'Feeling free, you can achieve almost anything.'
I'd been invited by COTY to attend their fragrance launch for Davidoff- Horizon! Of course I was naturally ecstatic to have been asked, this was my first event in London, and my first fragrance launch!
The morning of the event had arrived, and immediately I felt excited, albeit slightly nervous! I'd been out the night before for a 'few drinks' in Soho, and if you follow me on Snapchat, I'm sure you'll have seen exactly what I got up to... No further comment. Anyway!
I was unsure as to what to wear as I didn't really know what to expect. So, I decided to play it safe and I wore a black turtle neck t shirt from ASOS, (I actually wore this t shirt in my latest Street Style shoot!) Some black skinny jeans and a white/cream blazer, both from Topman. I also wore my favourite pair of Jeffery West suede boots! I will be doing a new Street Style shoot featuring this outfit, so be sure to check back for that!
I'd stayed with my friend in Hampstead Heath and I needed to get over to Waterloo. I got on the tube, only to discover I was going the wrong way. You can imagine, sheer panic took over my senses as I kept checking the time and I was frantically rushing around trying to work out what line to get, Northbound or Southbound? How long will it take? What colour does that line mean? AGH! I eventually arrived (early, might I add.. Lord knows how I managed to do that!) at the National Theatre where the event took place, and I was greeted by two lovely ladies.
As we walked up to 'The Deck', I was in absolute awe of the view! 'The Deck' is at the very top of The National Theatre, and overlooks the whole of Southbank and The River Thames. The sun was shining, everybody was immaculately dressed, and the location was stunning. The first thing I saw, was the Davidoff- Horizon fragrance, so I went over to smell it and fell in love with the masculinity of the scent!
Davidoff - Horizon
- Top Notes: Grapefruit, Rosemary, Ginger.
- Middle Notes: Patchouli, Nutmeg, Cedar Wood.
- Base Notes: Cocoa Absolut, Leather Accord, Vetiver.
I'd sprayed this on my skin around 9.45am and it was still just as strong when I smelt it at 5.45pm. The longevity of this is amazing. The first initial spray is light, and refreshing. Perfect for this time of year! The dry-down started to kick in, and that's when I felt the fragrance came to life. The scent became heavier, muskier and more intriguing. Whilst the sillage of this isn't too overpowering, it can still be smelt lingering in the air, even after you've walked away.
Levison Wood gave us a talk on his experiences and who better to en-capture the spirit of this fragrance, than Levison? Everybody was transfixed on Levison as he gave his talk, and one quote he said which seemed to resonate with me was; "Sometimes in life, you don't have to have a reason for doing things. Sometimes things just happen, and things just are." At the end of the speech, I was lucky enough to have been able to have got a photograph with him! We also had all received a goody bag, inside this bag was a bottle of 125ml Davidoff - Horizon and a copy of Levison Wood- 'Walking The Himalayas.'
Overall, it was a perfect morning and one I will always remember as my first event in London! (Hopefully, not my last!) Davidoff - Horizon is available to purchase from any store and comes in 40ml (£34), 75ml (£45) and 125ml (£59). You can purchase this fragrance here.
