Sitting by the fireplace in the warmest of the clothes, a scarf wrapped around your neck and feet in the woollen knee high socks. Petting your little husky, whose blue eyes tinkle now and then with the fire’s reflection, in the dark cozy room, while it rains outside. The cold breeze and droplets knocking on the door and teasing the window curtains. You fall asleep and wake up with the sweet smell of the earth soaked in the rain, right after it has stopped raining. Wake up to nothing but the calm, light drizzle now and then and the sweet smell from the green garden outside. Opening the house door to welcome it in, all so fresh, floral and crisp, lasting forever.
To watch something grow bigger than you ever imagined and to nourish it utmost care and caution, such has been the journey with Razzle Dazzle Pickle. Looking back to the older days, I realise of the undiscovered and unspoken dreams. Two reasons that I speak of these things here. First, because it’s almost the end of another beautiful year. Second, because I am presenting something to you that almost feels like a dream, a collaboration with Burberry. Being approached by the brand and receiving the monogrammed bottle of ‘My Burberry’ with my initials on it isn’t something that I thought of.
‘My Burberry’ Eau De Toilette, inspired by the classic and iconic Trench Coat by the brand, makes you paint a very similar picture in your head. Worked around with colors that very well portray the after-rain atmosphere, the revived greens and while reflecting the urban confidence. Writing this while the sweet smell of My Burberry floats around in my room here, and as I look forward to a much brighter year, filled with more creativity, energy and happiness.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year.
– With love, Ritu.
