The best luxury scented hand creams to save your hands this winter

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.

Chanel La Creme Main, €56

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.”

Byredo Rose of No Man’s Land Hand Cream, €33

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.

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm, €23.94

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 White Tea Hand Cream, €49

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.
