Laundry Day is the most commonly requested scent from The Botanical Candle archive so they are delighted to have it back for the spring. 


What is it about the smell of washing that is so evocative?


Perhaps it's memories of freshly laundered pyjamas after bath time as a kid, or being tucked up in soft, sweet-smelling sheets. The smell of certain detergents can trigger memories of best friends' houses, someone you sat next to in school, or a holiday cottage you spent happy times in as a child.


There appears to be a strong connection between the scent this everyday task carries, and feelings of safety, homeliness and belonging. Perhaps that's why Laundry Day hits the spot for so many people.


A truly fresh, bright and clean fragrance which delivers floral yet soapy notes to any space.


Great in hallways, where you catch the fragrance as you brush past. This is on the stronger end of our scent spectrum.
