Autumn that is....
The little Japanese quince fruits are edible I believe, but very small and very bitter. The lovely fragrance of them got me thinking about other favourite smells of the moment.
Woodsmoke and mushrooms out of doors, and indoors I am loving the smell of these candles. They are my favourite candles for Christmas so they are still in the cupboard, but I get an enticing whiff every time I open the cupboard door. (Thank you Lynne).
When I find a scent I love I have learned to stock up in the sales, which is just as well as they tend to discontinue my favourites! St Eval do this scent in a tin....
..and I have one and a half tucked away. The candle on the right is Fireside by The White Company. Absolutely gorgeous - like a wonderful old library with leather armchairs and a log fire and perhaps a sniff of brandy. I adore it, so why have they discontinued that as well?
I recently bought this bottle of distilled rosewater from M&S delicatessen - £2.95 I think. On impulse I put a splash of it into the water for the iron. Such a pleasure it made of the ironing today!
All very hygge don't you think? (See this post.)
