It's time to share my inspiration for the latest scent experiment. When I was younger my grandparents lived in Acresford House in Ashby-de-la-Zouch. It was a large house and at times so cold we had to sleep under electric blankets. The bedrooms were referred to by colour, the purple room, the brown room etc. The downstairs was usually nice and warm thanks to the pictured inglenook fireplace.
Behind the main hall was my grandad's workshop. It was adorned with wood and tools. At the centre was his lathe on which he would turn wood for chairs and tables. The air was filled with the scent of smoky wood shavings - a scent I hope you now recognise from your sample.
At the rear of the house was the pictured courtyard. My nan would tend to her flowers, now at the age of 102 with a bad hip - something she wishes she could still do. The scent of roses and geraniums filled the air. I also distinctly remember poppies growing next to the gate. You will now hopefully pick up the rose geranium at the heart of your sample.
These scents are so cemented in my memory that each time I spray Acresford Eau de Parfum, I will be transported back to those times
