Home Scents: Lavender and Something from the Islands

Wednesday, July 27, 2011 1 No tags Permalink 0

We’ve gone through a parade of home scents this summer and yet L’Occitane’s Lavender is the one I keep returning to. The lavender is calming, light with a bit of vanilla in the air. And it’s also the only one Pierre will tolerate. He says it reminds him of Provence. No surprise there ;)

Remind me to find a local Hawaiian scent the next time I’m in Honolulu. Hibiscus? Pikake*? Lilikoi? Pierre can be reminded of Provence in one room and I shall be reminded of Hawai’i in another! Couple that with the (occasionally not so pleasant) scent of New York City right out our doors. Trifecta! What more could you ask for?

*And maybe a solid pikake fragrance balm from Maoli Perfumes to match – found these beauties via hapa | hale.

    in love with lavender. between lavender in the garde, room spray and perfume I am slowly transforming into a lavender blossom. do you steep it in tea or infuse it in your water?
