Here at List for Life, we are self-confessed product junkies. We love nothing more than hearing about and sharing our favourite beauty must-haves. Each week we’ll be offering up the 6 breakthrough beauty products that we want you to know about.

This week we’re looking at soothing and smelling, with some winter essentials to have in your handbag or at the ready when you get home. Whether it’s a soothing candle or the perfect scent, these are the 6 products we love this week.

1. Escentric Molecules 

This is the fragrance everyone wants to know about, or they will do once they get a whiff. The perfume melds with your natural pheromones so that everyone who wears it will create a different scent, so you’ve got yourself a bespoke fragrance with just one spritz. Perfect if you’re sick of smelling like everyone else and want something a little more unique, without having to look too far.

The perfect scent to get in the festive spirit without breaking out the tinsel, this Sanctuary candle is great for creating a relaxing atmosphere at home. If you like a candle with a slight spice then this is the one for you, with the distinctive bark scent combining with sage to create a smell that is warming and soothing during the winter nights.
