  1. Room by Room Fragrancing Guide

    Fragrance Inside the Home

    You probably don't have the same colour walls in every room, or the same furniture in your bathroom and your living room, so it follows that using one fragrance throughout your home may not be the best approach. Much like with the décor in your home, taking the function of each room into account is helpful when picking home fragrance. You don't use your kitchen and your bedroom for the same purpose, so the same fragrance won't necessarily work in both either. Here are some of our tips and tricks for picking a beautiful fragrance to compliment every room - but keep in mind that there are no real rules when it comes to home fragrance!

  6. Discover the beautiful variety of bergamot diffuser blends - 21st Jun 2021

    Bergamot fruit

    Bergamot is one of our favourite fragrance ingredients here at A&B. This surprisingly versatile citrus note comes from the essential oil of the bergamot orange, an unusual green relative of the lemons, limes and oranges we’re more familiar with. While you won’t find bergamot in the fresh fruit aisle, you might recognise its flavour – it’s one of the ingredients which go into creating the classic English taste of Earl Grey tea. Aside from its tea-making uses, bergamot is also a highly prized scent in perfumery as it creates as a complex citrus note which pairs well with fresh, floral and aromatic elements for a unique and pleasing effect.

  7. Why burning incense is beneficial for the mind and soul - 7th Jul 2021

    Burning Incense

    Burning incense is one of the oldest ways to fragrance the home, being used all the way back in the days of Ancient Egypt to keep rooms from smelling bad, and it continues to be used today thanks to its beneficial effects on the mind and mood as well as its beautiful fragrance. For those unfamiliar with this long-lived fragrancing method, incense sticks are made with aromatic materials including essential oils, to scent a room the incense stick is lit and then the flame fanned to a gentle ember which releases a pleasantly fragrant smoke into the air. To burn your incense sticks without mess, you’ll need an Incense Holder (£9.99) to catch any ash. One of the most evocative and relaxing methods of releasing fragrance into the home, there are several benefits to be gained through burning incense.

  8. The best scents to make your bathroom smell good - 14th Jun 2021


    It’s where we get ready in the morning, where we wash away the day in the evening and where we go to relax with a hot shower or a long bath. But there's no denying the bathroom can also attract unwanted smells from everyday use. Reduce these undesirable odours and help your bathroom smell good with our purifying Fragrance Lamps; the Lamps use an innovative catalytic process to cleanse the air of nasty odour particles rather than masking them with another fragrance.* While they're doing away with unwanted aromas the Lamps can simultaneously replace the smells in the room with a new scent to create your desired atmosphere.
