‘Lover Lamp’ – £4.25
A heavenly scent of orange and vanilla the Lover Lamp is true indulgence at its best. Decorated with tiny red hearts, it’s basically the definition of love.

Run under the tap and watch the bubbles emerge.

This is basically a thin piece of card that when in contact with water will lather up and explode with scent and bubbles that you can rub all over your body. The card says ‘Kiss me Quick’…so be careful who you give it to! Flavoured with fresh apple pulp and Ylang Ylang Oil.

Want to be the perfect, romantic partner? Or is Prince Charming simply your spirit animal? Then a bottle of this should do the trick.
