Hairbrush, Mason Pearson, GBP90, + Add To Wishlist: This cult hair tool goes way back—we’re talking 1885, founded and made in England. Known as every hairstylist and beauty editor’s perennial favourite hairbrush, it is extremely gentle on the hair, thanks to its nylon and natural boar bristles as opposed to plastic bristles found in typical brushes.

Another benefit of a Mason Pearson hairbrush is how it makes hair glossy and healthy. The bristles distribute natural hair oil from the hair roots to ends effectively, loosening dead skin cells at the same time. The bristles is laid on a handmade rubber-cushion pad that allows the bristles to be flexible—all the details that allow for a scalp massage and better blood circulation.


Fornasetti Flora Lidded Candle

Flora Lidded Candle, Fornasetti, USD195, + Add To Wishlist: While it might be more fitting to categorise this under home & lifestyle classics, a Fornasetti candle has an alluring charm to it that makes us want to light it on days when we’re feeling indulgent. Founded by  Italian painter, sculptor, and engraver Piero Fornasetti, he was most known for his face motif (also his muse, 19th-century soprano Lina Cavalieri) design that’s emblazoned over his home décor collections.

Our favourite is this floral-printed lidded candle, crafted from a custom clean-burning blend of mineral paraffin and vegetable wax, carefully poured into a glazed ceramic vessel. The musky floral scent is the brainchild of master perfumer Emmanuel Philip.

The essence is formulated with the brand’s trademark ingredient, Pitera, a natural bio-ingredient that has vitamins, amino acids and minerals to retain the skin’s hydration, texture, radiance, and firmness.

Its formula has been unchanged for over 35 years, and is a cult favourite with celebrities, from Cate Blanchett to Chloe Grace Moretz. Score this with the help of our Boxers in Japan, stat!

GHD’s hairdryer might cost a little more than your average hairdryer, but it’s well worth it. Equipped with a 2,100W professional-strength motor and a patented removable air filter, this dryer delivers high pressure air flow for super-fast drying. Not to mention, it has ionic technology to reduce frizz and flyaways for that impeccable salon finish.

No.5 EDP Limited Edition, Chanel, EUR150, + Add To Wishlist: No fragrance is as iconic as the Chanel No. 5, touted as the world’s most timeless and first ever abstract fragrance for good reason. This time around, the No. 5 gets a revamp by way of an all-red bottle and matching case. Its eau de parfum composition is floral-based, with may rose and jasmine alongside bright citrus top notes and a touch of bourbon vanilla for a sensual trail. Definitely made for IG flatlays and beauty shelfies.
