You’ve decked out your home in the right 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?
When it comes to the perfect accessory for any room, you can’t go wrong with a scented candle. 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. Diffusers are humidifiers than diffuse essential oils into water vapour what 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.
The air freshener scent you choose is, 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 something 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. Or perhaps you want your home’s scent to match its furniture. In a room full of Scandinavian furniture, go for something like fresh pine.
