Lane Eight’s sneakers in festive colors

For the fashionista, city girl, or athlete, make a statement in these proud sneaks perfect for high-intensity training and all-day comfort. Like slipping your feet into cushy butter, the HIIT Trainer style is a versatile workout shoe that also comes in colors like earth green, light sage, rose tan, Himalyan pink, electric yellow, hyper pink, and more.

Valentino Voce Viva Intensa Perfume

Give the gift of an intoxicating scent to the powerful glamorous lady in your life as Valentino’s new feminine scent is bold and floral with bright notes of Calabrian bergamot and Mandarin Accord atop a heart of orange blossom absolute and Indian jasmine grandiflorum. At its base, vanilla perfume is twisted with a cool crystal moss accord bringing a blend of freshness and strength. 

The glamorous glass bottle reflects the light passing through the golden-hued fragrance allowing a V-shape light to emerge. Signature rock studs adorn the top and collar of the golden cap for a modern edgy elegance.

EX NIHILO’s Customizable Fragrances

For those looking for an intoxicating scent for both men and women, Parisian brand EX NIHILO has arrived in Los Angeles with a Hollywood location in the new Sycamore district. While one of our favorite smells from the French perfumery house is Fleur Narcotique, their new fragrance Idle Hour combines scent notes of bergamot, pink pepper, cedarwood, iris, tonka bean, incense, musks, akigalawood, and ylang-ylang. Idle Hour is described as alluding to the idea of memory, where time and space collapse. Designed in collaboration with LA-based artist and photographer, Amanda Charchian, the fragrance is accompanied by a collection of her photographs at the Hollywood store. Scent communicates memories.

It is also possible to customize your own fragrance here (numbered, stamped, and signed with a certificate of authenticity) in the LA store and personalize the bottle with gorgeous gold and engraved bottle caps while bottles can be laser engraved with a name, initials, date, or secret word. A gift certificate for your loved one is a special way for them to create their own signature scent. Like a science lab, the gorgeous brilliant blue location offers visitors the opportunity to smell scents filtered out of modern diffusers while candles and body care are also offered in their numerous perfume collections.

Craigellachie’s Single Malt Whiskies

Craigellachie’s latest innovation makes the perfect gift for the finicky spirits connoisseur – 13-Year Old Armagnac Cask Finish, the first expression part of its Cask Collection evokes “aromas of oozing toasted marshmallows, fire-roasted pineapples and baked apples studded with cloves, with the tang of cordite lingering in the background.”

The Craigellachie distillery lies in the Speyside region of Scotland. In the bygone era of whisky production, many distilleries cooled their spirit in worm tubs (a type of condenser). Craigellachie uses this traditional method of transferring the vapor back into a liquid for post-distillation. They find the worm tubs bestow the spirit with extra flavor helping create Craigellachie’s distinctive flavor. Sit by the fire this season and sip this robust whisky with a hint of pineapple or swirl it in an Old Fashioned.
