It may have escaped your notice, but Primark's been having a wellness event – and home scents have been featuring heavily (not surprising: too cold/wet/windy to open windows; spring cleaning not quite upon us yet). The biggest surprise is how nice the packaging is on the home scents – these (top) are our favourites. And because they're not Primark-branded, we're pretty sure you could get away with displaying them at home/gifting them for birthdays/Mother's Day without anyone ever knowing. And they cost from just £1. Rude not to get some, really.

Find all our favourite home scents in our dedicated buyer's guide.

Hang it on the back of the loo door, put it in your wardrobe, in the shoe cupboard, in the car... you get the drift.
