Fabulous smell in "ma maison"....



A package arrived in the mail this week. When I opened the box a delicious smell of exotic spices wafted out.

Inside the box was this very stylish looking sachet....




along with two chic looking black boxes.............



inside each of the boxes was a very chic and gorgeous smelling sachet, the first had a stunning liberty ribbon....




The 2nd sachet was  wrapped with raphia and decorated with star anise and a cinnamon stick ....



These lovely sachets are made in France by a company called Mi-Septembre – pronounced "Mee-Septombre.

The company was founded in 1994 by fashion and costume designer Olivia Graffeuille, the Mi-Septembre brand was immediately noticed at the Paris "Maison & Objets" show.

Olivia was awarded the "Prix Découverte" at this major international design event for her first collections of home scents and linens. Among her creations, her sachets stood out for the originality and grace of the Mi-Septembre scent and for the masterful combination of shapes, materials and colours.

Paris, New York, Tokyo......
Mi-Septembre sachets were first carried by the Paris boutiques La Paresse en Douce and Catherine Memmi, before being discovered by the international press, leading to points of sale in New York at Barney's and in Tokyo at Printemps Ginza.

I particulary love them as they would make a perfect gift for male or female and you could use them in a variety of places including the kitchen, study, dressing area or lounge as the smell is a natural yet warm fragrance......for me they compliment Ralph Lauren's AW collection and I think that this is how the collection would "smell".

tres bon weekend à tous, Leeann x
