Ten Things



Belle de Tanger

Former basketball player Ben Gorham studied arts at The School of Arts in Stockholm before an encounter with famed perfumer Pierre Wulff had him trading his paintbrushes for blotter strips. Wulff introduced Gorham to two of the most distinguished noses in the biz, Jérome Epineete and Olivia Giacobetti, who helped Gorham execute and launch his evocative niche fragrance line Byredo (short for “By Redolent”) in Stockholm in 2006. His latest #ONLYATNM creation, Belle de Tanger, blends orange bitters, juniper berries, and midnight violet on a base of incense and cashmere. The name nods to NM’s heritage of Southern charm.

Nano Gold Energizing Eye Serum

Built on botanicals, Chantecaille’s skincare formulas set a new standard with highly active natural ingredients that deliver impressive results. “For me, true luxury marries incredible textures with effective, innovative science,” says Founder Sylvie Chantecaille. “No product is truly luxurious unless it’s incredibly effective on the skin, pleasant to use, and delivers results.” All this and more: the Nano Gold Energizing Eye Serum. Formulated with 24-karat gold and raspberry and tomato stem cells, it reduces dark circles and puffiness while smoothing existing lines and preventing new ones from forming.

Clive Christian

Rock Rose Parfum

Clive Christian was a designer of luxury interiors and furnishings before buying The Crown Perfumer and renaming it Clive Christian Perfume. Christian wanted to create his own contemporary scents, but also retain a connection to the perfumer’s illustrious past. In 1999, he released his initial collection, a trio made from the finest raw materials. Now comes Noble VII, inspired by the Queen Anne garden at Christian’s manor in Cheshire, England. Cosmos Flower for women is fruity, rich, and sweet with notes of lemon, magnolia flower, and cocoa. Rock Rose for men is classic and sharp—a blend of bergamot, lavender, and cedarwood.

Rouge Dior

In 1946 the House of Dior was founded with the goal to make women look sophisticated, sexy, and elegant. Seven years later, Christian Dior introduced Rouge Dior, a bold red lipstick inspired by the scarlet gowns of his haute couture. His goal: “to dress women’s smiles” with a true red. With its latest, Dior has reinterpreted Rouge Dior for the modern woman in a spectrum of 50 shades—including the iconic Rouge 999—in two finishes, satin and matte. “I created this collection so women can change shades to express themselves,” says Peter Philips, creative and image director of Dior Makeup.

Oyxgen Booster

The Omorovicza story began 2,000 years ago when the curative benefits of Hungary’s hot springs were first discovered by the Romans, who then built the first of the country’s famous mineral baths. In 2006, Margaret and Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza harnessed these healing properties with a patented skincare delivery system. Formulated with minerals from these thermal waters, hyaluronic acids, and natural extracts, the brand’s Oxygen Booster brightens skin tone and reduces the appearance of wrinkles while locking in moisture for a visibly healthier complexion.

Natura Bisse

Diamond Extreme Oil

Since Neiman Marcus introduced the European brand to the U.S. in 1994, Natura Bissé has become an international success, creating a succession of pioneering antiaging skin treatments. Introduced in 2000, The Diamond Collection is the brand’s crowning jewel, formulated with powerful active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, retinol, and marine DNA.
