I mentioned last week that the home scent market is getting more decorative, as stores try to tap our ever-growing love for a scented candle and a nice smelling room. Shortly afterwards, I got invited to the opening of the Avery Perfume Gallery in Selfridges (on the 4th floor), where I discovered these irresistible ceramic scented animals and birds. They are made from matt Italian ceramic and are tipped with gold for added glamour.
I’ve actually seen the animals a number of times but stupidly only realised on this visit that you can scent them, through a hole in their base, with your favourite fragrance. The animals hold the perfume in the ceramic for a good while and sit quietly making their corner of the room smell fabulous. I’ve got one on my desk, which I spray in the morning and the perfume lasts all day.
The glorious Toucan is £158. How can you resist?
