Fragrance experts suggest not to use a single scent in all parts of your home, as this will give an impression that you are trying to cover up something. Here we show you how you can use different scents in different areas of your home.
Do you want your home to smell like autumn even in the middle of summer or winter? Using apple cinnamon’s sweet fragrance would bring to mind home-baked delights of autumn. With its ability to make you feel warm and relaxed, you won’t be bothered too much by how cold or hot the weather outside is.
Want to keep your kitchen smelling fresh despite the number of recipes you’ve already cooked? Use fragrances such as Citrus Zing and Pomegranate Citrus Cassis. Citrus has such an amazing ability to absorb odour from fish, smoke and cooking that it’s recommended to place a cut orange inside the refrigerator. Any citrus fragrance will do, but the scents mentioned above offers a bit of extra zing. They keep the kitchen smelling fresh and energetic in warm and humid summer days. But they can be an all-year-round treatment too.
In a place where you want to relax and put on soft, background music, use a fresh flower scent. In the living room, that helps create that fresh and relaxing environment. This is also one way to make the room inviting every time you or someone steps inside. Avoid bombarding your guests with a strong, overpowering scent that they would make them want to step back outside.
Look for a fragrance that mixes the clear sharpness of lavender and the relaxing scent of eucalyptus.
The bedroom is where sleep and romance happens, so you want to use a scent that promotes relaxation, warmth and sleep. There are many fragrances to choose from, and what you use would depend on what you hope to achieve.
Want to bring out a sense of loving and romance? Lavender provides the perfect fragrance. It has a unique calming effect that subtly tickles your sense, perfect for the bedroom.
Want something that works like a sleeping pill, but with a gradual effect? Use jasmine that will leave your senses completely relaxed. It provides a scent-sational substitute for counting sheep.
Vanilla is said to curb hunger when smelled after a hearty meal. So, if you make a habit of crawling someplace else after dining in the kitchen, use a vanilla scent in that room. Doing so will make that candy bar or chocolate less appetizing. Just don’t make the mistake of smelling it when you’re hungry, as this can boost your craving. If it aids in weight loss when sensed after meals, it can have the opposite effect before meals.
Enjoy an ambient, sweet vanilla scent with a fragrance that combines the delectable scent of praline and vanilla.
