The scent in your home creates a cozy atmosphere and has a positive effect on your mood and well-being. This depends not only on cleaning, the smell of perfume, or incense sticks or candles.

Many homemakers don't even realize how important the scent is for the residents of their homes. Homes and Gardens learned from experts how to choose a signature scent for your home.

You don't need to use different scented candles in each room because the scents can blend and create a strong aroma or even an unpleasant one.

Seventy-five percent of our memories can be triggered by smells alone, so creating a pleasant scent in your home will not only help you relax but also create pleasant memories for guests who have had a good time with you.

To choose the right scent, you need to follow a few tips.

Think about the atmosphere you want to create

The atmosphere in your home depends not only on the beautiful design and upholstered furniture but also on the scents in the rooms. Choose a scent that complements your interior and reflects your preferences.

If you have a light design in pastel colors, you can choose notes of autumn and winter scents. It can be the smell of spices that remind you of Christmas, for example.

If you want to create a light and airy space, then a floral or fruity candle will work best.

Consider air fresheners

Candles are not the only option to fill your home with a pleasant scent. Scented air fresheners can also be a great option, especially if you have pets or small children, as they can knock over candles, leading to undesirable consequences.

Choose the right spots in the house

You need to find a balance between all the rooms so that the scent spreads evenly throughout the house. Too many candles can ruin the atmosphere.

Choose the places where you will get the most benefit from the scent - the bathroom, hallway, living room, or bedroom.

There are various ways to create a signature scent, whether you go to a professional or try it yourself at home by experimenting with essential oil blends. Carefully consider which scents bring you pleasure and fond memories and experiment to create the perfect scent for you.

If you're trying to choose a home fragrance that everyone will like, then vanilla is the best choice. Scientists have found that vanilla still ranks first among most people's favorite scents.
