Le Metier de Beaute and Ken Downing Pampille de Seduction. A Luxury Gift at It’s Finest.

You may recall my truly extravagant gift ideas post from a couple of weeks ago. Well I have the most truly luxe holiday gift to introduce to you today. The Pampille de Seduction limited edition fragranced couture necklace curated by Neiman Marcus Fashion director, Ken Downing and designed by Le Métier de Beauté. This 24-karat gold plated chain and 18 hand-cut and rare Carnelian stones, a stone once available exclusively to nobles, creates a unique statement piece perfect for the hard to buy for woman that has it all.


What makes this necklace so special is the cutting edge embedded fragrance technology. The fragrance chambers release the  Gardénia, Orchidé and Ambre scents.

Gardénia: Playful and sweet, this classic fragrance projects hints of orange blosson and jasmine.
Orchidé: Spicy seduction, this fresh aroma captures the deepest scent released by the orchid just after sunset.
Ambre: Warm, exotic and sensual. Earthy wood notes mixed with deep, sweet tones give this scent vintage charm.


80″ woven silver chain
24-karat gold-plated chain
323 grams of silver
6.5 grams of gold
20 rare, hand-cut carnelian stones

I Am In Love With This Stocking Stuffer!


I am absolutely in love with this product as a stocking stuffer idea for any woman in your life! Jessica of Beautezine had a similar product in her handbag at an event last month and we were all ooohing and ahhhing over it. These just popped up at Neiman Marcus online and I think I will nab up a bunch for my babysitter, teachers, and family, and friends. They are very compact at a size of 2″H x 3 1/2″W x 2″D.  The Pinch Provisions Minimergency® Kit packs every emergency essential into a cute, compact case containing items such as hairspray, nail polish, nail polish remover, emery board, lip balm, earring backs, clear elastics, sewing kit, double-sided tape, stain remover, deodorant, towlette, pain reliever, tampon, breath freshener, dental floss, and an adhesive bandage all in a zip-around case.

There is also a version available at Sephora!
