We’ve burned quite a few candles in our day … and believe us when we tell you that this is among the very best. It’s worth every penny, not only because it has a burn time of over 50 hours, but because the blend of fuji apple, wild plum, green fig, sakura blossom and hibiscus are absolutely divine.

$8.50 at

The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel
Can you imagine how horrified we were when - gasp! - we once forgot to bring shower gel on vacation? Luckily, there was a Body Shop in our airport. As soon as we got a whiff of this fresh, citrusy scent, we were hooked.
