One of the easiest ways to set yourself up for a great night’s sleep is to pay attention to your sleep hygiene.
Good sleep hygiene requires you to both have a regular routine and an optimised environment to facilitate healthy, uninterrupted sleep. Many steps can be taken to achieve the perfect sleep. While you should ensure that your bedroom is comfortable as well as free from distractions, a commitment to a calming and relaxing nightly routine and sleep schedule is also essential.
Your sleep hygiene can also be improved by creating other healthy habits throughout the day.
Tip 1: Go To Bed At The Same Time Every Night
For those with a more hectic lifestyle, it can become more difficult to be pinpoint accurate with your bed time. This effect is compounded as your biological clock is fantastically conditioned to anticipate sleep as the sun sets and everyday dusk arrives either slightly earlier or later than the night before.
However, it is vital that you keep to your sleeping routine with military precision, even if you find yourself waking up in what might feel the middle of the night.
Tip 2: Avoid The ‘Snooze’ Button At All Costs
Moving on from our first tip, even if you are in complete darkness, the snooze button should not be an option, should you want to regularly sleep well at night.
In fact, consistently oversleeping is not only poor sleep hygiene, but it has a strong causational correlation with depression, diabetes, fatigue and heart disease.
Especially when the clocks are wound back you may be tempted to sneak in an extra hour, but we would advise against it.
Tip 3: Enjoy The Sun – Whenever You Can
Sunlight is essential in preserving and maintaining not only your metal but also your physical health.
This isn’t to say that you have to walk around with a sun lounger, a simple stroll or jog would be perfect. The exposure to the sun and the wind can not only provide a new perspective, but the Vitamin D3 your skin will produce is something that many people lack despite it being an invaluable micronutrient.
In regards to your sleep, as our bodies are designed for you to be asleep at night, we are equally very much configured to be active during the daylight hours.
Try to work with your body clock, not against it when it comes to sunlight.
Tip 4: Avoid Screen Time Before Bed
Disconnect Electronic Devices!
Try to create 30-60 minutes of buffering time without any electronic devices. Phones, tablets, and laptops cause mental stimulation that is difficult to shut down. The screens also produce blue light, which can reduce melatonin production.
If your partner or roommate is less cooperative and still has their screens activated, then you may also want to invest in a sleep mask for your eyes.
Our bonus tip: you way wish to lightly scent your sleep mask using our pillow spray for a more calming experience.
Tip 5: Reduce Your Alcohol And Caffeine Consumption
If you wish to maintain your sleep hygiene, we recommend you moderate your consumption of alcohol and caffeine before you got to bed.
You may fall asleep quicker with alcohol, but you won’t sleep as well. It is best to stick to less intense levels of drinking, or even better, to avoid it alltogether in the evening to prevent your sleep getting disrupted.
As for caffeine, you are likely aware that it is a stimulant, rather than a relaxant. Try to avoid consuming it later in the day and especially just before you go to bed.
It is also worth noting that if you are drinking large amounts of coffee to start or get through the day, a far better solution could be found in simply improving the quality of your sleep.
Tip 6: Keep It Fresh When It Comes To Sleep Hygiene
After many months of lockdown and many more hours spent indoors during the summer months, it is important to optimise your living spaces, particularly your bedroom for a better night’s sleep.
You may wish to buy a fresh throw, add new cushions and pillows or purchase a new pair of bedsheets.
On the other hand, we would very much like to recommend that you should also try a deep sleep pillow spray. They are perfect for lightly scenting your pillows but also ideal for your linens and bed sheets.
Your sense of smell is much more potent than your sight and the perfect fragrance can set the scene for a perfect night’s sleep.
More Advice For Excellent Sleep Hygiene
There are many other tips to improve your sleep hygiene:
Avoid napping during the day, where possible.
Don’t eat before you go to bed.
Create calming aromas with a linen spray
Soak in a bath as part of your nightly routine or as a wind down from a more hectic day.

Without pollinators, there is, however, no movement of pollen.
A pollinator is anything that helps carry pollen from the male part of the flower (stamen) to the female part of the same or another flower (stigma). The movement of pollen must occur for a plant to become fertilized and produce fruits, seeds and young plants.
Without this fertilisation we cannot produce natural perfumes.
What is the Impact of Pollinators?
