This week’s collaboration comes from Peppermint Grove Australia – www.peppermintgroveaustralia.com
The last few months, I’ve had to endure London’s bitterly cold weather so when ‘Peppermint Grove Australia’ sent me some of their newest luxury fragrance products to try, it was a huge pick-me-up. I welcomed the gifts into my home with open arms. (Literally too as they’d sent me a massive box of loveliness – thank you Peppermint Grove!) 🙂
I’ll admit, I had spent several days straight indoors hibernating from the outside world (due to the recent heavy snow fall) so I couldn’t wait to see what goodies I could brighten up my home with.
I was thrilled to open a box greeted with a beautiful array of products which included scented candles, a diffuser and bath & body products. I was even more excited to see that they had kindly personalised the silver candle lids with my name and website alias.
The first candle I lit was the large Wild Jasmine & Mint candle (above). The fragrance is described as “a classic and sophisticated white floral fragrance, reminiscent of the magnificent century old private gardens found within the Southern Highlands.” I love fresh, floral scents so this was like heaven to me – a perfect summers day. The candle also has two wicks so the aroma circulates the room quickly.
Next I decided to light the smaller candle, the Burnt Fig & Pear (below). This had a delicious fruity fragrance. Much more warm and sultry. It’s described as being “inspired by the sun-ripened orchards of the beautiful Margaret River Wine Region.” I would use it in the evening as it’s definitely a more warm and cosy smell.
The room diffuser is Patchouli & Bergamot. It’s a beautiful oriental aroma that really fills you with a sense of freedom and opportunities! (Might sound strange but there’s no other way to describe it!) It’s quite a unique euphoric smell. It’s a great size too, and should last up to six months.
Next, I moved on to the bath & body products. I received the Red Plum & Rose Hand Cream and the Freesia & Berries Beauty Bar Soap.
The hand cream is wonderfully thick in texture and smells divine! It’s the perfection combination of floral and fruity. The soap is a fruit-filled too and is a great pamper product. In fact, both of these two items would make perfect gifts for a loved one, so I’ve just decided I’m going to give mine to my mum for Mothers Day. 🙂
The whole Peppermint Grove Australia range is really modern and stylish. Everything looks as good as they smell. I love the silver candle lids which double-up as a protective base while burning. As I mentioned earlier, they can be personalised with initials or a personal message. (A lovely idea if it’s for a wedding or birthday present.) The glass used is highly polished and finished with a trademark bevelled style.
The designs all really compliment each other in an arrangement. They look especially good on mantelpiece / fireplace as a focus point to a room. Or perhaps in a hallway opposite the front door as a statement piece for your guests to see when they walk in.
If you’re looking to add new fragrances and style to your home (or to someone elses!) then I would definitely recommend the Peppermint Grove Australia range to you! Here’s a link to their website if you’d like to have a browse of their products:
