How to Scent Your Home for Spring
A Year in Fragrance
Spring is a season for starting anew and embracing brighter mornings and lighter evenings. With the air laced in a medley of crisp, earthy scents, it’s a fitting time to elevate your environment with coordinating aromas. Spring invites myriad citrus, floral and gourmand notes to dance about the home. From Seville’s oranges to Yorkshire’s rhubarbs, here’s how to select a fragrance to enhance your home’s character.
Set aside an afternoon to efficiently tidy your home.
Tidy and spark joy
A classic spring clean can instantly lighten the home, decluttering your space of the cosy, nesting essentials that were key throughout winter.
Marie Kondo’s revolutionary KonMari method of tidying teaches us to show gratitude for our belongings and recognise when our possessions no longer serve us – or spark joy. Set aside an afternoon to efficiently tidy your home, discarding anything that does not spark joy, stowing away blankets and throws, and begin the season with a clean slate.
Envelop your home in a symphony of elegant notes.
Breathe new life into your home with greenery. Houseplants improve air quality by capturing pollutants, helping us to breathe more easily and awaken the senses with their naturally fresh aroma.
Further the effect with our Lime & Patchouli Hand Care Collection. An uplifting, zesty fragrance, it subtly brings eucalyptus and elemi notes to the kitchen, and cleanses with naturally deodorising lime.
Introduce refined fragrance
Fragrance has been used throughout history to delight the senses. The ancient Greeks often freshened their rooms by scattering mint leaves upon the floor, while the ancient Chinese considered the burning of incense as a method of disinfecting the home.
Envelop your home in a symphony of energising notes with our Orange & Bergamot Aroma Reeds. A sophisticated décor statement, allow our carefully crafted Aroma Reeds to fully absorb the scented oils and gently diffuse throughout the room for a constant flow of fragrance.
Spring is the perfect time of year to fill your home with flowers. Our favourite in-season British blooms include tulips, roses, peonies, freesias and primrose. Gather a selection of stems in a glass vase to draw life and light into high-traffic rooms.
Coordinate the fresh scents with our floral fragrances – Delicious Rhubarb & Rose is sweetened with gentle pink rose and vivacious rhubarb in homage to the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
The finishing touches
Finally, our Home & Linen Mists are ideal to top up a fragrance for day-long appeal. Intricately composed to instill soothing aromas to your home, mist liberally amongst linen and into the air.
In the evening, bring the outdoors in with our refreshing Sweet Harmony Mini Candle Collection, a trio of mini scented candles that uplifts the home for complete sensory indulgence.
