Room scents : How to add a touch of fragrance to your home?

Just like a perfume you choose for yourself or someone you love, the fragrance you select for your home can set the scene for your most memorable moments. In selecting essential oils and scents you are most drawn to, you can easily add character and personality to your home by using a few of the techniques below, and make your space become a better reflection of you.

How to use home fragrances:

There are many different ways to give your home a special fragrance. Depending on the desired intensity, or the size of the space, the following methods can be used:

  • A diffuser will provide a permanent fragrance;
  • A spray gives a temporary boost when needed;
  • Candles add ambiance to your decoration as well as a soft emission of fragrance.

Scent is among the first details a guest notices when walking in, and is the sense most tied with memories. With the new year upon us, it’s a great and simple way to refresh your space.  

The best way to keep a consistent fragrance in even the most lively space is by using a diffuser to keep the baseline of scent, and complementing it with a matching spray when needed. Sometimes you can create your own special fragrance by combining a diffuser with a different scented spray – when the two mix it becomes an entirely new experience.
