Advent Has Started!

Advent Start Christmas Candle Tree

Advent 2019

This Advent began on Sunday the 1st of December and will end on Monday the 24th of December.

In many Christian Churches, Advent is a time of expectant waiting, a preparation for the celebration of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ.

The word ‘advent’ derives from a Latin word meaning “coming”.

Advent is the beginning of the Western Christian Calendar Year, which starts on the 4th Sunday before Christmas, also referred to as ‘Advent Sunday’.

As a sign of Advent having started, Churches and many Homes light a candle on an Advent wreath. An additional candle is lit with each coming Sunday until 4 candles are burning on Christmas.

In Sweden, the practice of erecting a Chrismas tree and Christmas also starts with Advent.

Why not start your Advent with a beautiful, natural Snow Crystal Candle by Pairfum?

Then add another with each Sunday until Christmas Eve.

Yoga Benefits Top 5 Reasons

Yoga Benefits: Top 5 Reasons That Will Convince You To Start Today!

Introduction:

Have you every thought about Yoga and not dared to try it because of some preconceived ideas or fear of ridicule, maybe you have just wondered how can Yoga help me or what are the “Yoga Benefits”?

In this article, we present the Top 5 x reasons for practicing Yoga, in the hope they will convince you to start Yoga.

Don’t worry, the benefits of yoga start straight away and not just when you have become a seasoned guru or mastered the most challenging poses.

Yoga Benefits Improve Posture Stone

1: Reduce Stress & Anxiety

By simply slowing our breathing down (deep breaths) it will sooth and quieten the mind, yoga and meditation allows us to be more peaceful and reduce our stress levels.

According to a US national survey, over 85% of people who practice yoga reported that it helped them to improve their general health.

Yoga is considered to be a complete mind-body exercise which is both beneficial for your mental and physical health.

2: Improves Your Quality Of Sleep

It is commonly believed that there are are four streams of Yoga, Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Jnana Yoga and Raja Yoga and from these other streams and practices have emerged.

One of which is Nidra Yoga which can be used to help you relax and to greatly improve the quality of your sleep.

By helping you to unwind and de-stress it allows you to achieve a relaxed state between awakening and sleep, which enables you to let go of worries, negative thoughts and any emotional stress that may have been caused by a hard day at work or caring for your family.

You’ll be able to enjoy a much deeper, longer, more energising and invigorating sleep.

Your sleep can be further enhanced by including the addition of a fragrance, the use of Lavender being one of the best known fragrances for this.

However, other fragrances such as Chamomile, Bergamot, Jasmine, Rose and Sandalwood are also known to help foster relaxation and sleep.

One of the easiest ways to include or use a fragrance while preparing for sleep or doing Yoga is to use a natural spray like the PAIRFUM London Flacon Sleep Spray

Don’t worry, we have not forgotten to tell you how it works – you will just have to read a little further to get the full explanations in point 5!

3: Yoga Is For Everyone!

Yoga really is for everyone, despite your age, gender or physical condition.

There is no need to be a contortionist or a master of the martial arts.

You just need a quite & pleasant place to sit or lie down in and comfortable, practical clothing (at least in the beginning).

After a while you realise that you can do Yoga anywhere:

  • standing waiting in a queue,
  • sitting on the bus, train or on an aeroplane,
  • any other place, …

Well, … I am not suggesting that you decide to do actual Yoga poses while in a queue or using public transport. Instead, we recommend meditation for these moment. Meditation is at the heart of Yoga and really deserves an article all to itself.

There are postures for beginners that will help you to improve your flexibility, stability and will allow you to strengthen your muscles, plus they increase your concentration levels.

In fact, you might like to encourage your children to take up Yoga as early as possible, …

How about prenatal yoga ? There are postures designed for pregnant women.

Now, … you can’t start much earlier than that.

4: Enhanced Brain Activity

In many ways, our brains are like a muscle and practising yoga will have similar effects for your brain as going to the gym has for our body.

Just as with meditation, yoga can improve your concentration level – and it does not stop there..

According to a study led by Harris Eyre in 2013, yoga would significantly increase your spatial and visual memory.

In fact Dr. Eyre noticed in the study, that the participating seniors who were practising Kundalini yoga, had improved as fast as the other participants who were doing memory exercises.

The main difference was that the participants who were doing yoga also improve with regards to reduced depression and visuospatial memory during the same period.

