The Apothecary in House of Fraser is quickly becoming my ‘go-to’ destination for any girly gifts and treats. They have so many gorgeous and unique brands you can’t get anywhere else that you’re bound to find that special gift you’ve been hunting for. The latest brand to join the ranks is Rose & Co, a beautiful collection of bath and bathing products that are packaged in traditionally decorated and quintessentially British tins, bottles and boxes.
Designer, stylist and entrepreneur Caroline Rose is a practicing aromatherapist who personally develops all the product formulations using hand-picked, UK-sourced ingredients and professionally blended essential oils. The beautiful collection is inspired by a love of all things vintage, romantic and decadently elegant.Where else can you get bath melts that look as cute and scrummy as this?
I’m absolutely adoring the Rose & Co ‘patisserie’ range which contains teeny cakes and fondant fancies for your bath. These literally look good enough to eat – although I wouldn’t try it – and smell utterly divine too. I’ve had a few of these sat on my side table over the weekend and they have such a strong percentage of essential oils they’ve been acting like a beautiful air freshener, imparting the scents of rose and lemon into the air.
These make delightful gifts, especially as it’s Mothers Day coming up, or even an indulgent treat for yourself. They are so reasonably priced too, starting at £10 for a box of three, that you can afford to try one in every flavour! I highly recommend the lemon meringue or the rose bath melts… I’m off to have a splash about.
