Melbourne turned on the weather yesterday as crowds flocked to Albert Park for the annual Paspaley Polo in the City.

The Guinot tent had one of the best views at the event, overlooking the middle of the polo field allowing guest to enjoy uninterrupted views of the exciting matches. A delicious lunch, dessert and champagne ensured guests stayed full during the day’s activities.

Guests were not only treated to the best views in the house, but they were also spoiled with shoulder and arm massages with luxe Guinot products including Guinot Continuous Nourishing and Protective Cream. Guests were also able to rest their weary legs with a leg massage using Guinot popular Soothing Gel For Legs. Not only is the gel enriched with menthol to provide a cooling effect and nourishing Horse Chestnut and Arnica, but it is also a non-sticky formula which can be used over stockings.


Guinot also had their Ultra Defense cream on hand to ensure their guests didn’t get burnt. One of the only sunscreens on the market to offer SPF 50 plus protection, this is a must have item for summer!

The Kirin bar which was open to the public, served up a taste of their new ciders, Fuji Apple, Fuji Apple & Mikan (mandarin), Fuji Apple & Ume (japanese plum) and Fuji Apple & Ginger. They also had a talented artist on hand to write guests’ names in beautiful cursive hiragana. A wishing tree was also set up in the tent, and attendees were encouraged to write their wishes on paper and attach them to the branches.


Over in the Veuve Clicquot tent which was decked out like a 50’s style diner, the champagne’s signature orange could be found on champagne glasses, umbrellas, hats and fans. Guest were served drinks from a silver Airstream caravan and were treated to southern comfort food such as fried chicken, perfect for trying to stave away a hangover.  Screen shot 2013-12-01 at 5.33.12 PM
