Potter & Moore Sheer Luxury Gift Collection

Potter & Moore Sheer Luxury Gift Collection

The “Sheer Luxury” name says it all. We were impressed by the high quality and elegant presentation of this gift set made by Potter & Moore, an English company that incorporates a love for herbs and flowers into their bath, body and beauty products. For $95—what many of us would very willingly pay for a single bottle of our favorite perfume—the set includes a stamped leather bag and a full-sized Eau de Toilette, Bathing Milk and Triple Milled Soap. Fragrance choices include Spiced Tuberose and Orchid, Orange Flower and Amber, and Green Ginger. We tried the first of the three, which combined sweet and musky tones without being overpowering. "Formal" is the best word to describe the aroma as well as how we felt when wearing the fragrance.

It's the little details that really make us want to buy this set for all of our friends: each of the three products is wrapped in silky, translucent tissue paper; the Bathing Milk comes in a glass bottle worth of display on a vanity; and the leather bag, perfect for traveling in style, is lined in Champagne-colored satin printed with the company's logo. Who could ask for anything more?

Price: $95
