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

Don’t leave your home fragrance in the house, it makes a great car companion!
Some car air fresheners lose their scent after a matter of weeks, offering a quick burst of fragrance on the day of purchase before rapidly fading to nothing. It’s time to get scent savvy. Your car picks up bad odours just as easily as the home – muddy shoes, mucky dogs and murky weather all see to that!

You bathe there. You shower there. There’s a sink whose primary function it is to wash your hands and brush your teeth with. Cleaning is a common theme in the bathroom. Endless supplies of water and hygiene products make it the room in the house synonymous with cleanliness. Yet sometimes (quite regularly actually, often more than once a day) this magical cleaning room can smell somewhat… not so clean.
