MY FAVORITE SCENTS FOR HOME + BODY
Over the years, I’ve learned that a little self care goes a long way – at home and for myself. Each morning, there’s nothing I love more than a candle flickering as the morning light starts to pour in while running a bath to wake me up for the day. A good scent just does something for me – it feels personal. I love to walk up to a friend for a hug and smell their perfume or catch a hint of a certain smell and have it take me back to a specific memory. John and I joke that we would let a lot of things go before we wouldn’t have our boujee hand soap by the sink or a candle burning when you walk through the door. It’s little luxuries, for both our home and myself, that bring me back to life in the best way.
Jo Malone Wood Sage + Sea Salt | Aèsop Reverence Aromatique
Byredo Mojave Ghost | Maison Louis Marie NO. 4 Bois de Balincourt Oil
BATH + BODY
Molton Brown Suede Orris Shower Gel | Molton Brown Suede Orris Body Lotion
Diptyque ‘Baies’ | Jenni Kayne ‘Topanga’
With each product, a little bit goes a long way and the scents stick around for the long haul. They also pair really nicely together – I use the Suede Orris in the bath + lotion once I get out each morning and night, as well as layer my perfumes on top of them. The roller ball is really nice because I simply dab a bit behind my ears and on my wrists, so the bottle really lasts. The hand soaps are always a hit when guests are over and the candles feel ‘signature’ to our home. My friends always comment on that because our scents are so consistent. I’m not high maintenance on a lot of things, but a good cup of coffee in the mornings and a warm scent are my musts!
Lastly, I didn’t include this one above, but as y’all know, we’re obsessed with The Laundress x Le Labo Santal and Rose detergents! We use them both (on our sheets and towels) and talk about a game changer around your home – there’s nothing like them! One of my favorite things to gift , too because it’s such a little luxury that a lot of people won’t purchase for themselves, but love!
Thanks so much for stopping by, X.
