Every so often, us girls at The Amazing Blog get to try products that are unlike anything else on the market. When these opportunities come along we jump at the chance to feature these unique products. And this is the case with the Pairfum Canopy Infusion room diffuser. I’m sure everyone out there has seen some sort of reed diffuser, and as lovely as they are, there don’t even come close to the Canopy Infusion diffuser.
We have the diffuser in the Trail of White Petals fragrance and we can’t imagine how amazing the other scents smell if they’re anything like this one! Not only do they fragrance a room beautifully but they look so elegant as well. The diffusers come in a variety of fragrances, so whatever your scent preference, Pairfum is sure to have one to suit you. The Canopy Infusion diffusers are created by coating an air-dried ‘seagrave’ leaf in a concentrated perfume infusion. This then fragrances the room for up to 4 weeks, when you can replace the diffuser for a new one. The Canopy Infusion diffuser comes with 6 large leaves and are all hand-crafted, meaning each leaf is unique. Even better still, all the packaging is fully biodegradable, meaning every part of your Canopy diffuser is healthy for you and the environment. The Canopy Infusion diffuser is currently taking up residency on top of our cabinets in the office, but this unique diffuser would look great in most decors, and rooms in your house. There are also a ton of different ways you can display your diffuser, we’ve left it in it’s stand, but feel free to get creative with it!
If you’re looking for a unique and long-lasting way to scent your space we really recommend having a look at Pairfum‘s Canopy Infusion diffuser and their selection of home products. Available to purchase from here for £19.99.

With the early April sunshine now just a distant memory and next month set to be the coldest May in over a hundred years it feels like winter all over again here at The Amazing Blog. And when the skies are this dismal and grey, there’s nothing I like better at the end of a long day at work than a nice, long soak in a hot bath with an accompanying glass of wine. And as I’m always on the lookout for new bathtime treats, I was thrilled to come across the French-themed Miss Patisserie.
Designed to cater for your every need – whether you want to relax, de-stress or refresh, Miss Patisserie offers a range off luxurious products that put the fun back into bath time! The fragrance and essential oils are designed to evoke the senses and have been created with past times and fond memories in mind and they use natural ingredients including both epsom and dead sea salts all of which have amazing benefits on the body. I tried the pastel coloured French Macaroons, which look just like the real thing and are named after the most glamorous French cities including Paris and Cannes. Bursting with fragrance and fizzy salts, these bath accesorries are a real French delicacy! Available online from the Miss Patisserie website.

Every year since I turned 15, my family always gives the women a bottle of their favourite fragrance for their birthday. Year after year I would see my family get the same fragrance and I never understood why. I would always want new fragrances each year because as the saying goes, the more the merrier! I never thought I would find that one scent that I wanted to claim as my own, that was until I smelt the sublime fragrance of Askett & English Absolute.
Artisan perfumer Askett & English developed two classic unisex colognes while located amongst the beautiful rolling landscapes, high beech woods and green fields of Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. Both fragrances, Absolute and Essential, use the finest ingredients to give off a subtle and understated message of quality and taste.
Askett Essential is a light yet invigorating scent that is fit for any circumstance. It has a light lemon scent mixed with a bright sunny morning with the hint of cedars.
Askett Absolute is a complex and intriguing scent that can fit for an outdoors activity or in the office. It has a heady scent of neroli which develops into old wood, moss and musk that creates a quite sensual yet professional fragrance.
Priced at £60 – for 100ml, you can find the product at Les Senteurs, Havie & Hudson, William Evans Ltd, and Roullier White in London. For other stockists click here.
