Deep Sleep Calm Natural Pillow Spray Pairfum London

Deep Sleep Spray

Calming & Natural Pillow Spray

Having a problem falling asleep or trying to get a good night’s sleep? then using a deep Sleep Spray can help you solve that problem.

One of our most popular products, that customers come back for repeatedly, is our Natural Sleep Spray, that can be used on your pillows, bed sheets, duvet covers, night clothes, or sprayed into the air.

We all know that there are a number of contributing factors for why we can’t jump into bed and sleep, ranging from the age and condition of your mattress and pillow to the temperature in your room. Not to mention noise levels and how dark and electronic free your resting place is.

Some of the causes for a disturbed nights sleep may seem very obvious, but it is surprising how many people, do not consider them a factor when trying to eliminate or alleviate the cause of a sleepless or restless night.

Pairfum London Linen Lavender Good Night Sleep Spray

One of the most obvious things is that you do not go to sleep in a brightly lit room, bright light especially blue-ish light that is emitted from T.V.’s, Computer Screens, Mobile phones, all send a signal to our brains that it’s still daytime and prevents the body’s natural release of chemicals critical for sleep.

 Our bodies release chemicals in a 24-hour cycle, telling us to do certain things at certain times. Each of these cycles is called a circadian rhythm, one of the most important chemicals involved in this process is melatonin, a hormone that makes us feel sleepy and the amount of melatonin in our bodies starts increasing in the evening as natural light decreases, and peaks in the middle of the night, letting us know it is time to sleep. It then decreases by morning, allowing us to wake up refreshed.

Why is it so important that we get a good nights sleep?

Studies show that four in every ten Americans don’t even get the minimum of seven hours of sleep doctors recommend, and the important word in the previous sentence is ‘MINIMUM’. This is now considered a public health emergency, as lack of sleep and fatigue leads to both short and long term mental and physical health problems.

Pairfum London Linen Lavender Good Night Sleep Spray Anti Anxiety

Recent studies have shown that Americans currently average only 6.8 hours of sleep per night, down an hour from 1942, which means that they have lost ‘One Full’ hours sleep per night since then. Think of it as having to set your alarm clock an hour earlier every morning…

This is not something that effects only people living in the USA, but they have recognised the problem and are studying the causes and effects.

As I have mentioned above, study after study has shown that watching a screen before bedtime or while you are lying in bed is an absolute ‘No-no’ – if you wish to drift off to the land of nod and stay there until morning…. So whether it’s a TV screen, your laptop, tablet or phone. If you want to fall asleep ditch the  pixels until morning.

Expert Tips

The following are some simple tips that will help improve your nights sleep:

Lavender has been shown to decrease heart rate and blood pressure, potentially putting you in a more relaxed state. In one study, researchers monitored the brain waves of subjects at night and found that those who sniffed lavender before bed had a deeper nights sleep and felt more invigorated in the morning

If Lavender helps us get a better nights sleep – then “Why is that”?

Well you will be delighted to know that there is scientific proof to backup the claim..

Lavender oil is mainly composed of linalyl acetate (which is a naturally occurring phytochemical found in many flowers and spice plants, and is one of the principal components of the essential oils of Lavender and Bergamot) and linalool. Both are natural chemicals that are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. Studies on mice have shown that these compounds inhibit several neurotransmitters and have a sedative and pain-relieving effect. In humans, lavender has been proven to lower the heart rate and reduces anxiety, leading to a more relaxed and peaceful sleep.

Dr. Chris Winter, MD who is a renowned sleep specialist and author of ‘The Sleep Solution – Why Your Sleep Is Broken and How To Fix It’ (who has also been called “The Sleep Whisperer”) I love this name as it better to whisper, so you do not wake anyone up….Has also stated that scent plays a role in helping people drift off to sleep, with the proviso that the formula contains lavender. “There are a number of studies that indicate it might have sleep-promoting effects,” he says.

Other notes that are known to help promote relaxation and sleep are, Chamomile, Bergamot, Jasmine, Rose, Sandalwood and Valerian.

