Sun is shining, weather is sweet….aaah Summer you are so very welcomed and appreciated. Even though we may be in the mist of a global pandemic, I do think the sunnier days help to make things that little bit more bearable. I love waking up to the sunshine streaming through the windows, to be able to open the windows wide and let the warmth fill the room.
The scents of Summer to me usually involve elements of the beach and sea, in particular anything with sea salt in and I’m drawn like a moth to a flame. The White Company produce ‘Seasons in Fragrances’ in the most perfect way in my opinion. I absolutely love their fragrance collections for each of the four Seasons and I have been purchasing them Season by Season for years. My two favourite scents of theirs are Autumn and Summer. So as soon as the sunnier climate hits, I head straight to The White Company to help fill our home with the scents of Summer.
The White Company describe their fragrance as… “Like a breath of fresh air on a rugged English cliff top, with evocative ozonic notes of sea salt, eucalyptus and vetivert, which complement its coastal windswept nature. A charismatic scent to capture timeless seaside comforts”.
As mentioned any fragrance with Sea Salt in is a winner for me, plus Eucalyptus is another scent that is such a Summer staple. The White Company Summer Collection fragrance is light, airy and fresh. Nothing overpowering or heavy, and one that is quite neutral and unisex. I find the Summer Scent to be such an uplifting fragrance and one that compliments the warm sunny days and light long evenings to perfection.
With two sizes of candles to choose from, a home spray and a diffuser, its easy to fill your home or room with the scent of Summer. I love to use this fragrance downstairs, so the scent welcomes you as you enter our home. It smells divine and just lifts your mood in an instant.
CANDLES – Personally I think The White Company Candles are good value for money, especially compare to some of the other luxury brands with candles. Priced at £20.00 (and often in the sale for £16.00). I think the single wick candles make a more affordable treat or gift than some of their competitors. The larger three wick candle is priced at £60.00.
HOME SPRAY – I adore The White Company Home Sprays, we have one in each bathroom, and again I always purchase additional ones for the Season to help boost the fragrance and feel to the home. These Home Sprays are especially handy if someone is visiting. I like to spray a few spritzes around the room before they arrive and then the most gorgeous scent welcomes them. I’m personally not a fan of plug-in’s, so for me this is the perfect alternative.
DIFFUSER – Another product favourite of mine from The White Company, I must have purchased dozens of their diffusers over the years. I love their diffusers. I find them to produce a lovely soft and light scent without being overpowering. In smaller rooms or spaces the diffusers are most noticeable, but they are a great way to layer the scents with candles or the room sprays in larger spaces or rooms too. At 150ml I find them to be a decent size and I love their simple glass packaging. Unobtrusive, sleek and classic, adding a lovely opulent touch to any room.
WHERE TO BUY
You can purchase the Summer Collection directly from The White Company online or in stores, plus selected Department Stores. The Summer Collection is Seasonal so isn’t usually stocked throughout the year, and does seem to sell out fairly quickly. But their Seasonal Fragrances are certainly worth a look and are collections I highly recommend. Another beautiful fragrance and huge favourite of mine is The White Company Seychelles. I love this scent all year round but in particularly in the Summer months if you prefer a scent with more of a citrus undertone.
