Last night we headed down to the iconic King’s Road, London to celebrate the launch of Royal Apothic’s new perfume at Anthropologie. The perfume named after the historical building ‘Antiquarius Petals’ now the site for Anthropologie’s store was created to celebrate 100 years of The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, as featured in our previous post. We lavished ourselves in Royal Apothic’s latest scent, sipped cocktails, donned floral head dresses created by the lovely Flower Appreciation Society ladies, ogled at pretty dresses and cooed at the Anthropologie office dog. Here are a few snaps from our fabulous evening:
Royal Apothic: Antiquarius Petals the brand new bespoke fragrance for Anthropologie is inspired by the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and is a fresh, contemporary floral scent. The new scent is infused with blackberry, grapefruit, mandarin, tangerine and floral mid notes of jasmine, orange blossom, violet and rose with base notes of patchouli, eucalyptus, sandalwood, exotic musk & vanilla. The scent smells fresh and feminine, a perfectly wearable floral scent that’s not too granny or overpowering. There is also a hand cream in the same scent, available exclusively at Anthropologie .
Anthropologie: The Anthropologie store housed an eclectic mix of homeware, clothing, beauty products and books. In true Anthropologie style, every surface be it an embroidered dress or hand painted rolling pin was a luscious, patterned visual spectacular! The Kings Road store is a vast expanse of space, merchandised to perfection, mixing the stripped back industrial interior of the historical building with the textural, brightly coloured range of lifestyle goods designed by Anthropologie and various globally based independent artists. Anthropologie cleverly mix contemporary design with elaborate decor and goods oozing traditional creative craft and ethnic inspired techniques.
Flower Appreciation Society: The fabulous ladies of the Flower Appreciation Society worked throughout the night to give each party guest a beautiful bouquet headband. Florists by trade, the flowers were freshly cut in all the colours of summer. We were so excited to get our headbands, we chatted and watched as the ladies cut the flowers and fashioned our headbands. The Flower Society ladies told us their mission is to ‘get everyone in the world wearing floral headbands’ as they make you ‘instantly smile’. I opted for pink tones to match my new Raspberry Jessica nails and true enough, couldn’t stop smiling. We got quite a few compliments on the tube ride home!
