The Scent of My Childhood

Hi Guy’s 🙂

Hope you’ve had a fantastic week! I honestly look forward to Fridays the most now and not just because it is the start of the weekend, but I really love doing these review 😀 And I hope you like reading them 😀  If you missed last weeks post you can catch up here. I’m still in awe of what that product has done for my skin 🙂

A little while ago I was visiting Strokestown House (Travel Tuesday coming soon) and while in the gift shop spotted this lovely display of candles and air fresheners by Bog Standard. Being candle mad I had to pick one up. I loved all of the fragrances they had but hedgerow really stood out to me because it smelled like the scent of my childhood, of long summer evenings growing up in the country. Sweet but earthy.

I took it home and to be honest totally forgot about it until I came across it last week while moving  some furniture. I decided to burn it and I wish I could attach a scratch and sniff patch on this post because you wouldn’t believe how beautiful it is 😀


Yankee Candle has always been my go-to when it comes to great fragrance, but finding another, dare I say even better, candle brand was something I never expected!

If you’re interested in giving them a try you can take a look at the Bog Standard Website where you can also find more of the many other products they have. I really want to try the handwashes next I think 😀


I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and like always if you have any questions or suggestions you can leave them in the comments below 🙂


All The Best
