Home fragrance: How to make your house smell heavenly

November 17, 2017
scent fragrance diffusers for the home

My home is open plan so smells travel all around the house, especially when I'm cooking. I also have a dog so I'm very conscious of my house smelling. I use a variety of scents to make sure my home smells fresh and clean. I get a lot of compliments on how nice my house smells when guests come over and using a variety of scents means you can always smell different aromas in each room.

1. Plug-in air fresheners
These are probably the most effective and discreet but with maximum effect. My favourite is the Ambi Pur 3 in 1 Plug-In. It can last up to 90 days as it has 3 different aromas on rotation, so you always get a new smell as you walk past. The best position for the plug-ins are in your entrance hall and living room. The best fragrance I like is Pet Odour Refill - It's so fresh and I you don't need to have a pet to enjoy these aromas.

2. Oil Diffuser sticks
You can get some amazing smells from oil diffuser sticks. I've had several over the years and they make a great gift. They work well in any room, especially bathrooms. 

3. Wax melt plugin
One of my favourites and very powerful. My friends brought me a Yankee Wax Melt Cup for Christmas last year and I absolutely love it, I turn it on nearly every day! It's a plugin but it's on a timer so you have a choice to have it on for 3, 6 or 9 hours at a time. There are so many different aromas to choose from and they really make your house smell amazing.

4. Scented candles
I love candles, any time of the year, but especially in the darker winter nights. It fills any room with instant warmth and if you pick a good one, it can fill an entire room with a heavenly scent.

5. Mist spray
Like a freshener spray but more concentrated so maximum effect.  Like perfume, it's strong and powerful at the beginning and you get subtle hints throughout the day. MOLTON BROWN Ylang-Ylang & Linen Mist is a great fragrance, and also Neom De-Stress is one of my favourites.

6. Essential oil humidifier
I've only been introduced to these this year on oh boy they are a game changer! They remind me of being in a spa and you definitely need to put one of these on your Christmas list.
