The best fragrance’s for each room in your home

The best fragrance’s for each room in your home

Nowadays when we walk into a fancy department store like The White Company, Abercrombie & Fitch or Hollister to name just a few we immediately get hit with a waft of perfume. And this is no coincidence. Big brands have started employing Scent Marketers as they have realised that in order to make more sales they need to engage people’s most emotional senses: Their sense of smell.

75% of our emotions is linked to smell which is directly linked to pleasure, happiness and general well-being so having a brand fragrance has shown to dramatically increase sales because it enhances their sense of connection with the brand and their values – no wonder they are making it their business to get into the scent business.

When we are at home, this feeling of contentment and well-being is all the more important because we want our homes to smell good, be inviting and personal to us all at the same time.

Here are some suggestions on fragrances to introduce into your home environment to stimulate the senses and connect your environment with the way you’d like it to feel.

Living Room

This is typically the room we relax in, so it’s the room we’d like to be calm and comfortable in. Woody/Spicy fragrances like Sandalwood and Frankincense are good in this environment.

Our Candle F & M has woody hints of Sandalwood and refreshing Citrus along with spicy, anchoring notes of Frankincense & Myrrh. The perfect scent for an environment of relaxation.

Kitchen

We spent a lot of time in the kitchen, and now that more and more people are getting open planned kitchen/dining spaces so that they can entertain their friends it’s even more important that you get the smell of your kitchen right because nobody wants a kitchen that smells bad. The best scents to create a feeling of freshness and mask any unpleasant food odours are citrus or herbal fragrances like Lavender or Bergamot.

Our Candle fragrance Lavender, With Love has the best of both worlds, a fresh, slightly fruity floral note and a refreshing herbaceous scent of Lavender.

Bathroom

Bathrooms are where we get clean so we want them to smell clean. This is best achieved by having a brightening Citrus fragrance, such as Lemon or Grapefruit.

Our Citrus Aromatherapy Candle Grapefruit & Lime looks great in the bathroom and will fill the air with a fresh and uplifting Citrus notes.

Bedroom

Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It is your most personal space and therefore is the area in which your personality should really shine. It is also the most sensual space in the home so natural aphrodisiac scents like Rose and Jasmine should feature boldly. Or if you really want to seduce someone then a oriental fragrance will do that nicely.

Our Aromatherapy Candle Rose-Geranium & Jasmine is a great place to start but if you prefer a fragrance with more dark, sexy, mysterious notes then our luxurious Candle fragrance Indian Mistress of the Night, with spicy notes of Ginger and floral notes of Tuberose really set the mood.

Or, if you’re looking for a more Bespoke Fragrance to compliment your rooms and yourself, then why don’t you try our Bespoke Candle Service where you can get a signature scent created especially for yourself or give it as a extra special gift.

So, get yourself and your home smelling the way you want!

Hi!

This past week has been a little manic for me. I’ve been trying to drastically reduce my clothes and shoe collection as I’m going to be moving in with my boyfriend next weekend (yay) and I don’t wish to overflow his house with clothes and shoes that I’m not likely to wear again. So I decided that I’d give as many of my clothes as I can to charity, and the shoes that I never wore more then once, or in some cases not at all, to some of my friends. So far so good. I never realised how much skincare/candlemaking equipment I have though – it’s taking over the entire kitchen, lol.

I finally managed to sort out the settings on my camera and take some photographs of my new products, including:

Skin Silk Shea Body Butter
Skin Silk Cocoa Body Butter
Aromatherapy Candles: Rose-Geranium & Jasmine, Ginger & Sage, Grapefruit & Lime, Ylang Ylang & Vanilla and Lemongrass & Mandarin
White Scented Candles: Coconut & Musk, Appleblossom & Pear, Tuberose, Jasmine & Mediterranean Fig and Monoi de Tahiti & Lychee
Hair Elixir
First Love Eau de Parfum
Hair Perfume Mist Spray
Luxury Grapefruit Bath Salts
Rose-Geranium and Jasmine Body Souffle’
Rose Geranium and Jasmine Salt Scrub Souffle’
Lemongrass and Mandarin Body Souffle’
Lemongrass and Mandarin Salt Scrub Souffle’

I’ve also started putting together some gift baskets for the Christmas. I was approached by a film production company about trading at there private party a few weeks ago and also by the manager of the Christmas Markets in Islington regarding trading at there 3 day event at the beginning of December however I had to decline both as I just wouldn’t have had enough time to get everything ready, not to mention the actual creating the stock to sell at the events in the firstplace plus I’m down to trade at Brick Lane Market again at the beginning of December. The Islington event did sound great but I knew it would just be too much to organise in a mere 3 weeks, however I am planning on going there on one of the days to have a look around so that I can consider possibly trading with them next year.

If your a crafter, what Christmas markets are you trading at? have you traded there before? are you looking forward to it? have any been recommended to you? where is the market your trading at?

Here are a few of the new products that I have recently created. They are available to buy on Etsy and Notonthehighstreet now:

Now that Spring is finally upon us (I hope!), and since creating the new gorgeous fragrance for my new Body Souffle’s that include both Lemongrass and Mandarin Essential Oils, I have been dreaming up new fragrances with a strong emphasis on bright, warming, uplifting citrus notes.

Mandarin Profile

Of all of the citrus notes I like Mandarin the most, because to me it’s like an exotic and sophisticated relation of the Orange Family. It’s less piquant, and more mellow. It’s feminine and interesting, and though it doesn’t necessarily blend aswell with other florals as the Bergamot’s and Oranges of this world, it is in it’s own right very beautiful. I have used Organic Essential Oils in my Souffle’s and you really can smell the difference.

What are the Aromatherapy benefits of Mandarin EO?

Mandarin EO is a gentle oil and can be used, in the correct dilution to treat minor ills in children and the elderly. It is an antiseptic, digestive and anti-depressant and creates a feeling of calm and balance.