Recommendations from the Harvard Medical School suggest using dim red lights in the evenings, and to expose yourself to bright lights during the day time to help reset your sleep schedule (your internal clock).

In a recent Bedroom Poll by the National Sleep Foundation in the US, 53% of their respondents rated sleeping on sheets with a fresh scent an important contributor to their sleep experience.

Multi Sensorial Sleep Open Air Bed

If Lavender is not one of your favourite notes, other fragrances that you associate with happy events in your life are also perfect to use. For example notes or smells that evoke or awaken happy, calming memories such as walks on the beach or in the woods, a wonderful relaxing holiday, times spent with loved ones or memories of childhood when sleep came easily at the end of a day well spent.

Dr. Winter the ‘Sleep Whisperer’ – also said that “Sprays can be helpful if we pair a certain smell in our minds with the act of sleep,”. “This is particularly true with travel. If you associate a certain smell with your bedroom, spraying that in your hotel room can trick your brain into thinking you’re at home.”

This is the reason PAIRFUM London developed their ‘Voyage’ 30ml Spray, it is the perfect travelling partner to take with you on Holiday…..

Happy Valentine's Day The Heart Shaped Lake In Co Wicklow Ireland

Happy Valentine’s Day

Today across the World we celebrate St Valentine’s Day which has become the day associated with LOVE and Lovers, so from everyone here at PAIRFUM London “Happy Valentine’s Day”

Happy Valentines Day Love PAIRFUM

History tell us that St Valentine was a Priest or Bishop who helped young people to get married against the strict instructions of the Roman Emperor Aurelian in 273. Although not much of St. Valentine’s life is reliably known, and whether or not the stories involve two different saints by the same name has also not been officially decided, it is widely accepted that he was the Saint of Courtly Love.

Pairfum Large Reed Diffuser Bell Pure Blush Rose Amber

In other circles it is believed to have first become associated with romantic love thanks to a poem by Geoffrey Chaucer (1343–1400?), titled ‘Parchement of Foules’ or the ‘The Parliament of Birds’ which contains one of the earliest references to the idea that St. Valentine’s Day is a special day for lovers.

Beautiful Red Rose Single Stem Happy Valentines Day

It was not until the 18th Century that it rose to prominence, when people began to send cards or letters and give gifts to their loved ones – or to those they wished were their Amour.

Whichever version of the wonderful story of how St Valentine became associated with the 14th of February tugs at your Heart strings, we wanted to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day that we hope you can share with the ones you LOVE xx

Lewis Miller Nyc Trash Can Flower Fragrance Bin Freshener

Fresh Flowers – The New Bin Freshener

Rarely is a public bin (or trash can) being admired nowadays but seeing beautiful floral bouquets decorating these trash cans, one cannot help but hope to see more this type of bin freshener.

Lewis Miller Nyc Scented Bin Freshener Deco

The designer Lewis Miller filled empty trash cans on the streets of New York with beautiful floral bouquets using the voluminous bins as vases to support the colorful blooms and lush greenery.

These decorative arrangements are made up of a variety of blooms:

  • pale pink roses,
  • branches of flowering azaleas,
  • bright sunflowers,
  • gorgeous exotic blooms, and
  • striking greenery.
Lewis Miller Nyc Floral Bin Freshener Art Perfume

“We are storytellers through the art of floral design, transforming an arrangement into a love song and an event into an indelible experience.” This is how the team of Lewis Miller describe the project in their own words.

The team noticed, how pedestrians no longer walk around the bins but are actually drawn to the floral installations to smell the beautiful flowers in their unique ‘vases’.

Lewis Miller Nyc Floral Bin Freshener Perfume

This is what we call an ideal bin freshener and we encourage more cities to adopt creative ways of turning smelling trash cans into pieces of art that draw crowds.

We invite all city authorities to call us here at Pairfum London, if they would like to realise a project in this field.

People Don’t Buy What They Need!

