Home Spas - Going for Gold with Ormonde Jayne

Want to be the Golden Girl?
Most of us have watched James Bond “Goldfinger” and remember the scene where Goldfinger’s secretary is covered with gold paint. Well you may not want to go that far to dazzle everyone at the Christmas festivities but a little light dusting of real 24 carat gold powder over your décolleté and shoulders will ensure you catch their eye as you shimmer and sparkle with style.

Gold Dust is packaged in an elegant black lacquered handmade gold box crafted by British carpenters and contains a very fluffy and feminine champagne coloured marabou feather trim French satin powder puff. The subtle but exotic fragrance is of the rare Ta’if Rose, a damask rose from the plantations of Ta’if, a town rising 5,000ft above the shores of the Red Sea. It takes 10,000 rose petals to make just 10ml of Ta’if Rose oil, and they are harvested only during April.
The retail price of £408 for 15ml is not to be sneezed at (definitely don’t sneeze!).
But if this is a step too far there is the cheaper Gold Creme at £58. Alcohol free matrix made from natural sugars mixed with perfume compound and gold.
Before using  soak in the bath with Ormonde Jayne’s essential bathing oil and surrounded yourself with  mini scented candles ( Bathing Beauty gift box of 100ml oil and 2 mini candles- £68) then you are ready to add your sparkle..
Ormonde Jayne has a selection of perfumes but Gold Dust is only available in Ta’if (which is actually my favourite so if anyone wants to buy me Gold Dust for Christmas? – Ah well I can but dream)
All is available online except for the Gold Dust which is exclusive to Harrods and at Ormonde Jayne’s London boutique stores: 12 The Royal Arcade, off 28 Bond Street and 192 Pavillion Road off Sloane Square.
