Summer in the UK can be a somewhat… testing time. From scorching heat and glorious sunshine in the morning to sudden, unexplained torrential rainfall in the afternoon, the best way to survive a British summer is to expect the unexpected. And to dramatically lower those expectations.
Whatever the weather (and as the last few weeks have proved, it really could be anything), you can induce that summer feeling by filling your home with the familiar scents of the season. Unsure of the perfect summer feel-good fragrance for your living space? Check out our Top 10 Summery scents!
