BE AU T Y For daytime, moisturisers with SPFs are my priority, but it is at night that I like to dip into different creams to test which best comes to my rescue. This month, I’m very taken with 111 Skin’s Space Anti Age Night Renewal Cream. While lactic acid gently exfoliates, plumping hyaluronic acid helps skin look and feel super-smooth. In short, it adds extra meaning to beauty sleep. 50ml, £170

A fragrance with oriental, woody and spicy aromas, Guerlain’s Santal Royal is spot-on for the new season. Starring the mystical note of sandalwood, with neroli and cinnamon in the top notes and amber and leather in the base, it’s both elegant and sensual, especially with the hint of musk that adds even more warmth to the composition. For me, it’s an evening scent, although I could imagine it cheering up grey days – as if cosying up in a cashmere wrap. 125ml, £125; exclusive to Harrods

It also contains anti-ageing ingredients from the skincare range so your complexion is being cared for as well as being perfected. 30ml, £65; exclusive to Harrods
