Escada's Incredible Me Eau De Parfum (top right, HK$505/50ml) was inspired by the perfumer's restaurant experience in Thailand, where tiramisu was served decorated with an orchid. The scent is a mixture of creamy tiramisu and the flower's fragrance.

Aveda's Dry Remedy moisturising line (second from top) includes shampoo (HK$280/200ml), conditioner (HK$290/200ml) and masque (HK$290/125ml). Organic ylang ylang and rose geranium make up the scent and macadamia nut oil removes tangles.

Clarins' Instant Smooth foundation (third from top, HK$370/30ml) has a mousse-like texture that helps it melts into the skin.

Aromatherapy Associates' Enrich Body collection includes scrub (HK$470/200ml), serum (HK$370/200ml; bottom, far right), massage oil (HK$470/100ml) and butter (HK$470/150ml). Luxuriously textured and effective.

Origins' Plantidote Mega-Mushroom Skin-Calming face mask (bottom centre, HK$420/100ml) penetrates while increasing hydration and reducing redness. Good for dry and damaged skin.

Mac's Manish Arora eyeshadow (bottom left, HK$400/5g and Lipglass (HK$125/4.8g) offer vibrant, shocking colour combinations.
