There are lots of thing I am not fussy about. I am not a wheat free, dairy free, ear plug wearing, own pillow taking to hotels, I won't die if the milk is semi- skimmed or we don't walk the absolutely quickest route to somewhere.
I do fuss about laundry though. I follow the instructions exactly and have probably spent far more money on dry cleaning and time on hand washing than is strictly necessary.
I find hand washing quite therapeutic though. There's something about squeezing every last bit of water out of a garment that is satisfying.
I have recently upgraded my hand wash to Stella laundry delicate from Tocca. Tocca make beautiful fragrances and have somehow managed to transfer the scents perfectly to their laundry range which I can't imagine was easy for the perfumer in question.
Stella is a blood orange scent which is rare in itself; the candle is something of a cult product and I remember there being a great deal of excitement when the perfume of this, and the other popular candles fragrances, came out.
For me though it's being able to have my delicates smell of blood oranges, one of the best gifts in natures basket, that really makes my day. In the morning it gives my day a small lift being able to smell my landry as I put my clothes on.
Now when are Guerlain going to start making washing powder?
