Save your skin

Founded by two chemists with babies who suffered from eczema, Maison Boo was created to make affordable, chemical-free organic products. Four years later, the brand now includes two ranges for babies and one for pregnant and new mums. Organic Splashy Strawberry Body Wash was the first product to launch and is still a signature of the brand. Its organic ingredients are grown on a farm in Britain and it is registered with the Vegan Society. HK$128 at Maison Boo, Unit A, G/F, 25 Caine Road, Mid-Levels, tel: 2544 6288

Scent on a journey

French baby brand Kaloo has come up with a range of perfumes for young children. Designed for travel, the scents include one for boys, one for girls and one called Kaloo Dragee, for both. The latter has almond and vanilla hints and sits in a white car. HK$200 at Kaloo, shop 304, 3/F Prince's Building, tel: 2522 7770

Beans burn clean

Made from sustainably grown soya beans and other environmentally friendly materials, Kobo candles also feature lead-free wicks that burn cleaner. Scents include vanilla, fresh currant, water mint and golden mimosa. From HK$220 at ecols.com

To be sniffed at

Children love discovering things and adore silliness, so a set of scratch and sniff stickers is perfect. These come in numerous flavours including strawberry, bubblegum, chocolate, pizza and popcorn, and there's even one called stinky. HK$35 at Seed, shop 219-220, Yun Ping Road, Causeway Bay, tel: 2577 0721

Niff in the bud

From Provence in southeastern France, L'Occitane creates grooming products made from locally grown herbs and flowers. Its new Provencal Landscape Home Perfume bottles up the sun-drenched aromas of the region and comes with an old-fashioned pump. HK$235 at L'Occitane outlets, including New Town Plaza, shop 308, Sha Tin, tel: 2696 3788
