Spring cleaning your scents

Spring Equinox at the start of this week means spring has officially begun and the days lengthen, the sun begins peeking out from behind the clouds and the first flower buds poke their heads out of the earth. This transition of the seasons also brings about a change in our homes as we seek to refresh them after the hibernation of the cosy winter season. While it may be a little early for a true spring clean, a simple way to brighten the home is by swapping warming, winter scents to fresher fragrances for the spring.

Below are our top choices for adding the scent of spring to your home:

Soft Cotton: The perfect soothingly fresh scent for the transition between winter cosiness and brighter spring weather.

The Scented Home Soft Cotton Reed Diffuser – £14.50

Garden Mint: Spring is all about the re-emergence of nature after winter hibernation. Bring the outside in with this sweet, minty scent from our Country Garden collection, ideal for embracing the green trend in your home.

Garden Mint 250ml Lamp Fragrance – £6.95 & Peacock Feather Fragrance Lamp – £28.95

Wild Meadow: Inspired by the English countryside, Wild Meadow is a gloriously fresh floral accord that will evoke the lively nature of spring in your home.

Wild Meadow 500ml Lamp Fragrance – £12.50

Lavender: Our take on this classic scent incorporates peppermint and citrus notes for a fresh kick. Light up one of our Lavender Scented Candles in the evening to create an air of cleansing relaxation.

Lavender Limited Edition Scented Candle – £17.95

Step into our Country Garden this spring…

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.

Wash Away the Holiday Blues

Thank goodness for the heatwave, because we were seriously starting to wonder whether the holiday blues were terminal. If you, like us, have been desperately longing for the calming sea waves, the invigorating scent of salty sea air and the blissful sensation of walking along the sun-drenched seafront – we think we may have the cure.

We’ve recaptured the fresh, mineral scent of waves breaking on the shore of a glorious Mediterranean beach. Alive with salty sea air and invigorating notes of eucalyptus leaf, Sea Spray recreates the fresh breeze of the tide and the earthiness of solacing, shady trees.

The perfect accompaniment to the heatwave this bank holiday weekend, unleash the aquatic scent of the beach to transport yourself instantly.
