New to me is the Oribe Body Care and Fragrance. I should say the box graphics are by Marrakesh based designer Louis Barthelemy – it follows an Egyptian theme, right down to ‘parchment’ inside with gold writing explaining the concept and roots of the brand. A very lovely detail. So, to the body care. The fragrance is Cote d’Azur – a beautiful arrangement of bergamot, blackcurrant and orange with a floral heart and and an amber base. Fragrance is key to this brand – they’ve really made a point of using regarded French noses to create aromas that move the shampooing experience up a level and because it’s been so successful, they’ve expanded it to body care.
I really did get drifts of the Mediterranean with this – it’s a happy kind of a scent with zesty, aquatic accents although having looked at many reviews, some found the last to be poor. That said, I can still smell it on my wrist from wearing it yesterday so I don’t consider that to be poor last. To buy on its own, it’s quite pricy at £110 so definitely one to look out for in January.
By far my favourite product that I’ve tried is the Gold Lust Repair Shampoo – a cool £50 per bottle. But, it’s one of the best shampoos I’ve ever used. By that, I mean it’s generously foamy even in my hard water area, it’s rich but rinses away easily, it’s beautifully fragranced and leaves my hair bouncy, soft and shiny. I don’t even use a conditioner afterwards although I will run some oil through the ends of my hair before I blow dry. The Gold Lust Set is £110 (value £140) HERE if you don’t want to wait and see what the sales bring or if you have a last minute gift to give – SpaceNK last post date is today (21st) by 2pm.
