The Ruinart Champagne House is pleased to present the Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2009. With the Dom Ruinart, the House crowns the best harvests and celebrates Chardonnay, the emblematic grape of the House.

This exceptional vintage was first presented in 1959. Since then, it has only been produced 26 times, as a Dom Ruinart is only created in exceptional years. The Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2009 follows on from the last blend of 2007 and pays tribute to the 50 years of this prestigious cuvée.

The Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2009 combines richness and liveliness. Crunchy fruit notes mixed with notes of white flowers and fresh marzipan characterize this complex, tasty and elegant vintage. The silky acidity, the freshness of stone fruit and its surprising juiciness delight the palate. The final touch, meanwhile, is subtle and long.

The sunny flavors and intense freshness of this vintage offer many possibilities for gastronomic pairings, whether it's scallops, sea bass fillet with risotto, burrata or guinea fowl.

The Dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs 2009 is available from February 2021 at Globus.

With a company history of 260 years, Faber-Castell is one of the oldest industrial companies in the world currently run by the 9th generation. The current company name originated in 1898 when the then heiress, Freiin Ottilie von Faber, married Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen. While the focus was on the production of pencils in 1761, the traditional company today offers a broad portfolio of high-quality products in the areas of "writing, drawing and creative design".

To mark the anniversary, Graf von Faber-Castell is presenting an exclusive interpretation of the perfect pencil - the classic that can write, sharpen and erase. The pencil is deep black, the PVD coating of its metal parts is anthracite-colored. The cap is decorated with engraved stylized pencils and an artfully faceted jade stone shines in the cap head.
In Far Eastern mythology, the green shimmering gemstone stands for both lived tradition and a promising future - which I wish you from the bottom of my heart!

LALIQUE: Les Compositions Parfumées

House of Lalique presents the perfect complement to its exclusive collections of perfumery, jewellery and crystalmaking, with three high-quality candles inspired by three scents from the range. Each candle is offered in a sleek glass bearing the gold Lalique logo, matte white on the outside, with the inside matching the colour of the wax: berry purple for Electric Purple, candy pink for Pink Paradise, honeyed amber for Sweet Amber.

Electric Purple: Brighten your mood by lighting the violet wax of the Electric Purple candle. Against the vibrant green of mint and violet leaves, the mouth-watering boysenberry note, captured through the cutting-edge NaturePrint® technology, is so realistic you can almost taste the purple fruit. Boosted by musk, this high-contrast electric accord rests on a bed of moss and patchouli.

Pink Paradise: Let yourself drift on the fluffy cloud of musk with the rosy wax of Pink Paradise, carried by a soft sea breeze scented with sweet, vanilla and almond-scented heliotrope and heady jasmine. Close your eyes: you’re transported the pepper-black sand of an exotic island beach, lazing in a sunbeam of juicy citrus on a bed of silky sandalwood. The air is alive with vibrant Iso E Super. 

Sweet Amber: Turn your home into a huge, exuberant bouquet of white flowers – jasmine sambac, tuberose, orange blossom – by burning the golden wax of Sweet Amber… And indulge your sweet tooth with luscious vanilla, lifted by a teasing lick of anise. Galaxolide, a clean, soft musk that lifts the floral notes, turns them into a whirlwind of delicious petals. As airy as a perfect meringue. And just as irresistible. 

I have had the chance to try all three candles and I really like all three of them, my favourite surely is Pink Paradise.  Such a gorgeous colour and I love the creamy, woody facets..truly heavenly!

Harmonize your home fragrance with your signature perfume. Burn them bright to reflect different moods or occasions. Les Compositions Parfumées candles will scent your world with color and emotion.
