Precious oil: Moonstone, from Sage

What is it? Gorgeous range of roll-on perfume oils from Californian jewellery designer, Sage Machado. 

What’s the USP? Distinctive fragrances named after gemstones, which are tiny enough (3.7ml) to carry about and easy to apply.


Hero product? Moonstone, £30, with notes of gardenia and paperwhites (a type of narcissus), available exclusively on


How new is it? Launched in LA in 2011, and over here at the end of last year.    

I’d try…? Whichever one speaks to you most persuasively. I’m rather fond of Garnet, with its vibrant red packaging and its blend of gardenia and rose, in a base of amber, vanilla and musk.
