our scented room


Our Scented Room is a boutique African inspired online store that celebrates local creatives. Whether you’re shopping for a gift or for yourself, Our Scented Room offers a sense of opulence. Themed around a sensory experience, having sourced luxurious home fragrances, décor accessories and other scented must-have items to elevate your home.  Supporting wonderful local artisans to bring you the perfect online shopping experience with unique, limited addition rare finds.


I have followed Our Scented Room for quite a while now, watching them grow into the beautiful online store that is to be launched in April 2021.

What I love most about this brand is their attention to detail. Amanda and her team pay special attention to the things that I believe matter when sharing what they love online. Not only do they curate and sell a range that they love and believe in, but they take the time to display it in the most beautiful way.

It makes shopping their store not just a visual experience but almost a physical one. Every effort is made for you to understand exactly what you are buying without the need for you to touch it or smell it. Intangible as the items on your screen may be, you can almost feel the silk, smell the soap and feel the hand cream as it moisturises your finger tips.

Our Scented Room is the ultimate in luxury gifting and self care. Whether your loved one lives in another South African city, or not, you have come to the right place to purchase the most desirable gift.

Ahhh this bag! Fulfilling all the achromatic, boho-style dreams I never knew I had. I wouldn't usually describe my aesthetic as free-spirited, but I definitely love to incorporate earthy elements and natural fibres where possible.

This bag, to me, is a good balance of that.


It is also super functional. Use as a handbag, a shopper, a beach bag or an overnight bag for a sleepover at your besties house. (Yes, I still do sleepovers at my friend's homes - don't you?)




I can never get enough of baskets such as these for around my home and I am always finding new purposes for them. Or rather, they keep being used for new purposes, by accident!

I've found that they make snuggly beds for my kitties when a blanket is placed at the bottom, they store unsightly shoes or brollies at the front door, they hold loo paper, they make an excellent home for wood ready to be placed on the fire and it is a great alternative to a typical laundry basket.

The handles on this Bolga Basket give it added functionality for whenever you need to move any of these items around your home.
