A lingering scent can be that essential finishing touch to a simple home change or a gorgeous interior design project. My dad\’s friend Penny is an interior designer, and she informed me that whenever she completes an interior design project for a client she always lights a few of her signature scented candles before she leaves (if they are home of course). She also informed me that creating a mood is not just about the colors on your wall, but attention to small details such as candles. A signature scent is a candle that is not used seasonally in your home, but year round. – so how do you get that scent?
Considering this when choosing a home scent. The scent should compliment your décor. A fresh pine scent does not make sense in a beach house, however a Frasier Fur scent does make sense in an up north cabin. A modern space is clean so accentuate with clean fragrance. If your house has earth tones go for a more earthy scent such as vanilla or a fruit and spice mixture.
Universally pleasing smell. Fresh citrus and fruity candles are a great option that everyone can enjoy.
Other options to candles. Buy reed diffusers! Reeds will scent up to a three foot radius which means you can have a different fragrance in each room of your home.
One last thing I just discovered Linnea\’s Lights Hand Poured Natural Soy Candles. The candles burn so clean, and they come in very unique scents. One of these candles would definitely make a great signature scent if you are in need of one.
So tell me what is your signature scent?
