The scent in the house creates a cozy atmosphere and has a positive effect on mood and well-being. It depends not only on cleaning but the smell of perfume, aroma sticks or candles as well.
Homeowners don't even think about how important fragrance is. Homes and Gardens learned from experts how to choose a signature scent for the home.
You don't need to use different scented candles in each room because the smells mix and can create a pungent aroma or even a stench.
75% of our memories can be triggered by smells alone, so creating a good scent in your home will not only help to calm you down but also create pleasant memories for guests who had a good time at your place.
There are a few tips to follow to choose the right scent.
Think about the atmosphere you want to create
The atmosphere in the house depends not only on beautiful design and soft furnishings but also on the smell of the rooms. Choose a scent that complements your interior and tells your preferences.
If you have a light design of pastel colors, you can choose notes of the smell of autumn and winter. It can be spice smells reminiscent of Christmas, for example.
If you want to create a light space, a floral or fruity candle will work best.
Candles aren't the only option to fill your home with a pleasant scent. Scented air fresheners can also be a great option if you have pets or small children, as they can snag the candle and this will lead to unwanted consequences.
Choose the right places in the house
You need to find a balance between all the rooms so that the smell will gradually spread throughout the house. Too many candles can spoil the atmosphere.
Choose the places where you will get the most out of the scent like the bathroom, hallway, living room or bedroom.
There are many ways to create a signature scent, whether you go to a professional or try it yourself at home, experimenting with essential oil blends. Consider what scents give you pleasure and bring back good memories carefully and experiment to create the perfect scent for yourself.
