Many underestimate the importance of your home fragrance. We can fill our homes with generic air fresheners and hope that it’ll do, however, more often than not, it won’t. A fragrance in your home gives the house character and a personality. Also, by catering each room of your house to their own distinctive aroma, you’ll give yourself a sophisticated and comforting welcome home when you step through the door.

The kitchen

Kitchen smells can often be fluid with what you have cooking on the hob. It’s best not to leave stagnant flavours left from last night’s dinner. This being said, you do want to fill your kitchen with delicious food aromas. Savoury scents such as thyme or basil pair particularly well with fresh flavours such as apple or pear. The kitchen is also the perfect room to create your own scent. Use citrus based scents and fine tune a custom aroma in your kitchen. To do this, simmer water in a small saucepan and add bright citrus flavours combined with herbs. The most important tip for your kitchen is to avoid all floral scents as this will mingle poorly with cooking.

The living room

The living room is the heart of any home. Here is where your family spend most of their time, and guests are most welcome. The perfect fragrance is therefore incredibly important. The general aroma of your living room should depend on what you use it for. Its fragrance is a reflection of your home. For general use, you want a relaxed and welcoming smell. Soft floral fragrances provide the best constant use in your living room. Try rose or peony aromas for a gentle touch.

The office

When working at home, it is easy to become distracted. Whether it’s time to sort out your taxes or some extra hours from work, you need to be focused. Therefore, allow your office scent to energise you, not distract you. Rosemary is one of the best pick-me-up perfumes which is ideal in the office. Rosemary has been known to improve memory retention, alongside distinctive stimulating properties. These properties fight physical exhaustion, headaches and mental fatigue. Rosemary essence will allow your brain to get going, and improve your productivity.

The bathroom

When refreshing the smells of your bathroom, freshness is an absolute necessity. Clean scents are always a guaranteed bet for the perfect bathroom smell. Any candles or diffusers reminiscent of fresh linen is a great anchor for the bathroom. Alternatives also include fresh smells such as lemon, lime or mint. The bathroom is also a great location for rejuvenating smells to get your feeling joyful in the morning. By using bright refreshing smells such as eucalyptus makes your wake up routine happier and easier to wake up.

The bedroom

There are many different options for your bedroom in terms of its fragrance. Relaxation is one of the most important ambiences to endorse in your bedroom.  There are lots of relaxing smells which will be your aromatic lullaby. Lavender is one of the most commonly known scents for relaxation. Lavender physically slows down your body by reducing your heart rate, blood pressure and relaxing your muscles. The ideal fragrant embrace for you to switch off and fall asleep happily.
