There’s nothing like a great scent to evoke the coming of the holidays… and Le Labo’s limited-edition Candle Discovery Set is back for this special season with a new set of scents to explore and enjoy. It features three scents from the brand’s interiors collection. Encens 9: Frankincense is softened by warm and resinous amber notes, and ignited with the rich spice of clove. Petit Grain 21: This rich and elegant orange blossom blend has luscious green undertones that evoke warm Mediterranean nights. Santal 26: At once gentle, smoky and leathery, this aristocratic scent will fill your space and give it true personality.
The candles are developed with a high dose of fragrance oils, a custom blend of waxes, and wicks constructed with natural fibres to ensure a beautiful olfactive experience. They are all poured by hand in the USA.
Retails at $120. Le Labo
This beautifully crafted, decorative Rocking Horse from Fritz Hansen is a whimsical sculptural design steeped in history, and a perfect Christmas gift for lovers of Danish design. It is created from an image of an early 1946 prototype, and born out of the visionary craftsmanship ambitions at Fritz Hansen. The decorative piece is brought to life today as a tribute to the pioneering craftspeople who dared to dream big.
If your loved one is a turophile, then we can’t think of a more perfect Christmas gift than this WMF Nuova Cheese Set (2 piece). These knives are razor-sharp and tapered on both sides to ensure a smooth and straight cut every single time. The holes on the cheese hatchet and knife aren’t just for aesthetic purposes – they prevent soft cheese from adhering to the blade, so you aren’t stuck with uneven chunks of soft cheese.

Having a well-designed storage solution is the first important step to a more organised life. Sketch Toolbox from Muuto references the simple architectural lines of a house and offers various ‘rooms’ to store different things. It is cast in one monolithic piece with a handle for portability, which means it can be easily taken around the house or even to work – so there’s no excuse not to keep things neat. The versatile toolbox is made in Denmark using 100 per cent recycled plastic and comes in orange, dark blue and grey.
Retails at $99. Muuto is carried in Singapore by Grafunkt
