ONE of our favourite bou­tique ac­com­mo­da­tion col­lec­tions, Fir­m­dale Ho­tels, has a new ar­ray of in­room bath and skin­care prod­ucts in retro zigzag pack­ag­ing cre­ated by co-owner and de­sign guru Kit Kemp. The Rik Rak col­lec­tion was launched to tie in with the open­ing last year of the ninth Fir­m­dale prop­erty, Lon­don’s Ham Yard Ho­tel (with apart­ments and a glam re­tail precinct that in­cludes an out­let from Australia’s Di­nosaur De­signs). The lus­cious line-up cov­ers body wash, hand lo­tion, hair prod­ucts, lip balm and a choice of three scented can­dles (pic­tured), in­clud­ing a stress-bust­ing laven­der eu­ca­lyp­tus, also avail­able as a linen and room mist. Gar­de­nia green leaf is the sig­na­ture white flo­ral fragrance, with notes of am­ber, lily, vanilla pods and rose buds — all very English gar­den party, and avail­able at the com­pany’s chic ho­tels in Lon­don and New York or on­line from Brum­mells of Lon­don. A 295ml pump pack of hand lo­tion, for ex­am­ple, costs 22 ($42) plus postage. More: fir­m­dale­ho­tels.com; brum­mell­soflon­don.com.
