The ultimate cosy night in: Changing of the seasons
As the clocks go back and lighter evenings draw to a close the need for cosiness encroaches. Our homes become a sanctuary from the elements outside, the throws come out, knitwear is on and your favourite candle makes an appearance. What’s better than the soft, warm glow of candlelight and a good old fashioned cuppa tea to make you warm and cosy. Here’s our top tips for making the most of the ‘Ber’ months inside.
Pick your fragrance
The scent of Autumn, we all have one right? Whether it is the smell of autumnal fruits, a walk in the woods or warming spices. Scents of the changing season bring with them a sense of magic and cosiness. Our Indian sandalwood soap bar is one of the varieties of woody aromas we have amongst our collections. With top notes of sandalwood, a heart of pine and cedar and a base of amber, tobacco and musk. This fragrance will no doubt evoke the feeling of being sat next to a log stacked fireplace.
To help get you started on the ultimate cosy night in, please see our array of autumnal fragrances that have been carefully selected by our fragrance experts. Please see see autumn fragrances here.
Take a warm shower
So you’ve picked your fragrance and you want to warm up in a shower of foamy goodness. This beautiful scent is also available in a body wash, making the perfect bridge between a luxurious lather experience and popping on your most comfiest of clothes. Our body wash is enriched with aloe vera and vitamin e, to wash away the dirt of the day whilst still being kind to your skin. The bottles are made from recycled plastic and are recyclable, an eco-conscious option with a luxury feel.
You’ve showered, you’re refreshed and the full sensation of tranquillity is imminent. Take your comfort journey one step further and indulge with a body oil or cream, protecting your skin and sealing in all that loveliness.

The Scene is set
You’re all set. The tea has been poured, you’re warm and relaxed and you’ve got your candle at the ready.

Developing into a heart of red berries, coconut and muguet on a base of violet, musks and rich sandalwood. Our candles also use natural soy wax and are vegan friendly, another win.
