I habitually have two reed diffusers on the go in the shoebox of negative equity, which is more than enough to keep its tiny, worth-sweet-shag-all walls smelling sweet (what? It’s the little things) and one of my favourite scents for home fragrancing is verbena.

So, on that trip I took to M&S Grafton street recently to check out the beauty offer, they asked me to pick a product to take home. I didn’t choose something cosmetic; listen – I am coming down with stuff from website and work but candles and reeds are things I rarely get sent, given or buy, so that was a genuine treat for me.

I picked one of the own brand Escape offerings, which come in a few scents, including Lemon Verbena, and which are beautifully packaged. At €15, these totally belie their pricepoint and don’t disappoint once they’re unwrapped either.

See, I don’t really want to spend €60 to scent my loo; but €15’s perfect, so to M&S I’ll be heading once my current Lemon Verbena runs out. Impressed? Yup, totally. You’ll be too.