5: Trigger Yoga Benefits Through Your Olfactory Memory

Did you know that you can train your brain to immediately start to relax while practising Yoga, by including a fragrance in the background?

This is how it is done:

  • select a suitable background fragrance and we have included some suggestions below
  • use a candle or spray to disperse the scent before or/and during your yoga session

The additional benefit of using a background fragrance is that your brain associates it with yoga or relaxation and when it comes to the time to prepare for bed & sleep, you can automatically trigger the relaxing effects of Yoga by releasing the same fragrance in the bedroom.

Some practical applications would be:

  • select one of the Pairfum Flacon Sleep Sprays and spray a little fragrance onto your Yoga mat every time you practice
  • before going to bed, spray a small amount of your chosen fragrance onto your pillows, sheets or duvet.

You will notice after a short period of time that your brain associates your chosen scent with the benefits of Yoga & Relaxation and that you will enjoy a better night’s sleep.

As we have mentioned earlier in the article, the best notes to help foster relaxation and sleep are Lavender, Chamomile, Bergamot, Jasmine, Rose and Sandalwood.

Olfactive Tools For Yoga

Suitable Fragrances:

If the fragrance you have chosen as your yoga workmate is either Lavender or Vanilla, then you are in for some additional benefits, as studies have shown that these essential oils are able to lower your blood pressure, heart rate and skin temperature.

Setting the Mood:

Using a natural candle made with essential oils during yoga, not only sets the mood but enables you to release your chosen fragrance during the session.

Choosing any of the fragrances we have previously suggested will be a perfect companion for you on your yoga journey.

Make sure to use a natural, non-toxic, non-sooting, clean burning candle.

It is well worth remembering that the practice of Yoga and meditation, improves both mental and physical health, memory and relaxation.

So with all these benefits in mind, why not give it a go?

By including some simple tools, such as a candle or a natural reed diffuser, it will help you create your own little corner of paradise, where you leave negative thoughts or emotions and the ‘Cares of the World’ behind.

Yoga Benefits Top 5 Reasons Sleep Heal

In conclusion:

Combining Yoga & Natural Fragrances will increase the speed with which you obtain your Yoga Benefits!

So now, … what are you waiting for?

Your motto should be:

Ready, Steady, Yoga!

Seaside Fragrance Sex On The Beach Sunset Perfumer Reason

Has The Seaside Lost Its Smell?
Could Sex On The Beach Be The Reason?

Has the Seaside Lost its Smell and why would Sex on the Beach be the reason?

Who among us does not love a trip to the seaside and all that comes with it: the fresh air, soft sand, the sound of the sea and the tangy aroma we associate with it?

The fresh, salty smell of the ocean is one of the most distinctive smells on the planet.

It evokes memories of crashing waves, sandy beaches, the cry of seagulls and if we are very lucky, the wonderful aroma of Fishing Boats, Ice-Cream & Suntan Lotion.

While travelling for work recently, I decided to stay at a quintessential English Seaside town.

In the days leading up to my visit to the seaside I found that I was really looking forward to it, and I am sure if I could have gotten away with it, I would have brought along a bucket & spade, a fishing net for use in the rock pools and flip-flops.

Then, … I remembered that I had not seen or used my seaside essentials in over thirty years.

(Well, … that is my version of events and I’m sticking to it)

Seaside Fragrance Sex On The Beach English Village

After booking into a small family run hotel, I decided that if I was going to the seaside, then staying in one of the large chain run Hotels was not on.

So, on my first evening there, I went for a walk along the beach.

(Sorry, … but you will have to read a little further on for the ‘sex on the beach’ part)

The sun was setting and a beautiful warm breeze was blowing off the sea, I was in Heaven and had decided to keep an eye out for shops that would sell my seaside essentials after all.

It may have been tiredness or the simple fact that I was so delighted to be by the sea, but it was not until the following morning when I went for a walk on the beach before breakfast and heading off to work, that I noticed that the Seaside had ‘Lost its Smell’!

As a Perfumer for me the World revolves around smell, and if an aroma as distinctive as the Sea is not discernible, then there is something seriously amiss?

Seaside Smell Fragrance Sex On The Beach Sunset

If someone asked you ‘what does the sea smell of’ or ‘why does the sea smell like the sea’, would or could the answer be sand, sea breeze or even as the Victorians believed Ozone?

