As soon as you walk into the May Fair hotel, you’re hit by the most wonderful smell. The practise of using fragrances in the home is as old as time, dating back to over 1000 years ago when deliciously woody spices, herbs and flowers were bought across Europe from the Middle East and beyond.
Smell can evoke memories, create feelings and conjure up emotions – but what is the May Fair signature fragrance? Well, the secret is freshly cut grass beautifully mingled with lemon grass incense sticks.
If you want to recreate this at home try popping down to our Mayfair neighbour Miller Harris – a bespoke perfumer.
Spend the day with the experts in their scent library and design your own bespoke candles to light up your home.
