Try a spray-cation



Great Barrier Island Flowers Kowhai and Vanilla Candle ($25) is inspired by the yellow trees on the island. Also try Pohutukawa and Pawpaw or Hibiscus and Lime.

Matakana Botanicals Lime and Grapefruit Room Diffuser ($34.90) is a citrus burst bettered only by picking up a bag of locally grown limes at the Matakana market.

Rakino Weekend eau de parfum ($149) is a male fragrance that will also appeal to women who look beyond florals. Think bracing sea air, salt spray, a splash of gin and warm woods.

Ashley & Co Tui & Kahili Wash-Up Original ($28) is so named because the kahili or wild ginger will act on you like sweet nectar on tui. You'll be drawn to the fragrant body wash.

Kio Kio Citrus Petal & Tarata Body Lotion ($29) uplifts with the tarata tree's lemon scented leaves which were traditionally strewn into thermal pools.

Banks & Co Botanicals Pohutukawa Hand Sanitiser ($7.95) is a mini-size cleanser that doesn't have the usual overwhelming chemical aroma of most.
