You can tell it’s almost Christmas as there are perfume launches coming out of our ears. Everybody wants a piece of the fragrance action and supermodel Linda Evangelista is no exception. Linda is the face of the new Aura Loewe scent, a sophisticated and elegant Eau De Parfum with a 1920’s inspired bottle. Brought to you from the quintessentially Spanish luxury brand Loewe, established in 1846, Aura Loewe is a floral, woody scent with fresh, spicy top notes
highlighted by hints of Pink Pepper and Redcurrant; the strong floral
heart of Rose Otto and Jasmine complements the woody Sandalwood,
and leather base notes perfectly. This isn’t a scent for the feign-hearted (and I can definitely imagine a sophisticated Spanish woman wearing this around the city of Barcelona,) but it’s certainly unique and striking. Loewe say: “This new creation embodies the values of a company that witness today the birth of its new femininity. A femininity that boasts the most mysterious and addictive facet of art, inspired by the magnetism of the Muses and that ‘something’ that makes them unique. The muse: Linda Evangelista. Thanks to her magnetism, Linda clearly conveys the magic that surrounds the new Aura Loewe Eau de Parfum. No one knows what it is or what shape it has. It is a glance, a gesture, a smile. Pure magnetism. Either you have it or you don’t.”
Linda is certainly the embodiment of the Aura Loewe fragrance, as you can see in the teaser video above. You can buy the fragrance online or in Harrods for £73.00 (80ml), but in the meantime Linda has exclusively shared her top beauty tips with me so you can channel your inner supermodel too.
To start the day well you need…
A good few quick stretches and yerba mate chai tea.
Do you have a tip for looking good?
Describe your usual beauty routine.
I exfoliate every other day. I play with so many creams and potions and pile on my sunscreens. In winter I use Retinol A every other night.
Do you practise any sport or go to the gym?
My trainer comes to my home. We do a different routine everyday so I don’t get bored. I have a rowing machine, mini trampoline, power plate, spinning bike, and many weights, kettle bells, step, elastic resistance bands, some boxing stuff, bosu and a medicine ball. He keeps me moving for an hour, throwing in 3 minutes of cardio intervals.

Sunscreen every day, including during winter.
What products have you got in your makeup bag?
Many kinds of lip gloss, lip pencil, mascara, blush and compact mineral powder foundation.

Aura Loewe, it is so floral and feminine fragrance. I do love it! I also love mixing different scented oils together.

Apply it front of a window with a good mirror .
How do you care for your hair?
I have been using Hamadi Organic Shea cream in my hair for years and years.