Not one single note can truly conjure up the smell of the sea.

So, … while standing wondering where the seaside smell had gone and at the same time burying my toes in the sand, which is something along with paddling that is a prerequisite when at the seaside,

I noticed that there was not a single strand of seaweed anywhere to be seen on the beach, no seaweed, no seashells only driftwood.

I was delighted to see that there was no rubbish on the beach, but not a single strand of seaweed either?

Sea Perfume Sex On The Beach Seaweed Algae

Then I remembered reading an article where scientists have finally discovered how the seaside odour is produced and it can all be traced back to an enzyme that allows algae to survive in their salty seawater environment.

The smell we recognise as ‘The Sea’ is produced by algae on the ocean surface that release an aromatic compound called dimethylsulfide (DMS) into the air.

While scientists identified ‘DMS’ as the molecule responsible for the distinctive smell of the ocean some years ago, exactly how it was produced in the ocean was unclear.

What was clear was that the molecule plays an important role in cloud formation and also provides chemical attractants that guides various marine animals including some sea birds, invertebrates, and even mammals – toward potential food supplies.

So in our world it is the equivalent to a restaurant sign saying it is open for business …

Sea Side Fragrance Sex On The Beach Kelp Algae

The researchers also noted that the gene appears to be present in many other marine organisms including ‘Seaweeds’ that also release DMS.

This may explain why so many plants that grow under the ocean or along the coastline have such a distinctive seaside odour, it may also explain why on some days the smell of the sea can be stronger than on others as different algae blooms flourish.

It may also be the reason why we not only know the smell of the sea, but the food that it provides has that distinct flavour that we all associate with it, a fresh brininess that creates that ocean flavour.

When discussing this phenomena with another Perfumer, they mentioned reading an article that spoke about seaweed reproduction, and the fact that during certain times of the year seaweed has a stronger ‘Seaside Odour’ than normal and, …

that scientists had discovered that during the seaweed reproductive cycle the female produced a lot more of these volatile compounds, so that all those handsome virile male seaweed swimming around in the ocean would smell this wonderful Perfume and come a calling.

Fragrance Sex On The Beach Seaside Village English

This gives a whole new meaning to ‘Sex on the Beach’.

So, … the next time you have the opportunity to visit the seaside, spare a thought for that humble wonderful edible seaside dweller, that not only helps provides us with the Seaside smell we love so much, but helps with the formation of clouds and that feeds a myriad of other marine life.

Another thought that should pop into your head is, that if this very special algae is smart enough to use a Perfume to attract their perfect mate.

Then this is the perfect definition of ‘Sex on the Beach’!

What are you waiting for?

A trip to the Seaside perhaps?

Or, … would your time be better spent finding out what is your ‘Perfect Perfume’?

That way your perfect partner will come to You …

Windsor Park Azalea Intoxicating Perfume under the influence

Walking While Under The Influence

Windsor Park Intoxicating Perfume Rhododendron under the influence

Have you ever gone for a walk and come to the realisation that you are walking while under the influence?

That is what we experienced yesterday while walking in Great Windsor Park.

Just before you start tutting or shaking your head in disbelief

I can assure you that everyone who was walking, running, cycling, skating, or being pushed or pulled in some form of a wheeled chariot …. was doing it while under the influence..

It is also not a cause for alarm, nor was it a case of what is described as “Rimé et al” a social sharing of emotions.

Although thinking about it in another sense, it was a sharing of emotions

People had, whether they were aware of it or not while passing through certain sections of the park, become totally intoxicated with the perfumes emanating from the flowering shrub’s, the Azaleas and Rhododendron (the ‘Rose Tree’), the Chestnut trees, Lilac’s, Mock Orange, Honeysuckle, Cut Grass, Forget-me-nots    and the last of the Bluebells…

We were all experiencing a walk through one of ‘Nature’s Natural Perfumeries’.

Windsor Park Intoxicating Fragrance Rhododendron under the influence

The only sounds that you could pick up wafting on the fragrant air was the sound of birdsong, the buzzing of Bees, lake water lapping or the occasional child’s laugh.

It was one of those magical Spring days, when Life and nature is intoxicating..

