Gift Ideas: Roger & Gallet Hand Cream Coffret

Hello all, hope you're all well and getting on with your Christmas shopping! I was so glad to get paid today so I could finally start mine - I must've spent half my wages in the space of 20 minutes, having planned what I was already going to buy! It's going to be a super busy month, but I vowed to myself that I would blog so much more in December. Even though I'm not organised enough to take part in Blogmas, I'm still trying my hardest to fit in some festive posts before the big day!

Today I have for you a luxurious gift set from Roger & Gallet, which is sure to put a smile on your loved one's face come Christmas morning.

For those of you in the dark, perhaps a little education is in order. Founded in 1862, Armand Roger and Charles Gallet sought to create perfumes from natural sources. The Parisian perfume house was inspired by Jean-Marie Farina, Eau de Cologne creator and official supplier to Napoleon I. The insistence on natural ingredients meant that they could extract their essences and create subtly perfumed scents. Roger & Gallet have been exporting their products since 1880 (in the years before, they had only sold to French department stores), and are now known worldwide in perfumery circles.

For the coming festive season, Roger & Gallet have a whole range of beautiful gift sets to ensure an enchanted Christmas. The theme this year is represented by products which depict a luscious and magical garden of fantasy. Hence, all the gift sets feature gorgeous floral scents. Housed in a beautiful arabesque patterned gift boxes, each gift set reflects the ornate gates of the newest boutique in Paris. The intricate gold pattern is punctuated with colourful floral designs and represents all the discoveries in the most beautiful gardens in the world, from which the ingredients are sourced.

The Hand Cream Coffret* is a lovely gift for the woman who has everything. I know my mum would love this because she suffers from really dry hands - especially in these harsh winter months! This handy (see what I did there?) trio will ensure smooth and delicately scented hands. Enriched using argan oil and evening primrose oil, the non-greasy creams nourish hands leaving them protected with a hint of floral flutter. The Coffret includes Rose (enriched with shea butter and rose extract), Créme Sublime (a subtle citrus with SPF 15 protection) and Fleur d'Osmanthus (enriched with apricot oil). My favourite of the three is definitely Fleur d'Osmanthus, simply for its delicious apricot scent - I love it!

The Roger & Gallet Hand Cream Coffret retails at £17.50, and is available from Feel Unique.
