The origin of the Woods of Windsor luxury bath, body and homes brand comes from a small apothecary locate in the shadow of Windsor as far back as 1770. This local apothecary served not only the townsfolk of Windsor, but also the Royal family and its distinguished visitors. In 1971 the brand successfully launched a beautiful range of perfumery products, including pot pourri and china pomanders using lavender flowers and rosebuds. Relaunched in 2016 with a beautiful new packaging design reflecting Windsor's beautiful landscape, these evocative scents will transport you to the enchanting country gardens that inspired them. The range now includes eau de toilettes, bath and shower gels, hand creams, hand washes, dusting powders and luxury soaps. With it being the Queen's Jubilee this year, I thought it the perfect time to share with you some of my favourite Woods of Windsor's products...
The Woods of Windsor Diffuser* (£15.00 for 100ml) comes in three different fragrances, and the one I have here is Citrus. This is an alcohol-free diffuser that keeps any room in the home beautifully fragranced. Featuring a citrus, fruity green floral fragrance, the scent opens with refreshing Lemon, Orange and Melon, warming into a heart of Pine, Neroli and Jasmine which settles to a musky Vanilla and Amber base. To use a diffuser, all you need to do is remove the cap from the bottle and place the aroma reeds into the bottle. The aromatic oils are absorbed up through the reeds and the fragrance is released naturally. To refresh, flip the reeds so the moist ends face upwards and replace back into the bottle. I like to keep mine at the front of the house, so that when you walk in, you are welcomed with a beautiful fragrance.
To go with the Diffuser, you can also get the Woods of Windsor Room Mist* (£10.00 for 100ml), and again in the same three fragrances - Citrus, Vanilla and Linen. This freshly fragranced room mist keeps the home smelling wonderful and I like to keep mine upstairs so that I can use it for the bathroom and also to mist onto bedding for a freshen up. The Citrus fragrance works really well for the bathroom as it is super fresh and invigorating, and whilst it is also lovely on bedsheets, I think the Linen scent would be perfect for freshening up materials such as duvets and pillow cases for in between washes.
I am not normally a Vanilla kinda gal when it comes to fragrance, as it can often be sickly sweet, but the Woods of Windsor Vanilla Candle* (£12.00 for 150g) has soon become a favourite of mine. Vanilla is a sweet gourmand fragrance that combines Hazelnut and Vanilla, opening with sweet notes of Cinnamon which warms into Hazelnut, Vanilla and Milk, settling onto a base of Caramel, Sandalwood and Vanilla. The Sandalwood ensures this is slightly muskier than your average vanilla, and it really is a great scent. The candle itself is a natural soy wax candle which will burn for up to 33 hours, but it is recommended that you burn this candle for a minimum of 2 hours and a maximum of 4 hours to get the best from it. Don't forget to trim your wick before every use to no shorter than 1cm!
