  • Summer's in the Air...

    As we venture into second half of May, I find myself wondering if it is summer already?  Temperatures in London have edged over the 20'C mark (even over 25 today!) and so as far as I'm concerned, it is.  Temperatures aside (I'm no meteorologist after all), it's been the air that's "scent" us straight into summer.  Infused with jasmine and roses everywhere you turn, this is no spring awakening but rather a summer arrival, loud and clear.  Any of my Instagram friends will be aware that I have become absolutely obsessed with roses.  Pardon me if you find me leaning over your garden fence to capture another splash of colour with my iPhone.  I really can't help it.  I was trying to photograph a rose every day for the month of May, well once I woke up and realised they were everywhere... That hasn't quite happened but it's the thought that counts, right?!

    Anyway, it's these beautiful floral scents of summer that I think has people feeling uplifted as much as the sun.  If only you could bottle it!  Well guess what I discovered last week.... you can!  I was given a sample of Diptyque's new fragrance Geranium Odorata Eau de Toilette and I must say, it is wonderful.  This unisex perfume is full of rich warm flowers, Geranium Bourbon and Rose Geranium and has spicy undertones of Pink Peppercorn and Tonka Bean, all delivered with the fresh woody notes of Haitian Vetiver and Cedar. Perfect for this time of year, especially since the Chelsea Flower Show starts next week! : )
