Jaden Cornelious sings 'Nature's Miracle' for charity Saturday 1st September
After performing at The Queensmere last weekend, Jaden Cornelious is back by popular demand at The Observatory to perform on 1st September from midday to raise awareness and funds for Berkshire based Sports Able and London based Access Sport, both helping disabled children access sports facilities, mentoring and training.

Jaden has written and released the song 'Nature's Miracle' a song that is not only a positive affirmation, but which celebrates the fact that no matter what, we are totally unique. No one can walk, talk or smile like us - we are nature's individual miracles and that is something to not only be proud of but to be celebrated. The song was released online in July 2012 and 100% of ALL download sales will be shared equally between his chosen charities, chosen as they help children/adults with disabilities and children from deprived areas to achieve their sporting dreams.

Come along to The Observatory outside Primark and enjoy a fantastic voice and amazing song while supporting a very worthy cause.

Senti Introduce Three New Fragrances to the Dr Vranjes Luxury Home Fragrance Range

This September, Dr. Paolo Vranjes, world renowned Florentine chemist, cosmetologist and perfumer is adding new fragrances to his luxury home fragrance range. Excluding the Dr. Vranjes Collection Range, it has been a number of years since Dr Vranjes introduced a new fragrance to the UK, but that’s about to change with the debut of not one, but three stunning new fragrances. 

Born and educated in Bologna, Dr Vranjes was inspired by his grandfather - a silk trader with a passion for collecting essences and perfumes encountered on his travels. In 1983, Dr. Paolo Vranjes decided to unite his personal history with that of a city unique for its culture of essences and perfumes - Florence.  Created and produced in Florence Dr Vranjes’ products are now available in 22 countries, his products are now available in over 30 countries, used in the some of the worlds finest hotels and grace the shelves of prestigious UK stores such as Harrods, Liberty and Fortnum and Mason.

By combining only the finest essential oils and pure natural ingredients, Dr Vranjes is recognised worldwide for being one of the finest producers of home fragrances whose brand symbolises quality and luxury. These new fragrances will add exciting and exotic alternatives to the existing range.

Chinotto e Pepe – Chinotto and Pepper
A masterpiece of balance and harmony, this new Dr Vranjes fragrance is created with the unique combination of bitter orange and pepper.  Facets of citrus from bergamot, mandarin and orange are warmed with a sumptuous, spicy union of cardamom, nutmeg and saffron, blended with the precious woody notes of vetiver, sandalwood and amyris. 250ml - £49.50

Cuoio e Radica – Leather and Wood
Designed to impress, this marriage of leather and briarwood create a masculine fragrance.  The elegance of orange blossom, violet leaf and freesia are expertly combined with the virility of cedar, patchouli leaf and briarwood, blended perfectly with the surprisingly soft notes of leather, amber and vanilla. 250ml - £49.50
Petali di Rose – Rose Petal
The Intoxicating fragrance of rose petals, the main component of this beautiful new floral bouquet is precious Turkish Rose, highlighted by touches of geranium, ylang ylang, violet and jasmine.  Notes of cedar wood, amber, vanilla and white musk give a rich intensity to this elegant fragrance. If you liked Dr. Vranjes previous Rose fragrance, you will love this for its depth. 250ml - £49.50.

The full Dr. Vranjes range, available from Senti includes bath and body products, perfumes, fragranced diffusers and candles.
