1. Discover a new candle
You check your calendar and find out the long weekend has snuck up on you. You decide to make a quick plan. Do you:
Grab a bag and start packing for a weekend up at the cottage
Love being outdoors and never miss an opportunity to spend time at the cottage? Try the Christian Tortu Forest candle to capture your favourite natural scents inside. Never feel cut off from the scent of pine needles, tree moss, and freshly cut grass with this luxurious candle made from mineral and vegetable wax with a cotton wick.
All you need is good food, good friends, and a nice cocktail! Patio season is an essential part of summer. Bring home that summer fun by capturing elements from your favourite Pimm’s cucumber cocktail or a delicious fruity dessert with the Mor Cucumber & Casaba candle. Made in Australia, these soy wax candles invite you to turn the page and start a new chapter with their transcendent candles.
You are constantly on the move whether at work or keeping track of your family. Your top priority is picking away at your growing list of tasks. But make sure to carve out time for yourself to relax with a good book and classic scent like the Lothantique Linen candle. Simple, subtle and clean, this mineral and vegetable wax candle is delicately scented and uncomplicated for your busy lifestyle.
You love hosting and getting to spend time with your family. Capture the beautiful backdrop of your garden with the Miller at Bertaux In the Garden Candle. Designed to capture memories, this fragrant candle combines thyme, peppermint, rhubarb and sap so you''ll always remember those precious summer get togethers.
2. Try a new soap
You are itching to go out shopping. With non-essential retail opening up again this summer, you decide to treat yourself with:
You love art and beauty. Fashion and aesthetic are key factors in your decisions. So you can’t go wrong with an adorable Que de l’Amour Heart Soap as the perfect accent for your bathroom. Triple-milled and infused with shea butter, this romantic scent is a pleasant mix of white musk and patchouli.
Your kitchen is a sanctuary. You’re always look for the latest trends and experimenting with new cooking techniques. For the food lover and chef at heart, try the Belle de Provence Olive & Verbena soap. Infused with olive leaf extract from Provence, this herbal fragrance is fresh and uplifting.
Being in nature is your happy place. You love all things natural and organic. Consider trying this unique Tadé charcoal soap created from cauldron-cooked virgin olive oil and plant-based activated charcoal. Great for oily skin and made from ingredients with 99.87% natural origins, which are sourced from organic farms.
Books and tea go together like iced tea and the beach. Enjoy a fun beachy read and wash away the grains of sand later with the Lothantique White Tea soap. This long-lasted French milled soap is perfect for any skin type with a crisp floral fragrance.
3. Pick a new fragrance
As border restrictions gradually begin to loosen, many of us are already dreaming about our next vacation. What is the next destination on your list?
Missing the charming countryside and Mediterranean of France? Us too. Indulge your senses with a classic scent inspired by the founder of Lothantique, Joséphine Mouranchon, and her childhood in rural Provence with Fleur des Iles. This fresh and sophisticated scent has notes of vanilla flower, jasmine and sandalwood.
Vacation all you’ve ever wanted? Same. We might not be able to go (-go) just yet, but we can imagine ourselves in Mexico sipping a cocktail with the Miller et Bertaux Piemiento Perfume. This contrasting scent has the warmth of chilis and sweetness of saffron so you can taste the alcohol and crushed ice while gazing at a beautiful sunset.
It’s the perfect opportunity to explore another part of our beautiful country instead of waiting for international borders to reopen. Try looking at the sun from a new perspective with a simple and warm scent like Amélie et Mélanie Soliel. This delicate perfume has notes of star anise, white flowers and vetiver to recall uncut grass on a warm summer day.
Summer sun with a glass of wine in hand? Yes, please. Conjure up fonder memories of touring a winery abroad with the Laboratorio Olfattivo Di-Vino Room Spray. This sparkling fragrance has notes of vineyard peach, grapefruit peel, black currant and smoked woods.
