Candles or diffusers can actually change the way your home feels.

There is nothing quite like walking through your front door at the end of a long day, taking a deep breath, and smelling that familiar smell of your home. A mix of oils and candles make up your space’s particular aroma.

  2. Think of the fragrance as an extension of everything else you do to make your house feel like a home.
  3. Focus on introducing fragrances into the right places at the right times.
  4. Scent is personal and powerful” –  “Nothing evokes emotion like scent.” Create a serene vibe –
