1 Sweet smell of spearmint

Dubbed Mamounia No 28 and inspired by the scents of Morocco, this candle looks stunning and smells pretty special, too. Top notes of Moroccan Nanah spearmint are combined with Rose de Mai, Moroccan rose absolute, geranium, orange flower absolute, and base notes of leather, amber and honey, to create a warm, intoxicating scent.

2 A prosperous cuppa

It’s an old favourite, but there really is no better way to serve up a traditional cup of Arabic coffee than in Silsal’s Ghida coffee cup, which is emblazoned with the phrase “Al Ikbal, Al Ishraq” (prosperity and radiance) in gold calligraphy.

3 Wheat from the chaff

Wheat has long acted as a source of inspiration for creatives – and Michael Aram looked to this age-old symbol of abundance, renewal and sustenance as the foundation for a complete collection of flatware, tableware and glassware. “There is something classical about the motif, but equally charming, too,” says the New York-based designer. This chunky cheese knife set from the Wheat collection is crafted from stainless steel and natural brass.
