  • Hallway
    2 / 15 Hallway

    The hallway is the place at home where first impressions are made. Woody-based notes such as cedarwood, oud, patchouli or even leather are great for creating a subtle yet welcoming entrance. Such earthy and warm smelling scents will also help to soothe irritation and relax frazzled minds after a long work day – it’s the perfect way to welcome you back home!

  • Living room
    4 / 15 Living room

    The living room is one of the areas where you would spend most of your time in at home. Sweet-and-floral-based notes will help create a refreshing and comfortable
    atmosphere for you to relax in.

    For larger living rooms, try using a diffuser with stronger notes to allow the scent to gently permeate the entire room. Kick back on your couch and enjoy!

  • Dining area
    6 / 15 Dining area

    The dining area is the room where most people gather with family and friends to catch up over delicious meals. Stay away from overpowering fragrances to prevent the scent from interfering with tantalising food aromas.

    Citrus-based notes such as bergamot, lemon and orange are perfect for the dining area. A light spritz of room spray
    before and after meals will also ensure that the smell of food doesn’t linger.

    The kitchen is a tricky place to perfume at home. Citrus scents are great in the kitchen as they cut through the savoury smells while keeping the area calm and refreshing. Be adventurous and try scenting your kitchen with candles, room sprays or even a fragrance diffuser!

    Floral based notes are best for creating a relaxing environment in bedrooms. This helps you to feel utterly at home while relieving stress and anxiety. Homeowners who prefer woody fragrances can look out for notes such as sandalwood and cypress to keep the bedroom smelling fresh and clean.

    Keep your bathroom smelling fresh with fruity-based notes such as apricot, fig and peach. Try to always keep a room spray on hand in the bathroom for a quick spritz to refresh the space after each usage. If you are looking to indulge in a bubble bath, light up a scented candle for romantic, luxurious spa vibes.

    Spicy-based fragrances will help you focus without getting distracted if you are working from home.
