Not only does Branche d’Olive’s Peony Room Diffuser, £26, look gorgeous and smells divine, its ‘goodness’ has a further reach beyond its aesthetic appeal.
This October, Branche d’Olive, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, will be donating a proportion of its profits from the sale of each Peony Room Diffuser, to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Following on from last year’s successful #SprayPink campaign, which raised over £10,000, the brand will continue its support for the Charity by donating £2 from the sale of each Peony Room Diffuser made on the company website between the 1 to the 31 October.
Bursting with pink blooms, the diffuser is an apt way to raise funds. It has a subtle fragrance, from notes of peony, rose and jasmine combined with sandalwood and warm amber, and is a feel-good addition to any room.
Its holistic credentials derive from the hero notes of Peony, which is renowned for its medicinal properties as well as being representative of peace, good fortune and happiness. Furthermore, the elegant bottle is complete with a hand tied pink ribbon which can be removed and worn as a show of support for ‘wear it pink month’.
The cause is one close to the heart of the brand’s co-founder, Jane Comyn, who sadly lost her sister, Jo Drinkwater, of breast cancer at The Royal Marsden in 1995. Jane talks of her sister as “a very intelligent, hugely funny young woman. She was a brilliant editor at Tatler, particularly good at spotting and ‘bringing on’ new talent. One such was AA Gill, they adored each other and he writes movingly of her in his book: Pour Me: A Life.
