After what feels like a very long winter, here in Derbyshire, we are certainly getting excited about the prospect of flowers blooming and the sun shining!
This change of season is the perfect time for a good spring clean! Round about now is when I usually start to change my fragrances around ready for Spring/Summer. Not only does it brighten up the store, fill it with fresh floral scents but also encourages customers to give their homes a new lease of life ready for Easter!
The Spring/Summer candle collection includes all year round best-sellers lemon & may chang, freesia & pear and tuberose & jasmine. Why not try something a little different like coconut, strawberry & champagne or mandarin & bergamot? These beautifully sweet scents scream summer and help add that splash of colour to your shop!
With spring cleaning in mind, diffusers are a great seller this time of year. Apart from them being extremely low maintenance, they give a room constant fragrance and look stylish on any shelf, coffee table or window ledge! If you’ve never tried the diffusers before, now is the time to give them a whirl! Available in 2 sizes to suit your customer’s needs, they also come in the form of a refill which leads to return custom! My best seller, lemon & may chang is a clean, fresh fragrance which can help eliminate cooking and pet smells. It also helps keep flies away in the warmer months because of the citrousy aroma! I also wouldn’t be without Summer Evening or Freesia & Pear going into the new season! They are light, fresh and are perfect for any room!
With spring comes Easter and boy is it early this year! Although it’s not a gift-giving holiday, with more and more health conscious customers around, the bath melts are fast becoming a fabulous change to the usual chocolate eggs! Not only are they fun for kids but picking 4 or 6 in a pretty coloured egg box is the perfect Easter egg alternative! Give your bath treats stand a well-deserved update (after the battering it got over Christmas!) I have swapped my dark coloured, wintery fragranced sundaes and soufflés for pastel pinks, yellows and floral decorated alternatives. These pretty colours look super- sweet in a yellow egg box; tie them with a ribbon and they are the perfect present under a tenner!
