While we haven’t really suffered with the cold this year, it’s been an oddly mild winter with far too much rain. Rain means we tend to stay in more than we normally would, and our houses get stuffy. I feel cooped up when I can’t get out and I know that many people are positively gagging for spring and a break in the weather so that they can fling open their doors and windows and get some fresh, clean air into their homes.If the weather isn’t going to break though, it’s unsurprising that we reach for the smelly candles to give the atmosphere a little lift. In Britain we’re completely obsessed with smellies. According to 2011 figures, people in the UK spend a million pound a day on things that will freshen up their surroundings! This can include scented candles and air fresheners, along with the new-fangled motion-activated sprays and plug-in air fresheners . Pot pourri was beginning to seem a little old fashioned but now that many people are decorating their homes with a retro or vintage theme, particularly the retro styled French farmhouse type home so favoured by style magazines, pot pourri is still big business! Trade shows are still selling barrels and barrels of the stuff to the retro savvy retailer.
In 2010 sales of scented candles alone grew five per cent to £41million. Pot pourri sales reached £6 million. Altogether, some £367million is spent on making our homes, offices and cars smell super fresh according to research by Mintel.The thing to remember of course is that air fresheners are not just about functionality. They’re not just there to cover the smell of unwashed children, late night curries and kebabs or wet dogs. Candles are particularly and increasingly renowned for adding ambience to your home.
