Shay and Blue London are a boutique perfumery who are passionate about creating unique fragrances.
Their fragrances are crafted using real flowers, fruits and spices with traditional techniques, resulting in scents that are noble and have depth, unlike those mass-produced in factories.
Each Shay and Blue fragrance tells a story and allows you to enter a world of dreams.
We ask Jaki, Kiana Beauty's fragrance aficionado, to describe each scent in her own words and tell us what she feels when she smells each Shay and Blue fragrance.
Why don't you join Jaki on this journey?

The new scent of Australia: Kiana Beauty welcomes Goldfield & Banks Australia and speaks to Dimitri Weber, its founder.
Our Kiana Beauty team are constantly on the lookout for exciting new brands to bring to you. With so many brands in the beauty space, it can be difficult to find something that really stands out from the crowd.
One of our loyal customers, Kate, is a perfume aficionado, and when she told us about a new fragrance brand called Goldfield & Banks Australia, our ears pricked up. Once we looked into it, we were truly excited. And after we met with Dimitri Weber, the founder of Goldfield & Banks Australia, we knew we just had to have it!
Goldfield & Banks Australia is a luxury perfume company that celebrates the unrelenting spirit of Australia. Dimitri is a Belgian-French native who moved to Australia and was surprised that there were no luxury Australian fragrances being made here with all our quality natural essences. So using his extensive knowledge and experience in French fragrances, he created this distinctive and sophisticated range.
We spoke to Dimitri to find out why he loves fragrances so much, and what makes Goldfield & Banks Australia so special.
Dimitri Weber, founder of Goldfield & Banks Australia
Hi Dimitri. We are genuinely excited to be stocking your baby, the Goldfield & Banks Australia fragrances.
Firstly, could you tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Born from a Flemish mother and French father, I lived most of my life in Belgium and France. Since I was a little boy, I would always choose the fragrances of my mum and later of my school teachers, friends and professionals.
I was lucky to start my career working at YSL in the mid 90s, and after this beautiful experience, I have worked with Narciso Rodriguez and Issey Miyake fragrances where I have learned everything about the world of fragrances and the art of creating.
I have been a brand ambassador and organise trainings, press conferences and consult for many brands such as Tom Ford, Cartier and L’Oréal Prestige.
Fragrances can make you travel and can take you on a journey. I like the creativity in developing fragrances and the level of excellence it requires.
I like the rigorous work and discipline that goes along with creating that results in a perfect perfume, packaging and environment. Everything needs to be consistent and it’s that part, the striving for the best, that I love about fragrances.
It’s part of the journey and then you make people dream because everything fits so perfectly.
Legend has it that sandalwood, which is an iconic Australian native ingredient, grows on fields of gold.
I was surprised when moving to Australia that there wasn’t any luxury perfume available made in Australia and featuring native essences.
So I started discovering all the essences and richness this country possesses, and little by little, I started creating Goldfield & Banks Australia which pays tribute to the extraordinary beauty of Australia and its botanical kingdom.
The brand also pays tribute to the noble Joseph Banks, the first botanist.
We are in love with your distinctive packaging. Tell us a little about how it came about and what it represents.
The bottles represent a sunny and bright day in Australia, ocean blue, forest green, sand dunes, the outback.
The wooden cap debossed with the logo is timber and reflects a smouldering piece of wood after a bushfire.
The ring is in gold and represents the gold mining history of Western Australia, and the edges of the labels on the bottles reflect the edges of the Banksia leaves.
All women and men who are Australia lovers, and are seduced by the confidential niche culture.
All people who value a good quality fragrance with unique essences locally crafted, but that equals the French quality and expertise.
Goldfield & Banks is for a discerning customer who will wear this fragrance for pleasure.
Try your fragrance always on the skin. Try it in an outside area, in open air so you will have a more objective result.
Give yourself a couple of seconds for the alcohol to evaporate and discover the fragrance step by step.
Goldfield & Banks Australia fragrances all have a Sunrise, a Summit and a Sunset, and like any day, it takes a few hours to evolve.
And finally, ask your partner if he or she loves the fragrance as you might want to share it!
We would like to extend a warm thank you to Dimitri for taking the time to chat with us, and also for creating such luxurious and high quality fragrances that represent Australia and all its natural gorgeousness.
You can view the entire collection of Goldfield & Banks Australia natural perfumes here, all available online now at Kiana Beauty Melbourne. We are proud to offer free standard shipping within Australia for all orders over $50, and free signature gift wrapping on all products.
If you've got a question about Goldfield & Banks Australia, or any of our other brands, Ask an Expert here or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and one of our team will get back to you.
I'm not exaggerating when I say our Kiana Beauty team leader, Jaki, has a passion for fragrances.
Jaki is someone who actually understands terms such as “dry down”, “vetiver” and “smouldery”.
She knows all the classic scents, but is also genuinely excited when the fragrance houses release new perfumes for women and men.
