Christmas treats from Roger & Gallet

Well, it’s December so we’re officially allowed to think about Christmas! And when we think about Christmas we have to talk about one of the brands that does gifts so well – Roger & Gallet. I’ve reviewed several of their products in the past, in particular their fragrances and hand creams, and they all make perfect gifts as their packaging is so beautiful.
Today I’m reviewing two items from the Bois d’Orange fragrance collection:
Bois d’Orange Eau Fraiche Parfumee* – I’d expected this Fragrant Water to smell really fruity and orangey but it doesn’t. The scent is supposed to encompass the leaves, flowers and wood of the orange tree as well as the fruit, so it’s more woody and musky than just an orange fragrance. I think it smells quite classic and traditional.
The scent is quite light as this is a fragrant water rather than a perfume, and it’s unisex so suitable for both men and women. The smooth glass bottle with its yellow and gold label doesn’t look too feminine either, so men would be quite happy having this displayed on their dressing table. I quite like using it to spritz inside my linen closet onto towels and pillowcases to freshen them up and give them a nice uplifting zest.
If you decide you like the Bois d’Orange fragrance it comes in lots of different items as well as this Fragrant Water – including Hand and Nail Cream, Shower Gel and Sorbet Body Lotion.
Roger & Gallet Bois d’Orange Christmas Cracker* – the invigorating Bois d’Orange fragrance also comes in this cute Christmas cracker. Perfect for putting on the tree this pretty cardboard cracker contains a Bois d’Orange Hand & Nail Cream plus a mini phial of the fragrance.
These Christmas crackers are available in three of Roger & Gallet’s bestselling fragrances – Bois d’Orange, Fleur de Figuier and Fleur d’Osmanthus. I can highly recommend the Fleur de Figuier fragrance, it’s one of my favourite and earlier this year I reviewed the Fleur de Figuier Eau Fraiche.
The Hand & Nail Cream is lovely and creamy and a perfect size for keeping in a handbag, along with the mini fragrance which will fit into even the smallest of purses for a night out!
Roger & Gallet Bois d’Orange Christmas Cracker is priced at just £6, available from Feel Unique. The Hand & Nail Cream on its own is usually this same price, so basically you’re getting the fragrance and the festive cracker for free!
