As soon as the weather heats up I love switch fragrances, and I routinely add new fragrant body care products into my daily pampering routine this time of the year. Among my very favorite brands are Molton Brown, Rituals and SENTEURS D'ORIENT, and I therefore decided to select some of my current favorites to share with you. Part of my summertime routine is to reboot my shower by filling it with luxurious scents in which to luxuriate, and therefore I primarily selected an array of cleansers and soaps, but I did include one Eau de Toilette that I have been applying right out of the shower lately.
Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Eau de Toilette ($65.00 for oz. from Molton Brown, Saks Fifth AvenueJohn Lewis £39.00 and Selfridges): Described as, "Exotic. Alluring. Escapist," this warm and rich spicy floral is an intoxicating scent punctuated by Tuberose, Lily and Jasmine commingled with spicy top notes of Cardamom, Ginger and Clove. It sits close to the skin, and when it dries down it becomes an exotic and light fruity floral. It is a perfect fragrance for the summer, and I find myself reaching for it all of the time.

According to Molton Brown,

Exotic flora. Black sands. Fragrant spices perfuming the breeze. Escape to Tahitian shores with the enticing aromas of paradise.

This alluring eau de toilette fragrance captures the floral character of tuberose and lily from the body collection. These notes are further enhanced with ginger and real rose oil in the top and middle notes, whilst cardamom balances the fragrance. Cedarwood and noble musks in the base notes ensures the aroma lasts. 

Top notes: Cardamom, Ginger and Clove.
Heart notes: Tuberose, Tagetes, Lily and Jasmine.
Base notes: Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Musk.
Rituals remains one of my all-time favorite bath and body brands, and not only are their products luxurious and delectable smelling, but they are also very affordable.
Rituals The Ritual of Dao Silence 3 in 1 Hand Scrub ($19.00 for 6.7 oz. from Rituals): I am utterly obsessed with this effective cleansing hand scrub– it is gentle enough to use every single day, and yet it has the perfect amount of grit to effectively remove dead skin cells to reveal soft, smooth and supple skin. It has a wonderful White Lotus aroma that is a delight to the senses, but it does not linger very long after rinsing.

According to Rituals,

A luxury hand scrub for daily use, which deeply cleanses, refreshes and softens your hands. Enriched with nourishing oils that are easily absorbed by the skin to restore suppleness and moisture balance. Combines the relaxing fragrance of White Lotus with the nourishing properties of Yi Yi Ren, an ingredient traditionally used in Chinese medicine.

Directions: Step 1: scrub and massage on dry hands Step 2: rinse and dry Tip: designed for daily use.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Hybrid Oil, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Silica, Dimethicone, Parfum/Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Stearate, Polyquaternium-39, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Cera (Wax), Coix Lacryma-Jobi Ma-Yuen (Job’s Tear) Seed Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera (Lotus) Flower Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Behenic Acid, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Cetyl Behenate, Dicetyl Phosphate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sorbitan Isostearate, Polysorbate 60, Jojoba Esters, Peg-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Trideceth-6, Ethylhexylglycerin, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hexyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Benzoate, Linalool, Benzyl Alcohol, Alpha- Isomethyl Ionone, Sodium Benzoate, Tetrasodium Iminodisuccinate, Piroctone Olamine, Sodium Hydroxide, Ci 19140 (Yellow 5), Ci 19140:1 (Yellow 5 Lake), Ci 42090 (Blue 1), Ci 77289 (Chromium Hydroxide Green), Ci 77510 (Ferric Ferrocyanide).
Rituals Express Your Soul Uplifting Shower Foam in Verbena & Petitgrain ($15.00 for 6.7 oz. from Rituals): This limited edition Foaming Shower Gel has a lovely, uplifting floral citrus aroma from which one detects the the most succulent Verbena. I fell in love with this innovative shower gel formula from the very first moment that I used it. It's an extraordinary take on the ordinary, and for me it makes my bathing experience anything but mundane. The unique gel to foam technology not only makes it immensely fun to use, but it exceeds my every expectation of what a body cleansing gel should do. It cleans beautifully, smells glorious, and leaves the skin lusciously hydrated and soft. Furthermore, the rich dense foamy texture lends itself to being one seriously amazing shaving cream that cleanses, softens, and gives a seriously close shave. My legs have been transformed into the most soft and silky skin imaginable, and this gorgeous product has become my favorite shave cream as well.

