Odette Lingerie VIP Christmas Event
It was the perfect antidote to a chilly autumn day. Creamy cocktails dripping of chocolate and salted caramel, an aromatic assortment of scents alternating between masculine and feminine notes and an intimate apparel muse on nearly every wall. This tantalizing trilogy was on offer at the Odette Lingerie VIP Christmas Event on November 21, 2018.
The invitation only occasion unfolded at the home of Odette Lingerie – a charming two-tier boutique in the lovely environs of Old Amersham, just on the outskirts of London.
Led by lingerie connoisseur, Liz Brighton, Odette Lingerie was established two years ago and boasts an international itinerary of luxurious brands including Wacoal, Empreinte, Stella McCartney, Chantal Thomass, Simone Pérèle and one of the boutique’s flagship brands, Aubade, which is celebrating 60 years in the industry this year.
According to boutique owner Liz, her Christmas event was fashioned with two main purposes in mind.
“It’s really just our way of saying thank you to our VIP customers for their continued loyalty and support and to showcase our Christmas collections,” she informed.
Guests were greeted with a choice of delicious chocolate infused cocktails and then ushered upstairs where a sensuous voyage awaited with master perfumer, Ruth Mastenbroek. Whilst offering the gathering samples of citrus, earthy and floral aromas on which to ponder and enjoy, Ruth, a classically trained perfumer and business woman, piloted a romantic journey across the globe as she indulged and educated listeners in the art, history, science and production of perfume and scents.
It was simply captivating and made even more thrilling when invitees were spritzed with Ruth’s own fragrances from her collection which includes Signature, Firedance, Amorosa and crowd pleaser, Oxford – each of which carries a personal life story for Ruth.
And, as if cocktails and perfume were not enough to entice a girl on a cold autumn day, the afternoon reached utopia when patrons were given the opportunity to peruse and purchase pieces from Odette’s current Christmas collections.
Spread across two floors, Odette Lingerie collections include lingerie, swimwear, lounge, resort and active wear. Add-ons like hats, dressing up solutions and fragrances are also available to complement an intimate apparel purchase.
“…the afternoon reached utopia when patrons were given the opportunity to peruse and purchase pieces from Odette’s current Christmas collections.”
Many colours in the boutique reflected the mood of the season – robust reds, icy blues, deep navy, teal, rich purple, copper and florals with the ideal autumnal impression. Apparel choices range from smooth, everyday, discreet pieces to those that any woman would want to be seen in, especially for that boudoir rendezvous, such as seductive chemises and gorgeous robes for layering.
With a trained lingerie fitter available to assist, guests were permitted to try current collections in the boutique’s wonderfully spacious fitting rooms and savour the Odette Lingerie customer experience in tastefully furnished surroundings.
And if purchasing lingerie was not on the agenda that afternoon, there was still much on offer for guests in generous goodie bags. Ruth Mastenbroek’s Discovery Set with trials of her fragrances, a double selection of Aubade nail polish and, for pink glossy lips, Light Me Up High Shine Lip Gloss from MeMeMe, were amongst the little indulgences stashed in a beautiful Odette Lingerie shopping bag. And what perfect treats just in time for the holidays.
