Playing on the relationship between scents and memories, the collection includes Tuberoli, a fragrance blended to evoke the spirit of a romantic weekend in Rome, and Jasamber, designed with the splendour of the Northern Lights in mind. The scents are also available as body products and candles. Fragrances £40 each, at Space NK in Newcastle and www.spacenk.co.uk from October.

With all the throw-away diets being slung around ready for Christmas there is even more chance we'll start them and quit three days in. But there is one thing that we can all do to secure our path to toned bums, firm thighs and fitter bodies - it's just a little change to our shoes.

Earth shoes are designed to burn more calories than normal footwear because of Negative Heel Technology – a slight slope in the sole of the shoe that elevates the toes, meaning you walk at a slight incline.

Earth Lodge Deer boots, £125, from www.lovethoseshoes.com.

LAVERÉ, the premium anti-ageing skincare line from the creators of pioneering natural cosmetics brand lavera, re-launches with an ultra luxurious new look and four systems - Hydro (for skin 25+), Intensive (for skin 35+) and Solution (for skin 45+) for the face, and Body Effect for the body. Packed with innovative, skin-loving organic and natural ingredients to suit skin’s changing needs, the products unite 100% certified natural cosmetics with 100% hi-tech anti-ageing ingredients.

Energy Cool Eye, eye gel roll-on, £27.50 / 7 ml from department stores or www.lavere.co.uk.

Tried and tested by Tibetan monks for centuries, this hangover cure is a great novelty stocking filler.

This ayurvedic pillow contains Himalayan herbs used by traditional healers to cure headaches, purify polluted minds, promote mental alertness and concentration, treat nausea, restore strength and courage and ward off evil spirits.

The fresh and pungent herbs are enclosed in a cotton pillow liner and removable gold dupion silk pillow.

Located in Kathmandu, Nepal, Wild Earth supports women's and rural economic development.
