The clever folks at laboratory believe that fragrance can be a form of time travel – the smell of a freshly cut orange, or the ground after a rainfall can pull you straight back to a memory long forgotten. As all of their fragrances, Atlas is unisex which makes it the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys a complex and intriguing olfactory experience. £65
With colourways straight out of a Wes Anderson film, the hand cast and glazed tableware – including the ‘munch bowl’ and the ‘sip’ cup – by Studio Arhoj will add character to any home and make mealtimes feel like an art form. The sip cups have other uses and work just as well as a pot for a tiny plant, or for storing jewellery. From £17
Inspired by the Japanese Shinto belief that everything within nature has a soul, each Arhoj ghost is completely unique, hand fired, glazed and decorated. What they are used for is up to you – your ghost will take good care of your rings, hold down your papers or just stare at you wisely from a shelf. £16
