When the sun is shining it signals a shift in so many things....

I am suddenly desperate to dig out my most wafty, chiffony blouse and start buying bunches of wild-looking, brightly coloured flowers every week. Isn't there something amazing about opening the windows every morning as soon as you wake up? I love musing over what new and interesting salad to prepare for tea every night too and, keeping our fingers crossed, we can eat in the garden!

It's the huge shift in the day to day things that makes me really happy come spring time...but so many people ask me how to scent their homes at this time of year. Heavier, cosy candle scents suddenly don't feel so right, so I asked the NEOM team to divulge their personal tips for scenting their homes in this weather. Here's what they said...

Nicola, Account Manager, on her Real Luxury Reed Diffuser...This light, gentle but sophisticated scent is beautiful in a reed diffuser for spring, the minute I open my front door I feel relaxed and calm. It's my personal favourite and always goes down well as a gift too.

Becky, Account Manager, on her Real Luxury Body Scrub...I have never used a scrub like this; we've had a few bloggers recently saying it's life changing! I have to agree! You only need to use it once a week and your skin is totally transformed into butter -soft -sundress -ready -loveliness!

Elaine, Account Manager, on her Body Oil...I've worked at so many of the big name beauty houses but I have never ever come across a body oil like the NEOM one -it's not just an amazing anti-ageing body treat that leaves your skin feeling about 10 years younger! But it's also great cuticle oil and the only thing I'll use as an after sun on me and my kids.

Zoe, Accounts Co-ordinator, on her Mini Room Mists...Our new mini mists in Inspiration or Sumptuous are going down a storm....I personally adore the Sumptuous one made with Rose and Neroli, I spritz the curtains every day and the scent lingers, its light and pretty.

Claudia, PR Manager on Travel Candles...Travel candles are gorgeous in summer, great for decorating a table when you've got friends round for (usually an indoor) barbecue! Inspiration is floral and pretty, and I really love Serenity too. The vanilla gives it a warm, beachy scent that makes the room smell yummy.

Nicola, Founder, on her Inspiration Reed Diffuser...The scent of summer is summed up in my Inspiration reed diffuser...Violet Chamomile and Cedarwood is a perfect accompaniment to sunny, breezy days and the best bit is it smells all day long! I have one in the hall, kitchen lounge and my wardrobe too so my clothes smell fresh!
