    Ghol, is pure luxury a collocation that doesn't work at all, or is sheer luxury the more common expression?

    Google hits: site:.uk

    pure luxury -> 3,450
    sheer luxury -> 1,350

    Just for curiosity.

    I think both would work. "Pure luxury" sounds a bit like a factual description; "sheer luxury" given the doubled sounds of sh / x sounds more sensual, like a silky-haired cat on a fine silk cloth.
