Ghent Antiques just received a new shipment of Claire Burke Home Fragrance Sprays and Potpourri. After sampling the new line of scents, it made me think more about scent and how it can instantly transport you to a new surrounding! I wanted to research this a little more to find out what other folks do to make their places smell amazing. Here are some tips from Jessica Matlin from Cosmopolitan:
First and foremost, make sure your place doesn’t smell-you know in a bad way. Some of the biggest culprits are mildewy towels, cat litter and stinky cooking smells.
Jessica recommends you think beyond candles! Candles are not the only way to scent your space and they are not great if you have little kids or pets running around. She suggests supplementing with sprays, essential oil diffusers and sachets!
Less fruit, more forest-Scent is very much a matter of taste. The woodsier scents have a way of “dressing” up a space so much more than the sweeter stuff. That doesn’t mean you place needs to smell like a campsite-it just means that a bit of spice, smoke or toasty finish is a way of elevating your space and making it warm.
I really like this last tip of hers-create a house scent! You can stick with one scent but I love the idea of having a couple of scents at a time. Pair something masculine with something feminine.
My Carriere Freres candle has both rose and mint scents that is just divine. You can also try pairing a gardenia candle with vanilla for a more custom scent.
