After a long day of driving, eating, typing and shopping, silky hands are more of a fantasy than a reality. But in our quest for super-soft, fragrant fingers (what could be more feminine?) we stopped in at the Jo Malone store in Cape Town for a much-needed pampering session at their Tasting Bar. Take a seat at the chic counter and choose your favourite fragrance and match it to a different perfumed body cream – the combinations make fabulous scents! Then sit back with a glass of sparkling wine or a cup of Italian coffee and enjoy a soothing hand and arm massage. You’ll leave smelling delcicous with silky soft skin and relaxed muscles. And best of all, it’s absolutely free! So book now at Jo Malone V&A Waterfront (021 425 2258) or Stuttafords Eastgate (011 026 4759) and indulge in a pamper party with your BFFs or a spot of pre-Valentine’s Day indulgence.