Jaki shares with us some of her favourite fragrances for men, just in time for Valentine's Day.
Fresh and aquatic, with a stronger woody base, and a touch of pepper.
Try this if you love the original cult classic Acqua di Gio.
Giorgio Armani Code Profumo
Eau de Parfum Sprayfrom $140.00
Simply stunning. Fresh and zesty to start, then warm and musky.
One of my personal favourites.
Versace Dylan Blue
Eau de Toilette Sprayfrom $65.00
Versace do great statement fragrances and this is no exception.
It has a slight hint of pepper and the allure of incense combine to create a fragrance smells unique on each individual.
Guerlain L'Homme Idéal
Eau de Parfumfrom $98.00
The latest and much anticipated fragrance from Guerlain is bold and strong, but warm with vanilla and leather.
It's masculine, luxurious and elegant.
Created using real, quality ingredients (nothing manufactured!), Shay & Blue London are a boutique perfumery who create fragrances unlike any others.
This is a full-bodied fragrance with chocolate, leather, patchouli and smokey woods.
Fresh and herbaceous with lavender, ginger, bitter orange, and a base of leather and vetiver.
Again, Trussardi are a family of superior quality goods and their fragrances are just outstanding.
Have a question? Ask away via our Ask An Expert page, or send us an email to hello@kianabeautymelbourne , and Jaki or one of our team members will be happy to help.
Jaki is not only our dedicated, inspiring and super hard-working team leader, she also has a passion for perfumes, with an incredible amount of knowledge crammed into that brain of hers.
With Valentine's Day round the corner, Jaki shares with us her current favourite scents for women.
Asking me to select my favourite fragrances is like asking me to choose my favourite son - I just can't do it!
As much as I love fragrances in general, I do have my go-to fragrances, chosen according to my mood, my outfit and colours.
I love that fragrance evokes emotions that are open to interpretation and these can be different for everyone.
Scents can take to you faraway places, both emotionally and physically.
Some are safe, some are polarising, some remind us of other fragrances, and some totally unique and haunting.
When choosing a fragrance, my advice is to drink in the notes of the ingredients.
Visualise. Dream. Envelop yourself in the fragrance and the story and mood behind their creation.
Once upon a time, fragrance was a real luxury item, but now there are fragrances to suit every budget. Everyone can enjoy them, wear them liberally and build a wardrobe of fragrances for every occasion, emotion or dream.
Why not treat yourself and add in just one or two unique perfumes to complete your outfit for those times you want to feel special?
I've included ten of my current favourite perfumes for women, although I'm sure if you ask me again in six months, the list will change.
And if you have any questions about fragrances for women or men, or any of our other Kiana Beauty products, I would love to help. Just contact me here or send an email to us at email@example.com.
Fresh and shimmering.
Dior Hypnotic Poison
Eau de Parfumfrom $165.00
Mysterious, forbidden fruit.
Surprising, lingering, subtle waft.
Bold and sensual.
Nostalgic, yet fresh.
Marc Jacobs Decadence
Eau de Parfum Sprayfrom $100.00
Paco Rabanne Olympea
Eau de Parfum Sprayfrom $81.00
Heroic, strong, unconquerable, determined, yet soft and feminine.
So this Valentine's Day, and throughout the year, take a look at the fragrances available from Kiana Beauty Melbourne.
And our beauty experts such as Jaki, love helping people find the perfect perfume.
Gentlemen...what's your shaving style?
Do you go for the popular yet classic smooth-all-over look?
Perhaps just sideburns?
A manicured moustache?
Are you a bearded hipster?
So many options and so many ways to express your personality through facial hair.
But regardless of your final look, all men of a certain age have to shave. Given the fact that over your lifetime you will literally spend hundreds, if not thousands, of hours shaving, isn't it worth doing it right?
Chanel has just released some new shaving products as part of its timeless Bleu de Chanel range which will leave your face looking great, feeling smooth and smelling like a man who knows exactly where he's headed in life.

Read on to learn more about the best way to shave in style using the wet shave method.
The best time to shave is straight after a hot shower or bath as your skin will be clean as well as soft, making a close shave even easier.
No time for a shower? Just wet your face with warm water before shaving.
Shaving creams help soften the skin, prevent razor burn and reduce irritation and those nasty shaving nicks. They also give you guidance to the areas you have already shaved or may have missed.
When using the Bleu de Chanel Shaving Cream, wet your face with warm water and apply the shaving cream in a circular motion before shaving. Afterwards, rinse off with cold water.
Shaving in the direction of hair growth reduces irritation to your facial skin and means you're less likely to get ingrown hairs. So go with the flow and your skin will thank you.
We all have those mornings when we've pressed the snooze button one too many times, but allowing yourself time to shave properly without being rushed means you'll end up with a better shave and less chance of unwanted shaving accidents.
We also recommend that you take the time to rinse your blade between each stroke to prevent hair clogging up the blades and either catching on your skin or leaving missed patches of facial hair.
