Asali Leather Laptop Case
Delivering a fusion of luxury leather craftsmanship with a passion for aviation heritage, ASALI was born when founder Mindy Arora attended air shows with her husband, an esteemed RAF fighter pilot, and spotted a gap in the market for high end luxury goods for the aviation avid. Asali products are loved and used by elite RAF pilots and well-known names alike, with famous fans including Phillip Schofield and Carol Vorderman. Made to fit a 13–14 inch laptop, their new range of cases have a thicker lining and handle for added comfort – for you and your case. Made from genuine leather, the orange colour theme is fabulous. The handmade nature means that the variations in colour and finish are natural, without deviating from the highest quality. The bright orange continues inside the case with a distinctive trim for the inside pocket and ASALI label. We would team this lovely laptop bag with the ‘Love ASALI’ orange cardholder.

Art de Parfum
Art de Parfum is a great Easter gift that allows you to travel and start your fragrance journey through evocative and uplifting scents such as Sea Foam and Encore Une Fois. Sea Foam is an uplifting scent which brings back all those familiar feelings of happiness and pure liberation when we see and smell the sea. Sea Foam is rich in natural oils, essences, and absolutes. The Limited Edition Scent Encore Une Fois uses nature’s most precious oils and absolutes to evoke the sea, but in a much more sensual way. Art de Parfum has been passionately creating unisex, clean fragrances since their inception in 2015. Their fragrances are 100% made in France by perfumers in Grasse.
According to experts, the fragrances that we wear should change with the seasons. Spring and summer scents tend to be fruity and lighter; they can last longer and aren’t as overwhelming as a perfume more associated with the colder seasons. Something that we think is perfect for wearing any time is Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. This is an explosive, sophisticated fragrance in a stylish bottle shaped like a multi-faceted diamond – with tea, fresh lime and a sweet floral trail of jasmine, rose, freesia and Cattleya orchid on a lingering base of musk and patchouli. Flowerbomb will ensure you leave a trail of allure wherever you go. For men, Paco Rabanne Invictus Intense is an aftershave for a champion, with top notes of black pepper and orange blossom giving way to laurel and whisky. This conquering hero is warmer than the original fragrance with amber and leather tones, making Invictus Intense stronger and sexier than ever.
