Aesop Mouthwash

It’s quite a feat to make mouthwash appealing, but Aesop have managed it with this refreshing antiseptic infused with cloves, aniseed and spearmint. We love the vintage aesthetic of the apothecary-style bottle.

Marvis Toothpaste

The vintage packaging of this 50 year -old whitening toothpaste is as hot nowadays as the original formula, with alum powder making a star turn as the special ingredient. A gentle toothpaste which, over time, ensures a megawatt smile.

A light-as-air mousse mixed with a to-die-for scent with notes of Calabrian bergamot, seringa and Lily of the Valley, make this, without doubt, the most luxurious shower gel around.

 Mason Pearson hairbrush

This hairstylist’s must-have needs little introduction, and nowadays, it’s available in almost as many different models than there are hairs on your head. What makes it special is the unique combination of boar bristles and nylon fibers which stimulates the scalp without irritating it, detangles hair and smoothes the surface of the strands for maximum shine. We couldn’t live without it.

Breath Palette flavored toothpaste

The minimalist packaging of this tiny Japanese toothpaste is a chic addition to our bathroom cabinet, the only tricky thing is picking which of the 30 flavors to go for. From grapefruit to peach, latte, lavender and caramel, it’s a tough choice, though we’d be inclined to go for their gentle, alcohol-free version.

Violight toothbrush holder

When Philip Starck updates the traditional toothbrush holder, the result is this discreet confection fitted with a UV sterilizing system. Once teeth are squeaky clean, it takes the holder a mere 10 minutes to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria. Bathroom magic.

INava toothbrush

Dentists are raving about this toothbrush thanks to its special bristles, which are all the same length to guarantee the perfect clean every single time. To top it all off, the black and white design is worthy of even the chicest bathrooms.

With its minimalist design, creative concept and three seriously chic colorways (steel, red and black) there’s not a bathroom in the land that could do without Frédéric Malle’s Fleur Mécanique. It diffuses a fresh, floral scent for heavenly bathtimes.