PAIRFUM London’s suggestion is that, wherever you live, in a Town, the Country, by the Sea, …

Put on your shoes, go somewhere and walk (or run) while under the Influence …

Kates Garden Bluebell Forest Bench

Kate’s Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show

Tomorrow Tuesday the 21st of May see’s the opening of the Chelsea Flower show and the unveiling of Kate’s Garden

For this years show the Duchess of Cambridge has designed and helped build a garden called ‘Back to Nature’

The inspiration for this multi-sensorial garden comes from both childhood memories and her work on early childhood development.

Kates Garden Child Playing

Her firm belief that time spent outdoors during childhood playing an exploring, helps build a good foundation for children to become healthy, happy adults.

Kates Garden Child Climbing A Tree

The Garden has been co-created with landscape architects Andrée Davies & Adam White of ‘Davies White Ltd’ Chelsea Gold Medal & People’s Choice award winners, in conjunction with the Royal Horticultural Society.

The Duchess’s theme in the garden also highlights and combines her work as part of the ‘Heads Together Foundation’ that helps people to come together, speak about and care for their mental health.

The aim of the garden is to show what benefits the natural world can bring to mental and physical well-being.

One of the themes that was intertwined into the Garden concept was that of  ‘Forest bathing’.

Kates Garden Forest Bathing

If you have never heard of this before, then we can reassure you that you are not the only one…

‘Forest Bathing’ also known as the practice of ‘Shinrin-Yoku’, is a Japanese concept where research has shown that immersion in forests and other natural environments promotes healing and wellness.

So a visit to a forest is regarded as being similar to natural aromatherapy.

Following research by Japanese scientists that spending at least two hours surrounded by nature in a Forest or natural surroundings, helped to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, boost our immune systems and improve memory and concentration.

The Japanese government in the 1980s introduced it as a national health programme.

It was also discovered during the studies that ‘phytoncides’ which are chemicals released by trees have an anti-microbial effect on humans

So for all of those who thought ‘Tree Hugging’ was only a form of protest to stop felling, then think again…

Kates GardenTree Hugging Man

We should all be walking through, spending time in woods and forests and when no one is looking giving a tree a ‘Little Hug’.

Kates Garden Tree Hugging By Children

Why not make a trip and immerse yourself into beautiful forest surroundings, and take the opportunity to breathe deeply, de-stress, and enjoy the wonders of a Forest.

Some of the other wonderful aspects of Kate’s Garden include a swing seat, a tree-house, edible plants, a campfire and a rustic den.

What Child would not find this garden enchanting and wonderful to play in..

In fact all of us here at PAIRFUM London, think that the Child within us all would love it xx

Perfume Rainwater Pine Tree Forest Wood Ozone

Rainwater Sculpture in Pine Forest

Fragrance Rainwater Pine Tree Forest Wood Ozone

Suspended among the pine trees, is a ‘rainwater sculpture’ that looks like a chandelier.

In John Grade Studio’s “Reservoir” sculpture, 5,000 x droplets collect rainwater, with each one attached to a clear net suspended within the tree canopy.

As rainwater (or snow) collects within each droplet or evaporates again from it, the sculpture transforms itself dynamically with the changes in its weight.

Fragrance Rain Water Pine Tree Forest Wood Ozone

As a perfumery house, what intrigues us is the combination of the olfactive profiles of pine trees and rainwater in this sculpture.

  • Rainwater: watery, green, clean, slightly sulphuric,
  • Pine: a woody, resinous note with the essence of pine needle

We expect that around the sculpture will be a unique fragrance sensation reminiscent of a Fougère (Fern in English) with its interaction between:

  • a woody, earthy & green note on the one hand, and
  • watery, damp and cool freshness on the other.

Fougère / Fern is not derived or extract from a ingredient. Instead, it is an accord that endeavours to recreate the note of a green, damp forest through the combination of Lavender, Oakmoss and Coumarin. Fougère Royale by Houbigant is typically credited with being the first of this kind, which has today become a classic masculine fragrance category.

Fragrance Forest Rain Water Pine Tree Wood Ozone

Here at Pairfum London we have two wonderful fragrances in our perfume collection that are classified as Fougère or Fern:

  • SPA
  • White Lavender

Both perfumes are available in our online boutique in various Home Fragrance products:

  • reed diffusers,
  • perfumed candles,
  • fragrance room sprays,
  • linen & fabric sprays, and
  • wardrobe sachets.
