Forget an en suite bathroom – my wish is for a dressing room so that I could keep my bedroom free of clothing clutter. I have a friend who had the choice between an en suite and a dressing room and she chose the latter – it’s a hub of fitted drawers, racks and cupboards; in short, organised perfection.
For now though, I’ll have to be content with the Birch & Brook Dressing Room Candle, which is about as near as I’m likely to get unless I commandeer the garden shed. Hardly convenient and probably rather damp. So how do you infuse all the decadence of a dressing room into a candle? Berry, rose, sandalwood, musk, violet and peony, according to Birch & Brook. It’s powdery, velvety and clean; quite light on the fragrance but down notes of wood are balancing – all in all, it’s the scent of a calm space.
Festival, the other new scent, is much more lively with amber, musk and vanilla, bergamot and jasmine and fairly blooms into a room. It’s opulent and frivolous – full of fun, in the way that a scent can make you smile.
Each candle is £36 – maybe the very fact that I’ve got the candle is a sign. I hope so! Both candles launch in October HERE.
