It’s amazing how the soft scent and flicker of a tiny flame from a scented candle has the power to instantly transform the feel of a room – making it immediately more welcoming. Scent is something we are absolutely passionate about at The White Company, and we work incredibly hard to make our exclusive scents extra-special. We only use premium ingredients, and our aim is to create a truly beautiful range with real choice for all of us to love throughout the seasons.
In Winter, I tend to hanker after a sense of warmth and cosiness whereas, in Summer, I find myself switching to lighter, fresher scents that almost fill our homes with sunshine.
Here are some of my favourites for using in different ways throughout Summer.
“I just love this gentle scent that captures the season so brilliantly. Notes of sea salt (a real favourite of mine) combined with bright, fresh eucalyptus and vetivert, always instantly transport us into holiday mode. I love it in the hall, living room, or dotted down a Summer dining table. If, like me, you’re a fan of the ozonic notes in Summer, then I think you might love Ocean Tide, too. With its uplifting mix of vetivert, violet leaf, orange and sea salt, it’s the next best thing to a walk by the ocean.”

TIP: “When I have friends coming over, I love to make sure the downstairs loo is in good shape, too! Scent diffusers and a lovely hand lotion are brilliant for this. In the evening, I like to light one of our mini votive candles, which suit smaller spaces. Recently, I’ve been loving our Linen and Cashmere which, with their beautiful, gentle scents, are brilliant choices for bedrooms or living spaces, too.”
