Spending time at home has been the way of the world in recent years. While the freedom of less restrictions have come to fruition in 2022, there are still little things that have snuck their way into becoming routine over the past few years.
Creating a beautiful home has been at the forefront of everyones' mind and it seems that it is of high importance these days, more so than ever before. Prioritising the time we spend with those outside our household by hosting and entertaining in the home is something that is highly valued.
What comes with creating a beautiful home? The smells, the decor, the finishing touches to every room that makes you feel comfortable all contribute to the the experience of home living.
We all have those moments when we walk into a familiar home and the smell washes over us, bringing back memories. The signature scent of your home can be brought through in different ways:
- Drawn throughout
- Specific to certain areas
- Change with the seasons
There are a variety of ways to carry fragrance through your home. Whether it be a natural, fresh, sweet or citrus, your preference may change over the weeks, months or years but the method stays the same.
Leave it to do it's thing
Reed diffusers are a great way to set it and forget it. You'll be walking past it one day and wonder what that smell is and you'll find that you either love it, think it could be better or get sick and tired of it. The beauty of the reed diffuser is that it can be left unattended and spread throughout the house for the most effective coverage of fragrance.
Light a candle
It's the most obvious, but the most effective for immediate and etherial way of translating your fragrance into your home. It is good way to test a fragrance in a space if you're unsure of the vibe in a particular place or having trouble choosing one overall for your home. Making your own candles definitely helps when it comes to choosing your preferred fragrance. With a wide variety out there, it is important to take notice of the quality of your fragrance oil or essential oil. A 100% concentrated oil is our favourite for the best results and consistency across products.
An instant spritz of a room spray is the perfect way to layer your signature scent. Before guests arrive, after cooking dinner even when you open up the house after coming back from a holiday (Yay! We're allowed right now!). By keeping little spray bottles around the house for your convenience, your home is sure to be the best smelling one in the neighbourhood.
There is nothing more luxurious than having your own bespoke soap. Mix your own blend of soap and fragrance to create liquid soap, solid hand wash or body wash to round off your home's signature scent. Imagine how boujie that would be! You truly would be making a visit to your home an experience to remember.
A signature scent is all about layering. As seen with Carrie in And Just Like That, a home can be a reflection of your personality and a time in your life. Your home should tell a story, be layered and full of your history combined with new memories. With reed diffusers, candles, room sprays and soaps, you can layer your signature fragrance, adding further dimension and adding to the experience of luxe home living.
