Christmas - and the season of gift-giving - is just around the corner. It’s a tricky time of year when you probably have an endless list of who to buy for and the risk of buying meaningless presents all in the name of generosity is all too real. This season step away from the endless aisles of impersonal gifts and indulge in something special (whether it’s a gift for a loved one, or a gift for yourself). For us, you can never go wrong with beautiful skin care or a luxury fragrance in a classic, emotion-evoking scent and nothing says ‘timeless classic’ like rose. With the help of skin care brand Jurlique, discover our ‘all-roses’ Christmas gift guide for an indulgent treat everyone will love this festive season.
For the home
A luxury candle is always a welcome gift - something they can light while sitting back, relaxing and reflecting on what a good friend/sister/daughter/mum/partner you are. Rose is known for its calming fragrance, so opt for our Persian Rose candle which takes inspiration from an ancient rose-scented Persia, with a balancing addition of bergamot, mandarin, dark amber, soft musk and patchouli. The result? A rich but not overpowering scent that will immediately bring a sense of calm to any home.
For the beauty cabinet
Roses have been used in beauty for centuries, thanks to their hydrating qualities and subtly sweet, uplifting scent. It’s also a staple botanical ingredient in Jurlique’s skin care range, with the brand utilising rose extract in their formulas since the 1980s. For a unique twist this Christmas, choose a gift from the Moisture Plus Rare Rose range, which uses the extract from the exclusively-grown Jurlique Rose – a rose you won’t find anywhere but the Jurlique farm in South Australia. Create your own beauty gift set with Rosewater Balancing Mist, Moisture Plus Rare Rose Serum and Moisture Plus Rare Rose Lotion - three modern-day icons that will take pride of place in anyone’s skin care collection.
For the finishing touches
What’s the last thing you put on when getting ready? A piece of jewellery, a slick of lipstick, a dab of perfume? With the same scent as the Persian Rose candle, our Persian Rose perfume oil - in a handy 10mL size for touch-ups on the go - is a romantic and fresh yet rich fragrance that will uplift the wearer all day (or night) long, providing a subtle yet evocative finishing touch. Plus, rose is known to reduce stress (rose petals are even used in Ayurvedic medicine to promote relaxation), so applying rose-infused products is good for the mind and soul too. Include this in a self-care gift box for a truly thoughtful present this Christmas.
