What I like this week!

Ecoya Laundry Range


Thanks La Nina. With our run of wet, humid weather, I have a house with washing hanging everywhere, trying to dry those pesky items that say “Do Not Tumble Dry”, and a Dryer in overtime. The house had a distinct laundry detergent aroma after weeks of wet weather.


Thankfully, I’ve recently discovered the luxe Ecoya Laundry Collection, an extension of the Ecoya Home Fragrance range, which offers a luxurious fine fragrance experience when doing laundry. Designed to layer and be used together, the Laundry Collection starts with the luxurious Fragranced Laundry Liquid, designed to gently wash and clean your clothes and linens whilst offering a beautifully subtle scent to your laundry. Next, the Fragranced Dryer balls, subtly fragrance your linens while they dry, leaving clothes softly scented. Made from 100% New Zealand wool, the balls work by bouncing about the dryer, preventing clothes bunching, creating airflow and absorbing moisture, reducing drying time. The Fragranced Dryer Balls come with a 50ml Fragrance Dropper and can be used up to 1,000 times. Finally in the Laundry Collection, is the delicate Fragranced Linen Spray, designed to refresh between washes – spray a fine mist before ironing, spritz on your bed, fabrics or towels – the choice is yours (we recommend a patch test before spraying any fabric). The Laundry Collection is available in Wild Sage & Citrus (with notes of citrus, fig, sage, coconut, amber and sandalwood), or Lavender & Chamomile (with notes of lavender, jasmine, chamomile, bergamot, grapefruit, cedarwood and patchouli – they really are both like Fine Fragrances).  Ecoya Laundry Liquid 1L RRP $29.95, Ecoya Linen Spray 300ml RRP $19.95, Ecoya Dryer Ball Set of 3 Balls and Fragrance Dropper 50ml RRP $34.95 and Ecoya Fragrance Dropper 50ml RRP $12.95.


My thoughts – the Laundry Liquid gets my clothes thoroughly clean and leaves a soft, subtle fragrance. The Dryer Balls and Fragrance Dropper have my tumble-dried clothes delicately scented not smelling of tumble dryer at all, and the Linen Spray has been brilliant at refreshing bed linen and towels. I’m a huge fan – my home no longer smells of detergent and wet clothes, it has a fine fragrance aroma instead.
