Miller Harris Flower Water in Fleurs D'Oranger
Fleurs D'Oranger is a warm honeyed orange flower water, distilled from Orange Flower Blossoms from the village of Pegomas near Grasse. It's more of a honey/perfumed orange blossom than the citrus note that people often expect because of the 'Orange' in the name, and is a warm, soothing scent. I use this to spritz linen before ironing it. I detest ironing and find it a total chore; anything that makes it marginally more pleasant is worthwhile to me. In hot weather it's also nice to spritz sheets with before getting into bed.
The flower waters can be used as facial spritzes/toners and as a very light body perfume, and I like the Fleurs D'Oranger for the hair too.
Miller Harris Flower Water also comes in Lavande (good for summer) and Rose Centifolia (I love this, but Mr London doesn't want our sheets to smell of rose). They are £17 for 250ml, but you do only need to spritz a few times to get a nice scent on bedlinen.
