With the days being shorter and the nights cooler, winter is well and truly here. What better way to spend a cold winter evening than rugged up, in front of the fire with your new favourite candle burning? Changing the scents around your home to match the cooler months is the perfect way to bring a different kind of warmth into your space.
Check out what Palm Beach Collection founder Kirsten Walker has to say about the perfect winter scent to keep you cozy this season.
Why do we need to change the scent in the home in the winter?
When the air is crisp in the mornings and leaves begin to fall, it's a clear indication that summer is gone. During winter, memories of a warm ocean breeze and spring flowers blossoming start to become a distant memory, which can sometimes have an effect our our moods and mindsets as it darkens in the early afternoon. Choosing the right winter scent for your home can lift and brighten your mood by creating a warm and welcoming ambiance within the home.
How to chose a winter fragrance?
Winter is all about layers to keep warm and to protect us from the cold. A light, refreshing scent may be masked and is more fitting to the summer months. So it's best to chose a bold, strong scent during the cooler seasons to warm you up! Palm Beach Collection suggests their Lillies & Leather scent as it is the perfect balance of florals and wood to keep you warm and cosy on a crisp winters night.
What woody scent do you recommend for winter?
Palm Beach Collection's Clove & Sandalwood scent is ideal for winter. The perfect combination of rosewood, cedarwood, sandalwood and musk truly compliment each other bringing earthy, warm feelings to the home. Light this candle when having a warm bath as it's known to enhance relaxation and help you wind down in the evenings.
What better way to decompress after a long day at work than with a hot bubble bath, a glass of your favourite vino and a relaxing candle? The range also comes with a Clove & Sandalwood scented body wash so you can carry the soothing scent of clove and sandalwood with you even when the candle is no longer lit.
