You probably don’t have the same colour walls in every room, or the same furniture in your bathroom and your living room, so it follows that using one fragrance throughout your home may not be the best approach. Much like with the décor in your home, taking the function of each room into account is helpful when picking home fragrance. You don’t use your kitchen and your bedroom for the same purpose, so the same fragrance won’t necessarily work in both.
Here are some of our tips and tricks for picking a beautiful fragrance to compliment every room, but keep in mind that there are no real rules when it comes to home fragrance!
Let’s start with the room where most of us begin our day. The bathroom is a place for cleaning and preparing yourself for the day ahead, so a fresh, revitalising scent like Pink Grapefruit or Sea Spray is a great accompaniment. Most of us won’t be spending a lot of time in the bathroom, so opt for the fuss-free but long lasting fragrance of Reed Diffusers.
Ideally you shouldn’t have a super strong fragrance in the kitchen as fragrance can often influence our sense of taste. You may only want to fragrance the room after cooking, in which case a Fragrance Lamp will help eliminate any unwanted food odours. On the other hand if you do want continuous fragrance in the background, a Reed Diffuser with only a few reeds to reduce the scent will add a little extra fragrance without becoming distracting.
The living room is often the main entertaining space in the home as well as a room in which plenty of your time is spent, pick a fragrance that matches your tastes and personality to tailor the space to you. To create ambience and mood it’s also a good idea to vary fragrances throughout the seasons, such as green florals for spring and spicy and warming scents in the winter.
Your bedroom is, most importantly, the place when you sleep, so steer clear of scents you find very invigorating. In the evening you can also use fragrance to enhance your sleep. Lavender aids relaxation and sleep so a few drops of Bedtime essential oil with lavender and sage in a Scent Hub can help you relax before bedtime.
