Jewelry, perfumes and love

Winters of the Soul is the book that has been talked about a lot in the last month.

Sometimes it is enough to slip from the usual course of life to have a feeling of dislocation and loneliness: an unexpected illness, the loss of a loved one, a breakup, problems at work. When her husband fell ill and she had to give up a very demanding job, Katherine May found herself thrown into an ocean of uncertainty and isolation. This book is a testament to the way he managed to overcome the difficult moments and learned to look at them rather as chances to develop. The incredible transformations that nature goes through during the winter to survive the cold served the author as sources of inspiration, giving her the strength to continue.

Using examples from literature, mythology or the natural world, Winters of the Soul gathers a series of inspiring lessons about the liberating power of rest and retreat.

Katherine May invites us to accept sadness by withdrawing from the hectic world, to discover the joy that exists in the passing beauty of winter, to understand life as a cyclical phenomenon, not as a continuous line. And her wonderful memoir, which has captivated readers around the world, teaches us to simply embrace the winters in our lives.

Minnie Cooper and Quinn Hamilton were born in the same hospital on New Year’s Eve, but Quinn received the grand prize for “first born” in London in 1990. With such bad luck, it’s no wonder that every birthday Minnie’s turned out to be a small disaster.

When he meets Quinn again years later, at a New Year’s party, he discovers that he has become a charming and successful businessman, while she is about to lose her company and home. If they are so different, why does each chance encounter disturb them and make them want more?

Mademoiselle Coco and the scent of love. We might think it’s another story about Coco Chanel. And she is, but Coco Chanel is a woman who has changed the fashion world, so there will probably never be too many stories. In 1919, Coco Chanel was already the embodiment of elegance for any modern woman. Forget the years of poverty, when it was only Gabrielle, the orphan abandoned in the convent by the nuns, then the poor girl who was forbidden to marry the aristocrat she had fallen in love with. After the brutal and tragic loss of the love of her life, Coco goes through a terrible existential crisis. Neither her friends nor her work can get her out of her deep sadness. This is until, during a trip to Venice, she is enchanted by a special scent, which she wants to transform into the most intoxicating perfume of love.

Although Coco knows nothing about the art of great perfumers, she will dedicate her body and soul to this daring adventure, to create a unique product, an eternal homage to the man she lost. This is how the story of the most famous and beloved perfume in the world begins: Chanel No 5.

The author painstakingly and carefully paints a portrait of each of those who played a huge role in founding, developing and evolving a House, where everyone – employees and owners – felt like in a big family. Basically, this book is a new Cartier gem!
