When I first smelt L'Occitane's citrus verbena shower gel a few years ago I was immediately reminded of childhood - I can't remember where I know the scent from but it's somewhere in my unconscious memory. I clearly remember the shape of the leaves from the verbena plant and rubbing them together to get the smell on my fingers. This is one plant that I must have on the fire-escape garden.

|How lovely would it be to have this stash in the bathroom cupboard|
|Can you even imagine how good mandarin rind, rosemary leaf and cedarwood atlas smells?|
My craving for room sprays, candles, hand creams and shower gels is working out much cheaper than my old shoe addiction; which is just as well given how much work we have to do in the house! When it comes to shower gels in this house there are family ones and there are Mummy's ones - the one's no one is allowed to use. Selfish I know but the boys just need to not smell horrible, they don't need to smell of fig, sandalwood or rosemary!
My 'room' should be ready for me to move furniture into this weekend - thank goodness, so as well as making a giant inspiration board - I am going to celebrate with a new room spray!
