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:

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.

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.
