Fragrance can be a powerful way to reflect our personality and express our emotions – not just when we wear it ourselves, but when used throughout our home too
A room can be transformed with scent, changing the mood from vibrant and energising to soothing and restful. If you have an open-plan home, scent can be a really clever way to draw back the walls. With an open-plan living and kitchen area, for instance, you can use scent to mask cooking smells and also enhance the ambience of the room – our Summer Picnic is ideal for this. Then, in another corner of your open-plan space, where you go to relax and unwind, you can burn a fragrance like Paris Boudoir to instantly take you to a place of calm. Finally, in your home office, our Lavender Azure is a clean and focused fragrance, perfect for concentrating the mind and helping your brain get into a more productive mindset.
In addition to fragrance, candles create atmosphere with light. Candlelight produces a lovely ambience that simply cannot be replicated. Lighting a few well-placed candles in your home can really add effect and create a cosy and intimate atmosphere. Adding a candle here-and-there will create softness in your room and instantly make it feel warm and welcoming.
Candles are known for their soothing, healing properties and are often used by therapists, such as massage therapists, to create a peaceful ambience in their therapy rooms. The sheer act of lighting a candle, its lovely flicker and the gentle glow it creates, helps ease and soothe the mind. Give it a try the next time you have a stressful day: light a candle, watch the flame and just breathe for a few minutes - even just 60 seconds can make a big difference.
