The rich red box is made up of 24 drawers of treats filled with everything from their iconic products – we’re looking at you Pink Pepper Bath & Shower Gel; decadent fragrances and sweet little baubles filled with some of the brand’s signature scents to hang on the tree. Embossed with a golden wreath of festive flowers and fruits, it will add a Christmas feel to your mantel or dressing table all throughout December.
Amongst the 24 gifts inside some of our favourites include:

Blended with rhubarb and yuzu, the scent is not too sweet and will up your pre-party bath routine throughout the festive season.
Without a doubt our favourite from the Molton Brown family, this cocooning scent is a warm combination of cedarwood, leather accord and tobacco absolute lifted by a hint of grapefruit – the fragrance equivalent of curling up with a good book by a roaring fire. This handy little travel refill will come in useful on all your 2023 jaunts.
A must for your everyday bag, this soothing hand cream – infused with fresh mandarin, neroli, and enduring musk – will keep your palms soft and cared for all day long.

I was so lucky to receive an advent calendar from my family in 2021 and I must say it's the best present ever! I was over the moon and thoroughly enjoyed opening the drawers each day! My calendar is being refilled for this Christmas, I cannot wait!
