THE IN-TRAY

Spring fling or winter warmers? The best home scents inspired by the seasons

As we yearn for spring’s impending return – counting the blossoms from our window as we dream of the picnics, patio-parties and beer garden spritzes to (hopefully) come, we’re playing mother nature in our own homes. Hand-picked by us, these seasonal and transeasonal scents bring on a feeling of optimism and enable us to recreate or lean into the seasons that we love best through scent.

If you love the optimism of spring, light D.S. & DURGA TUBEROSE MYRRHDER CANDLE

This candle emulates the feeling of going for a walk around the block at dusk in the springtime. It’s just warm enough to get away with a t-shirt, and you get a waft of the white florals blooming in neighbours’ front yards as you stroll past. It’s the comfort and familiarity of cacao, vanilla and amber, and the seasonality of tuberose. It is heavenly and the perfect post-work/mid-bath/pre-bed scent for your home.

If you crave summery beach days, light MAISON MARGIELA REPLICA BEACH VIBES CANDLE

As the peeping sun and slightly warmer wind teases us with a taste of summer, REPLICA Beach Vibes Candle hits fast forward on the good vibes without having to bear the surprise of an icy, premature ocean dip. Think the fresh zestiness of bergamot, pink pepper and lemon, the sunscreen-y-ness of coconut milk, and notes of earthy, sandy cedarwood.

If getting cosy in winter is your thing, light DIPTYQUE FEU DE BOIS CANDLE

Favour cosy, wintery nights over long summer days? Sit in the simmer of winter that little bit longer by putting a match to Diptyque classic, Feu De Bois candle . Rare woods, blazing embers and smoky lapsang tea meet in this candle to recreate the feeling of sitting near an open fire on a calm winter’s night. Just ask John Mayer.

If you could sit in an old library for hours, spray BYREDO BIBLIOTHÈQUE ROOM SPRAY

Another one for the winter-leaning, Byredo’s Bibliothèque Room Spray— a lighter, more controlled candle alternative – delivers on the cosy, comforting sensation of a traditional wood-panelled library, filled with leather-bound books and lived-in armchairs. Layers of plum, peony, leather, patchouli, vanilla and musk make this spray equally soothing as it is luxurious.

If you love the journey through the seasons, light JO MALONE LONDON ENGLISH PEAR & FREESIA CANDLE

If lingering between seasons is your thing, we urge you to breathe in Jo Malone London’s English Pear & Freesia Candle. The sweetness of ripe fruit – pear, quince, and rhubarb – harmonises with blossoming freesia and rose, which is then grounded with patchouli, amber and white musk. It’s the type of scent that will take you on a journey through the seasons, and will create a positive mood inside your home no matter the weather outside.