A third of everything we eat exists because of the work a pollinators, such as fruits, vegetables and seeds. Pollinators also support the habitat and food of animals.
At least 75 percent of all the flowering plants on earth are pollinated by insects and animals! Plants which help to stabilize our soil, clean our air, supply oxygen and support wildlife. The health of our ecosystems depends on pollinators.
Just in the US, honey bees pollinated $19 billion worth of crops in 2010 and the pollination by other insects contributed to just under $10 billion of crops.
In this article, we explain the ‘Magic of Perfume’ with 10 x quotes from perfumers and another 20 x quotes from perfume connoisseurs.
For millennia, we have been fascinated by parfum, scent and smell.
Why do Perfume and Scent captivate us much? What is the spell contained in a fragrance?
For some a fragrance is the finishing touch after their make up or the crowning glory at the end of our dressing rituals. This is what Christian Dior said: “Perfume is a mark of female identity and the final touch of her style.”
Blake Lively, the American actress, feels along the same lines: “One of the very few things that I do every single day is put on fragrance. If I’m not wearing makeup, … I still put my fragrance on. I will brush my teeth and put on my perfume.”
For others it is like a passion, according to Serge Lutens: “Perfume is potentially a carrier for the imagination. Perfume is thick; it is Poison and pure Desire; it is Eros in person.”
Fragrance has the power to change your mood. If you are feeling tired, it can revive you, or if you are feeling sad, it can lighten your mood. If you wish to relax and unwind, essential oils and the smell of certain flowers and herbs, such as Lavender, Jasmine or Sage, can work wonders.
Frances Mayes, the author of the book “Under the Tuscan Sun: At Home in Italy”, illustrates her experience of essential oils most vividly with this quote: “Anytime the perfume of orange and lemon groves wafts in the window; the human body has to feel suffused with a languorous well-being.”
Do you need to be transported to another time in your life? A fragrance can do that too.
Perfume has a transformative quality that awakens something in all of us, from admiring the precious liquid inside the beautiful bottles, to an aroma that can teleport you to a time or place in an instant. “Perfume is the key to our memories” according to Kate Lord Brown, author of the book “The Perfume Garden”.
Apart from the fact that perfume is a confidence and mood booster, it also enhances any home or occasion.
Think of a soy candle or a reed diffuser:
Don’t we all love how a luxuriously scented candle, its molten wax and flickering flame create magical moments in the evening?
What about the scent of a ‘warm welcome’ from a fragranced reed diffuser in the hallway?
They create something to remember, according to this quote from Stanislas de Boufflers: “Pleasure is the flower that passes; remembrance, the lasting perfume.”
We have chosen the following 10 x fragrance quotes to help explain the Magic of Perfume:
“Each time we inhale or smell a Perfume, we are all going on our own very personal Perfume journey.” – Huib Maat. We obviously have to start with a quote from our own in-house perfumer.
“The beauty of fragrance is that it speaks to your heart, … and hopefully someone else’s.” – Elizabeth Taylor
“Ladies, a man will never remember your handbag, but he will remember your perfume.” – Olivier Creed
“Good manners and good cologne is what transforms the man into a gentleman!”- Tom Ford
“Perfume is like a parenthesis, a moment of freedom, peace, love and sensuality in between the disturbances of modern living.”- Sonia Rykiel
“A wise man knows cologne is the most powerful weapon in the fight for female attention.”- Marcello Mastroianni
“Just like men, perfume is never perfect right away; you have to let it seduce you.”- Jean Patou
“The best investments in every man’s life are a custom tailored suit and an expensive cologne. It’s like buying the best first impression.”- Massimo Ferragamo
“No elegance is possible without perfume. It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory.” – Coco Chanel
“A perfume is like a piece of clothing, a message, a way of presenting oneself a costume that differs according …” – Paloma Picasso
At the beginning of the piece I did say that it was about 10 x quotes that explain The Magic Of Perfume, but here at Pairfum London there are a few additional quotes from both perfumers and perfume connoisseurs that we love to share:
One by the wonderful Marilyn Monroe: “There are no women who do not like perfume, there are women who have not found their scent.” Have you found your perfect perfume?
And another quote, that set a few hearts racing is from Marilyn Monroe as well: “What do I wear to bed? Why, Chanel No. 5 of course.” Is there magic in this potion? She certainly had elements of a ‘femme fatale’.
