How to make your home smell good in Spring

Hyacinth and tulip flowers

Nature and gardens come alive with colours and scents in the Spring, intensifying our feelings for change, optimism and enjoyment after the hibernation of Winter.

Neroli (Citrus aurantium var. amara) essential oil - relaxing blossom scent of Spring

The captivating neroli essential oil is extracted from fragrant citrus blossoms of the bitter orange tree.

Sweet and bright - Mandarin (Citrus reticulata var. mandarin) essential oil

Mandarins have their origin in China, native to the countries of South East Asia and the Philippines. The fruit spread through Asia and eventually in the 19th century to the Western world.

Scents for the bathroom - creating a sanctuary of wellbeing

The bathroom, once a forgotten area of the home, is moving away from a purely functional role to becoming a space of retreat and wellbeing.

How to make your home smell good in Winter

As we approach the coldest period of the year, it's a time when we want to hibernate and seek warmth and comfort from our environment. We can use scent in our homes to foster these feelings and support us through the chilly months.

Bittersweet aromatic from Africa - Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) essential oil

Myrrh is a natural exudate or gum resin collected from Commiphora trees that inhabit the Horn of Africa and the Arabian peninsula.

Scents for your bedroom - serenity and sensuality

The bedroom is a place of shelter and pause, a private sanctuary for relaxing and romance.

Scent can play a part in a well designed bedroom to enhance our experience and can be employed to reflect its role as a restorative space.

Clary sage (Salvia sclarea) essential oil - a warm and hypnotic herbal

A member of the hardy Sage herbal family, clary sage is native to the Northern Mediterranean, growing both in the wild and cultivated.
