With Christmas and New Year behind us, our thoughts can start to turn towards Valentine's Day and Mother's Day and, with those celebrations in mind, Baylis & Harding have come up with two brand new product lines for 2017.
First is the vibrant, carefree Pink Prosecco and Cassis range, which is their SS17 Limited Edition signature collection. The packaging is girly and bang on trend, with a chic rose gold colouring, but the best thing about it is the fragrance - light, fruity, fun, with blackberry and raspberry topnotes giving way to a mellow vanilla undercurrent. You can even match your home fragrance to your beauty products for the whole bubblicious package !
We received a Pink Prosecco and Cassis Diffuser Set which has an RRP of £15 and is available from ASDA. It smells lovely, looks elegant and lasts for up to four weeks. You can also buy a stylish single wick candle in a glass cloche (RRP £15, available from Tesco).
Going all out on the romantic Valentine's theme, this heart-shaped Ultimate Bathing Treats Set is sure to score your husband/boyfriend lots of Brownie points, but it would also appeal to mums, friends and daughters of any age. It contains 300ml Shower Creme, 300ml Body Lotion, 130ml Body Wash, 100ml Body Butter & Bath Soak Crystals, plus the box can be reused afterwards for storing keepsakes or knick-knacks. (RRP £25, available from Debenhams). There is also a Hand Wash & Lotion Gift Set (RRP £8, available at Morrisons).
The second range is La Maison Linen Rose & Cotton which replicates the calming, comforting scent of freshly laundered linen blowing freshly in the summer breeze, accompanied by a delicate rose fragrance.
The Bathing Essentials Tin is gorgeous - it contains 300ml Body Cleanser, 300ml Bath & Shower Creme, 125ml Bath & Shower Gel and 125ml Body Balm and is delivered in a beautiful and practical tin, decorated with a pretty heart design (RRP £30, available from Argos).
Also available in the range are a Luxury Bath & Shower Crème (RRP £12, available at House of Fraser), a single wick candle (RRP £15, available at House of Fraser) and a set of three candles (RRP £20, available from Debenhams).
These would all make lovely gifts for any occasion, from a birth or birthday to Valentine's Day or Mother's Day, but why save them for others? Splashing out on some of the gorgeous home fragrance items counts as buying something for the house, not yourself, so you can buy the whole range without feeling the slightest twinge of guilt !
