The Body Shop's cocoa butter is still a cult product but for a sweet-smelling alternative try their citrus body butter.

This soufflé-like body cream is ideal for use after bathing to create a layer of scent including bergamot, neroli and frangipani.

This thick-consistency body butter is made from the fruit of African shea trees which encourage cell renewal.
