FALLING FOR YOU

Kate Bonnett

WITH THE LAST MONTH OF AUTUMN coming up, the last of the days where you can get away with jeans and your favourite tee or cashmere sweater for those cooler nights.  Like fashion and food, styles and choices tend to change alongside the seasons. It's the same with fragrances. The time for transition has come and we're here to help you switch up your candle and perfume game for this Winter.

INTO THE WOODS
As the cool change comes around, we search for warmth within our style and food and fragrances. This means layers, rich flavours and heady notes in our scents. During the summer lighter fragrances are burned to keep a space fresh like the outdoors and to give those extra summer vibes. Swap out your Cypres de Provence of cardamom and orange blossom, to something more woody like Arabian Oud; noted with Rose, Oud Accord and Sandalwood, or No. 352 leather and cedar. These fragrances create inviting vibes into any space and are perfect for those luscious, rainy afternoons or nights in with your S.O.

APPLE OF MY EYE
Letting go of Summer doesn’t necessarily mean letting go of fruit and fruity essences. Hold on to your love for the warmer season and carry that through the cold by swapping citrus and sweet fruit notes for tamer, earthy notes of fig and musk. If you’ve been seduced by Tahitian Coconut or Sicilian Citrus, swap these out for Tuscan Fig; Earthy based fragrance with notes of blackcurrant and musk. Remember you can update your personal scent too with changing your perfume oils to suit the season.

LUSTROUS CITRUS
If you’re not so keen on the wintery weather and are constantly dreaming of summer nights and bright sky days, it’s important to keep the mood uplifted, and the light fragrances alive during winter. Perhaps you have been burning a citrus based scent until impossible. Reluctant to put away your summer memories, swap out Sicilian Citrus for something less zesty and smoother like Tunisian Mint Tea. Perfect for elevating the mood in any space... This candle has notes of refreshing spearmint, sage and rosemary; spearmint bringing freshness, and sage and rosemary creating a sophisticated fragrance along with relaxation and allure.

LA VIE EN ROSE  
Sometimes the grey palette of winter can work for our outfits but not so much for our souls. We insist that we all try to see life through pink glasses all year round, but especially persisting with this through l’hiver (the winter). Florals aren’t usually associated with winter, but in the name of fragrance they’re hard to beat. If you’ve been lusting over Tropical Gardenia, keep the floral theme going in Winter with Persian Rose. Highlighted with notes of rose water and dark amber, this seductive scent is bound to turn any space into a relaxing sanctuary.
