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.

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.

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.

Whilst the sun may be having trouble breaking through the clouds, we know for sure that it’s spring because suddenly our path has turned blue! Bluebells are springing up all over the place and we’re more than happy to see them again. The only trouble is, they never seem to stick around for long enough, their vibrant, dewy scent disappearing with them as quickly as they arrived.

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.
