The Bluebeards Revenge Eau de Toilette Gift Set | Christmas Gift Guide

The Bluebeards Revenge Eau de Toilette Gift Set
The Bluebeards Revenge Eau de Toilette Gift Set


One of the (many) features that attracted me to my Fiancé almost eight years ago, was how amazing he always smelt. Rob has a fragrance collection to rival mine, and he always prides himself on smelling good, so fragrance gift sets are always a winner at Christmas for him. The Bluebeards Revenge Eau de Toilette Gift Set includes a 100ml bottle of The Bluebeards Revenge Eau de Toilette, and a 150ml bottle of matching Shower Gel packaged within a cool gift box. I love the bright, cobalt blue box complete with holographic skull on the front.. I'm not sure why, but I've always had a love for skulls. The bottle of fragrance and shower gel are blue and silver just like the box, with the fragrance being opaque with a matte finish, which I really like as it's unique to the usual translucent glass bottles.

Purchasing fragrance for your man can be quite risky, so I make sure I look for scents that carry the notes that he prefers and I knew that The Bluebeards Revenge Eau de Toilette was going to be a scent he liked after I read the notes; Bergamot, Basil, Jasmine, Black Tea, Watermint, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Oakmoss and Musk. I was impressed by how complex the notes were for a seemingly 'cheaper' fragrance, and even more so when I smelt it for the first time as it's such a gorgeous, manly scent. I love how fresh, manly and woody this scent is, and it really reminds me of a couple of Hugo Boss fragrances such as Boss In Motion Blue.. if your man likes Hugo Boss, then you can guarantee he'll really like this too - it's a very likeable scent which I imagine would appeal to men of all ages. Gift sets like this are always great value, as you get the matching shower gel so you can layer the fragrance to intensify the scent and prolong the wear but to get a 100ml bottle of eau de toilette and 150ml bottle of shower gel for under £25 is amazing value.

I absolutely love Christmas.. especially all of our family traditions that I'm sure many other families do, but I also love hearing about other people's traditions too. One of our family traditions include 'Tree Presents', which I suppose is our own version of a family secret Santa, as we all buy one gift for someone in the family for under £10 and wrap it and place it on the Christmas tree before Christmas dinner, and then after dinner we get to open our tree present. This year I have to buy a tree present for my Mum which I'm pretty pleased with as she's so easy to buy for.

The Aromatherapy Associates The Star £10* would make the most perfect Tree Present for my Mum or actually any of the females in any family. It has the sweetest packaging with a teal cardboard star shaped gift box, which has an elastic loop at the top so it can hang off a branch of the Christmas tree. Inside the box, there is a 7.5ml glass bottle of the Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Bath and Shower Oil, which is one of my personal favourite Aromatherapy Associates blends. Inner Strength was created to help evoke a sense of calm and inner peace with a combination of frankincense, clary sage and cardamom essential oils. The Inner Strength range is particularly special as 10% of all proceeds are donated to the Defence Against Cancer charity, which is such a thoughtful touch, especially as a couple of my family members are currently fighting cancer.

If you read beauty blogs regularly, you'll have read copious rave reviews of Aromatherapy Associates' products; especially their potent yet incredible oils.. no-one does aromatherapy like Aromatherapy Associates. The oils are so effective and Inner Strength is no different at helping to calm and clear the mind. If you've been dying to try them for yourself, The Star is a great way to be able to give them a go as the bottle is so generously sized, with enough oil for multiple showers and/or baths before purchasing the full size - although I warn you, you will want the full size after your very first try.
