Landon Tyler – Perfect gifts for Christmas

As we reach the end of October, the time has come to start thinking about Christmas gifts. If you are thinking of buying a gift for a couple or a family, a good solution could be a candle or a diffuser set. Landon Tyler is a new brand of home fragrances that includes beautiful scented candles, diffusers and fragrance sets that have the look of a luxury brand, but at a fraction of the cost.  The range has 12 fragrance choices, and comes in very elegant smoked glass bottles that will look beautiful whether they are on display in a living room, bathroom or bedroom.

Landon Tyler say-

“…ALL 12 FRAGRANCES HAVE BEEN EXCLUSIVELY DEVELOPED USING THE FINEST INGREDIENTS AND FEATURE HIGH DOSAGES OF THEIR SCENTS TO ENSURE THEIR AROMAS FULLY INFUSE ROOMS THROUGHOUT, CREATING MOMENTS AND MEMORIES FOR EVERY SEASON…”

I was recently sent some of the beautiful products from Landon Tyler to test out in my home. The fragrance I chose was Pink Cashmere, as I loved the name of this product, and was sure that this would be a more perfumed fragrance that would be perfect for using in my living room. I received a truly beautiful single filled candle in a smoked glass jar, and a diffuser in a matching jar with a selection of reeds.

The first thing you notice about the products is the classy packaging. Beautifully boxed, these are ready to gift to someone special – you don’t even need to wrap these up as they already look amazing. The candle is substantial, it feels quite heavy and promises up to 40 hours burning time, a pretty good return when you realise the candle only cost £8. The diffuser is also a great touch, offering the same scent so that you do not lose the smell even when the candle is not burning.

The Pink Cashmere scent is described as ‘a sensual fine fragrance combining jasmine, amber, patchouli, musk and muguet.’ I found this to be a soft, pretty fragrance, not overly cloying or overpowering, but more like a beautiful perfume. You can instantly smell it when you enter a room, but not in a strong way that would lead you to opening windows, but more like the smell of a beautiful perfume as someone walks past you and leaves a lovely lingering scent. I think this makes it perfect for a living room or bedroom, I don’t think this would be strong enough for kitchen smells.

Febreze – The Sweet Smell of Christmas

Christmas – it’s a feast of smells isn’t it. The gorgeous scents of cinnamon and mulled wine, of chestnuts roasting on an open fire, the mouthwatering aroma of a turkey roasting slowly in the oven. The most wonderful time of the year is also the most fragrant. Yeah right, who exactly am I trying to kid?

All the fragrances above are wonderful, but they are not the only smells associated with Christmas. The smell of cooking can become something you wish to escape from once you’ve had your fill of food. The aroma of sprouts is never good in my view, and once the whole family has feasted on them, the Christmas flatulence would frankly make you scared to light a match.  The aroma of Christmas can be a bit of a pungent nightmare if we are being honest here.

Luckily Febreze have put together a gorgeously aromatic collection of scented candles, room sprays and reed diffusers in a lovely range of festive fragrances. From Vanilla Latte, Apple & Spice and Warm Cedarwood, these little life savers will make even the smelliest of rooms become warm and festive, and with a great rrp of just £2 – £6, these are the sort of things you can drop into the shopping trolley without breaking (the probably very empty at this minute…piggy bank.)

I have been trialing the Apple&Spice variety of products in different rooms of the house and just love the way they evocative of that traditional idea of Christmas.  The room spray is great to also spray onto upholstery, it lingers in the air and on furniture for a long time, totally belying the bargain price. The candles also look great, total minimalistic chic that would fit into any living room, whatever the decor. Add to this the special, vintage Christmas inspired packaging, and you get some really lovely, and affordable home products that will just add to the Christmas feeling – your house looks Christmassy and will certainly smell Christmassy too…and I mean that in a good way!
