1. GUY MAESTRI I be­gan col­lect­ing his art­work 15 or so years ago, when he first started. I love his use of colour. 2. FLOW­ERS by Saskia Havekes of Gran­dif lora. She is an artist, and she also knows what I love. 3. BEES They’re the barom­e­ter for how we live. If we have a healthy bee pop­u­la­tion and they’re mak­ing good honey, we know we’ve got a very good and safe en­vi­ron­ment. 4. BOIS DE CITRONNIER CAN­DLE by Col­lette Din­ni­gan. I devel­oped this with Camille Goutal and Is­abelle Doyen, who cre­ate the fra­grances for An­nick Goutal. It’s us­ing my favourites — cit­rus and wood. 5. ME­LANIE GRANT I go straight to her clinic in Dou­ble Bay af­ter I get in from a trip. The Sis­ley Black Rose Pre­cious Face Oil she uses is fan­tas­tic, and I love her light ther­apy and hy­dra­tion treat­ments af­ter you’ve been trav­el­ling. 6. MY VEG­ETABLE GAR­DEN I’m al­ways grow­ing veg­eta­bles. It’s my love, and I spend a lot of time look­ing af­ter them. I try to make ev­ery­thing or­ganic and bio­dy­namic. 7. RING by Solange Aza­gury-Par­tridge. At the din­ner for the 2015 Lon­don launch of my book Ob­ses­sive Cre­ative, my hus­band Bradley saw some­body wear­ing one of her name rings and he or­gan­ised get­ting one made for me for my 50th birthday last year. 8. HAND­MADE STA­TIONERY from Venice. I love good- qual­ity pa­per and old let­ter presses. I found Gianni Basso Stam­pa­tore; they have their own presses and make the cards and pa­per. 9. L’EAU D’ARLES I dis­cov­ered this scent in a small ar­ti­san fra­grance shop in Arles, in the South of France. It’s light, el­e­gant and so­phis­ti­cated. 10. PADDING­TON ALIMENTARI They have All­press cof­fee, which I love, and Iggy’s bread, which is the best bread ever. VL
