I like to think I could be the kind of person that wanders through her garden in some floaty linen arrangement and a broad brimmed sun hat, taking snips of lavender to later hand-sew into scented sachets while the sun goes down on my beautiful life. In reality, all of the LOLS apply to that scenario!
However, that same fantasy person probably spritzes all her fine French linen with delicately scented spray, and that I can do, if you can swap out French linen for Debenhams sale sheets. The Molton Brown Linen Sprays are ticking all the boxes for that little bit of the fantasy life – as long as a linen spray isn’t too perfumed and you can find a fragrance that you love, it’s such a lovely thing to do for oneself.
Of the four new linen sprays, I like Orange & Bergamot best – I love anything citrussy and while it’s not an obvious one to spritz on your bed linen, because it’s quite energetic and zesty, it’s also very fresh and happy. I’d be very pleased to have this on my newly ironed (preferably by someone else) linens. Gingerlily is very pretty; it’s lightly floral and in tune with summer months, while I’d never sleep a wink with Pink Pepperpod – it’s far too musty, woody and patchouli laden. Finally, Ylang Ylang would be Option B in place of Orange & Bergamot. It’s got an exotic, holiday feel to it and it’s a little bit heady. You don’t have to stick to linen: these will all double up as a room spray, but ideally, I’d want them in a fine mist amount over towels and sheets.
The Ultimate Beauty Advent Calendar
I’m thinking of these as gift-to-self – they fall into the indulgent, don’t really need category but sometimes need is nothing to do with anything, especially when your hand-stitching, lavender picking alter-ego is 100% absent. They’re £24 HERE.
