The changing of the seasons signals the start of new beginnings. As we head into the cooler months and crisp mornings followed by darker evenings begin to draw in, there’s simply no better time than now to welcome the new season into our homes. Covering the top home fragrance trends you need to know this year, discover how to welcome winter into your home with our top tips and expert advice.

Bring the Outdoors In

One of the top home fragrance trends this year is to introduce a sense of the outdoors into your home. With many of us affected by local lockdown restrictions, adding features such as house plants, flower bouquets or natural outdoor-scented candles into our home are simple yet effective ways of helping us reconnect with nature. Not only this, but adding house plants into our home helps with air filtration and have even been proven to help reduce stress levels.

With a woody and aromatic blend of balsam fir, cedarwood and a hint of spiced mandarin, our limited-edition Winter Forest fragrance makes the perfect addition to your home over the chilly winter months. Taking inspiration from the occasional sprinkling of snow which decorates our island home around this time of year, this uplifting blend of essential oils has been expertly blended to evoke the joys of the outdoors from the comfort of your own home.

Create Cosy Moments

Forget Scandinavian concepts such as hygge and fika, did you know Scotland has it’s own term for hunkering down during the cooler months? Known as ‘coorie’, this concept suggests that simple pleasures, such as nestling in at home to escape the chill of winter, curling up on the sofa with a blanket while reading our favourite book or the heartwarming joy we feel from spending time with loved ones can help to enhance our wellbeing.

So, whether you’re making a head start on your Christmas shopping list or simply seeking a moment of solitude after the end of a long week, allow the warming aromas of our seasonal Soft Cinnamon scent help you to slow down and unwind. With a warming blend of spiced cinnamon, cedar and sandalwood essential oils, this festive fragrance makes the perfect accompaniment to quiet evenings cooried in by the fire.

 A warm soft fragrance with cinnamon bark as the central theme. This sweet spice is accompanied by, and its spiciness enhanced with, hints of bay, clove, ylang-ylang and nutmeg. Woody notes of sandalwood, vetiver and cedar lend depth to the spices' warmth.
