A Wardrobe Full of Clothes and Nothing to Wear!

Elk has done it again and delivered a gorgeous range of beautiful soft silk scarves to help you solve your wardrobe crisis. An inexpensive alternative to purchasing an entirely new outfit. Your old blue jeans, boots and T-shirt will be transformed into a unique and sophisticated outfit with the addition of one of these.

I'm adding these to my Mother's Day Wishlist for sure. Visit Quintessence for a wide range of beautiful accessories!

All I Want for Mother's Day Is

A hot cup of tea served in bed in a gorgeous Limoge tea cup...

Or maybe a new Mywallit wallet in fabulous bright fuscia, purple and orange.....

A cute Louenhide Beetle bag in Mocha which would go with just about everything I own.....
A triple scented glasshouse candle to make the entire house smell divine!

Just about anything from the Quintessence jewelry counter which is bursting with treasures that would make any mum so happy.

Oh and a nap on the sofa snuggled up with one of these gorgeous angora and lamb's wool Bemboka throws.

Who could wish for more?

Enquire about our wish list program in our Northbridge and Lindfield stores. After all its your day this Sunday and you deserve to be spoilt!

Candle Candle Burning Bright

Everyone has those moments when they would love to purhcase a gift for someone, but it is so difficult to find just the right thing. People's homes are so often finely tuned to the owner's very personal taste and style which makes purchasing for them quite tricky.

For me, the perfect solution is to give a beautifully scented candle. For the same price as a good box of chocolates (which nobody needs right now), you can chose from our extensive range of fragranced candles which we will of course beautifully gift wrap for you making a perfect hostess gift.

We are extremely fortunate to have received stock of the Glasshouse Very Limited Edition Versailles candles. The packaging is truly amazing and the mercury finish on the glass is simply stunning. What mum would not be thrilled to receive something like this for Mother's Day?

Sydney Style

There is nothing more lovely for us as Sydney girls, than to support other Sydney girls who develop beautiful products. Some of our most popular pieces in our Quintessence range are the creations of great young Aussie women who dreamed a dream and developed their products to perfection.

We have always loved Louenhide products. Their bags are luxurious yet very affordable and come in a myriad of colours.
I love the size and practicality of the Switch bag pictured below. The colours range from kelly green, to yellows, reds and blues.
The new Portage bag is just so sophisticated. Perfect to take to work or to use as a travel bag. Large enough to fit a 15 inch laptop comfortably. The pale blue colour is just about my favourite colour on Earth, so I am placing this on my "Mother's Day Wish List" for sure (more about that later).

I couldn't quite wait for mother's day to sneak a little Louenhide Charchi Eel cuff into my shopping. The orange is my favourite, but the cream is on my Wish List!
At a recent trade show, we were pretty much bowled over by the new designs of Sydney Designers Arlington Milne. We were pretty quick to snap up a wide range of their gorgeous leather goods and travel goods. As soft as butter and seriously so beautiful, we know these will just walk out the door. One of the gorgeous owners came into the store the other day clutching a 9 month old wallet. It was great to see that it looked brand new. The quality of the leather and craftsmanship is just superb.

These products are available at our Lindfield and Northbridge stores. Stop by and say hello!

Autumn Elk

We are very excited to introduce the Quintessence Sydney blog. A place where you can visit often as you take a break from life and read up on all the gorgeousness that we promise to bring to you in our two beautiful Sydney stores.

On Thursday we received our Elk winter range. It is all just so gorgeous that we went a little wild with our staff purchases and had to re-order!!!!

This chunky poncho is a definite winner and comes in a divine smokey brown also. Pull this on with some comfy cosy leggings and some trusty chunky boots and Voila! you are set for cool autumn walks and snuggling in front of the fire with the papers on Sundays.

Beautiful winter wood necklaces. So unique and impactful. This little sister also comes in red and navy. LOVE!!!!! With the grey poncho sweater, just so perfect!

Just another little pic of the chunky poncho. Just because it's just so luxe and I'm in love with it.
