1 Artemisia Hand & Body Cream
The Artemisia scent launched in 2002 is a firm favourite among Penhaligon's loyal fans. This light cream for the hands and body has both floral and fruity notes.
£27, Penhaligons, penhaligons.com
2 Sweet Lemon Body Butter
The Body Shop's cocoa butter is still a cult product but for a sweet-smelling alternative try their citrus body butter.
£12.20, Body Shop, 01903 844 554
3 Vanilla & Anise Body Crème
This soufflé-like body cream is ideal for use after bathing to create a layer of scent including bergamot, neroli and frangipani.

4 Organic Shea Butter
This thick-consistency body butter is made from the fruit of African shea trees which encourage cell renewal.
£16.50, L'Occitane, loccitane.com
5 Essence Scented Body Cream
A mirrored pot contains luxurious cream with a silken texture. The lasting scent of musk, rose, iris and amber leaves skin soft with a pleasant powdery scent.
£45, Narciso Rodriguez Essence, 0844 800 3752
6 Japanese Rose Body Butter
If you suffer from dry heels, elbows and knees, this rich cream with quince extract, almond and avocado oil will nourish and soften, leaving an elegant scent of rose.
