Garden notes are filling the air this month as we linger longer outdoor. We’re not all green-fingered, however can nonetheless admire the scents and sensations of grass, greenhouses and hedgerows; these could be superbly nostalgic smells, from sun-warmed tomatoes to the earthier notes of rhubarb.

We love Carrière Freres’ tomato-scented diffuser (€68), and True Grace’s Vine Tomato candle (€28), each at Seagreen (www.seagreen.ie). Margiela Replica’s From The Garden scent captures tomato leaf and geranium, impressed by perfumer Olivier Cresp’s childhood recollections.

We’ve at all times cherished Parisian model Buly for its beautiful presentation, making buying an actual expertise. Buly’s latest fragrance assortment, Les Jardins Français, champions quirky notes comparable to basil, parsley, tomato, carrot, cucumber, rhubarb and even candy potato (€120 for discovery set of six minis; www.buly1803.com). Goutal’s Un Jardin Aromatique candle captures grass, mint and sage in a stunning wash of inexperienced (€66.45; www.lookfantastic.ie).Hermès perfumer Christine Nagel has been intrumental in popularising garden-inspired scents, and her Eau de Basilic Pourpre is an emerald magnificence.

Not everybody loves rhubarb, however I’ve a smooth spot for it. In perfumes, it has a beautiful pink sweetness with out being sickly, not like many fruity notes. No surprise it’s quietly changing into a key be aware – discover it in perfumes by Byredo, Perfumer H and L’Occitane. For an inexpensive tackle the pattern, attempt Electric Rhubarb by Floral Street, at Marks & Spencer (from €38). I’m intrigued by Marvis’ Sweet & Sour Rhubarb toothpaste, too … although the basic mint is a safer wager (€7.45; www.lookfantastic.ie).

For extra flower energy, look to C.Atherley, the geranium-centred model created by designer Cath Kidston, now stocked at Howbert & Mays’ backyard shops. There’s physique lotion, hand cream and an excellent tub oil, all with the peppery signature scent. Geranium additionally scents the Augustinus Bader physique oil, and Bamford’s natural magnificence; attempt their therapies on the Cashel Palace Hotel’s spa, the place the pool overlooks lovely gardens. www.howbertandmays.ie
