November 13, 2017,
NEW YORK—All five senses will be engaged with the newest housewares products for the fourth quarter, which were highlighted at a press event here last week.

Simplehuman partnered with several fragrance brands to offer gift packages, which pair its soap dispenser sensor pump with foaming soap from Nest Fragrances, EO and Antica Farmacista, as well as its own soap. The gift packages include two starter foam cartridges and the sensor pump. Prices vary; the Nest gift set, for example, will retail for $100.
Simplehuman also released a trash bin that opens to voice commands, after months of voice recognition development. The 58L rectangular sensor can lifts the lid when someone says “open can”—helpful when the user has her hands full. Voice activation is also available in the dual recycling bin version, and both cans also retain their motion sensor feature. In addition, the company showed an adjustable light tabletop mirror that has a hidden touchpad in the back to easily regulate the light output.
French small appliances company La Grange is entering the U.S. market. La Grange offers several styles of its well-known waffle makers, as well as interchangeable plates for making mini donuts, croquet monsieur and more. The line also includes a circular raclette, a stone grill and a yogurt maker.

For the kitchen, the new Levoop adjustable coffee leveler can also work with other foods, such as baby food or protein powder. Sage Tonic is a holistic program for wellness, targeting six commonly desired conditions—energy, focus, happiness, relax, clear head and sleep— in a color-coded system.
