Guerlain Lipstick Cases and Longines Watches Are on MONTECRISTO’s February Wishlist

Grand Marnier Grande Cuvée Quintessence

Crafted from the rarest and oldest Grand Marnier reserves, Grande Cuvée Quintessence is a spirit made from Bigaradia orange peels macerated in Hors D’âge cognacs and double distilled to produce a refined scent and taste. Evocative of fruits, florals, almond, and vanilla, the liqueur arrives housed in a crystal decanter handmade by Maison Baccarat, with the base of the bottle sitting cradled in a crystal podium. There are just 2,000 bottles available worldwide, and only 20 in Canada.

Longines Flagship Heritage Year of the Dragon Watch

To celebrate the Year of the Dragon in 2024, Longines is introducing a special edition of its Flagship Heritage moonphase timepiece in collaboration with Chinese artist Zinan Lam. Featuring a design of a dragon—considered an auspicious symbol in the Chinese zodiac—on the case back, the new watch symbolizes well-being and the eternal cycle of life. Only 888 are available.

Chanel Chance Hand Cream Collection

Spring has sprung with Chanel’s new limited-edition Chance perfumed hand creams, packaged in travel-ready tubes. The three delicately scented formulas include Chance, a floral-spicy scent redolent of pink peppercorn, jasmine, and amber patchouli; Chance Eau Tendre, where a fruity grapefruit-quince accord meets soft jasmine and smooth white musk; and Chance Eau Fraîche, mixing zesty citron and soft jasmine with a masculine note of teak wood.

Cloudtilt Loewe Runner

With this year’s Designer of the Year award under his belt—as creative director of both the LVMH-owned Loewe and his eponymous label, JW Anderson—you’d think this fashion wunderkind wouldn’t have the time or the energy for more collaborations. But the celebrated Northern Ireland-born Jonathan Anderson has teamed up with Swiss-based On for Cloudtilt Loewe, his second limited-edition drop with the technical shoe brand. It’s On’s first lifestyle kick to incorporate computer-generated midsole technology, for a smoother run, while an outer sole crafted from EVA foam minimizes the use of rubber. An engineered mesh upper made from 100 per cent recycled polyester keeps sustainability at the forefront. The women’s Cloudtilt collection launched in October, and the men’s hit shelves last month.

Guerlain Rouge G Cherry Bloom Case Case

To celebrate the beauty of blooming sakura, Japan’s magnificent cherry trees, the House of Guerlain has unveiled a limited-edition Cherry Bloom Case for its iconic Rouge G lipstick. Designed by jeweller Lorentz Baumer in collaboration with Japanese artist Ryo Shinagawa, the double-mirrored, refillable case serves as a canvas for delicate pink petals set on shimmery gold.

Designers Guild Spring 2024 Ghirlanda Collection

In the Spring 2024 Ghirlanda collection, Tricia Guild—iconic British designer and founder of Designers Guild—finds kaleidoscopic inspiration in the Renaissance gardens of Florence. Featuring richly embroidered cushions named after the muses of the Boboli Gardens (Eleonora de Medici and her daughter, Isabella), the collection runs the gamut from wallpaper to vibrant throws, all with the vibe of a garden party come to life.

Oribe Gift Sets

To mark the Year of the Dragon, Oribe introduces two luxurious limited-edition gift sets. Designed in collaboration with Australian-Chinese artist Chris Chun, each set showcases vibrant peony roses in rich jewel tones—including red and gold, to signify prosperity—intertwined with dancing green wood dragons, the Chinese zodiac’s most powerful sign.

The Magnificent Volume Collection includes shampoo, conditioner, and Maximista thickening spray, to cleanse, condition, protect, and thicken your tresses. The Hair Alchemy Liter Set includes Resilience shampoo and conditioner, to strengthen hair from the roots while adding moisture to further protect strands from the ravages of dry winter weather.

Voglio Bene Home Décor

Part street art, part art history, Voglio Bene’s line of home décor was conceived by French photographers Pascal and Bénédicte Piccolillo, who find inspiration in both urban art and paintings by the Old Masters. From wall hangings to fridge decals, each piece remixes classical tableaux into modern home décor that’s bold and beautiful, with just a hint of gothic flair. Available at Fino Lino.

Drunk Elephant Bora Barrier Repair Cream

While many clean skin-care brands avoid phthalates, parabens, and other harmful ingredients, Drunk Elephant takes it a step further and bans even natural fragrances from their formulations. The brand recently launched Bora Barrier Repair Cream, a buttery, ultra-rich lotion designed to restore a healthy skin barrier while offering 24-hour moisture thanks to zinc and copper minerals, along with alpha glucan, a rice derivative.

Lush Spa on Robson

Of the almost 900 Lush stores in 52 countries, only 19 have spas, and a mere two of those are in North America—one on Lexington Avenue in New York City, and the other in Vancouver, which opened its doors in January. While the New York location offers just four of the 11 treatments typically available, Vancouver’s swish new digs on Robson Street boast the full complement of massages, facials, scalp scrubs, foot rubs—and a fully immersive bath experience in a room walled in grass.

Each treatment is personalized. For the 80-minute Synaesthesia massage, the client starts by choosing from a chalkboard a word that resonates personally (courage, resilience, empowerment, etc.), then the therapist selects specific ingredients and scents that elicit that word through the five senses. A 52-piece orchestra was commissioned to create a soundtrack for the experience.

Sorel Caribou x Boot Chelsea Cozy

Sorel first got its footing in 1962, introduced as a line of winter sports and work boots crafted by the Kaufman Rubber Company in Kitchener, Ontario. Long known for its hardy footwear that can withstand a Canadian winter, the cult-fave label has evolved to include fashion-forward options such as the Caribou x Boot Chelsea Cozy. Combining a waterproof patent leather upper with faux shearling and a rubber sole, the stylish boot offers a modern take on the classic Chelsea silhouette.

EvolveX Transform at Pacific Plastic Surgery

If you need some help with your New Year’s body-transformation goals, turn to Vancouver’s Pacific Plastic Surgery for the new EvolveX Transform non-surgical body-contouring treatment. It’s designed to build muscle while eliminating stubborn fat. Through electrical muscle stimulation technology, powerful muscle contractions are induced, which sculpt and define specific muscle groups (abdomen, waist, arms, thighs, buttocks). Combined with advanced radiofrequency energy—which delivers controlled thermal heat to the tissue that heats up and then breaks down fat cells—the treatment results in slimmer, more toned areas in a fraction of the time required for similar results at the gym.

Herschel Novel Duffle

Avoid the hassle of checking a bag with Herschel’s Novel Duffle in a new carry-on size, which makes packing a breeze. Equipped with a padded laptop sleeve and a removable trolley strap, the compact bag has vegan leather handles, is made from 100 per cent recycled materials, and comes with a removable shoulder strap.

Lululemon Lunar New Year Wunder Puff Cropped Vest

Celebrate the Year of the Dragon in Lululemon’s Lunar New Year Wunder Puff Cropped Vest. Water-repellent, windproof, and cinchable (to keep out February’s cold drafts), the bright-red insulated vest is filled with certified down and features recycled polyester material made from repurposed plastic waste.