PAIRFUM Boutique Couture Perfume Eau De Parfum Private Collection Home Fragrance Skin Care Sweet Rhubarb Oakmoss 400x400

We have heard it said that people don’t buy what they need!, they buy what they want….

Now this may be the case for some very rare and lucky individuals in the World…

However for the rest of us mere mortals, there are certain things that we must take into consideration before buying what we want… not least of which is our bank balance.

Having said that, when we do have a choice, as most of us at one time or another do – then we very rarely buy what we need – we buy what we want.

Fragrance Heart Sing Pairfum London

So, when we do have the wonderful opportunity to choose, especially something for someone we love or something very special for ourselves (and yes we do deserve it)

Then make sure that whatever you choose is like you, unique, special and worth waiting for…

Coco Chanel Reason Why Love Boutique Perfume

Coco Chanel – The Reason Why We Love Niche Perfume

Coco Chanel Reason Why Love Artisan Perfume

Is Coco Chanel one of the reasons why we love Niche Perfume?

If asking is the founder one of the most famous brands in the world, one of the reasons why we love Niche, Artisan, Boutique or Indie Perfume is not a  contradiction in terms?

Then I don’t know what is……

By definition the words Niche, Artisan, Boutique or Indie, describe a product that is different, created by smaller, independently owned brands, in some cases artisan products are handmade in-house, and are described as original and creative.

There has been quite a lot of discussion lately about the definitions and distinction between the use and meaning of the words niche, indie, boutique and artisan perfume brands, but that is a topic for a later post.

For the moment let us just say that they are used to describe a Creation or Collection of Perfumes in PAIRFUM London’s case, that make you stand out from the crowd, something that is unique and will not be found in every drugstore, airport and supermarket.

Coco Chanel Reason Why Love Niche Fragrance

Niche, Artisan, Boutique or Indie Perfumes

Why then you may ask would we think that Coco Chanel could be one of the reasons why we love Niche, Artisan, Boutique or Indie Perfumes?

Well, in her own inimitable words – “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” – Coco Chanel

There are many other Coco Chanel quotes, that we can point to that show us examples of how that unique Lady wanted us to – “Be who you are, not what the world wants you to be.” – Coco Chanel

She quite rightly pointed out that “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”. – Coco Chanel

She also said that the – “The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.” – Coco Chanel

I would add that “The best Perfume in the World is the one that smells amazing on you, so don’t be afraid to try, search for the things that make you the original you were born to be”. – Huib Maat

So as this creator of fashion also said – “If you want to be original, be ready to be copied.” – Coco Chanel

One of my favourite quotes from her for a host of reasons is – “The best things in life are free. The second-best are very expensive.”

With this in mind and when you are next searching for the something special for yourself or for that someone special – “Be Your Authentic Self” – Huib Maat

Smile Infectious Perfume Happy

Smile – It is Infectious!

Man Smile Infectious Perfume Happy

Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized
I’d passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile,
then I realized its worth.
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
don’t leave it undetected.
Let’s start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!

Smile Infectious Fragrance Happy Girl

This poem that promotes the positivity of smiling is sometimes attributed to the late great Spike Milligan, whether it was written by him or by Karen McLendon-Laumann, we would be delighted to hear from anyone who can confirm the author.

Well, who ever it was that wrote this lovely little ditty, the poem does exactly what it is telling us to do – It makes us SMILE…………

So from everyone here at PAIRFUM London for 2019 we wish you Miles and Miles of Smiles, enough to spread around the World and infect it.

Twelve Days Of Christmas Is Not Yet Finished

The Twelve Days of Christmas!

Twelve Days Of Christmas Is Not Yet Finished 12

We have all heard or heard of the song, The Twelve Days of Christmas,

This period over Christmas is also known as Twelvetide, where “Christmas Day” is considered the “First Day of Christmas” and the Twelve Days are the 25th of December to the 6th of January (Old Christmas Day).

PAIRFUM Christmas Holy Family Baby Jesus Mary Joseph Perfumed Candles Reed Diffuser

Most people look forward to Christmas and spending time with their family, but it is a busy and often a hectic time of year..

