1. Pottery Barn Hydrocotton Towel ($22)

Made in Turkey, this quick-drying towel topped 39 others in a recent Good House­keeping showdown. A special weaving process results in a cotton towel that "feels plusher" and "absorbs more." Available in 10 colors. Buy it at Pottery Barn.

2. Christian Dior Figue Méditerranée ($85)

The ideal bath begins with the lighting of a scented candle, and when this House of Dior product is burning, you'll feel as if you're soaking somewhere near a fruit-laden fig tree warmed by the Mediterranean sun. Buy it at Dior.

3. Kohler Iron Works Historic Bath ($2,544)

You'll need a claw-foot tub, of course. This elegantly modernized throwback offers excellent back support and has a slip-resistant floor. Like the classics, it's enameled cast iron. Buy it at Amazon.

4. Susanne Kaufmann Oil Bath for the Senses ($96)

5. The Ritz-Carlton Waffle Terry Robe ($106)

"There is nothing quite like slipping into a soft bathrobe in your hotel room after a long day of travel." Now that Ritz-Carlton sells its products online, you can feel "heaven on your skin" without leaving home. Buy it at Ritz-Carlton.
