Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Roses, lavender, and jasmine - they’re all part of one of the most popular fragrance families, florals. Although they all evoke the scents of nature’s blooming beauties, there are a whole range of different floral scents out there, from the sweet and light to the sultry and luxurious. We’ve selected some of our favourite floral notes and the scents that include them to help you find a fragrant flower to suit your home.
Peonies are like the cool younger sister of the traditional rose. These fluffy pink blossoms have been popping up all over Instagram for several years now and they’ve also made their way into some of our favourite fragrances. Sweet, feminine and traditionally floral, peony notes also have a lightness and playfulness to them that makes for an enchanting fragrance.
Lavender is a truly classic floral scent, beloved by many – and for good reason. As well as being beautifully fragrant, Lavender’s calming, nostalgic scent helps to soothe away the stresses of the modern world.
Nothing really compares to a rose, does it? This flower (and its fragrance) has endured for hundreds of years as a treasured emblem of beauty and romance. We’ve chosen three rose scents that put their own spin on the most famous of all floral notes, adding in verdant scents to evoke a country garden, bright berry notes for a playful atmosphere and delicious rhubarb for a fruity English twist.
If peony is the younger sister of the floral family, then jasmine is the sultry older sibling with its rich, sensual and intoxicating scent. Our bestseller Jasmine & Tuberose pairs this scent with another white floral for a heady, luxurious fragrance. Jasmine & Damson adds a decadent fruit twist and Jasmine & Bergamot lightens the rich floral notes with sparkling citrus.
