As sunny weather starts to shine through the clouds, we begin spending a lot more time outdoors relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. With the sun comes a season of outside events, from garden parties and barbecues to outdoor weddings. Little details can that have an impressive effect on the atmosphere of any event and fragrance is hugely useful in creating the perfect ambience.
Scent is big part of memory, so fragrance can help to craft special memories of whatever you’re celebrating. Scent can also enhance a party’s theme, like pairing a beachy-inspired theme with a fresh, coastal scent like Sea Breeze or replicating a floral motif in a wedding bouquet or decorations in fragrance.
With their detailed, decorative design, Fragrance Lamps are a beautiful means of scenting events. Their incredible fragrance release makes them ideal for use in large venues. There are always plenty of things to worry about planning an event, but Fragrance Lamps are flameless and provide long-lasting scent for a stress-free fragrance solution.
With a large collection of Fragrance Lamp designs to see, you’re sure to find one to fit your event.
The ideal marriage of beauty and fragrance, decorative vases are paired with exquisite scents to create a simple, subtle ambience. Reed Diffusers are perfect for creating gorgeous (s)centerpieces or placing throughout an area to add extra touches of fragrance and decoration.
For an extra sparkle, look for decorative Mosaic and Ceramic Reed Diffusers, while The Scented Home Reed Diffusers give the same beautiful fragrance in simpler bottle.
Sprinkle a little touch of subtle fragrance through an event by adding a few drops of Fragrance Oils to bowls of potpourri. You can use these oils by themselves or create your own bespoke scent cocktail by mixing a few together to find the perfect fragrance for your event.

Welcome to our Country Garden! For our Spring Collection we wanted to paint a picture of stolen moments of relaxation in dappled sunlight within a pretty cottage garden. The English heritage of Ashleigh & Burwood is important to us, so we aimed to create fragrances that reflected the timeless image of an English sunny day in the garden. As Anna our Product Development Manager explains, ‘Every element from fragrances, colours and styling has been crafted and selected to build the picture of a traditional English garden’.
We’re lucky that many of these traditional gardens are still thriving in our local landscape of Surrey. In fact, the photographs of the new collection were taken quite literally in our own back garden at the home of one of the Ashleigh & Burwood team.
At the heart of the collection are classic English garden florals of Peony, Tea Rose and Lavender, elevated into fresh, modern scents. Tempering the florals are green garden favourites such as Garden Mint, Wild Meadow and Herb Garden.

Our love of space goes all the way back to ancient times, when the Greeks mapped out the constellations of the night sky, and as the excitement over this month’s ‘supermoon’ shows, our passion for the astronomical continues today. The moon isn’t the only celestial body holding our interest, continued exploration of Mars has made headlines throughout 2016. Meanwhile, advancements like British astronaut Tim Peake’s six month-long stay at the International Space Station earlier this year makes the crossing of the ‘final frontier’ seem closer than ever.
However, for the moment we earthbound folk are content to get our space-fix wherever we can. Out of this world tales are currently filling the silver and small screens, and we’re even wearing our starry dreams on our sleeves, as designs emblazoned with celestial details parade down the runway, while clothes featuring NASA’s iconic logo have made a splash on the high street.
Space’s influence has also made its way into our homes, inspiring clean, futuristic interior design schemes, galactic prints and zodiac wall art. A simple way to add a subtle touch of the cosmic, several of our glittering Mosaic Fragrance Lamps also have interstellar inspirations behind their designs.

As the world around us becomes increasingly more connected by technology, we find it even harder to disconnect. The constant stimulation of emails, phone calls, news and images at your fingertips can be exhausting. It seems to have become second nature to most of us to always be looking at a device, leaving no real time to unplug and recharge, when in fact it’s when we’re completely unplugged that we’re at our best and do some of our best thinking. Consider how at ease you are when in the bath or shower, taking a walk or getting back to nature and embracing the elements – the pure, vitalising properties of land, sea, fire and sky. Allowing your home to become a sanctuary where you can reconnect with these elements and let yourself unplug and recharge can do wonders for your well-being.
