English Heritage have launched their Woods of Windsor home fragrance collection, inspired by historic properties such as Eltham Palace and Kenilworth Castle. Looking after 400 cultural destinations across the UK, English Heritage certainly know a thing about adding some extra elegance into our humble abodes.
A really gorgeous range, scents include Sea Spray & Freesia, Citrus & Basil and Tudor Rose. Featuring home ideas from diffusers and candles to drawer liners, wardrobe sachets and room fragrances, I love the classic concept behind these products. So far I’ve sampled Sea Spray & Freesia Drawer Liners (£9.99 for 5 sheets) and the Tudor Rose Scented Candle (£15.99), in addition to first discovering the Woods of Windsor Citrus & Basil Scented Candle via another beauty article I’ve written.
The Sea Spray & Freesia scent is a nod to the coastal gardens found at Osborne, a place Queen Victoria turned to for her seaside holidays. Fresh and floral, notes of lily, geranium, violet and tea rose, plus musk and seawood, make for an invigorating aroma. Also decorated with a signature Woods of Windsor pattern, the liners add a little luxury to my once unassuming underwear drawer. Always a bonus…
I’m not sure you can ever go wrong with a strong candle collection, and within this one my favourite scents feature quite heavily. I absolutely adore rose, and the Tudor Rose candle emits a lovely luxe rose ambiance, ideal for any time of the year. Inspired by Kenilworth Castle’s Elizabethan Garden, this Tudor residence played host to roses which are present 400 years later. Complemented by vanilla, peony, violet and more, the candle comes in a glass pot that I will be re-using when finished.
Finally, the range’s Citrus & Basil elements mirror the Art Deco period, an era focussed upon within Eltham Palace’s decor. This is an uplifting mix of grapefruit, lime and orange joining basil, bay and jasmine, alongside patchouli.
Should you be looking to add a little extra cosiness into your own home this autumn or shop for a seasonal stocking filler, I’d thoroughly recommend checking out the Woods of Windsor range.
