The experts say that if you want to sell your property smartish, you should ensure it smells divine from top to bottom. However we don’t see any reason why your home shouldn’t smell fabulous regardless, so here’s our room by room guide to which candle fragrances will keep you, your family and your guests breathing deeply!
This room is one of the most aromatic in the house but not always the best smelling – Sunday morning coffee and croissants smell amazing but Friday nights fish supper not so much. So, choose a zesty citrus fragrance such as lemon or lime to mask and eliminate cooking odours and leave the kitchen smelling fresh again.
This is usually a modest sized room so choose a mild scent, so it’s not overpowering. A fabulous every day fragrance with a twist for the bathroom is marine inspired scent – choose a scent with hints of sea salt and light citruses reminiscent of the coastal breezes to give a fresh, clean smell to the room.
When it comes to having some me time by soak in the tub, turn your bathroom into a your very own spa with tropical and exotic scents such as frangipani, jasmine and rosewood to give an indulgent feeling while helping you to de-stress.
This room is for relaxing to ensure you get that perfect night’s sleep. It therefore comes as no surprise that the best scent for this room is the traditional, “stood the test of time” lavender! For maximum relaxation try to choose a candle which uses lavender essential oil to gain the aromatherapy benefit and help you fall into a restful sleep. Kiss Air Candles offer a highly fragranced lavender candle using a blend of lavender fragrance and essential oils that will not only fill the room with a floral scent but will help to relax the mind, body and soul allowing you to naturally drift off to sleep.
However, if you’re feeling amorous, choose candles scented with rose or ylang ylang to set the mood as they are said to have aphrodisiac properties and the flickering flames will add to the romantic atmosphere.
For many the living room is where most of our time is spent whether it be chilling in front of the TV after a hard day or catching up over a glass of wine with friends. The scent you choose can really set the mood. If you need to lift spirits a zesty scent such as bergamot will help, a soft musk gives a comforting feel while rosemary is said to be an energising fragrance.
The time of year can also play a part in the scents you choose from your home. During the hot, muggy evenings of the summer a fresh scent like mint will give a cooling feeling to the room but when the cold, dark winter nights draw in, switch it up to cosier, richer spicy scents to give you that Hygge feeling.
Whatever the room and whatever the fragrance you choose, a great scent can really transform the feel of your home as well as your mood. For lots more fragrances and expert advice, go to www.kiss-air.com
