ASPIRATIONAL GIFTS that blow the budget. See how the OTHER HALF LIVES …
1. Memo Paris Orient Express coffret: Russian Leather is like something from a Bond movie. It comes in a wonderful leather box and features a purse spray and travel refills along with a full size of the intoxicating eau de parfum. €980. www.memoparis.com.
2. A voucher for the new spa at the super-grand Adare Manor in Limerick. As indulgent treatments go, these have to be the crème de la crème – or rather, crème de La Mer, as it’s the only spa in Ireland offering La Mer treatments. Splash out and see what all the fuss is about. A Spa Experience in February, for example, would be €765 per room (min. stay two nights) for two nights’ bed and breakfast plus a supremely decadent Le Mer Miracle Broth experience. www.adaremanor.com.
3. We tried to think of the most extravant beauty gift we could, and came up with a bespoke perfume – made over several months working in consultation with UK master perfumer Roja Dove. This is surely the ultimate beauty experience – and will set you back around £45,000stg. More modestly, an hour’s consultation at the Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie in Harrods, London can help you discover your perfect signature scent (£150stg). www.rojadove.com.
