As a product junkie since 1986 I can confidently say I know my stuff. Everyone loves to receive a new soap or shampoo or bath product during the holiday season, but only one that actually smells great and looks nice in their home. Too often have I received a body spray and wash that smells like...well, we don't have to go there. I'm sure you've experienced this shared pain of a failed present. The gift of beauty can be a tricky one to get just right. There is however, a tried and true technique I developed a few years ago that has me batting 1000 and I'm happy to share it with you. If you want to gift your loved ones with the bath and beauty products they are guaranteed to love you must hone in on a single, high-end brand known for its heritage and bold scents. This year my brand of choice: Molton Brown, the London-based connoisseurs of bath, body, and fragrance since 1973. Every single product they craft is perfection. Why else would 5 star hotels, the most stylish homes, and the best department stores carry their items with pleasure internationally? My personal favorites: their classic Orange & Bergamot Hand Soap + Lotion Set, the Papyrus Reed Repairing Shampoo + Conditioner, and Abrusca Wash + Scrub (it's this amazing exfoliator made from grape extract and ground olive stone).
Here's what I'll have tucked under the Christmas tree this year for my mom, sister, and other ladies in my life that I love. Trust me, I'm an expert ;)
Limited Edition Scents
Molton Brown's newest limited edition scent that's right up my alley is Vintage 2015 with Elderflower. It has notes of grapefruit, petitgrain, and English elderflower so it's light, feminine, and not overbearing. An added bonus? The packaging is simply gorgeous: touches of gold and silver brought together so it's perfect for holiday!
There's nothing better than a gift set when it comes to beauty. You get the best of everything packaged together at an appropriate price from the super luxe to stocking stuffers. Molton Brown is killing it with their holiday offering this year. Perfect even for the younger women in your life!
