And two more on my wish list from Lush, both limited edition reissues: Turmeric Latte ("As the night draws in, snuggle up with the cozy scent of vanilla, creamy tonka absolute and a hint of spice.

It's an incredibly long-lasting scent, with excellent projection"; 30 ml for $65 or 100 ml for $130) and Hot Toddy Shower Gel ("Best served in a hot shower, this blend of fresh ginger infusion, cinnamon leaf and clove leaf oils has a spicy, comforting scent.

Also new, and I don't think a reissue, Elf Shake Shower Gel ("This fruity shake gets skin glowing with fresh, vitamin-rich apple, kiwi, grape and lime juices. A hint of fresh mint infusion brightens and invigorates, while the essential oil blend gives a fruity, sour gumball scent that fills the shower and smells delicious on the skin").

The key takeaway? Craft fragrances in line with your creative vision, rather than preconceived and partially outdated consumer taste references.
