Celine Wants to Make Your Bath Luxurious

Back in 2019 Celine introduced fragrance, with 11 unisex perfumes designed by Hedi Slimane. Earlier this year they followed up with solid soaps. Now the brand is diving fully into bath and body products with the launch of Cologne Céleste. Consisting of an eau de cologne, body and hair oil, bath milk, as well as soap, the new scent features notes of orange blossom, lemon essence, angelica, ambrette, and orris. Each is meant to complement one another, creating a bathing ritual that draws inspiration from Slimane’s olfactory journal and its themes of private moments, childhood comforts, and familiar gestures.

Tôteme Introduces Jewelry

Fans of Scandinavian minimalism are going to be thrilled to note that everyone’s favorite cool girl brand Tôteme is now offering jewelry. Inspired by bold architectural forms and intended to be the foundation of your jewelry collection, the line will include both fine and brass options. Over in the fine category, you’ll find diamond-set midi rings as well as a chain necklace, both made in 18 carat recycled gold and conflict-free stones. For those looking for something at a lower price point, the signature pieces consist of a bangle, hoop earrings, and a collar necklace all made with 18 carat gold-plated brass, with some pieces inset with neutral toned enamel. To showcase the pieces the brand tapped Steven Meisel to shoot model Vivienne Rohner. You can shop the entire collection starting tomorrow, November 18.
