Scents of a Season
By: Avery Matera
Helen Keller famously believed, “smell is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived.” And, while each individual likely feels exactly that way each time they spray themselves with a personal fragrance, the same is true for your home. In fact, in many ways, it’s even more apt a statement from the late activist.
There are so many ways in which to bring fragrance into your home. Some are more subtle than others, many through burning wicks, others via oil or steam, and more still an easy spray bottle for both the air as well as your furniture. The list goes on.
What’s more, while you might have chosen your personal fragrance with expert care, your home deserves the same treatment. There’s no need to agonize over your choices, though, for this season has brought with it some brand-new scents and gorgeous coffee table-worthy products that will have you dreaming of the way each room in your home smells. Guests will even notice it as well!
For those looking for a citrus-based scent, consider Louis Vuitton’s new candle; if you’re after more of a wood burning fireplace appeal, consider one of Diptyque’s signature fragrances; or, perhaps, it’s just as much about the presentation as it is the smell that disperses into your home, in which case Gucci’s Murano glass candle is just the thing for you.
Here, we’ve highlighted the season’s newest — and most popular — in home scents. From candles to diffusers, you’ll have a hard time settling on just one.
Île Blanche Fragrance Candle
This candle scent is created by perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, with a crisp citrus-meets-cotton allure that will make you feel as though you’re sitting on the porch of a seaside resort without —well—actually being there.
Le Labo Candle Discovery Set
Get a little bit of everything — at least when it comes to Le Labo’s most popular scents — with a Discovery candle scent that will have every room in your home not only smelling completely delicious, but serene as well.
Vitruvi Porcelain Essential Oil Diffuser
If you’re looking for an essential oil-based fragrance, consider a diffuser that will disperse infused steam into the air of your home. And, with this Vitruvi style, it will blend in with the rest of your home in an effortless and streamlined manner.
Pine & Eucalyptus Diffuser
Jo Malone London
This sleek glass, chrome, and black-reed diffuser will have your home smelling like a forest in no time. With a hint of eucalyptus, the pine-based scent is balanced out with a little bit of an edge that makes it like no other.
