. Just the goods: Titanium and zinc oxide mineral screens and and anti-aging booster of antioxidant rich red algae. Shop this and the entire Soleil Organique sunscreen range here.
