In this week's online exclusive, we devise an indulgent recipe for the ultimate bath


Between work, travelling and the stress of the New Year period, it can be hard to find time for yourself. But now there's no excuse, as we have found the perfect formula for bringing the relaxing tranquility of a day at the spa right into your home, with this recipe for the ultimate bath.


Step one: light your candles. Before even getting into the bath, setting the mood and transforming the atmosphere of your bathroom is essential. Parisian perfumer Diptyque is our go-to brand for all things aromatic and stocks a particularly wide selection of candles, with fruity, floral, woody and spicy scents among the 50 you can choose from.


For the most luxurious at-home bath, Hermès definitely has you covered. Their first line of bath products is appropriately titled Le Bain and includes a three-piece soap set that is guaranteed to make your bath a special one. With its beautiful packaging and a variety of intense smells, these soaps are going to leave you relaxed and smelling incredible. The range also includes a creamy bubble bath, revitalising shampoo, hydrating balm, toning gel and soothing body milk.


To many, getting out of the bath might seem like the worst part. But not if you have the perfect robe from Frette, which provides towels and bedding to the best hotels around the world. The Peninsula in California, the Grand Hyatt in Santiago and the Park Hyatt in Moscow are some of the many stocked with its finest products. On top of Frette's Berthe Kimono Robe, make sure to stock up on the brand's indulgent Egyptian-cotton Hotel Classic towels or the Macrame Pizzo lace-trimmed towels to make sure you have the fluffy finish to the perfect bath.
