Today’s giveaway is a decidedly feminine scent from Lanvin, and designed by acclaimed Israeli designer, Alber Elbaz. Created with the sophisticated woman in mind, this floral fragrance has a subtle sensuality in its notes that’s intoxicating.

Notes of Lanvin Me:
Top Notes: Mandarin, Blueberry
Middle Notes: Tuberose, Rose Absolue
Base Notes: Licorice Black Wood, Sandalwood

Our take on Lanvin Me:
1. The rich notes blend seamlessly together to produce an almost cream-like scent.
2. The beautifully designed bottle – with its heavy glass, gold chain and blue-toned gemstone – will stand out on any vanity table.
3. Women who love sweet-smelling perfumes will love the syrupy scents of the blueberry and licorice notes.
4. Its bright, fruity notes make it a great scent for daytime wear.
5. The fragrance sits on your skin for several hours, which means you don’t have to keep re-spritzing throughout the day.

Most suited for:
Your independent, free-spirited friend who’s always been known to “march to the beat of her own drum”. She will love the uniqueness of the blueberry and licorice notes.

So win this bottle of Lanvin Me for your friend!

[Contest] Win This Lancome Hypnose Show By Alber Elbaz Set!

So on Saturday the Material World team was invited to the launch of Lancome Hypnose Show by Alber Elbaz. The backstage was a hive of activity with nine renowned makeup artists creating looks centered around the limited edition mascaras and eye makeup by the Israeli fashion designer for Lanvin. Watch the video here:

Here are two of our favourite looks:

Dollei Seah with her model. Her look – she said – was inspired by the cute-beyond-words packaging of the mascaras. She hand-painted on the face tattoos one by one.


Grego with his model. He was inspired by superheroes because (in his words) he said, “Beauty can save the world!” We are loving the badges he used as hair accessories!


Today, we have a special treat just for Material World readers!

We have – up for grabs – the following:


1. A super-special and rare Lancome Hypnose Show by Alber Elbaz pop-up book worth $200

2. Three mascaras sporting the limited edition packaging – Hypnose Waterproof, Hypnose Doll Eyes Waterproof, and Hypnose Star Waterproof. These mascaras contain a darker pigment than the usual Hypnose range so you’ll get darker, more glamorous eyelashes!
