There's nothing like unwrapping some luxury smellies on Christmas morning - the type of indulgent treats that you'd never splash out on for yourself. (well...)
Aromatherapy Associates are the kings of luxury smellies, and have got a lovely range of Christmas gift sets this year, my favourite being the Radiant Rose Box.* It's no secret that rose fragranced products are my weakness, and this box would be a dream gift to find under my tree. Inside the festive packaging, there's a super hydrating Renewing Rose Body Wash and a softening Renewing Rose Body Cream, both of which smell incredible. They leave the most heavenly, delicate rose petal scent on the skin which lasts all day, whilst providing all the nutrients and goodness your skin needs to feel soft and nourished. Completing the trio is a little bottle of the Support Equilibrium Bath and Shower Oil. It's a blend of rose, geranium and frankincense designed to comfort your soul and lift your spirits.
And there's something for the men, from Aromatherapy Associates male grooming range - The Refinery. The Refinery Essential Kit* is a perfect gift for the man who appreciates luxury skincare, but likes to keep things simple. Inside the spacious canvas washbag is a two step male grooming duo. The Refinery Face Wash is a cleanser that deeply cleanses leaving a fresh sensation and brightens the complexion. It has refreshing citrus and spearmint, soothing lavender, and cedar wood which leaves a fresh yet woody smell. Step two is the Refinery Revitalising Moisturiser, which is packed full of anti-aging ingredients as well as essential oils to keep the skin nourished, hydrated and smooth. The combination of the smells from these two products leaves a manly mix of mint, citrus and woody fragrances that lingers on the skin.
