1. Neroli Portifino soap bar
£25, Tom Ford, selfridges.com
Tom Ford isn't a man to do things by half and this soap is a mixture of citrus notes and floral fragrance. Old-school glamour.
2. No 88 soap

These soaps from Czech & Speake have a woody combination with notes of rose and sandalwood – a full-bodied aroma.
3. Blue Dragon shower gel

The cedar wood in this gel is an invigorating scent to start your day, while the bamboo helps soothe and soften the skin.
4. De-Stress body wash
£23, aromatherapy- associates.com/p>
A body wash that helps to relax aching muscles, this magic potion mixes rosemary and camomile to help ease the strains of the day.
5. West India Lime
Crabtree & Evelyn's triple-milled soap combines ginger, vetiver and lime. A luxurious foam is easily created leaving skin clean and refreshed.
£18, Calvin Klein 0800 083 6310
Combining a heady mix of mandarin, rum, patchouli and cognac this is a body wash that packs a real punch.
7. Shipwreck soap
This is infused with vetiver and patchouli, with a soupçon of cocoa and hand-pressed. It's an all-rounder too, doubling up as a shampoo and a shaving aid.
8. Recharge black pepper scrub
£13, Molton Brown, houseoffraser.co.uk
A spicy-smelling bar with black pepper to scrub away dead skin. It's great for all-over use.
9. Cool Water
£17, Davidoff, boots.com
Refreshing and moisturising, this has top notes of lavender and menthol. As the name suggests, this fragrance is very aquatic and produces rich suds.
10. Blenheim Bouquet Bar
Penhaligon's vegetable-based soaps are triple-milled, which means they provide a thicker, longer-lasting lather with a traditional and patrician smell.
