Explosive. Alluring.
Iconic men’s fragrance Azzaro Wanted is now available as Azzaro Wanted Girl! It defines untamed beauty, brimming with allure and elegance while stopping at nothing. This girl knows her destiny, creates her own luck and isn’t afraid of anything life throws at her. She is charming and captivating, delectable and charismatic. Azzaro Wanted Girl was created by no less than four master perfumers, and contains notes of aphrodisiac ginger flower, fresh, sour pomegranate, orange blossom and a hint of Datura. This iconic fragrance epitomises the modern woman. The bottle is also notable, shaped like the perfect, blossoming flower; it is also an elegant, petite pistol. Pull the trigger and you release a flamboyant, seductive floral explosion. Available at Mopani, price TBA.

Delheim Pinotage salted chocolate and berry ice cream
We absolutely love this no-churn ice cream; it is super easy to make and you will get goosebumps with every bite. Great flavour complexity and texture and the best of both worlds! Delheim’s Pinotage is not only for those warm winter meals.

Ingredients
• 500ml fresh cream • 1 tin condensed milk • ½ cup Delheim Pinotage • 2 tbs berry jam – the best quality you can find! • 200g dark chocolate • 5ml Maldon salt.

Method
• Pour the wine in a saucepan and simmer until reduced by half. Let it cool. • Melt the dark chocolate, spread it out onto baking paper and sprinkle the Maldon salt over. Leave until it hardens and break up into pieces. • Whip the cream in a stand mixer until stiff peaks form. Once stiff peaks have formed, and with the mixer still running, slowly pour in the sweetened condensed milk. • Turn mixer off, remove bowl, and gently stir in the Delheim Pinotage, berry jam and salted dark chocolate. • Spoon the ice cream into a freezer-safe container and freeze 4 hours or overnight. • Serve in an ice cream cone with chocolate sauce!
