Is there anything better than a beautifully scented room? We at The Amazing Blog can’t think of much that rivals the feeling you have after a long day and arriving to a home bursting with comforting, delightful and perfect smells. A room filled with a beautiful aroma can be more than just comforting but can completely relax you, and in our opinion, our friends over at Lilou et Loic London have mastered this art. 

Having a room diffuser in your home is an excellent way to be welcomed as you enter a room. Unlike other room diffusers which can be somewhat unsightly, the diffuser that Lilou et Loic sell makes for great décor as it is a stunning glass decanter. With six different scents that you can choose from, you are sure to find one that suits your needs. They are perfect for any room in the house.  Whether you like a lighter Wild Neroli and Water Jasmine bouquet in your bedroom or a Moroccan Wood & Fine Leather fragrance in your living room, you are bound to find a unique scent that meets your style. With products as wonderful as this it is not surprising that they won an award at the 2017 Beauty Shortlist Awards. 

Clear out all the negative outside vibes and make room for a room diffuser from Lilou et Loic here, now for £45.

Posh Tart - Filthy Velvet

Here at The Amazing Blog, we love nothing more than lighting some candles and unwinding with a few close friends, so when Filthy Velvet sent us one of their fun candles to try, we couldn't wait to use it.

There is a cheeky element to Filthy Velvet that we love, and while they make fabulous candles with beautiful scents, they don't take themselves too seriously. The candles, or "Scented Scandals" as they call them, are chic and set in a circular metal tin, looking at home on any counter, table or mantelpiece. The fun begins as you watch a shocked friend reading one of Filthy Velvet's unexpected names, such as "Big Pants" or "Busty Blonde" or "Pot Head." The provocative product names are original, odd and hilarious, making a superb gift for your sassiest friend.

We were sent the apple pie candle "Posh Tart" which had a sweet apple aroma, with notes of rich, spicy cinnamon and hints of nutmeg, vanilla and sugar pastry. The scent was noticeable but subtle, so you don't have to worry about it overpowering your home. Filthy Velvet's products are all hand poured in Northern Ireland, and are made from the finest fragrance oilsnatural wax and cotton wicks. With a burn life of up to 50 hours, these "filthy little scandals" are sure to leave you smiling for a long time.  

If you want the perfect quirky candle for your home, or a fun gift to give to a loved one, you can purchase a candle from their website here from £10.50.

A Novel Idea...

When imagining my future house it tends to go a little something like this: sprawling country mansion, acres of land, Range Rover in the drive way, shabby chic interiors, Farrow and Ball neutrals on the walls and lots of quirky little pieces dotted around the house from Moroccan bazaars, Parisian antiques houses and family-run shops in little Netherlands villages. Not too much to ask, right?

And while the country estate and Range Rover may have to wait a decade or two, having come across the fabulous Jasmine Way website, I can already start building my collection of unusual home accessories.

Founded in 2008, the team at Jasmine Way have spent the last three years travelling through continental Europe and the Middle East, in search of unique and distinctive pieces from small suppliers, thus ensuring an element of exclusivity in each and every one of their products.

As the resident bookworm at Amazing PR HQ, one of my favourite finds on offer from Jasmine Way has got to be this Cardboard Stool Bookworm. Created by Stefanie Keppler and Ingo Fremmer, founders of a German design studio, this unusual stool certainable won’t be able to buy from Ikea. And never having excelled in DIY, it’s thankfully very easy to assemble, can be used as either a stool or a side table, and can be dismantled after use if lacking in space. And at just £23, it’s an absolute steal, so check out their website and snap yourself up a unique treat for that future dream home of your own.
