Founded by Sam Jameson, this bath and bodycare brand does things differently. Not only is Soapsmith all about tapping into the power of scent but all of its London-made products come inspired by the city’s creativity. The Walthamstow hand wash, for instance, pays reference to William Morris and his iconic ‘the strawberry thieves’ print.
It might be inspired by the Mediterranean, but Templespa’s roots are firmly grounded in the UK – and have been since spa seekers, Liz and Mark Warom, thought up the brand some years ago.