According to Rituals,

Enjoy the limited edition shower foam. The gentlest shower foam your skin has ever felt, combines the invigorating properties of Verbena with the floral citrus scent of Petitgrain.

Directions: Place a small amount of gel into your hand – in combination with water, the gel changes into a rich, relaxing foam sensation.

Ingredients: Aqua Sodium Laureth Sulfate Cocamidopropyl Betaine Isopentane Sorbitol Peg-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate Isopropyl Palmitate Isobutane Parfum Sodium Benzoate Citric Acid Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride Citral Linalool Limonene Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone Glycerin Verbena Officinalis Leaf Extract Potassium Sorbate.
Rituals The Ritual of Sakura Caring Shower Oil ($15.00 for 6.7 oz. from Rituals and Spring): is a wonderfully moisturizing shower oil for the body that functions in precisely the same way as the many facial cleansing oils that have recently flooded the market. You simply apply a small amount of oil to your skin and as soon as it has contact with water it emulsifies and turns from an oil consistency to a thin milky emulsion that effectively cleans the skin, and leaves it delectably soft smooth and moisturized. The beautiful scent of Cherry Blossom is a delight to the senses, and fills the air with its lovely aroma. While the scent is lovely it does not linger since it is, for the most part, washed away. Skin is left clean, soft, smooth and hydrated.

According to Rituals,

As part of the Rituals Sakura Collection, celebrate each day as a new beginning with the Ritual of Sakura Shower Oil. Filled with relaxing scents of Cherry Blossom and purifying properties of rice milk, the oil that becomes a silky soft foam when it comes into contact with water will leave your skin beautifully soft and hydrated.

This product will prolong your tan. Its intense hydrating properties will reduce pigment loss in the shower meaning you can enjoy your beautifully sun-kissed skin for longer.

Insider's tip: Our Sakura shower oil not only cleanses the skin but gives it an extra delightful treat with a sheer layer of deeply nourishing oil.

Directions: Apply the oil on dampened skin and massage with a rotating movement until it transforms into a silky soft foam, then rinse off with luke warm water.

Ingredients: Glycine Soja (Soy) Oil, Mipa-Laureth Sulfate, Laureth-3, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Parfum/Fragrance, Propylene Glycol, Laureth-7 Citrate, Laureth-4, Cocamide Mipa, Soy Acid, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Prunus Serrulata (Cherry) Flower Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Aqua/Water, Glycerin, Caprylic Acid, Capric Acid, Methylpropanediol, Lauric Acid, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides Citrate, Lauryl Alcohol Diphosphonic Acid, Hexyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Salicylate, Linalool, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Coumarin, Geraniol, Benzyl Alcohol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Cinnamyl Alcohol, Limonene, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Citrate, Sorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Ci 42090 (Blue 1).
SENTEURS D'ORIENT Hammam Soap in Oriental Gardenia ($36.00 for 7.2 oz. from Senteurs D'Orient and Net-A-Porter): is the most beautiful soap imaginable. From the gorgeous design of the soap itself to the otherworldly aroma of the gardenia used to make this ultra-luxe bar– this is the most delectable soap in which to luxuriate. The rich and creamy lather gently cleanses the skin without stripping it, while the beautiful aroma delights the senses. I love that this soap is on a rope– since hanging it allows it to dry out between uses. This is the perfect gift for someone you love, or for yourself, and the recipient will be delighted.


Turn your bathing ritual into a luxurious, holistic experience with our signature Hammam soap. Each pure vegetal soap is handcrafted by local artisans in Lebanon, air-dried for 10 days, and etched with our elegant filigree. We use a blend of precious essential oils, fine fragrance and moisturizing Olive oil, Vitamin E, Shea butter and Glycerin for beautiful, dewy skin and a relaxed spirit.
