EASY HOME FRAGRANCE GUIDE
There is no place like home. And there is nothing quite as inviting as a home that not only looks but smells incredible too. The home fragrance you choose could be anything from the fresh and invigorating scents of lemon verbena or other citrus notes to the more warming smells of vanilla, oudh or even the smell of fresh baking.
While you are spending more time at home, take this opportunity to think about what kind of scent you would like to create. Different rooms would naturally be more suited to different scents while your main entrance or living area is particulary important in creating the most welcoming and comforting mood.
Follow this simple Home Fragrance Guide for choosing the right scent.
For a calm, peaceful sleep space
lavender, chamomile or sandalwood
For a warming and inviting mood
cedarwood, vanilla or ouhd
For a clean, freshly laundered scent
For a relaxing environment
rosemary, geranium or peppermint
For a more romantic feel
ylang ylang, jasmine or rose
Just as you would change your look to fit the season so you should switch to a scent that best encapsulates the season.
Fresh and natural, green scents are best for spring. Think clean cotton or notes of lemongrass.
Light floral and citrus notes do best in summer, keeping your space fresh and bright.
As the weather cools bring in some deep, fruity fragrances and the more spicy aromas for warmth.
Sweet, spicy scents will make your home feel more cosy in winter. Heavy floral scents bring in a more snuggly feeling.
- Place your diffuser in the entryway and it will send a light diffusion of scent throughout your home.
- Keep the scent light for any room you spend a lot of time in.
- Choose light, floral notes for the bedroom.
- Fresh green or natural scents pair well in the kitchen.
- Clean, fresh fragrances are good for the bathroom.
- Woody or warm scents create a cosy mood for the living room.
