An easter to indulge!
This Easter it’s a time for indulgence in more ways than one. While we love some choccy and some wine with loved ones, a little Easter egg hunt, and of course some down time over the long weekend, we also love the sensory experience, and that’s where fragrance comes in. And this year we thought we’d give you lots of sensory options that are just as good as a big fat chunk of chocolate. From sweet Vanilla based scents to cocktail inspired fragrances to delicious rich and gourmand scented heaven, we’ve compiled our favourites below for you to enjoy!

It’s Easter so we generally think chocolate, but when we think sweet deliciousness in fragrance we go straight to Vanilla. Every. Single. Time!
