Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel
Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel

I’m always crushing on something scented or other. My nose knows no limits. Candy Crush is where I showcase the beautifully scented things I’m crushing on right now so you can hopefully develop a crush too.

It is my dream to one day be fancy enough to have Molton Brown hand wash and hand lotion in every bathroom. Just imagine beguiling your guests with matching hand products to cleanse and moisturise themselves in one of MB’s gorgeous scents. That’s the dream right, there isn’t it? So far I’m running at about 33.33% of this dream so I have a ways to go. The point I’m trying to make is that Molton Brown is a luxurious brand that makes lovely functional products that smell fantastic so I’m always very keen to hear what they’re up to.

The brand has just launched a brand new collection called Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel and let me tell you now, I’m crushing on it hard. The idea behind the collection is to journey “into the uncharted” and explore a marine-style fragrance with “unexpected elements”. The result is something that smells aquatic but not conventionally so (no Calone here, thank you very much), capturing all elements of the coast – the sea, the rocks, the mossy cliffs – and presenting them in a transportive way that makes each product feel more than just something functional. With this collection, Molton Brown brings beauty to the every day.

Candy Crush: Blu Mediterraneo La Collezione by Acqua di Parma

I bloody love Acqua di Parma. Everything they do is so refined, so luxurious and well, so Italian. They have a nose for beauty, presenting gorgeous, uncomplicated scents in handsome packaging. So yes, I always have time for Acqua di Parma’s many offerings, including the summer holiday tones of the Blu Meditteraneo range which celebrates the wonders of Italy via a series of citrus-centric haikus inspired by the Italian countryside. They are bottled sunshine and they are lovely.
