It’s only a matter of time really before the super rich start to bathe in golden ponds to pass the time. Thankfully, we’re still in baby steps phase… they’re, instead, dusting themselves with gold these days. Personally, I love the idea. Let’s be indulgent and throw caution to the wind. Let’s live life like there’s no tomorrow and prance about like Princesses without any cares in the world. Ah, that would be the day. However, that’s all I could think about when I read about the new 24 carat gold dusting powder from the Ormonde Jayne Perfumery in London. How truly stunning a discovery is this, no?
The gold dusting powder is housed in a black lacquered handmade gold box which is crafted by British carpenters (home grown, I approve!). The puff stored within is hand sewn in French satin and comes complete with a champagne coloured marabou feather trim. The dust within is perfumed with the intoxicating Ta’if Rose scent. Anyone familiar with Ormonde Jayne will already know that the Ta’if Roses are harvested only during April and are hand picked each morning, five thousand feet above the shores of the Red Sea and overlooking the Arabian Desert. Does it get any more exotic and romantic?
Of course this little romantic adventure comes with a hefty price tag, £400 for 15ml to be exact. But can you put a price on perfection?
This little ditty is now available to buy from Ormonde Jayne in Harrods.
