Creed Original Vetiver - £110/ 75ml Selfridges 0800 123400
For me, vetiver is the noblest, earthiest and most sensual fragrance notes there is and also one of the most masculine. I've tried absolutely all the vetiver fragrances on the market and this is still by far the best and the longest lasting. I pray nightly that it'll never be discontinued!
Shiseido Men Cleansing Foam - £18 - Stockist 0207 313 4774
This low key men's grooming brand might be short on column inches but are big on great products. This cleanser is gentle enough for even the most sensitive of skins, lasts ages and comes in one of the sexiest tubes imaginable (you need to squeeze it to appreciate it!).
Liberty Lavender & Eucalyptus soap - www.liberty.co.uk
The humble bar of soap is so unfashionable thesedays but I wouldn't be without this one. It's, chunky, gets your bod clean and smells wonderful. I love lavender soaps anyway but the beauty of this one is that the eucaylptus removes the 'old lady' edge so there's absolutely no danger of you smelling like someone's nan.
