What to buy the fussy women in your life this Christmas

Christmas is exciting for many reasons – it marks the start of (what we hope will be) a long, hot summer, gives us an excuse to eat as many Christmas mince pies our as bellies can handle, and brings together families for a day filled with festivities and love.

But for some, the C-word is synonymous with S-T-R-E-S-S (and yes, we’re talking about Christmas, minds out of the gutter).

Between traipsing through the mall with the masses while festive mania hits fever pitch, or trawling through hundreds of online shopping sites, discovering the perfect gift for the lovely ladies in your life is taxing to say the least.

We at Remix are the first to admit we are a fussy bunch. Don’t come near us with your cheap champagne or lacklustre Christmas crackers this festive season, we’re not having a bar.

Appease your anxiety and discover the ideal pressie for the discerning women in your life at ECOYA. The luxurious home fragrance brand has been dominating the market with their range of heavenly scents and bespoke packaging since inception.

New for 2017, ECOYA have introduced four limited-edition scents inspired by summers spent around Australasia, alongside three divine Christmas 2017 scents – with the notable comeback of the ever-popular Fresh Pine olfaction.

Here, we tapped the four fussiest women we knew (aka the girls of Remix) for the ECOYA scents featuring firmly on their Christmas wish-list. Santa, can you hear me…?

ASH’S PICK: ECOYA Dark Chocolate, Meringue & Raspberry Madison Jar

Ash says: “Anyone who knows me well will know I am OBSESSED with chocolate. This divine scent is an indulgent blend of almond, chocolate, sweet Indonesian vanilla, red raspberry and caramel. It smells good enough to eat! Plus, it’s limited-edition too so I’d hate to miss out!”

ANDY’S PICK: ECOYA Mini Madison Gift Set

Andy says: “I’m SO in love with this gorgeous packaging! And the minis are so easy to distribute throughout the house – I love to have a scent in each room so these minis tick the box. I’m going to be giving this little set to my gorgeous mum who puts one in the house, one in the camper van and one in the beach house – a little bit of luxury for the whole summer! I love that it includes three of ECOYA’s most iconic fragrances – French Pear, Lotus Flower and Sweet Pea & Jasmine.”

ROSIE’S PICK: ECOYA Fresh Pine Madison Jar

Rosie says: “I am a massive Christmas fan, so I burn my ECOYA Fresh Pine candle every night in December and listen to Mariah Carey’s Christmas on repeat! This scent fuses fresh pine needles with a rich hit of freshly sawn forest wood, punctuated only by touches of citrus and rosewood”

KERRIE (@kerriepatricia)


KERRIE’S PICK: ECOYA Sun-Kissed Lime & Sea Salt Mini Diffuser

Kerrie says: “This super summery scent is giving me all of the summer feels – while getting me inspired for my own trip to Bali next year! I love the blend of sparkling citrus and sage, fused with a floral heart and moss, patchouli and sandalwood base. One whiff and I’m instantly transported to a balmy Balinese evening by the beach!”
