[unpaid/affiliate/ad] So, this is the big one – a whopping £400 value gift with a spend of £250 or more in store or on-line. What is really thoughtful about it is the inclusion of 8 gift boxes so that you can parcel up and gift onwards. I’m swayed hugely by the full size Jo Loves Gardenia Candle and a £25 voucher (spend it before Christmas). In a nutshell, the gift comprises 32 sample size products (all classed as deluxe) as well as the aforementioned voucher and candle. Last year, I gave candles (Malin + Goetz mainly) to several friends and relatives so I’ve rounded up a small selection below from Everyone loves a posh candle – it’s something that many people can’t quite justify for themselves but are glad to gift and more importantly, very happy to receive as a gift. This year it’s all about home comforts. If you want to bypass my review and head straight to SpaceNK go HERE.
I’m intrigued by US brand Boy Smells (above) – especially their Hypernature collection which marries nature and science to amplify distinctive notes. Rhubarb Smoke, £45, sounds right up my street, with Neopeche (peach flesh, mandarin, amber) and Agua de Jardin (fig, jasmine, nuts) not far off. These are low stock already so I’d head straight HERE if they take your fancy. They’ve got a lustred, shiny finish on the jar so there is decadence aplenty without being overtly festive (which gives it more longevity in my view because nobody wants to smell Christmas trees in March). Hailing from LA, Boy Smells is a partnership between Matthew Herman and David Kien (also real life partners) both with a background in fashion (they sell underwear too!). This brand was founded in 2016 and seems to have suddenly sprung into life in the UK – I haven’t had hands-on with any of them yet but there are so many to pick from (Cinderose, Cedar Stack, Petal… I could go on!) that you’ll be basketing them willy-nilly and then having to edit out. Really, Boy Smells is about individuality that’s not based on gender and with home comforts top of everyone’s list, you could tick off your entire shop in one fell swoop and reap the rewards yourself. Just saying 🙂 Non affiliate link HERE. So, to those rewards…
As you can see, it’s quite the beauty spread. It’s a good line up with a decent mix (a lot of beauty boxes have got awfully samey) with offerings from Jo Loves, Dr Lipp, Fresh, Sisley, Erborian, Becca, Oskia, Sunday Riley, Living Proof, Verso, Medik8, U Beauty, Dr Dennis Gross, Kate Somerville, Murad, Drunk Elephant, Caudalie, Briogeo, Sol De Janeiro, Elemis, Patchology, REN, Goldfaden, Shiseido, Ouai, Malin + Goetz, Darphin, Virtue and IGK Hair. Whew.
The jewel in the crown is the Jo Loves candle in Gardenia which is a joyful, light and floral thing that unless you have a deep aversion to gardenia will make you smile.
I love the boxes – it’s just such a nice touch and a lovely way to share (but don’t feel guilty if you don’t want to). This is phenomenal value and if you usually shop at SpaceNK for your Christmas presents, this offer pushes you to do it a little earlier than normal which is no bad thing – a little organization never hurt anyone. Head this way – I am sure there are plenty, but just in case, don’t leave it too long – HERE.
