Our Sunglasses have polycarbonate lenses which ensure UV 400 protection; therefore your eyes are safe from both UVA and UVB Radiation. So don’t worry and go for whichever product you like. Leave rest to us!

As often as you see a new style trending! Jokes apart, experts suggest that you should replace sunglasses once every 2 years. But on a serious note again, why wait so long – there is so much to try on 😉

Do you even need to protect your eyes? If it’s a YES; then you surely need Sunglasses.

Yes, just as bad as you thought milk was for you when you were young!

However, you need to be cautious about the pair you pick because the wrong ones can lead to strained eyes, mild headaches, and eye damage.

When wearing sunglasses without polarization, the lenses only reduce the amount of light that is transmitted through the lens both horizontally and vertically. But when you choose polarized lenses, the glasses absorb horizontal light waves, while still allowing vertical waves to pass through. Therefore the light only travels in one direction through polarized lenses which then eliminates glare. However, the UV Protection remains the same.

So, the answer is YES! And you can thank us for making your road trips and boating experience better.

FAQ for Perfumes

These terms refer to the concentration of the fragrance, technically, how much high-grade alcohol
and/or water has been added to the fragrance oils. So, lesser the concentration, lesser the longevity
of smell. The classifications are as follows:
Eau de Cologne – usually 3% or less perfume oil
Eau Fraiche – 3 -5% perfume oil
Eau de Toilette – 6-12% perfume oil
Eau de Parfums – 13-18% perfume oil
Perfume or Extrait – 18-25% perfume oil

Top notes – This is the first impression of the fragrance. The feel once it has been applied to the skin. They are usually lighter, more volatile aromas that evaporate readily. This scent usually lingers for between 5 and 30 minutes.

Heart notes – It is also known as “middle tones.” These make up the body of the blend. Though they are evident from the start, they usually take 10-30 minutes to fully develop on the skin.

Base Notes – The are important as fixatives for slowing down the evaporation rates of the lighter notes, giving the fragrance holding power. They last the longest. Common base notes include oak moss, patchouli, woods, musk and vanilla.

Perfumes are supposed to be worn on the body, generally on the pulse points, e.g. inside of the wrists, back of the neck, behind the ears, etc. The warmth of the body makes the perfume blossom to the fullest. Wearing perfumes on clothes will not give the warmth of the pulse points and hence the lingering effect that is generally desired is lessened.

As Coco Chanel said, ‘Perfume is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory of fashion.’ Some people collect shoes, bags, watches and change as per occasion and mood; you can do same with your fragrance.

Expensive…? Can you really put a price on something which whisks you to that spot overlooking the Caribbean where you had the first drink, on your honeymoon…? Or conjures up the presence of a lost loved one? The price of a perfume is a reflection of the cost of the precious raw materials, and the length of time it has taken to create and develop the perfume. The skill of the perfumer – who must train for seven years, before qualifying – also has to be factored in, somewhere. The design costs for the bottle – and the bottle itself – are also contributing factors. Perfume is an art, and a craft – and we believe it is priceless. We would rather save for a beautiful new perfume than another pair of shoes, ourselves…!

All other things being equal, perfumes evaporate more rapidly from dry skin, so the best way to make fragrance last longer is to use a relatively heavy body lotion or cream. Some people like to buy the “matching” cream for their fragrance, but you can also use an unscented cream like Cetaphil, or try petroleum jelly or jojoba oil. You might also try a light mist to your hair, which is said to hold scent longer than skin.

Yes: many people use fragrance as a lift for their spirits, and there is even a name for the science behind this: ‘aromachology’. It’s been scientifically proven that different aromas can impact on mood and emotions – not just personally, but affecting those around you. Bergamot is a feel-good ingredient, peppermint makes you perkier and more alert, and grapefruit – believe it or not – makes others believe you’re younger than you are…! This is one reason so many people now have a ‘wardrobe’ of fragrances, rather than just one signature scent.

Keep all fragrances in a cool, dry area, and away from windows as sunlight can unbalance the various ingredients. An opened bottle should be kept in its box to insure a longer shelf life.

Yes, fragrances can smell differently on different people. Everyone has their own body chemistry and individual smell. A fragrance scent depends on both the condition of the skin and the individual’s diet.

You can start with a simple sniff test of the bottle first to get the main idea of what the fragrance smells like. The key, however, is to try a bit of the fragrance on your skin. This is why most department and cosmetics stores offer testers. Our skin has its own unique code of hormones and pheromones that can slightly or even extremely alter the way a fragrance smells. It is a good idea to spray a small amount on your wrists, wait a few moments, and then smell the scent on your skin.
