I hope that you (who recieved the box) agree that July was a pretty epic Scent by Mail box, with lots of exciting new brands and gorgeous new scents included! For those who joined up to our Scent Extraordinare (£25 per month) July box you received a box with an RRP VALUE OF £42.25! (but cost you only £25 plus p&p!)
I really hope you enjoyed the July box and I am now working away to make August’s box just as special!
Potters Crouch have been in business for more than 30 years, working alongside one of the UK’s top artisan perfumers and one of the best perfumeries in France to create the most beautiful fragranced candles! These little beauties are made in St Albans, Hertfordshire and their candle tins are adorned with the most beautiful decorative sprinkles which disappear into the wax upon lighting.
Potters Crouch was a new discovery for me at the start of this year, and Indian Flowers was the first fragrance I tested from the brand. I was absolutely blown away with the fragrance throw and the quality of the burn. I couldn’t miss the chance to share this “find” with you all. I absolutely love that their tins are not only affordable but also British made, beautifully packaged, and burn for 45-50 hours which is phenomenal value!
I would recommend this in the bedroom, office or living room.
English Rosemary and Patchouli
Marmalade London Candles are lovingly made in Britain, using a blend of premium soy wax and essential oils. Whilst they have a huge library of fragrances to choose from, I decided to incorporate English Rosemary and Pachouli because of the sheer beauty of this scent! This little tin packs a very large punch and can scent even the largest of rooms very quickly! It is also a beautifully blended fragrance that is so versatile it could be used in any room in the home, although I would particularly recommend it for the bedroom or living room.
English Rosemary and Patchouli is described as“English rosemary, patchouli and cold pressed Italian bergamot combine to create an invigorating and refreshing fragrance”
Woodwick Candles, recently taken over by Newell Brands (who also own Yankee Candle) are always fabulous no matter the scent! They come in the most beautiful little jars, and as with all Woodwick products, are incredible quality, value for money and feature their famous Wooden wick which “crackles as it burns.”
Coastal Sunset is describes as “sunkissed blossoms, inviting coconut nuances, and salty ocean air capture the warm glow of the coast.”
Rhubarb and Pear
This fragrance is A-MAZING! Im guessing that everyone who received the July box opened their box to be met with the most delicious scent from this Flamingo Candle Wax Melt! It is just so strong! When testing this melt out I got so long out of it, at least 16- 20 hours! This scent is particularly useful to blitz any unwanted cooking smells as it is so powerful!
As you may or may not know, I come from a predominantly Yankee Candle background, having run one of the largest Yankee Candle online stores for over 10 years, and so I know Yankee Candle pretty well (inside out infact.) I decided to feature Clean Cotton this month as it is literally the most well-known (and loved) Yankee Candle fragrances of all time and one of their bestsellers! If you haven’t tried it to date you really should! It is clean, fresh and beautiful for any room in the home!
This is a perfect bathroom scent!
“Peony Blooms burst to life with a flourshing of bergamot, grass leaves, and rhubarb. A floral fancy of red rose, tulip, and hyacinth surrender to a woody oak foundation. The unison of notes results in total immersion of exquisite blossoms and luxuriant blooms.”
I chose to include a scented sachet in this months box as you will have just finished your Sweet Grace Scent Sachet from your first month box, and peony blooms is an ideal replacement. Fresh and clean, this scent is a beautiful addition to any room. Whilst you wont have your home heating on in this beautiful weather, I would recommend using your peony bloom sachet on a windowsill in direct sunlight or alternatively makes a beautiful (long lasting) car freshener if you pop it in the side pocket of the car or under a seat!
