It's not that often that I get to pamper my body with luxury products as I tend to spend my money on skincare and use budget products on my body, so when I get to try some luxury brands, it always feels like a real treat. Molton Brown is a brand that I quite often gift to my mother as she loves their products but I have only used them occasionally myself. What I didn't realise until now is that Molton Brown products are up to 25% cheaper in World Duty Free, which is very tempting you must admit? I was kindly sent the Exquisite Vanilla and Violet Flower Gift Set, which I am going to share my thoughts on today - unfortunately for my mother, it's only my thoughts that I'll be sharing as this one is all mine!
This gift set contains a 300ml bath and shower gel, a 300ml body lotion and a single wick candle, all in the Exquisite Vanilla and Violet Flower scent, which you can smell as soon as the box is opened. The scent is a combination of vanilla, freesia, iris and violet - think parma violet sweets but with the warmth of vanilla and a hint of muskiness, so it isn't sickly sweet. I actually find it to be a very relaxing scent and I have been enjoying my baths with the candle lit and plenty of bubbles from the bath and shower gel, which leaves my skin feeling very clean but not at all stripped. The scent of the candle fills the room and the one next to it and lingers even when extinguished.
To ensure that the scent stays on my skin for even longer, I follow up with the body lotion, which is light in texture yet deeply moisturising. It absorbs instantly and doesn't require a workout to rub it in so you can dress immediately after application without worrying about it sticking to your clothes.
Overall, this set has really impressed me and has definitely tempted me to try more so I will be keeping my eyes peeled in Duty Free for some treats. If this scent combination doesn't sound exactly to your taste, Molton Brown have a variety of scent combinations so there is something to suit all tastes.
Have you used any Molton Brown products? Do you like to treat yourself in Duty Free?
