What's Inside?

Nestled in raffia and tucked in a an ivory gift box with a hand-drawn letterpress card are:

GARDENIA & JASMINE BAR SOAP:French-milled bar soap is infused with organic dried jasmine flowers for a fresh and delicate aroma. Gentle yet effective for the bath or hand washing. By Gianna Rose Atelier.

BREATHE SHEA BUTTER HANDCREME:  Rich shea butter and macadamia nut oils combine to form a crème so decadently addictive Oprah Winfrey named it to her Favorite Things list.  Ruffled peony and white lily overlaid with sheer hints of grapefruit, orange, violet and lavender create a fresh, clean scent. An aesthetic treasure inside and out.

A.D. 1404 ITALIAN NOTECARD SET:  Chic notecards are crafted of deckled papers with a Corona felt finish for an exceptionally smooth writing surface. The line is a collaboration of Rossi 1931 and Cartiera Magnani, whose paper was chosen for Napoleon Bonaparte’s and Maria Luisa D’Austria’s wedding announcements.  Set of six cards with envelopes.

McCREA’S CLASSIC CARAMELS:  Handcrafted candies are slow-cooked in small batches in a family-owned company passionate about using pure and natural ingredients to please caramel purists. Nine plump pieces come individually wrapped, just like in the good old days.
