Sleep and Insomnia – How to Fall Asleep with Fragrance

There are a number of Scents that can be used to help you relax and de-stress, and one of the best notes for this is Lavender.Pairfum Flacon Perfume Linen Fabric Signature White Lavender

Lavender oil is mainly composed of linalyl acetate and linalool, which are chemicals that are both rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. Studies have shown that these compounds inhibit several neurotransmitters, and have a sedative and pain-relieving effect. In humans, lavender also lowers the heart rate and reduces anxiety leading to a more restful and calm nights sleep.

What does it mean”A Rose by Any Other Name”

Pairfum Home Fragrance Rose Fragranced Candle Sidney Pearce

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” is a popular reference to William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, in which Juliet seems to argue that it does not matter that Romeo is from her family’s rival house of Montague.

Does Ice Have A Smell Fragrance Perfume

Does Ice Have a Smell?

As Perfumers we get asked interesting and sometimes strange questions from time to time, you may think that one of them is “Does Ice Have a Smell”?

Ice Smell Geometric Fragrance Nasa 8

Unusual it may be, but not as strange as you may first think.

Ice Smell Geometric Fragrance Nasa 1

Why would Ice have a smell? when it is simply water frozen into a solid state…

Well your next question should be does Water have a smell?

Ice Smell Geometric Fragrance Nasa 2

With Christmas fast approaching and all of the things that you have to worry about, I am sure that one of them is not does Ice have a smell..

Santa Claus is coming - Merry Christmas from Pairfum

However if you are planning to offer your guests drinks that contain Ice cubes, then it may not be such a daft question after all.

Christmas Light Wine Rose Room Fragrance Reed Diffuser

So in answer to the question “Does Ice Have a Smell”? the simple answer is Yes…..

Ice will trap and hold odours from its surroundings, and this applies to naturally formed or ‘Home Made Ice’. In the case of home made Ice that is normally formed and stored in our refrigerators along side food. Then it can and may capture the wonderful aroma of your Garlic Bread.

Freshly Baked Bread 1

Just to be clear like most people we do not object to the heartwarming aroma of oven baked garlic bread, but I am sure that it would not be as welcome or enticing when added to a glass of ‘Scotch on the Rocks’.

So when making or storing Ice over the Holiday period or at any time, just take note of what you are storing next to it.

Ice Smell Geometric Fragrance Nasa 4

A good rule of thumb is to use your ice within 3 days after it’s made, having it sitting for any longer increases the risk of it catching odours from nearby food.

The fact that Ice does trap smells or odours is also exciting for us as Perfumers

As it allows you to infuse certain notes, and Nature does it all the time in Glaciers, Frozen lakes, Mountain passes or your garden puddle.

Ice Smell Geometric Fragrance Nasa 5

If you would like to test this out for yourself, then why not try adding a few drops of a favourite food essence to your nest batch of Ice cubes.

You could also experiment by adding, lemon, orange, lime peel or juice to your mix.

PAIRFUM citrus lime lemon bergamot grapefruit home fragrance perfume

How about a herb or spice twist, just mix them in a jug or container and then pour into your Ice moulds…

PAIRFUM herb basil natural room fragrance perfume

The sky is the limit – but remember they are meant to be added to a drink and should be safe to ingest…

It could also be a fun and easy way to get the children involved in the preparations, and the worst that can happen is that they have an early and naturally perfumed cold bath….

Lilla Tabasso Glass Flowers Homo Faber Pairfum London

Glass Flowers?

At Homo Faber, the artist Lilla Tabasso exhibits glass flowers of astonishing realism.

The biologist turned artist, uses Murano glass to create her surprisingly realistic flowers.

The milan-based biologist-turned-designer mixes perfect and imperfect in her hyper-realistic murano glass flowers.

Using her knowledge of botany, her flowers show nature in all its wonderful detail and endearing imperfections.

Here at Pairfum London, we feel it is a pity that they are missing a fragrance.

They would make wonderful diffusers!

Pairfum London Azuma Makoto Undersurface Flower Root Fragrance

Undersurface Flowers?

The artist Azuma Makoto contrasts wild roots with perfect blossoms in his ‘Undersurface Flower’ compositions.

Azuma is a Japanese flower artist who pioneered the genre of the ‘botanical sculpture’.

Here at Pairfum London we like how he draws attention to ‘roots’.

In perfumery, ‘roots’ are a frequently used source of natural fragrance ingredients that is regularly underestimated.

For example ‘Orris’, is a root that has a wonderful olfactive profile:

powdery, resembling violet, slightly stemy and woody.

More commonly known roots used for extracting essential oils are ‘Angelica’, ‘Ginger’ and ‘Vetiver’.

Have a look at the perfumes in the Pairfum Collection to see how we use ‘roots’ in our fragrances.

Perfume Soria Moria Sauna Feast For The Senses 9

Sauna – Feast for the Senses

The golden Soria Moria sauna looks like a veritable feast for the senses.

This wonderful sauna is located on ‘Bandak Lake’ in Norway, 160km southwest of Oslo, in a picturesque mountainous landscape offering breathtaking views.

The shingles of the cladding shimmer like ‘gold’ in reference to a local, well-known Norwegian fairy tale about a golden palace in the mountains.

What intrigued us as perfumers about this project are the unusual sensorial experience this sauna offers:

  • the woody & herbal notes of the sauna itself,
  • the clean, fresh, fragrance filled mountain air of Norway, and
  • the watery aquatic notes of the lake

To create this wonderfully natural sensation in your home, we suggest our fragrance “SPA” and then select your favourite product in our online boutique.

Studio Drift Robot Bouquet Flower Bloom Scent Pairfum London 7

Robot Flowers?

Here at Pairfum London we don’t like the idea of ‘Robot Flowers’, as it feels ‘unnatural’ and we would expect them to lack ‘fragrance’.

And yet, we were intrigued by “Studio Drift’s” installation of a ‘hanging bouquet’ of robotic flowers that bloom, as you approach them.

18 mechanical flowers have been choreographed to work in unison as part of a kinetic installation during Dutch Design Week 2018.

The meadow is meant to be an upside down landscape and intends to remind the visitor of the impermanence of changing seasons and the characteristics of natural growth processes.

In other words, the elements we like about nature.

We do find it novel but rather unusual, to use Robots to remind us of the beauty of nature.

Clearly the installation is missing fragrance!