Here is a perfumery quote by one of her husbands, Arthur Miller: “Can anyone remember love? It’s like trying to summon up the smell of roses in a cellar. You might see a rose, but never the perfume.”
The American journalist H. L. Mencken said this: “An idealist is one who, on noticing that roses smell better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup”. Who could not love an idealist?
Estée Lauder is often quoted with these lines about the invisible extra: “Perfume is like a new dress, it makes you quite simply marvellous.”
Christian Dior came out with a similarly beautiful quote: “Long after one has forgotten what a woman wore, the memory of her perfume lingers.” This quote clearly hints at the ‘Magic of Perfume’ and the power of a signature scent.
Sonia Rykiel also swears by the lasting effect of fragrance: “Perfume follows you; it chases you and lingers behind you. It’s a reference mark. Perfume makes silence talk.”
We wouldn’t quite agree with Coco Chanel when she said: “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” There is more to woman’s personality than fragrance but it is certainly a reflection of the persona.
What do you think of Giovanni Ruffini’s quote: “Beauty is an exquisite flower, and its perfume is virtue.”
Is anyone looking for pleasures without regret: “Perfume is like cocktails without the hangover, like chocolate without the calories, like an affair without tears, like a vacation from which you never have to come back.” (Marian Bendeth)
We very much like another fragrance quote by Coco Chanel: “Wear perfume wherever you want to be kissed!”
With this perfume quote, Christian Dior gives another clue about the power of perfume: “A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting.”
Most of us, have some strong childhood memories that have a fragrance attached to them. David Leavitt has these: “Childhood smells of perfume and brownies.”
Most of us will have moments when one of our memory’s drawers open like this: “This is the fragrance of my grandmother!” Marcel Proust feels the same way and expresses it beautifully in this quotation: “Perfume is that last and best reserve of the past, the one which when all our tears have run dry, can make us cry again!”
Francis Kurkdjian tried to express the same with this quotation: “Perfume is the art that makes memory speak.”
“A woman wears both jewellery and fragrance, and both recall happy moments of her life.” A quote by Alain Boucheron along the same lines.
The perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena feels the same: “Perfume is a story in odor, sometimes poetry in memory.”
Whereas the fashion designer Donatella Versace comes straight to the point when it comes to scent: “I like perfume and flowers.”
Speaking about ingredients, these are the words of Giorgio Armani: “A perfume is more than an extract, it is a presence.”
If you are looking to create Magical Experiences with Fragrance, we can highly recommend our Perfume Experience Box.
We hear from our customers that they have a wonderful time trialling and sharing all of the different Eau de Parfums with their friends & family. It feels like opening the door to a perfumery in their own home.
Does anyone need more proof that there is Magic in Perfume?
Why fall in love with your partner, wife or husband once when you can fall in love with them over and over again by simply sending love messages to show everyday what they mean to you.
This could be anything from leaving a written love message on the pillow, in the car, the briefcase or even the purse. You might even surprise with a new sweet message by text when they are at work.
On that special day (perhaps many years ago), the magic words of “I love you” and “I do” cemented a bond between the two of you to form a very sacred relationship.
It was a message of love when two of you vowed to show complete devotion to each other for the rest of your lives.
Love is the most important element in your life, it gives meaning to everything you do and puts everything else into perspective.
Surprise Your Partner
While the Bond remains true, its expression and manifestations can change over time.
The once powerful “I Love You” might have now become a routine remark, when in reality your feelings towards your partner have grown much deeper over time.
In fact, often our feeling of love is impossible to express with mere words, as our emotions as complex, faceted and continuously evolving and deepening.
Whatever we say, it always seems that we fall short of what we actually feel and would love to express.
Not Just At Christmas
Why wait for a specific occasion to share some love messages to demonstrate to your partner how much their love means to you?
Expressing your love and buying beautiful gifts for each other on days such as Valentine’s Day, your Anniversary, Birthdays and Christmas, are the most common situations.
All relationships require continuous effort and there is nothing easier than sending a short message of love for no other reason than because you love your partner but what do you write?
There is no doubt that 21st century life is busy and hectic which makes it difficult to carve out the time and patience for the muse in your heart to find the right words to express your feelings.
What do you do?
