[Warning claxon] It’s Mother’s Day in the UK this coming Sunday, so why not treat her to something that’s extra special, a bit different, that’s pamperingly gorgeous and smells utterly divine to boot? A perfume, you say. Well yes, but with an ultra-luxurious way of experiencing it, too…
**Breaking News** – The lovely people at Omorovicza have very kindly offered a bottle of Bagatelle de Gabrielle as a competition prize!
To enter, simply follow us on Twitter, and tweet us @Perfume_Society using the hashtag #TPSGiveaway and we’ll pick a random winner on Friday (hopefully in time to give it to your mum as a gift?)
There are many benefits to being a perfumista’s mum, not the least of which is various scented offering throughout the year – but for Mother’s Day this year, the Budapest skincare brand Omorovicza are bringing their luxuriously fragranced, natural skin treats to Clifton Nurseries – London’s oldest and most beautiful garden centre – following on from the success of their first pop-up spa event here last year, and just in time for Mother’s Day…
Omorovicza have created a scented facial exclusively for the pop up spa, with the treatment incorporating many of the raw ingredients found in their first fragrance, Bagatelle de Gabrielle, which launched last year on Mother’s Day – so this is the perfect way to celebrate for all concerned. As a brand obsessed by the quality of their ingredients, they pay just as much attention to the scent, too – such an important aspect when you’re wearing it on your skin – and work with perfumers at Grasse to ensure their products smell just as beautiful as you’ll look following your pampering session.
The oh-so-pretty Spring-fresh floral eau de toilette was touchingly named after the daughter of founders Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza and his wife, Margaret, and inspired by the exotic atmosphere of Budapest. Bagatelle de Gabrielle was created with the brief to be light, floral, feminine, carefree and happy – so a pampering session built around these aims sounds just the ticket to us!
Omorovicza say: ‘At its core lies the fragile balance between Orange Flower and Tonka bean. Freesia and lavender notes contrast with the feminine sensuality of tuberose.
Bagatelle de Gabrielle
Top Notes: Bergamot, Freesia, Lavender
Heart Notes: Orange Flower, Muguet, Tuberose
Base Notes: Tonka Bean, Creamy Woods, Sandalwood
The illuminating hydrating treatment starts with a stimulating enzymatic cleanse and polish. A rose scented serum lifts and tightens the skin and a Hungarian moor mud mask detoxifies and draws out impurities. The recently launched Miracle Facial Oil, used as the message medium in the traditional Hungarian facial massage, enhances the effect of the massage boost elasticity, lift and firm.
Omorovicza facials combine the brand’s products with a unique and modern interpretation of the traditional Hungarian facial massage technique that treats face, neck, shoulders and décolleté. The massage stimulates the lymphatic drainage, to eliminate excess fluid and toxins, increases the muscle tone and improves firmness.’
We suggest booking ASAP for this ultra luxurious way to celebrate your mum (and why not book in a facial for yourself, too?)
Details: The treatment will lasts thirty minutes and is suitable for all skin types.
