It’s that time of year when grey days have taken hold of body and soul, with freezing cold days, a need for winter beauty buys and a definite longing for spring.
As well as this week marking the sunny beginning of spring, 21st March is National Fragrance Day.
Every once in a while you come across a boutique brand that means something special, and mine is Ancienne Ambiance.
Beautiful lifestyle brand Woods of Windsor recently announced a chic new look for autumn 2016. The company encompasses historical inspiration, as well as the classic floral fragrances found in an English garden. Bound up in the iconic culture of properties such as Windsor Castle, their fresh packaging and patterns are a delicate and stylish nod to all of the above.
When it comes to scents and fragrance, I am definitely drawn to simplicity. Often perfume companies can over-complicate things, but sometimes less really is more. I think it’s fair to say that Yardley London perhaps has a reputation of being a favourite for older women, yet their Contemporary Classics Collection is actually just totally timeless.
