5 scents of summer: The best seasonal home fragrances

From candles to reed diffusers, we’ve chosen a few of our favourite summertime scents for your home

The smell of coffee in the morning, baking bread, freshly cut grass – which scent do you love the most? We’ve chosen a few of our favourite summertime scents to get your home smelling lovely and fresh for the season.

We all love a bit of luxury and it doesn’t get much better (or British) than strawberries and champagne on a sunny summer afternoon. In celebration of Chatsworth garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015, Laurent-Perrier has collaborated with Roja to create a gorgeous gentian flower scented candle. Champagne and flowers? Yes please.

If you’re looking for something to spread constant scent, then take a peek at this gorgeous reed diffuser from Annie Sloan. Known for her fabulous chalk paint, Annie is now venturing into home fragrance too (a fact we are delighted by)! The Versailles diffuser boasts notes of honeysuckle, jasmine and “gardens after rainfall” – we are loving the sound (and smell) of that.

Another great and super affordable option is a plug-in air freshener. Air Wick have recently launched a whole new range of multi-layered scents that develop over time. We’ve tried the Lush Hideaway and love the combination of coconut water, mint and wild berry (yep, it does sound like a delicious cocktail too).

We couldn’t resist sharing this one – an ice-cream scented candle. Yankee Candles are renowned for their plethora of fragrances and Summer Scoop is ticking all our fruity boxes.

Now you’ve got the scents of summer running throughout your home, it’s time to get your laundry smelling just as good. Comfort Intense brought out a new range of summer scents including Fuchsia Passion, which is guaranteed to have your clothes smelling fresh as a daisy.
