A Guide To Spring Scenting
It’s been a long time coming, but spring has almost sprung – and that spells new beginnings! So say goodbye to those dreaded cold, dark winter mornings, and get ready to welcome longer, lighter days and warmer weather.
Traditionally a time of renewal and regeneration, spring is when we start shopping for light, bright, new-season looks. But it’s not just your clothes that need an overhaul when the clocks go forward. Spring is the ideal time to update your interiors fragrance wardrobe too. It’s likely that your heavier winter luxury home fragrances won’t work nearly as well as the temperature rises. The good news? It’s time to treat yourself to some lighter, fresher luxury scented candles and luxury wax melts. Not sure where to start? Worry not, we’ve got you covered. Read on to discover some of our favourite interiors spring scenting suggestions.
Choosing the right fragrance for your kitchen
Did you know that fragrance is classified into different types of families? To help make it easier to find the sort of scents you like, we’ve categorised our luxury home fragrances into six different families: Citrus, Floral, Fresh & Clean, Fruity, Sweet & Spicy and Woody.
Floral home fragrances have always been a popular way to welcome the warmer weather, and we think they are an excellent choice for any kitchen. If you’re a fan of seasonal blooms, we recommend our Cosy Aromas Spring Awakening 110g Wax Melts. They feature a gorgeous combination of spring flowers, natural patchouli and white cedar that’s really revitalising and uplifting. If you prefer more potent florals, try our Cosy Aromas Flowerbomb 110g Wax Melts instead.
Why not make good kitchen hand hygiene more of a pleasure with our Cosy Aromas soap bar collection? The Neroli & Ylang Ylang soap is enhanced with notes of jasmine and orange blossom, for a spring-time scent that’s sweet, delicate and dewy. Its moisturising formulation will counter any winter-induced hand dryness, too.
Choosing the right fragrance for your living room
Citrus scents are renowned for their mood- and energy-boosting abilities. Zesty and zingy, they’re a great way sharpen the senses and bring the outside into your living room for spring.
One of our favourite Self Care Co candles is the New Beginnings – Lemongrass, Wild Orange & Mint Aromatherapy candle. This genius blend of citrus ingredients, with a hint of mint, manages to be uplifting without overpowering.
If you prefer luxury reed diffusers to luxury aromatherapy candles, do browse our Wax Lyrical diffuser collection. The Lemon Grove Diffuser is a sparkling citrus scent enhanced with a dash of fresh verbena. If you love lemons, try our Wax Lyrical Lemon Verbena Tea Lights too.
Choosing the right fragrance for your bathroom
Your bathroom is one of the hardest working rooms in your home. So it definitely deserves some spring-time TLC! Part of the Fresh & Clean fragrance family, our Yankee Candle Clean Cotton Large Jar Candle gives off a wholesome, fresh yet subtle scent that evokes sun-dried laundry blowing in the breeze, finished with a hint of lemon and white flowers.
For those occasions when you need a fast burst of revitalising fragrance to neutralise any odours, reach for our Wax Lyrical Sea Breeze Room Mist. A quick spritz or two of this will instantly transport you to the coast. Clean, watery notes blend beautifully with woods and a bright, floral heart to deliver a speedy, seasonal, oceanic-inspired refresh.
Choosing the right fragrance for your bedroom
Your bedroom should feel a bit special – a private place where you go to sleep, relax and recharge. Lots of people find it harder to get a good night’s rest in spring when the sun rises so early. The solution? Our Owen Drew Candles’ clever sleep and dream collection.
The Owen Drew Dream Luxury Candle never fails to set the scene for slumber, thanks to its blend of sleep-inducing ingredients, which includes calming chamomile and lavender, both well known for their ability to help people relax and drift off. The same aromatherapy fragrance blend features in our Owen Drew Dream Natural Soy Wax Melts – perfect if you prefer wickless candles.
Serious lavender fans are sure to love our Owen Drew Sleep Luxury Room Mist. This formulation features a higher concentration of natural lavender essential oil. We like to spray it around our bedroom, and all over our bedding, before turning in for the night, to really maximise its soothing, sleep-inducing effect.
