I can’t quite believe that I wasn’t at all interested in this when I was contacted by the brand! I absolutely adore the bath oils – I think they’re one of the nicest and kindest things you can do for yourself in times of stress or anxiety and I use them all the time. Even at £40 a pop. But, that’s part of the problem with this brand – the exquisiteness of the oils get blurred by very average skin care – I don’t know why they don’t focus more on producing more oils rather than getting sidetracked by products that don’t sell nearly as well. But, what do I know!
My favourite oil is Deep Relax – it’s practically medicine for those can’t sleep, super stressed nights – and the fragrance is rather like having that in a spritz form at your side. It’s unique (to my knowledge) in that it’s proper aromatherapy as a fragrance, rather than a roller ball or dab on formulation. It smells like an enticing spa – you just want to inhale and inhale but I will say it isn’t long lasting; a few hours only and I don’t in the least mind that because it’s good reason to spritz it all over again! It was formulated by Geraldine before she died and her blending signature runs right through it which is both poignant and encouraging. With 28 essential oils (oh, by the way, beware of aromatherapy ‘essences’ – so far from a pure oil that they can’t be named as such) including Bergamot, Sandalwood, French Cassis and Turkish Rose.
The fragrance doesn’t launch til September BUT there are only 2000 available which I think will be snapped up overnight. It’s £64 and worth every single penny of it.

I went to a perfume making class recently and all of the notes you mentioned from the perfume, I really love. Bergamot is addicting and sandalwood just feels like snuggling under a warm blanket on a winter night, making them my favorites!
This is really interesting! Love AA oils. I’ve never tried any skincare but got a sample of their Destress Muscle Gel from Space NK. Don’t know if you’ve ever tried it but I wasn’t expecting much despite my deep deep love for their bath oils – but it’s amazing for the neck pain that’s a side effect of my migraines. Once that neck & shoulder pain starts, its excruciating & it lasts at least 12 hours. The gel took it down about 90% within 30 mins – blown away by it!
I haven’t used it but everyone raves about it.
