The best luxury scented hand creams to save your hands this winter
Hands off, these hand creams are not for sharing.
Uplift the senses (and your desk or handbag) with a luxury scented hand cream.
Inspired by the beautifying hand cream created by Mademoiselle Chanel in 1927, Chanel La Creme Main is a complete care product for hands and nails, that leaves skin velvety and just looks so damn good. To quote Lady Gaga on Ryan Murphy, the egg-shaped Chanel La Creme Main is “talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show-stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before.”
Want to test out a Byredo scent before you commit to spending a hundred quid? Pick up a scented hand cream first in Space NK or Brown Thomas. They are €33 each, and all are light, nourishing, packaged in delicious paintbox packaging and smell divine.
Perfectly pink, inscribed with a T. S. Eliot quote (“genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood”), a woody, citrusy, calming scent, a rich, hydrating formula and soon to be the most beautiful item on your desk. Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm, €25.20 couldn’t be improved upon in any way.
By Kilian’s White Tea Hand Cream is more perfume than hand cream. The scent lasts all day, the all-white aluminium metal tube is beautiful, and it’s a really affordable way to try out one of By Kilian’s most iconic scents.
