The RHS Chelsea Flower Show takes place 24th - 28th May this year, with breath-taking plant displays, photographic exhibits and musical delights to enjoy at this sold-out event. If you weren't lucky enough to get hold of some tickets, fear not - you can bring the scents of your favourite flowers into your own home with our RHS Fragrant Garden range, inspired by British scents that are grown in the wild.
Lathyrus odoratus, more commonly known as Sweet Pea, present themselves in this beautiful fanfare of colour. Best planted in early autumn, you'll enjoy their gorgeous blooms in early Spring. Our Sweet Pea fragrance is soft and powdery with a slight hint of vanilla to bring out the fullness of the scent. We love Sweet Pea so much that we based a whole home fragrance accessories range on it!
Freesia laxa, also known as "flowering grass", adds these delicate little salmon-red flowers to your garden during the British Summer. The scent in captured in our Freesia selection is supported by rose, jasmine and lily with geranium, orange, amber and musk to finish. Believe it or not, growing Freesia is almost as easy as lighting a Freesia scented candle.
There are many different lavender plants grown in the UK and all their scents are much loved. Being hardy and easy to grow, it's easy to see why lavender features in many British gardens and across the countryside. This specific lavender scent features rose and violet, along with citrus notes and blossoms on a base of woods and musks to really round out and compliment the lavender fragrance.
What would this range be without the classic English Rose? A universal sign of love and romance, roses are coveted by many. It's not hard to see why, with their iconic scent, beauty and array of colours. Our Rose scent was added for 2016 and features a slight hint of gardenia to bring out the best in this fragrance. The two colours features on our design are also Pantone's Colours of the Year, chosen for the warm rose tone and the cooler blue colour which create a peaceful, soothing feeling, which is also the perfect way to describe this scent.
So if you love one of the scents we've explored, the floral scent of peonies or the musky elements of soft cotton, you will be able to capture some of the floral scents which feature at the Chelsea Flower Show in your own home.
