Often, associated with a feminine scent, its clean and fresh aroma is infused in many fragrance products and loved by millions around the world.

Bringing back fond childhood memories of a busy kitchen and a warm home, vanilla is seen to be a very positive scent in our lives and has now been transformed into an everyday fragrance used in many different ways.

Nag Champa is considered a truly spiritual fragrance and can be found in many different forms all around the world. The most notorious form of Nag Champa are incense sticks and incense cones.

How to Choose Home Fragrance for Yourself or for a Gift

The great news is that home fragrance is much easier to buy than personal fragrance because you don’t have to contend with body chemistry changing the scent as it contacts the skin. This makes giving gifts of home fragrance highly desirable and more foolproof.

There are 6 popular scent families and almost all fragrances fit into one or more of these families. We’ve cross-referenced the fragrance families with popular colognes and recommended scents for each family:

Fragrance blending notes: I often get comments from customers that they usually don’t like vanilla, but in our combination with lavender, they love it. Frequently, I get the same type of comment about lavender, fennel, coconut and ylang ylang. This is no accident, and therefore one of my favorite compliments to receive. The sweetness of vanilla knocks the sharp edge off lavender and vice versa. I did the first round of scent blending based on the principles of aromachology, but took it the next step further working with a master perfumer until the scents exactly matched my vision—mood balancing scents with wide appeal.

Make your home irresistible to family and friends with scents

When we talk about “home fragrance,” we often think of kitchens, baths and living spaces that we like to keep smelling fresh. It’s important to remember that we spend the majority of our time in our workplaces (if we work outside the home) and in our bedrooms. Many of us spend time traveling for work or leisure and many spend hours commuting each week. So as we venture further afield, so must our “home” fragrance.

Fragrance adds a rich, luxurious dimension to life and is an important aspect of the spa lifestyle. Instead of just letting smells happen, it’s empowering to put a personal stamp on indoor environments by choosing fragrances that soothe the spirit, sharpen creativity or lend excitement to a time or place

In the typical home here you will find room sprays, toilet sprays and cheap fragrance dispensers. These do a really basic job of masking odours. However, they do not purify the air or ‘beautify’ it very well. In fact, many of them have a rather harsh or unpleasant smell of their own.

The more exclusive diffusers and fragrances available in the United States – clean the air in your home and, at the same time, impart a lovely fragrance to the room.

There is a range of fragrances available so you are able to choose the one which will create the precise ambience you want. Or you can choose to influence the mood you wish to be in.

We’ll start with the simplest form of home scenting – a perfumed candle.

These come in all shapes and sizes, the more refined ones in a glass container and with a very sophisticated fragrance.

Next is a simple diffuser that normally consists of a glass container filled with fragrance essence.

Rattan sticks help vaporise the scent into the air.  The top end diffusers of this type have an elegant bottle design which complements the décor of your entrance hall, living room, bathroom or toilet.  Their fragrances, too, are out of this world.

Next is a Smelly Jelly diffuser that normally consists of a glass container filled with fragrance essence beads

Next is the  popular electric room diffuser that normally consists of a decorative glass container that heats up your with fragrance essence by way of a halogen bulb

These are just a few ways that you can scent your home. Always keep in mind, the fragrance describes you.
