Spring is finally here which means flowers are in full bloom. And I’m so excited to find one of my favorites, peonies. These gorgeous flowers have really become super popular in recent years, but my mom has grown them in her garden for as long as I can remember. I guess they were rediscovered and became the “it” flower…
What I’m loving about this “rediscovery” is that there are now so many amazing products that contain the scent. I’m happy to share with you some of my Fabulous Finds products with peonies that we’re sure you’ll love!
We have written about Jo Malone so many times because we just love it! The Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede is one we have in every form possible from Bath Gel and Cologne to the Candle we are just in love with it. The scent is fresh and light and never overpowering. But when we want to get really fancy, we layer the Peony & Blush Suede with Mimosa & Cardamom. Which bring us to the second item on our list…
I recently discovered Peony Vodka on Instagram and fell in love before a bottle even arrived. Who would have thought one of the products with peonies would be vodka! It’s made by Three Meadow Spirits in Hudson Valley, New York. The location, the story, and the bottle pulled me into wanting to know more about the vodka and, of course, in addition to my love of peonies.
I started following them daily on Instagram and all the animals on the farm warmed my heart. Then the bottle arrived. I had a long sniff and a shot that was shaken and served straight up. Then I realized this would make a beautiful cocktail. So, I started experimenting and found a favorite…a Bubbly Peony. Pick up your own bottle and give this a try. The recipe will make you a pair of cocktails.
Bubbly Peony Cocktail
- In a muddling glass, muddle about 12 blueberries.
- Place blueberries, ice, and 2 ounces of Peony Vodka in a shaker glass.
- Strain one ounce of the shaken blueberries and Peony Vodka into each flute.
- Top off each flute with your choice of bubbly like Champagne or Prosecco.
- Garnish with a blueberry and enjoy.
I’ve bought Klorane products for many years. Most of all, I love the quality, that they use plant-based ingredients sustainably grown by their own farmers, and that the company is eco-friendly. I started with their dry shampoo which was the only one I could find at the time that didn’t leave a white residue. While I’ve tried others, I tend to gravitate back to Klorane’s.
So, I was so excited to find Klorane Shampoo with Peony. It’s specially formulated for sensitive skin and scalps. It’s very calming, ultra gentle, and made with detangling ingredients. And, of course, smells great. They also make a conditioner and scalp serum that are on my “to buy” list.

Being as busy as I am, I need hardworking, multitasking products. That’s why I’m a huge fan of Mrs. Meyer’s. A few drops of Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap can clean tile floors, degrease grill grates, and remove grime from patio furniture. Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap is tough enough for gardeners or little hands that have been playing in the dirt. And, of course, the matching lotion is a necessity for skin that’s dried out from cleaning or swimming in the pool.
On top of being effective, it’s important to me to use products I can feel proud to display. Grove Collaborative’s dish brush is beautifully effective for tackling dishes on taco night, but also makes a lovely sink side display. Even if guests stop by unexpectedly, I don’t feel like I have to hide my cleaning products under the sink!

And last but not least, it’s not just products with peonies we love, it’s the flowers themselves. When spring comes you will always find peonies in my home and in every room we use! I put nothing else with them, no greens or filler! I love the beautiful blooms all on their own.
Most importantly, be sure to always buy your peonies when they have not yet started to bloom. Trim the bottom, place in a fabulous vase, and wait. The process of the peony opening over the next few days is just magical and then the scent comes. Enjoy!
