Women have always been part of Bentley’s history, breaking motoring records and making their mark in inimitable Bentley style. Bentley Fragrances has introduced three new scents in its exclusive Bentley Beyond collection – Radiant Osmanthus, Mellow Heliotrope and Vibrant Hibiscus – to express the character of the exceptional women who wear them.
Radiant Osmanthus represents the woman who, wherever she walks, attracts all eyes. Not because of what she does, but of what she is. Joyful, lively and giving, she lets her inner light shine through. She is a giver, not a taker. A doer and a dreamer. Her love for life burns bright.
In the top notes, sparkling mandarin and bright orange blossom match the flower’s sunny colour. The ruby flesh of blood peach make the osmanthus heart as delectable as the woman who wears it. The sweet, airy scent of wild jasmine expresses her spontaneous femininity. Light-hearted and effortlessly elegant, base notes of creamy sandalwood, white amber and musks express the sparkling charm of Radiant Osmanthus with skin-soft aromas.
The flacon and packaging uphold the same exacting standards and attention to detail as Bentley’s cars, with handstitched suede cap, faceted flacon and legendary emblem engraved on its silver metal shoulders.
Smell gorgeous this festive season with Bentley Fragrances, £165 each.
Made from stainless steel and woven with functionality in mind, the Stirrup Belt’s elastic composition allows for a perfect fit every time with easy adjustability – perfect for Christmas dinners where you might need a little more give!

Jade founded the Holland Cooper label in 2008. It has since become a classic British luxury brand for heritage and equestrian style.

With its super high-end tailoring facility, with thousands of tweed and wool garments still cut by hand and made in the traditional way, Holland Cooper delivers the finest-quality UK-produced tailored investment pieces that last a lifetime.

Made from finest Italian leather it is fully lined and comes with its own fabric dust bag.

Karen can usually be found glued to her computer or at the stables. Having edited several national magazines she co-founded Eclipse Magazine in 2008 after realising that many of her friends were nervous about going racing due to lack of information – what to wear, how to bet etc.
She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine.
If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse…!!)
