Our top picks of fabulous fragranced gifts for Valentine’s Day

We love gifting here at Ashleigh & Burwood, especially when it involves something as personal and timeless as fragrance. Fragrance is intrinsically linked to our memories and the perfect fragranced gift stays with the recipient for years, the scent always reminding them of a treasured moment.

With just under a week to go, here are our choices for beautifully scented gifts to share with your loved one on Valentine’s Day.

Best Scented Candle: Peony Blush Candle – £18.00

The warm glow of candlelight is well-known for its romantic ambience while flowers are a go-to Valentine’s classic, so a floral scented candle is a sweet nod to the traditions of the holiday. Blossoming peonies like those found in this fragrance from our Artistry Collection are a popular fragrance trend and a beautiful, modern alternative to the rose.

 

Best Gift Set: Rose Bud Fragrance Lamp Gift Set – £37.95

This glittering hand-crafted Fragrance Lamp, decorated with a mosaic of dusky crimson and romantic rose glass, would be a fantastic gift for any lover of sparkle and shine. Beautiful and with the power of impressive fragrance, this iridescent Lamp is paired with the airy, nostalgic scent of Fresh Linen.

 

Best Floral Fragrance: Tea Rose Diffuser – £12.00

The classic symbol of romance is given a fresh twist in this reed diffuser from The Scented Home. The velvety scent of rose is blended with lily, narcissus and geranium to create a soft, romantic scent perfect for showing your affection on Valentine’s Day.

 

Best Wild Card: Pinemingos Candle – £38.00

No red roses or love hearts here, but this Wild Things Pinemingos candle is a great choice  for any wildlife lover or fan of quirky, exotic design. Featuring a super-trendy collage of funky flamingos and tropical pineapples topped with a gleaming old lid, the scent of coconut and lychee conjures up a beautiful island getaway.

Fragrance for spring events

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.

Thanks, Teach!

They teach your children many of the important skills they need to help them progress through life, pay close attention to and aid in their development, and most importantly, take them off your hands for a good six hours a day.

It’s safe to say that by the end of the school year, your child’s teacher deserves a rather big ‘thank you’, but what can you give that’s both special and thoughtful, without clogging up their desk with the usual trinkets?

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.

Let The Sun Shine This Weekend!

British weather is notoriously unpredictable, if it weren’t we’d have nothing to talk about, so we’ve learnt to accept it. Clearly we’ve been getting complacent as this week… it snowed. It actually snowed. In April. In spring. We’re not sure what to think, or who to believe – not the weathercaster, that’s for sure.
