Die-hard Downton Abbey fan and want to feel just like a real ‘lady’? Maybe this one is for you then! M&S has announced the launch of a new Downton Abbey beauty range in the UK, following the launch of its debut range in October 2013.
Launching for winter 2014, the latest collection consists of a range of scented soaps, hand creams, body lotions and candles, perfect for treating yourself or giving as gifts (perhaps to any Downton fans who want to steal a sense of their own post-Edwardrian glamour). The new eight piece range of Downton Abbey inspired gifts will be available exclusively from October 9, marking the return of the fifth series of this period drama.
The range will be available in over 300 M&S stores throughout the UK and also on their website. Packaged in soft shades of rose-pink, vintage blue and spring green, each product is embellished with the signature Downton Abbey crest, an iconic image of the Abbey and a quote from the series. All the products are lightly fragranced with a delicate floral scent of freesia, and combined with subtle citrus notes of mandarin.
Just a few key products and sets from the range… there’s a Teacup Candle (£15), Hand Cream Collection (£8.50), Bath Elixir (£12.50), Travel Collection (£8.50), Signature Soaps (£6), Bathing Collection (£16), Cosmetic Bag (£12.50) and Luxury Collection (£50). Perfect to be placed on your classic dresser, ladies! I am not personally a Downton Abbey fan, in fact I can’t even comment as I have never watched an episode, but I have heard lots of good reviews and have many friends who express a rather large interest in the world of Lord and Lady Gratham.
