No I’m not talking about your knickers, silly! Drawers! Although if you popped one of these beautiful l’Occitane sachets into your lingerie drawer then you would have scented knickers. Or panties, if you’re from the US. Or drawers, if you’re from the 18th Century.
I adore finding subtle and pretty ways to scent my home – I don’t particularly like to have one scent pervading through the entire house, I prefer hidden little sachets and soaps wrapped in paper. I have a rose-scented soap in my tights drawer that has been there since I bought my house (six years ago, I think?) and my wardrobe smells vaguely of something floral. Iris perhaps? I have some drawers in there that are lined with scented paper. It all adds up, I tell you!
These beautiful perfumed sachets from l’Occitane are a gorgeous way of keeping linens and clothes smelling fresh. I think that they’re too pretty to hide away – I love the rustic styling – but they are perfect for popping in with winter clothes when you pack them away for the summer, and summer clothes when you…you get the drift. Travel tip: pack one into your suitcase and your clothes will smell great when you unpack them at your destination! I recommend Verbena for holiday travel and Lavender for business trips. Don’t know why, just do.
The sachets are available in Lavender or the fresh, citrussy Verbena. The smell of a divine French summer! £7 each from L’Occitane
