You’ve decked out your home in the right luxury furniture, with complementary décor accessories and art. You’ve carefully considered the sense of sight, in the room’s visual aesthetic, and touch, in the textural finishes. But have you considered the final touch and sense – scent? Consider a home fragrance to greet you and your guests beautifully each time you step through the door.
When it comes to the perfect accessory for any room, you can’t go wrong with scented candles. They give off beautiful atmospheric light and ambience, add a delightful home fragrance, and make ideal gifts for any occasion – housewarmings, birthdays, anniversaries and more.
But candles can be fussy, and they need to be replaced regularly. This is where diffusers come in handy. A scented diffuser is a humidifier than diffuses essential oils into water vapour that wafts beautifully through the room.
Diffusers come in an array of shapes, sizes and materials, so you can choose the right one to blend into the décor scheme of your room. A reed diffuser, for example, is an unobtrusive décor item that easily merges into the surroundings, whatever the room.
The air fresheners you choose are, of course, a deeply personal preference as fragrance has such an emotional component to it. But certain scents do evoke certain atmospheres, so go according to what feel you want to encourage in a room. For a sense of romance, rose, peony, and jasmine work well. Wanting a home fragrance that’s more homely? Go with pumpkin spice, pine or bergamot. If an uplifting mood is what you’re after, citrus scents are the way to go. Woody scents, such as cedarwood or rosewood, will give off a sense of rustic comfort.
