Fashion: What a suite smell!
Many are looking forward to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next year, but first there's a big birthday for another of our grande dames. London's Dorchester, hostelry to the rich and famous, is 80 this year – and is celebrating with a new range of spa packages and products. Aromatherapy Associates has created a bespoke scent for the hotel's birthday box, made with cedarwood, frankincense and sandalwood. As well as featuring in gift sets, the fragrance will be used in the Anniversary Ritual massage at its world-famous spa. £150 for 80 minutes, dorchestercollection.com
Face to watch: Henry Lloyd-Hughes

Katie Price, Hulk Hogan, Ellen Page, Paul Daniels
1. Fennel is the best!
2. BTW Mam is a chain smoking, lard cooking, chocolate and sweet eating, fried food woman. It's all wrong but she has beaten the odds.
3. I love getting excited! I am excited!
4. Perfect morning, my feet hit the ground and all I could think about was being grateful and thank you for perfect health, abundance, greatness

On the radar: Because some things are still worth getting excited about...
Lady Gaga/Wild Beasts
Yes, you read that right – marvel at the unlikeliest combo in pop, as the cerebral Kendal four-piece remix the Queen of shock-pop's latest single to magisterially eerie effect. bit.ly/oPpdAt
Dating: Doing Something
This delightful new match-maker cuts a cutesy swathe through the competition while putting an emphasis on activities – you can even spin the "Wheel of Date" if you're feeling adventurous.doingsomething.co.uk
