This #LimitedEdition iteration of the oil comes sheathed in a decadent degrade-effect black-and-gold bottle stamped with a monogram made out of miniature Eiffel Towers, making it incredibly Instagram-friendly and exquisite enough to be gifted as is – no wrapping paper required! We reckon it’ll look fantastic on your friend’s dressing table – or your own, for that matter.

Then there’s the posh Parisian perfume of the opulent oil itself, which reminds us of luxe French fragrances – think a beguiling bouquet of fresh white flowers the likes of jasmine, rose, lily and bergamot simmering in a sensuous base of patchouli, white musk and orange blossom. Mm, we like!

HOW TO USE THIS OIL

Subtle scent aside, this covetable collectible is packed with precious white rose oil to lend your moistureless mane a shampoo ad-worthy sheen. Here’s how:

A really neat way of introducing oils into your routine is to use them as a gentle pre-wash treatment. The lipids of the oil helps to melt away all the styling gunk from the day for fuller penetration of the goodness from your subsequent shampoos.

Warm up a generous dollop of hair oil in your palms, work it into damp hair, then step into the shower and rinse off. Follow up with your go-to shampoo for surpassingly silky strands.

Another nifty way of using this oil would be as a protective pre-styling sealant – simply smooth into damp hair before blow-drying, paying extra care to the ends for easier styling.

This oil is fantastic for on-the-go touch-ups without weighing down on your mane. The follicle-fortifying formula has also been designed to sink straight in to amplify softness and shine without leaving behind a greasy residue, making it perfect for taming pesky flyaways on the go.

Simply dispense one or two drops between your palms and lightly skim across the surface and through the tips of your tresses as and when you feel like adding a little extra lustre.

Bottomline: Get this for your beauty-obsessed girlfriend for use in her latest social media #flatlay shot. Her hair will thank you later!
