Vintage Romance: Rose & Co

A few months ago, before the chaos of the house move, I was sent some Rose & Co goodies to try out.  As soon as I opened the package I knew that these were products I definitely wanted to save for the new house so they've been sitting untouched for all this time (I'm so impressed I managed to resist temptation for so long!)

Rose & Co are a Yorkshire based brand created by mother and daughter team Pauline and Caroline Rose who bought an old druggist shop in the Yorkshire village of Haworth.   The Rose ladies were determined to return the shop to its old Victorian splendour and are now the proud owners of a charming little apothecary complete with antique fittings, glass counters and old chemist bottles. 

If, like me, you are completely swept away by the Rose story you will probably love the Rose & Co products which are as beautifully romantic as the Victorian store they call home.  Rose & Co use locally sourced ingredients and many of their products are created using traditional handmade methods.

First up I tried a few bits from No. 84, the new signature range fragranced with rose, tea, violet, jasmine and iris enriched with cedar, amber and musk.

The Hand Wash takes pride of place in our new bathroom and looks absolutely stunning, far fancier than any hand wash we've ever had before.  I adore the pink and gold packaging and I'm hoping we still have some left when we welcome our first guest to the house!  The Hand Wash is really gentle and smells delicious.



Unfortunately the health and safety rules of living in a new build mean that we currently don't have any hot water coming out of our bath tap.   I'm missing my Sunday afternoon baths so much and you can guarantee that when we finally have some nice hot water my Rose & Co bath soak will be top of my pamper list.  I like to open it every now and again for a smell!

We all know how much I love my cupcakes so I did get a bit excited when I saw the last product from the No. 84 range.  A ridiculously beautiful cupcake soap.  It never fails to make me smile when I reach for it in the shower every morning and I'll definitely be buying another one when it's gone.


Saving the best for last, I am obsessed with the Rose Petal Salve.  It's fast becoming my "go to" saviour now that the colder weather has appeared.   When I'm not slathering it on my lips it's going on my dry elbows and cuticles and I've even used it to tame my brows.  
 
With Christmas approaching I definitely recommend giving Rose & Co a look, they have some great gifts for the ladies in your life.