 

So if you do find yourself getting stressed out about it, as we all do at times….

Sleep and Insomnia – How to Fall Asleep with Fragrance

Just spare a thought for the unfortunate person in the song – The Twelve Days of Christmas

The Twelve Days Of Christmas

What! between getting a Pear Tree, that needs pruning and watering, with a Partridge that needs feeding….

To Two Turtle Doves, Three French Hens, Four Calling Birds, by day four you already have an aviary to look after.. and you have not even got the Turkey yet!

Then just when you think that things may be slowing down on the avian side, because after all you had received – Five Golden Rings…

It was just a case of them lulling you into a false sense of security…..

Along comes.. you may already have guessed where this is going… Yes, that right  – Six Geese a Laying…

Just when you think it can’t get any better! – Seven Swans a Swimming arrive on the scene – hopefully not in your garden pond….

Twelve Days Of Christmas Is Not Finished

Now hold on to your hats, because if you thought you had sorted out all the feeding, cleaning, and housing of half the avian population..

Eight Maids a Milking arrive… milking what we don’t know? but it will mean an extra eight people for dinner…

By now, any sensible person would have moved house, gone on holiday or simply broken off the engagement….

However in the case of true love, Nine Ladies Dancing arrived and had to be added to the guest list for Christmas Dinner.

Along with – Ten Lords a Leaping, Eleven Pipers Piping, 12 Drummers Drumming, at this stage the aviary is starting to look like a place of sanctuary

So however or where ever you plan to spend The Twelve Days of Christmas this year….

PAIRFUM London, wish you peace, happiness, patience and lots of restfull sleep xx

What is Art? Is Perfume Art?

Perfume Art In Home Fragrance 58
Perfume Art In Home Fragrance 58

Is Perfume Art ?

Are Home Fragrance and Skin Care also Art?

The English Oxford dictionary defines art as “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.”. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines art as “the conscious use of skill and creative imagination, especially in the production of aesthetic objects.” What is Art?, what do you think it is and how would you go about describing it.

Pairfum Art In Fragrance 8

Leo Tolstoy said that “Art is not, as the metaphysicians say, the manifestation of some mysterious idea of beauty or God; it is not, as the aesthetical physiologists say, a game in which man lets off his excess of stored-up energy; it is not the expression of man’s emotions by external signs; it is not the production of pleasing objects; and, above all, it is not pleasure; but it is a means of union among men, joining them together in the same feelings, and indispensable for the life and progress toward well-being of individuals and of humanity”.

Pairfum Art In Fragrance 1

So when we create something whether it is in the kitchen, workshop, class room, craft room or garden. We are as Oscar Wilde said taking part in the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known. If this is the case, then what we create is not only important for our own well-being but for the health and well being of the people and World around us.

Pairfum Art In Fragrance 28

Can A Product Be Art?

When does a mere product become a piece of art or an item of beauty?

“When science meets ingenuity. When creative invention and relentless research ignite a trend. When quality is pride of product. When a woman feels beauty in herself and a desire for life’s little luxuries is fulfilled.” – Huib Maat, in house Perfumer at PAIRFUM London.

Pairfum Art In Fragrance 14

Excerpt from Leo Tolstoy’s ‘What Is Art?’
(1896 – translated by Aylmer Maude (1900):

“… In order correctly to define art, it is necessary, first of all, to cease to consider it as a means to pleasure and to consider it as one of the conditions of human life.”

Pairfum Art In Fragrance 25

For most of us, our gardens, homes, rooms or work spaces are a canvas that we create and re-create over time.

It is an expression of how we see ourselves and how we wish to live. We use colour, texture, light and space to design and define the space around us.

By adding a ‘Perfumed Candle’ or a ‘Reed Diffuser’ you are also able to add a truly multi-sensorial experience to your life’s ‘Work of Art’ or ‘Art Work’.

PAIRFUM London’s Works of Art are available for sale in our online boutique.

Enjoy the Art in your home!
