Bronnley Pink Peony & Rhubarb Body Collection


Here's some affordable summer layering prettiness for you. Bronnley - that much-loved British bodycare range – have been working hard on their image lately, shaking off the latest traces of great-auntishness to bring us some really contemporary fragrances and designs. (The Eclectic Elements collection is absolutely eye-poppingly stunning, too.)

They enlisted award-winning artist Helen Campbell to create the blowsy flower which blooms all over the packaging – but as ever, it's the scents and textures which matter most to us. Lots of options: if you really want some flower power, you could start with Bath & Shower Gel (or even Soap – making a comeback!) – and then follow with the lovely light-yet-nourishing Body Lotion. (There's a hand duo, too.)

These all create a pretty base for the eau de toilette itself: fruity flourishes of tart rhubarb make for a refreshing modern take on the rose that's feminine without being fussy.

And at prices that won't guilt-trip you if you swing for the lot.
