Quick Pick: Ortigia Zagara Orange Blossom Bath and Shower Gel

I'd not heard of Italian brand Ortigia until I received this rather pretty bottle of bath and shower gel in the post.  Founded in Sicily in 2006 by one of the original founders of Crabtree & Evelyn, the brand is now run out of Florence, using ingredients indigenous to Sicily.  This cheerful orange bath and shower gel makes use of orange blossom, tempered and deepened with a woody, spicy undertone which makes it much more sensuous than your average orange blossom scented product.

At £15, it's undoubtedly an expensive option - the bottle, whilst incredibly stylish, holds a mere 200ml of product.  As it uses a natural glycerin base, it doesn't foam up as excitedly as a product based on SLS, but it's still foamy enough for a bubble bath (albeit without mounds of foam) and effective enough as a shower gel provided you use a puff to help it lather.

If you're interested in a very good looking, lovely smelling treat, you'll find Ortigia's Zagara Orange Blossom Bath and Shower Gel at the Sugarbird Boutique, where it will cost you £15.
