Keeping Your Home Fresh - the Modern Country way

When it comes to keeping my wardrobe fresh and lovely, I'm always a keenie. When I spotted these sachets, from a French company no less, I had to share my Mi-Septembre find with you immediatement. Mais oui!

Normally, I hesitate to recommend products from other countries because of shipping costs but these are so exquisite AND this month they have free shipping with a purchase over 40 Euros, so there's no excuse for anything but a perfectly-fragranced wardrobe.

"Nacre" Sachet

These pretty sachets are exclusively designed by Mi-Septembre. Isn't that a fabulously French-sounding name? It means 'My September', which, for me, carries particular resonance, because it's a time when our children start their school year, when our home settles down into a gentle routine, and I'm able to feel much more peaceful, to plan new projects, to delve my fingers into new schemes and, most importantly this year, to spend lots of one-to-one time with my gorgeous baby girl!

These sachets are unsurprisingly award-winning. I found the images on their website mesmerising. Aren't the details aspirational? 

The fragrance within the sachets is Mi-Septembre's own blend, incorporating a mix of star-anise, cinnamon and cloves. Moving inexorably into autumn, those are the aromas that I am love.

And coupled with the materials used, including natural linen and the dull lustre of mother-of-pearl buttons, ordering these becomes a Modern Country no-brainer.

I have to say, though, that these seem far too gorgeous for hiding away in my wardrobe. I want to display them all around the house!

Mm~m~m...can almost smell the scent from here, dear friend! During our military years, I took an Autumn House Tour of historical bulidings turned Officer's Quarters (modern day)! The most wonderful aroma hit me at the front door. When we got to the kitchen, the Officer's wife was simmering herbs and spices on the stove~top! I wished I'd been brave enough to ask what they were...but I was on my BEST behavior! Your sachets reminded me of that lovely cool Autumn day! Thanks, dear one!

Cloves and cinnamon- my absolute faves! I can't wait to burn my autumn scented candles. My favorite time of year.

Gorgeous! The linen look makes it seem just that much more sumptuous, doesn't it?

"Mi-Septembre" means "mid-September" - "my September" would be "mon Septembre". And the sachets are really cute!

Love them... must have them!

I can tell you know a little bit of Spanish too ('Mi' is 'my' in Spanish)...Francois/Espanol - who cares?... gorgeous sachets like these ones deserve a special post. Thanks for this one Sarah!

This reminds me that it's time to do my lavender "sachets"... I was thinking last night that I wouldn't have time to embroid them... I might steal the idea of mother-of-pearl buttons... if you don't mind, that is!

Those are really pretty, Sarah, and I'm sure they smell amazing!

Hi Sarah,
So happy to have found your blog via Glenda @ The Paper Mulberry.
I'm home alone this weekend and on a mission to de -clutter my wardrobes, so ordering these scented sachets could be the reward I deserve.
Off to find the website now.
Hope you have a lovely day,

Dear Sarah,
These are lovely!
However, "mi-septembre" means "mid-September.
It's a wonderful name and, for me, is evocative of the beginning of Autumn, first rain, ankle boots, leaves turning orange...
