How to Choose a Home Fragrance for your rooms

Choosing a Fragrance for your house is a very personal decision and while there are suggested rules for each room in the end it is a personal choice that determines what should be chosen. Let us take you through some broadly defined generic rules for each of the rooms
Living Rooms: Usually it is the largest room in the house and also the center point of a house and usually a strong fragrance is suggested for this room.

  • What Should be used: Bold and Strong Floral notes are best suited for this room along with woody or amber or smoky based fragrances. For those of you who like sweets, even sweet fragrances should be best used in this room.
  • What should not be used: Since these rooms are usually large subtle fragrances or herbal notes should be avoided as they would get lost and you would not be able to smell it

Bedrooms: Only criteria for this room should be to not choose something which creates problems when you are sleeping

  • What Should be used: Subtle Scents or Herbal scents are the ones that are usually suggested for these room chamomile and other tea-based scents like lavender are also suggested

Kitchens: For this room choose something that mixes well with the smells of all the foods being cooked

  • What Should be used: Any Fruit-based scent mints, passion fruit, basil, or other natural notes like tomato goes well here

Bathrooms: This is the room where mostly you need to mask odors and it is an open choice room where anything which smells nice goes

  • What Should be used: While anything can be used here particularly fruity and tangy flavors like berries are our picks for this room

Hallways: This is where the first impression is made on your guests and our suggestion is to choose strong and bold scents here.

Home Office: Our Pick for a home office scent is Citrus which will help you  concentrate which should make you feel better while you attend your meetings

Reed Diffuser vs Candle vs Room Spray

Candles need to be supervised and you need to be careful when they are lit but they are the best to enjoy a luxurious experience

Avoid Cheap Candles and go for high-quality ones to really enjoy the fragrance.

Reed Diffuser is great as something you need to maintain less but you will not have variety and you will have to get used to the same smell for a long period of time so use it if you really like a particular fragrance

Which Scents and Notes do you Like or Dislike

Instead of choosing a trending scent or note chose something that you personally like that is always the best option
