1. Neroli Portifino soap bar

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

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

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.

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

Penhaligon's vegetable-based soaps are triple-milled, which means they provide a thicker, longer-lasting lather with a traditional and patrician smell.
