Turning on the candle warmer has slowly become a daily routine for building the sense of ritual at home. As we change from scent to scent, we discover the fun of staying in and liberating the trapped soul and mind. Lately, a gender neutral skincare ritual has become the new trend in cosmetics and beauty products. With high-quality, minimalistic packaging and a focus on all-natural ingredients and fragrances, the minimalist aesthetics is incorporated into the product itself. Let us begin a homely sensory experience with a healing posture and end with a few quick tips that might come in handy when it comes to staying safe in this pandemic, allowing us to be able to enjoy life’s beauty even if we’re all staying at home.
Healing Begins with Acknowledging Our Feelings
Is it the scent of the English gardens that takes us on an escape from reality or is it the colorful summer days of the Mediterranean scents? Or perhaps it is the power of meditation that allows us to feel the tranquility and peace as we ponder about the new borns? With the different summer base notes, the new season presents us with a spectacular sensory experience. It is as if the unchanging space can come to life and be imbued with anticipation. Bamford launches its new English Garden Candle collection that is inspired by the fresh English flowers. Five different delicate fragrances of your choice, all made from beeswax and rapeseed to ensure firmness and stability that will evoke the most elegant, natural scent. This year, to celebrate its 60th anniversary, diptyque introduces a brand new summer collection that pays tribute to the Maison’s timeless muse—nature. This exclusive collection includes the Citronnelle Candle with floral and citrusy facets that instantly evoke summer evenings and comes in two sizes—the classic indoor 190g and the 1.5 kg which is perfect for outdoor use. Meanwhile, LE LABO launches the brand new Encens 9 Candle that celebrates the importance of incense. Combining notes of patchouli, clove, amber, sandalwood and musk, it promotes a calm state that can help us find peace in this unsettling time.
Good Mood, Good Day
Nowadays, with the frequent use of alcohol to disinfect our hands, hand care routines become just as important as any other skincare steps. Combining the soft texture and the elegant fragrance, we incorporate practicality into the pleasures of our daily life and turn each moment of cleansing into a relaxing enjoyment. BYREDO introduces its hand care collection imbued with our all-time favorite iconic scents. After using the rinse-free hand wash, apply the hand cream with sublime scents—not only will it add an extra layer of aroma, but it will also build a sense of ritual for our stay-at-home olfactory experience. Guerlain launches its online exclusive Abeille Royale Gift Set that includes the Soft Hands Hygiene Gel, the Repairing & Youth Hand Balm and the Youth Watery Oil. With a sun-drenched nectar, the products will leave a fresh and airy honeyed scent on the delicate hands and add a touch of soothing scent amidst this stressful time. In the meantime, to express gratitude towards mothers and caregivers alike, Aesop presents its exclusive Nurturer kit by ensembling the fragrant trio—the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm to moisturize and revitalize, the refreshing A Rose By Any Other Name Body Cleanser and the Cedar & Citrus Lip Salve to nourish the lips.
In the wake of the pandemic, everyone now pays more attention to cleanliness and comfort of the home. Although scents are invisible to the human eye, it has become a key impact to the quality of life. An all-natural, home cleaning brand, Bondi Wash uses native oils extracted from Australian botanicals. Having been lab-tested to confirm their antibacterial properties, these products are perfect for home cleaning—including floor wash, bench spray, mist spray and more—and can be carried around conveniently to offer a full-range protection. Besides hand cream, hand sanitizers and other hand care products are also important since some do not enjoy the pungent smell of alcohol. Continuing to explore the art of aromatic skincare with its expertise in perfumery, diptyque once again combines the sensory experience with skincare efficacy and introduces the brand new Rinse-Free Hand Wash. Allowing us to enjoy the time we wash our hands, these therapeutic hand care products help create an enjoyable skin cleansing routine, a perfect manifestation of the importance of self-care.
