Most fragrances are as divisive as Marmite. But we haven't met a woman yet who doesn't fall for Liz Earle Botanical Essence No. 1. (And that includes most beauty editors.)
So if you're looking for a goof-proof scent choice for a friend/relative this Christmas, this uplifting creation - which is 98% natural - is an excellent place to start.
But to make it even more alluring, Liz Earle is offering a complimentary engraving service (initials on the cap, words on the side - within reason!) at various locations. (That's Liz Earle the brand, not Liz Earle the person. She may be the living embodiment of Superwoman as far as we're concerned, but she's sensibly leaving this to the professionals.)
The dates and times are below (click on the locations for the full addresses). Just engrave them in your diary, and pop along.
