The limited edition sparkly numbers – many new for this year - will be in store from October, so there’s plenty of time before the main event to splash out and treat yourself. I have a sly feeling I will be snapping up some of this lot early. What say you?
Here is a round-up of what’s new:
Festive Baubles - £10 each
I’ve bought beauty themed tree decorations in the past (last year it was a miniature Aromatherapy Associates oil) but never ones where the bottle is itself the bauble, as here. Usually the bit you hang from the tree is the box, with the product tucked inside. I think this Molton Brown number is clever. The 75ml baubles come as body washes in Black Peppercorn, Eucalyptus, Gingerlily, Orange & Bergamot, Pink Pepperpod, Templetree and Ylang-Ylang. A Frankincense & Allspice hand wash will be available too.
The Oudh Accord & Gold Trio – from £20
This I love! A brand new luxury collection comprising Oudh-scented body wash, body lotion and candle. Oudh is derived from the rare Aquilaria tree native to south east Asia. The extracted oil is reputedly the most expensive in the world! Molton Brown has added real gold flecks to the wash, adding to the opulence and delivering a fitting festive sparkle. The formulae – which also include cinnamon leaf oil – smell sweet, woody and aromatic. A fragrance is on the way too, I’m told!
Pink Pepperpod Cracker - £20
A collection of treat size Pink Pepperpod products presented in an ornate red cracker. Inside is a 50ml body lotion, 50ml body wash and 40ml replenishing hand cream.
The Three Kings Candle Set - £60
As its name suggests, a set of gold, frankincense and myrrh candles. More precisely we have Oudh Accord & Gold Trinity Candle, Frankincense & Allspice Trinity Candle and Myrrh Musk & Cypress Trinity Candle.
Precious Gems Soap Collection - £25
Molton Brown’s first ever soaps (not counting the men’s skincare ones). This trio of glycerine-based scented jewels consists of Orange & Bergamot Citrine Soap, Gingerlily Fireopal Soap and Pink Pepperpod Sapphire Soap - each 100g.
