Red Flower Hammam - Cardamom Amber Oil

It seems like Red Flower Hammam Cardamom Amber Oil is all the rage these days and I couldn't wait to test it for myself!

According to SpaFeatures.com, Red flower hammam includes the following treatment steps and products:

• begin by purifying. to cleanse and release. Moroccan mint tea silt purifier
• intensely scrub. to deeply invigorate and enliven. lemon coffee blossom olive stone scrub
• slowly polish. to draw impurities out from within. jasmine rose rhassoul clay polish
• mist. to bring oxygen to the skin and recharge. orange quince steam room mist
• bless the body with oil. to warm, relax and scent. cardamom amber oil
• enrich. to penetrate deep moisture and illuminate. tangerine fig butter creme
• relax. to release and find rest. neroli cyprus high atlas bath soak

Red Flower Hammam - Cardamom Amber Oil is the fifth step in the traditional hammam sequence. This ritual succession has been practiced for nearly one thousand years to heal, detoxify and release the whole body.

Warm the whole body with this heady, intoxicating blend of cardamom, bergamot, rose, jasmine, litsea cubeba, ylang ylang, sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver, black pepper, sweet orange and apricot. this intensely-scented blend is high in vitamin e and fatty acid and leaves the skin calmed, nourished, glowing, relaxed and deeply scented.

Directions: Fill the palms with generous drops and blend over entire body. Blend over freshly steam-room misted skin or use as a warming massage oil. Penetrates deeply, absorbs quickly.

This is an act of devotion. Begin by purifying then vigorously scrub. Slowly polish, mist, bless the body with oil. Enrich. Relax.

So, what does it smell like?

It opens up with a bold cardamom scent, the amber seems rather soft in here as the citrus seems to burst out. The strongest floral fragrance is the jasmine and dries down to a tinge of patchouli. Lovely enough to be worn on it's own but I think I'll try layering it with TDC's Jasmine de Nuit next time. This is one item I have to include in my collection!

One thing I like to do with oils is run a tiny bit through my wet hair, the scent will last all day!

Red Flower Hammam - Cardamom Amber Oil retails for $44/2.4 oz. and is available through Beautyhabit or Spafeatures

I love scenting my hair, too. I love to spritz a tiny drop of this oil and rub my palms, then smooth lightly over the ends.
Isn't it fantastic, makes the fragrance last all day!
