It’s a sad time when the last few drops of your reed diffuser all dry up. You’ve enjoyed its pleasant aroma working away in the background, keeping your home smelling fresh. And it has been a joy to start each new day, rediscovering its fragrance as you enter the room it’s placed in. But that doesn’t really have to be the end. In just the same way as you wouldn’t get rid of your printer when you’ve run out of ink, or your stapler when you’ve run out of staples, your empty diffuser vessels still have plenty of life left in them. What’s more, an empty diffuser bottle is an opportunity for you to get creative!
At Ashleigh & Burwood, we have over 25 years of experience in making homes smell amazing. We want to share our top tips for how to use your Reed Diffusers, Candles and Fragrance Lamps, to ensure their optimum performance. Allow us to guide you through our recommendations to provide your best home fragrance experience yet.
We love gifting here at Ashleigh & Burwood, especially when it involves something as personal and timeless as fragrance.
As sunny weather starts to shine through the clouds, we begin spending a lot more time outdoors relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. With the sun comes a season of outside events, from garden parties and barbecues to outdoor weddings. Little details can that have an impressive effect on the atmosphere of any event and fragrance is hugely useful in creating the perfect ambience.
Spring Equinox at the start of this week means spring has officially begun and the days lengthen, the sun begins peeking out from behind the clouds and the first flower buds poke their heads out of the earth. This transition of the seasons also brings about a change in our homes as we seek to refresh them after the hibernation of the cosy winter season.
According to Pantones Colour of the Year, green is the shade that will define 2017. Explaining their choice of colour, Pantone suggested that green reflects our growing desire for revitalisation in the face of a tumultuous 2016 and an effort to reconnect with the natural world as we become more dissatisfied with modern life.
Its December! We noted last month that November often feels like an awkward month spent in agonising wait until December, Christmas and the opportunity to get all properly festive arrives. Well that time is now!
Whilst the sun may be having trouble breaking through the clouds, we know for sure that its spring because suddenly our path has turned blue! Bluebells are springing up all over the place and were more than happy to see them again. The only trouble is, they never seem to stick around for long enough, their vibrant, dewy scent disappearing with them as quickly as they arrived.
At long, long last, winter has come to an end and spring is finally here! With the Easter bank holiday approaching, nows the perfect time to get creative and begin opening up your home to let spring in.
There are lots of lovely ways to add a touch of spring to your home (dont worry, were not going to suggest spring cleaning though if you do feel like having a spruce, check out our tips here), from fresh flowers to bright colours and light pastels, you can add instant-Spring to your home using just a few home accessories!
It's official, Christmas is on. We know, we know, it seems to begin earlier and earlier each year, but it really is well and truly on now. Dont believe us? Just glance out of your window and gaze in wonderment at the Christmas lights which have popped up on the high street. When were they put up? No one knows. They simply appear each year. Take a look at the shops, too. Theyre filling! Christmas shoppers, pop-up Christmas sections, they're all there. This divides the nation into two sides. There's the first, those who roll their eyes and point out that "bonfire night is barely over", and the second, who instinctively break into a chorus of "I dont want a lot for Christmas..." at the first sight of a bauble.
Whichever camp you fall into, if youve been hearing jingle bells since August, or if you fall somewhere in-between the two, we can all agree that Christmas is something to get excited about. Ultimately, its a great time for tradition. You may shake things up each year with a new, on-trend colour scheme, but its the personal little customs that each household honours that makes it such a comforting time, filled with nostalgia and smiles (cheesy, but true)!
