Have you ever wondered why the smell of a bar of soap can immediately transport you back to the halcyon days of your childhood? Our sense of smell acts as a trigger to the brain, unleashing memories and emotions. In fact, many studies have shown that certain odors are effective in the fight against stress, so instead of popping a pill, why not light a candle instead?

Le Cherche Midi, the luxury home fragrance brand, have recently expanded their range of distinctive home fragrances and candles, deliciously packaged in eco-chic wood boxes lined in silk! Each fragrance line is identified only by its color and number. My favorite? No 20. As a Brit growing up in a chilly Northern climate, the scent reminds me of a walking in from the cold to a roaring fire. With top notes of cedar, sandalwood, black pepper and vetiver, it’s time to curl up on the couch and put the kettle on!

Find Le Cherche Midi Collection at Takashimaya and Bergdorf Goodman.
