Let me share with you my most recent green finds today!
Home Scent & Deco Gifts
For Women & Men
What’s that? Is there Christmas in the air?Too bad that Baldini room fragrances don’t come with the fruity arrangements from their promotional photography, eh? 😉 However, they do their job perefectly, and that is: make your home smell great. Different aromas, 100% essential oils, by essential oil specialist Taoasis.
€19.80, 100 ml bottle with 5 bamboo sticks, via Taoasis online shop
Ornaments worth collecting make great presents for anyone, except perhaps Messrs Grinch and Scrooge. I fell in love with the 2016 Swarovski collection with designs ranging from cutesy and playful to elegant and sophisticated.
Santa’s stocking (€49), golden star (€59), candy cane (€49), Christmas Ball Ornament Annual Edition 2016 (€79), Christmas wreath (€49).

People who love symbolic designs – flower of life, om, gingko leaf and so on – will enjoy the sleek essential oil diffusers by Grüne Erde.
Diffusers (€9.90), essential oils €9.90–32.40, in Grüne Erde shops and onlineAlso in Grüne Erde shops: a variety of tree ornaments handmade of felt, fabric filled with lavender (!), intricately painted glass in red and white, and wooden beads! So much love!

This hand-made original, 60 cm Ø with 25 rays is available via Manufactum, €29; lighting sold separately
Scented candles without toxins, paraffin-free? Oh yes, please!
The Ponyhütchen candles in their cute, heavy textured jards are hand-made in Switzerland, and this particular, sweet and warming lime blossom scent is exclusive to the Berlin boutique. There are several fragrances avaialble from powdery and sweet to dramatic and “christmassy”.
Brooke & Shoals candles are hand-made in Ireland from the best raw ingredients and perfumes on par with the leading luxury brands, the ribbon-tied box is very elegant and the matt heavy jar is suitable for the most sophisticated interiors. “Green Fig & Vetiver” is a noble, elegant fragrance that beautifully combines figs’ sweetness and vetiver’s earthy notes: delicious!
