My idea of the ultimate luxury, would be an on-going supply of seasonal, home grown, scented flowers. Freshly cut, from our own garden to decorate the London flat. Especially with those fragrant English roses! The scent is subtle, but lingers on.
As things are, we don’t have a garden nearly big enough for such a luxurious lifestyle, though I do manage to grow enough flowers for a few weeks in the spring and summer.
It’s practically an annual celebration! ‘Ah the fragrant roses are blooming! Quick plonk some in a vase… The peonies are blooming… The lavender!..make some sachets’ (I use the end of summer lavender crop to store & keep my cashmere sweet smelling & moth free, (post here) easy to grow and bee friendly!)
