I’m hard to please when it comes to bath and body products – I like an vivid, fresh fragrance, a good consistency and preferably a pretty bottle.

I seem to form my strongest memories by scent – Molton Brown Warming Eucalyptus Shower Gel will forever transport me to my hospital séjour earlier this year (shame, that) and Monoi oil to my French exchange’s house, aged 12.

When I had lunch at the Beach Hut at Watergate Bay the other day (very fine fajitas btw – pic below), a trip to the bathroom was made all the more memorable by the presence of a bottle of a certain Rosemary & Bergamot hand wash with matching lotion.

The adjective I’m looking for is, I believe, lush – that’s Cornish for a very nice thing. I quickly scoured the bottle to find it is made right here in Cornwall – at St Kitts Herbery.

£9.50 for 200ml from www.stkittsherbery.co.uk (or Fifteen’s shop).
