Surround yourself with sensual scents

I cannot believe it has been about a year since I last wrote about adding fragrance to your home to lift the lockdown mood.

I have discovered some stunning mood enhancers in recent weeks.

After what seems like a lifetime in lockdown, our living and workspaces need a burst of freshness!


Fill your home with the uplifting fragrance of a Mervue vegan rose geranium aromatic candle. Some earthy base notes combined with heart warming petitgrain and lavender, enhanced with the delicately fragranced rose-scented geranium, produce a wonderful floral aroma suitable for any room in your home. A vegan and cruelty-free product and packaging, it has been inspected and verified by the Vegan Society and Leaping Bunny organisations. It’s available in selected pharmacies, for €25.

Blumain Diffuser

Made in Ballydesmond, Blumain Organics is a great collection of natural skincare and fragranced candles and diffuser. Why not indulge in a Lemon Grass & May Chang Reed Diffuser, for €30? Enjoy weeks of continuous fragrance with this fresh and zesty diffuser. Perfect for the office or kitchen, the fragrance is potent and the I find that lemongrass is very vibrant and quite stimulating so I think this is for any active space. You can order online at
