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.

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.
