Let me tell you something for nothing: you won’t catch me burning a fruity fragrance in my home during Autumn. Much like colognes and perfumes, I believe that there are distinct summer scents (hello coconut and lime) and definite cold-weather fragrances (sage and sandalwood for the win).
Of course, not everyone adopts this philosophy, and some scents are true all-rounders. Vanilla, for example, I could happily have my snoz in every day of the year. It just never gets old. But the moral of the story is this: it’s always wise to bring some new fragrances in your home with the change of season.
Full disclosure: This advice is coming from someone who at last count had 39 scented candles in his home (more on that here). I must declare; I’m utterly addicted to candles and there’s nothing than can remedy this for me. I love the moodiness candles bring in a room, and I love discovering new varieties when they land.
New Fragrances from Aromatherapy Co: Utter Nostril Nirvana
My latest fits of joy and rapture have been coming courtesy of the new Naturals range from NZ brand Aromatherapy Co. They’ve been around for decades now and their collections just keep getting better and better. Bonus tidbit: they ship to Australia.
The latest batch to hit the market (and my home) are inspired by the heavenly landscapes of New Zealand. As soon as you read the names – Alpine, Coast, Forest and River – you can already imagine what each one might smell like. I feel instantly transported. Get me in front of a fire in NZ with a glass of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc immediately!
Whatever scents you trend to veer toward, one of the four is bound to have you experience nostril nirvana as well.
Four Distinct Fragrances are Available
Let me elaborate on what each scent is made up of and inspired by for you below:
- The fragrance of Alpine (Cocoa and Icy Vanilla) embraces the majestic beauty of the picturesque mountains
- Coast (Berry and Beech Leaf) acknowledges the windswept shores and secluded coves that cradle our land
- Forest (Evergreen and Freesia) is an ode to the pristine parks and vast wilderness that is the natural beauty of New Zealand
- River (Waterlily and Geranium) signifies the thousands of kilometres of coastlines and inland waterways that flow through and around the country
Products for your body, too
I love candles and I adore reed diffusers, but what I love about Aromatherapy Co is that they go well beyond these two products. It’s not just about fragrances (although they alone are pretty dreamy). The team also stock gorgeous hand cream, hair and body wash, and hand and body lotion. So not only can your abode benefit from the Aromatherapy Co Goodness, your body can too.
I have my own set at home – the Forest set – and it smells so wonderfully earthy and natural. I’ve detailed on the blog before how much I love the colder months (more on that here) so the sweet smell of sandalwood drifting through my rooms is all sorts of amazing.
