It is often believed that the sense of smell is linked to our memories. I genuinely think this must be true. I am sure I am not the only one who have experienced a deja vu of either transported back to a particular time or place a result of smelling something.
So today, I thought I’d share three of my favourites home scents – two of which have been re-purchased, including one which was shipped directly from the US. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is?
Blanc from The White Company
The scent Blanc from The White Company is my all time favourite scent and the one that I have at home all year round. I often buy this in the diffuser form as I want my living area to be filled with this scent constantly . If candles or room spray is more of your thing, the range comes in those as well.
This scent has a very modern, clean and fresh feel to it which mainly comes from the combination of two main notes which are white geranium and juniper berry.
Sloe Gin from The White Company
I recently ran out Blanc and while I was at The White Company I decided to give one of its Christmas scents a try. There are a variety to choose from their Christmas Collection – Winter, Mistletoe, Mulled Wine, Fir and Berry and Sloe Gin – but it was the Sloe Gin that made it into my shopping basket. These are all limited edition and exclusively available for the holiday season only which was the reason why I thought I should give it a try now, otherwise I will have to wait for another year!
The Sloe Gin has a subtle fresh yet warm cozy scent from the mixture of succulent sloe berries, spicy juniper and juicy plum with a touch of coriander. I’ve had it for about a week or so now and I am loving it. Despite that it has a lot of spicy and berry notes in it, none of the scents are overpowering which means my home still smell fresh and clean but with a hint of warm and coziness thrown in.
Spiced Pumpkin from PF Candle Co
This is my perfect scent and ultimate love for the autumn and winter season. Stumbled upon while I was in New York City last year, this candle brings the holiday scent to a whole new level. The smell of ripe pumpkin, creamy butter and brown sugar topped with toasted cinnamon and nutmeg is such a classic Thanksgiving scent, which in my opinion marks the start of the holiday season and the countdown to Christmas! Unfortunately this brand is not widely available in the UK. I’ve seen some in Urban Outfitters but they don’t carry the full range. Thankfully PF Candle Co do ship directly to the UK (beware of shipping and custom duty costs – you’ve been warned!).
So there you have it. My top three favourite home scents. I may switch things up in the new year, who knows…we shall see! I hope you are all having a relaxing Sunday and have a great week ahead. x
