The Power of Scent


Use the power of oils to trick your brain.

To boost energy:

Tisserand harnesses the aromatherapeutic power of essential oils in its extensive range of products. This pocket-friendly Energy Boost Pulse Point Roller Ball is a must for groggy Monday mornings


To evoke memory:

Stories Parfums was founded after a transformative trip to Grasse by founder, Tonya. There, she was confronted by the power of scent to trigger memories and connect with the past. Currently there are two ‘chapters’ in the Stories collection, one warm and woody with citrussy top notes; one deeper and richly spiced, based around Bulgarian Rose. Both equally appealing.

From £40 for 15 ml

To send you to sleep:

Light this soy-wax candle a couple of hours before lights-out to fill the air with a blend of 11 essential oils which magically combine to produce a softly soothing aroma. Neom Bedtime Hero, Three Wick Candle


To get in the mood:

The most powerful aphrodisiac is, arguably, an emotional connection. Scentered’s Love balm offers a helping hand through use of woody oriental fragrances, with heart-warming rose and jasmine, underscored by rich patchouli and vanilla. Suggested use? Stop what you are doing and apply. Inhale and visualise your new mindset, then reset as you exhale.

From £4.95

To chill out:

If you’re yearning for the relaxing yet invigorating benefits of a Yoga session but can’t get to the gym, trick your senses into that calming zen-state by spritzing the Mio Liquid Yoga Space Spray. Its vegan-friendly scent utilises plant-based chemistry through use of uplifting essential oils, including Cannabis Seed.


To improve focus:

Struggling with the holiday comedown? Back to work/study and finding it hard to settle? Meet your new BFF; Neal’s Yard Remedies Focus Flower Essence Blend. Four drops diluted in water and sipped throughout the day – sadly not recommended for under 18s as it contains a miniscule amount of brandy (!)

For some years the concept of biophilia has been something of a buzzword in design circles, most often used in reference to architecture and more latterly, interiors. Put simply, it is a term used to describe the human tendency to interact or be close nature and its other forms of life.
