Sometimes something so very, very simple can make us so very, very happy.

Like a new hand cream.  But especially, this hand cream.  And if you share our affection for the fresh, sweet scent of orange blossom, it’ll probably make your day, too.

La Maison des Senteurs Fleur d’Orangier Hand Cream ticks all our many other hand cream boxes.  Doesn’t take long to sink in.  Doesn’t leave hands greasy, but soft and moisturised.  (We’re pretty keen on the fact that the lightweight, handbag-friendly tube’s made of 25% recycled plastic, too.)

But really, it’s the fragrance – oodles of orange blossom and a touch of petitgrain – that seduced us.  So light, uplifting, cheery – and pretty-pretty-pretty…

Where are you holidaying?

Capri?  Crete?  Cornwall?

Even if you’re not going away, this to us is a vacation-in-a-jar.  Tom Ford Neroli Portofino is just about the most exquisite orange blossom eau de Cologne-style fragrance we’ve ever spritzed (also available as a new Eau Fraiche Body Splash) – and this is our favourite way to enjoy it.

It’s brilliantly body-buffing, nourishing skin with a blend of grapeseed oil, olive fruit oil and date seed extract, so that you don’t really need to moisturise afterwards.  And for hours, you get wafts of the heavenly Tunisian neroli, Sicilian lemon, mandarin, bergamot and rosemary scent.  (Which also has a teensy undertone of warming amber, to soften the zestiness.)

We concede that the whacking great jar is almost as expensive as an Easyjet flight to Italy – but this sublime scrub is definitely on our ‘Dear Birthday Fairy’ list…
