A mesmerizing scent gets easily etched into our memories forever. Smell is our most powerful sense and it takes a surprisingly small amount of fragrance to set the character of your home which can range anywhere from clean and fresh to luxurious and sophisticated. The tiniest whiff of a scent has the ability to instantly conjure up cozy memories when exposed to it again which provides a great opportunity to reflect your home’s signature stamp using home fragrances.
How to make your house smell good
In addition to keeping your home clean, home fragrance products can be a powerful tool to your arsenal when it comes to keeping your home smelling nice and fresh.
More isn’t always better
To give your home that continuous alluring smell, it’s usually best to keep away from scents that are too strong. Subtle scents usually blend right in with your home to create the right atmosphere. Whether your goal is to encourage a sense of well-being with an uplifting aroma; to set the jovial tone that a fruity scent creates; or to create a sultry, sophisticated environment with a classy home scent; we’ve found that subtle works best whatever the objective is.
Keep touch-up home fragrance options handy
Home fragrance sprays and automatic home fragrance systems are handy options to keep around for when your home needs a quick little touch up.
Use Odor-neutralizers and moisture absorbers in problem areas
Odor neutralizers contain enzymes that effectively remove bad odors. Moisture absorbers are designed to remove excess moisture that leads to musty, unpleasant odors. They are an under-used secret to keeping a home smelling fresh and work particularly well in the bathroom and kitchen areas.
Top picks for best home fragrances
Choose your home fragrance based on the atmosphere that you wish to create for your home. For example, if your aim is a fresh, clean home scent then home fragrances that contain hints of citrus, lavender, or linen tend to work well. For a luxurious classy home scent, fragrances containing hints of cedar, sandalwood, musk, or sage effectively add character.
Scented candles are must-haves when welcoming anyone to your home as they double as home décor. Candles are instantly uplifting. They provide a soothing glow that liven up any room while filling up your home with a warm soft scent.
Wax melts and warmers help provide a more even consistent scent and often contain more fragrance added to them than traditional candles. If you use an electric burner, they are flame-free and may be a healthier option for your overall environment as they don’t generate soot and if you use a liner you can avoid any messy clean-up! One of the most enticing benefits of using wax melts is that there are many warmer styles to fit any home decor.
Reed and Mist Diffusers
Fragrance diffusers are an elegant way to release beautiful fragrance throughout your home. Diffusers release scent using a lovely presentation that bypasses the safety hazards of burning candles. The end of the stick in the oil should be swapped every couple of weeks to help maximize the scent. The hands-down top benefit of home fragrance diffusers is their ultra-low maintenance.
Home Fragrance Systems
Home fragrance systems, such as the Pura Home Fragrance System, are the ultimate way to efficiently perfume your home. These are compact, high-powered, scent-diffusing systems that can consistently and efficiently fill your home with a long-lasting sultry aroma.
Plug-in Diffusers, Room Sprays, and Gel Beads
These are handy when looking for a quick touch up. Room Sprays are especially handy in high traffic areas like bathrooms and entranceways. Plug-ins and gel beads quickly fill up a room with continuous aroma.
Essential oils may be used with or without oil warmers to release aromatic oil molecules into the air. These home fragrance oils provide scents that can range from subtle to strong when heated.
Burning incense can help stimulate all of your senses. This almost ritualistic home fragrance option, can help deepen your sense of calm, connection, and balance. Burning incense provides an unmistakable and immediate aromatic transformation to any room.
Potpourri is a mixture of dried flowers, petals, herbs, and spices. It makes a welcome addition to any room because it’s pleasing to the eye while providing a subtle enticing scent.
Scented Sachets can be used creatively as a home fragrance option around the house. They can be discretely positioned in bathrooms and foyers.
Different scents evoke different feelings. First, determine what ambiance you would like to create in your home, and then choose the fragrance accordingly. If you want to make your home smell fresh and clean, consider using a fragrance that has notes of citrus, such as lemon or lavender. If you’re entertaining guests, woodsy notes will generally evoke sophistication. When you want to create a relaxing atmosphere, try lighting candles or incense. With so many home fragrance options, you can always fill your home with the right scent for any occasion, even if only to create a cozy home environment for yourself and your family.
