Ever walked into a luxury 5-star resort, or maybe your favourite shop and felt instantly calm, or happy? There’s good reason for that. They are often using aromatic diffusers to help awaken your senses. It could be a blend of lavender, or perhaps rejuvenating citrus. You can do the same. Here’s some of our favourite tips and home fragrances.
Become a scent DJ
Yes, you read that right! There’s a new fragrance diffuser on the market that allows you to mix up scents. Using four different capsules, Moodo allows you make a unique blend, or you can use their smartphone app and use suggested scent combos.
Mix it up
Don’t be afraid to mix your favourite fragrances, if there’s two scents you love, burn them next to each other. Kirsten Walker of Palm Beach Collection recommends using a ‘buffer’ fragrance in hallways and connecting areas.
‘Palm Beach Collection Sea Salt (pictured above) is the ideal ‘buffer’ as it re-sets the senses and is refreshing without being overpowering,’ she says.
Best for living areas
According to Kirsten, when choosing a fragrance for these busier areas look to sweet and fruity scents.
‘Not only do these scents gently fill the room with uplifting summery notes, they will also create a refreshed and comfortable atmosphere,’ she says.
New Idea loves the HoMedics Ellia Gather Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser from Harvey Norman, a diffuser to distribute any scent you desire.
The bedroom and other quiet areas of the home are supposed to be relaxing and a place to switch off.
‘The perfect match for these spaces are sensual and soothing fragrances. Notes of musk and floral are the perfect combination to create a calm ambience,’ says Kirsten.
