March 21st is National Fragrance Day. We all have our favourite scents and not surprisingly, fresh flowers feature in the top 10 best smells in a poll. More than three quarters of the people surveyed by decorating brand Harris say that have particular smells which make them feel nostalgic.

Roses make the top 20 of the best smells and are indeed one of my favourite memory-evoking garden flower scents.

Most people I speak to dislike January and want to disappear under the duvet until Spring. After December’s festivities and fun, friends and family say they struggle with the return to work, cold weather and dark mornings. January even has Blue Monday which this year was on the 16th.
