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!

I hope you had a great Bank Holiday weekend. The weather certainly could have been better!
I’m desperate for some sun and am counting down the days until I go to Las Vegas. Just under a week to go now!

Last week I had my showcase at Publicis in Central London. They invited me down to use there space to sell and promote my products to there staff. I was only there over the lunchtime period so considering I was only there for a mere 2 hours it went very well! I had alot of very good feedback, the men in particular seemed impressed with my products – it’s usually very hard to impress men with fragrant products but they asked alot of questions and complimented my packaging so I was quite flattered. Pomp & Circumstance, my Limited Edition Bulgarian Rose & Jasmine Soy Candle stole the show. It has such a depth and character to it, and it is almost impossible to pick out the individual notes as it has such complexity. Pomp & Circumstance is a very luxurious fragrance. It’s a shame I can’t upgrade this candle to part of my standard range, but my supplier of Bulgarian Rose doesn’t always have it so it has to remain Limited Edition for now. Nonetheless, Cloud Nine remained a firm favourite, I love playing the game with my clients of “guess the fragrance”, and there was one guy in particular who was brilliant at it! He could recognise some of the components, which is quite hard to do as I usually have quite a few notes and accords in my fragrances. Creme’ De La Creme’, Ambrosial Peach and Indian Mistress of the Night still seem to be a winner with both sexes. I was told that The Caspian Sea was very true to the brief: A subtle, fresh, light, aquatic scent. Lavender, With Love, I knew would be a favourite as it’s a white candle and women love Lavender!
Anniversary, the candle and the reed diffuser was hands down the most sought after fragrance of all. I anticipated that it might be so that was handy.

Publicis do regular marketing events like this at there offices for small creative businesses like mine, so hopefully I’ll get invited back in the future. I am planning to introduce a few new products to my range like body cream’s and souffle’s, salt and sugar scrubs, perfumes, bath oils and I may have an attempt at making Cold Process Soap. It’s a little more technical then M&P soap which I already make, and it takes longer to cure. I’m not so certain I have the patience to wait but we’ll see! 🙂
