Christmas Beauty Countdown: Monsoon’s Rose Gold Fragrance

IMG_8673 IMG_8675

The new Rose Gold fragrance from Monsoon, from £24, would so make a lovely Christmas present for a loved one. Despite it being a High Street brand, the packaging is beautifully sophisticated, pared-back and luxe-looking. White and gold give it a premium feel, while the teardrop bottle is also elegant and a lovely, tactile shape.

As we know, looks aren’t everything, so I am pleased to say that I am also seriously impressed with the scent itself. It’s soft and velvety with top notes of citrus (lemon, mandarin) that develop to reveal a rich floral heart with woods (tuberose, neroli and cyclamen). It also combines vanilla, musk and amber notes which linger on the skin for hours after spritzing. It’s feminine and sensual and a real winner! I normally opt for unusual, niche perfumes but this one is my current ‘spritz du jour’ and has pride of place on my dressing table. It’s lovely. Wrap it up (even if you end up opening it yourself!)
