Piedmont Pedestal Soaking Tub with Lever-Handle Tub Fill
Picture this. You, a charcuterie board, and a glass of champagne (or whisky). Frank Sinatra is crooning in the background and you’re soaking it all in sitting in this beautiful bathtub. After a long hard day, this is the panacea for your woes. There’s plenty of space in there, so why not invite a guest?

Smythson Mara Large Jewellery Roll
This luxurious jewellery roll clad in printed calf leather could easily be mistaken for a wallet from some obscure, high-end brand; guaranteed to make your friends jealous. Many would opt to bring an average, old pouch to hold an assortment of jewellery while on holiday, but you’re different. You and your diamonds need special compartments to keep your rings and earrings unscathed. In this case, it’s okay to be a little extra.

Louis Vuitton Dans La Peau Fragrance
Suited for both men and women; when first spritzed, a subtle leathery scent appears, which then transcends into aquatic notes that are undeniably LV. This is followed by notes of apricot and magnolia as the perfume dries down. Truly iconic, this scent will leave you with an intensely enigmatic experience and perhaps, a few admirers too. It’s complex and multi-faceted – just like you.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow
Used to enhance luminosity under makeup, this cult beauty product can also be slathered on alone to produce a flawless dewy look, without any pores in sight. A visionary anti-ageing hybrid that’s paraben-free, this cream may shave 15 years off. Well, not really, but you’ll look as if you’re about 28 when the light hits you just right.

Bottega Veneta iPhone Case
What’s better than a weave pattern? A weave pattern by Bottega Veneta, of course. Whether you’re into muted block colours or elegant gold studs, these iPhone cases are nothing short of classics. They’re part of the upcoming FW 2018 collection, so go ahead and give your tech device some material loving.

Malacca Flask Umbrella
There’s something about secret compartments that gets us all tingling with excitement. Fit for a Kingsman agent or John Steed, this utilitarian tool not only shields you from the elements (though sadly, not bullets), it also comes with an inconspicuous flask hidden within the handle. Great for a nip on a rainy day.

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Black Edition Sonic Electric Toothbrush
Gone are the simpler days when toothbrushes were just bristles on a wooden handel, but who cares? Not when you could have an electric toothbrush with five fancy options. Not only does this very suave-looking device clean your teeth, it can whiten and polish them thoroughly too. Also, this hot shot gives you additional modes – either gum care or sensitive teeth. Now you can show off your pearly whites and impress your dentist or that cute barista next time you grab your coffee.
