Saturday 24 July 2010
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.

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.