Bleu de Chanel Hydrating After Shave Gel not only soothes the skin, but also provides a welcome burst of moisture.
It melts straight into the skin leaving it feeling fresh and comfortable.
Finish your shaving ritual with your favourite fragrance and head out to start your day.
By layering your scent with a matching cologne like the timeless and powerful Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum Pour Homme Spray, the layers of fragrance will sit together and create an intensity that will take you right through your day.
All our Chanel products will be gift wrapped in signature Chanel wrapping, ready to give to someone special, or just as a treat for yourself.
We can also pop in a personalised handwritten note if you're sending a gift, just leave your message in the 'comments' section at checkout.
What a perfect idea for Father's Day!
Got a question? Let us know via our Ask an Expert page and someone from our team will get back to you as soon as we can.
Winter has only just descended up on us and it has the team at Kiana Beauty divided. While some of our team are migrating to warmer climates for a well-earned holiday, the rest are loving the opportunity to layer up with scarves and shake up their makeup routine with a warmer palette.
One thing we all agree on is that the combination of cold, wind and central heating can wreak havoc on our skin, leaving it dry and chapped.
Here are some of the new products to provide a little extra TLC to your skin through the cooler weather.
When you think of cult beauty products, Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair is right up there.
The range has now gone beyond serums with the addition of cleansers.
The new Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm transforms from a balm into a silky cleansing oil then transforms again to a milky emulsion once rinsed with water.
Gentle enough to use everyday, your skin will look and feel clean and conditioned.
Does anyone else have dry, chapped lips at the moment?
Those scientists at the Clinique laboratories have been working overtime to come up with the latest product targeting dry lips.
Clinique Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub and Lip Balm is a 2-in-1 product with a gentle sugar-smoothing exfoliator to remove the dry skin on one side, preparing your lips for the tinted moisturising balm on the other.
Available in five flattering shades (04 Sweet Rose is pictured below), it's a sweet indulgence that lips can't resist.
Jurlique is synonymous with organic Australian botanicals and this beautifully packaged set contains three of the signature Rose skincare products to pamper, hydrate and nourish dry skin.
Included in this set is the Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cleanser to remove makeup and impurities, the Rosewater Balancing Mist to tone, refresh, balance and soothe the skin, and the Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cream Mask to deeply hydrate the skin, leaving it smooth and soft.
This little trio makes a wonderful antidote to central heating and your skin will thank you later.
The skin around our eyes is particularly delicate and vulnerable to the elements.
The Napoleon Perdis Supreme Eye Cream has a luxuriously soft texture and is full of nourishing ingredients such as coconut oil, vitamin E and lanolin plus Murumuru butter from the Amazon.
This Supreme Eye Cream will nourish the eye area, rejuvenate dehydrated skin whilst targeting fine lines and sagging.
Paraben and fragrance-free, this product can be used in the morning and night as well as throughout the day to refresh your under-eye concealer.
Davidoff Horizon Eau de Toilette Spray, from $80.00
Let's not forget the men...
The latest offering from prestige fragrance house Davidoff is Horizon for men. Inspired by the strength of nature, Horizon is a masculine woody aromatic fragrance created with notes of Ginger, Vetiver, Cedarwood and Cocoa Absolut.
For a limited time only, purchase Davidoff Horizon Eau de Toilette Spray 100ml from Kiana Beauty Melbourne and receive a free Horizon Shower Gel 150ml. Limit of one per person, strictly while stocks last.
There's no denying there is something special in the air on Valentine's Day ... anticipation, flirting, love.
The team behind Kiana Beauty loves to celebrate the wonderful men and women we share our lives with. Our unofficial office survey showed a unanimous preference for giving and receiving fragrances on Valentine's Day. A quick spritz behind the ears and on pulse points to get the heart racing...
Whether your preferred fragrance is something fun, fresh, seductive, playful, mysterious or downright sexy - we've got you covered.
Here are some of our favourites. Take a look below the image where we've even personality-matched them for you. You can thank us later.
Happy Valentine's Day.

Glenda is someone who truly personifies passion for her job. Glenda has worked with Estee Lauder for over 20 years and in 2014, she was the first Australian to be inducted into the Estee Lauder Hall of Fame.
We thought we would spend five minutes chatting to Glenda to learn a bit more about Estee Lauder.
What are your top 3 Estee Lauder cleansers?
Glenda: I love the Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask because it's quick and easy to use as a cleanser, but you can also take a bit more time and use it as a mask.
The Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Creme Cleanser/Moisture Mask is great as a cleanser for dry skin, but it too can also be used as a moisture mask.
The ultimate cleanser is the Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Hydrating Creme Cleanser which is beautifully hydrating and adds a touch of luxury to your skincare regime.
I love the Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks with their intense colour and hydration. They also have a great magnetic lid and are beautifully presented.
I also love the Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion which plumps the lips and adds continuous moisture. It simply glides onto the lips adding a gorgeous shine.
