GROOMING by Belinda Morris
Light & Dark Desire and Lively
By Leighton Denny
Unless you happen to have your finger on the pulse of the world of fashionable, niche nail varnish, you may be unaware of Leighton Denny MBE. What you need to know is that he’s a multi-award winning figure in the nail industry, who has a wonderful way with colour and an often cheeky way with words when it comes to shade descriptions.
What we didn’t realise until fairly recently is that Mr Denny’s other passion is fragrance and he’s now turned his attention to creating his own signature, unisex scents, the first of which – Light & Dark Original – was instantly successful. He has since followed this with Original Body Wash, Body Crème and a handy Touch Up Solid EDP (£18.50. 15ml), and two more unisex fragrances.
Light & Dark Lively which opens with citrus top notes, warmed by spicy nutmeg, ginger, cardamom and pepper (lively indeed!), while Desire has a darker, woodier sensual mood thanks to the heart of amber, moss, pepper and nutmeg. The two have been created to work blended together… if you’re feeling adventurous.
