Lovely liquid hand soap recommendation?

I'm looking for recommendations for something lovely smelling for a guest bathroom.

I have just bought the l'occitaine verbena one and it smells like cat wee-I really hate it! It was quite expensive as well!

Can anyone recommend one that actually smells nice-fruity, maybe?!

There's loads of lovely ones in TK Max

Molton Brown Comice pear and wild honey - divine

Waitrose ginger and Clementine. Cheap too!

Jo Malone or Milton Brown

^ Milton not Milton hmm

Oh FFS. You know what I mean...

I've got a nice Roger and Gallet rose one

Le Petit Olivier. It's a French brand but available from Ocado. Rose, olive and verbena are all lively. Five pounds and lasts forever.

Jo Malone English pear and Freesia is divine but expensive. Lasts ages though

Get a lovely bar of soap instead? Muuuch better for the environment. Try TK Max or Lush.

The Method ones are nice and reasonably priced

The sweet 'flavoured' ones - marshmallows, fruit salad, love hearts I think smell really nice. Only £1 and you can use the money you save for a really nice soap dispenser

It's carex that do them.
I like the strawberry laces for fruity ones and the cola bottles! Depends on your guests I guess!!!

Another vote for Roger & Gallet. Unsurpassed, especially the Jean Marie Farina scent.

L'Occitane also do a beautiful lemon scented one that I treat myself to every so often called Welcome, it smells like sunshine to me.

Avalon Organics - either the lavender or lemon. I buy them from Amazon, or sometimes see them in TK Maxx. They are lovely.

I usually get them in TK Maxx so it depends what stock they have. There are often nice Italian ones which look quite attractive, but my scent choices probably wouldn't be the same as I like the Verbena one you've already bought!

I absolutely adore the L'Occitaine Verbena one....

yawning801 Tue 07-Nov-17 16:46:03

Molton Brown Lime and Patchouli. Absolutely divine! And whatever you do, steer clear of the weird Chocolate Orange/Bubblegum/Strawberry Laces flavoured ones! <boak>

The big bottles of French hand soap in TK Maxx are great, and look stylish too. I have been known to refill them with
the Waitrose Clementine one!

Method Sweet Water is soft and fresh and delicate.

Not at all fancy but Soaper Dooper shea butter and vanilla hand wash is lovely. Smells a little like cake and leaves my hands very soft, unlike a lot of them which dry my cuticles out. Good ingredients, last ages and available in Tesco.

I also like Espa bergamot and jasmine hand wash. It doesn’t contain soap and smells really nice. I have the matching hand lotion next to it. Looks nice sat out on the basin too.

EnidButton Tue 07-Nov-17 17:03:49

Espa one smells very citrusy btw.
