How to Choose the Best Scent For Each Room in Your Home

A quick browse of the Glabella Aromas range will show you just how many candle scents and reed diffuser scents are available. This is good news if you like a lot of choice, but it can make it difficult to find the perfect scent for your home. When you are choosing a scent, think about the specific room that your candle or reed diffuser will be placed in. The best scents for kitchen and bathrooms are very different scents to the scents that work well in bedrooms and living rooms. Instead of rushing in and choosing the first scent that takes your fancy, take a moment to carefully consider your options.


Which Scents Are Best For Your Room?


  • Living Room - In the living room, we recommend choosing a scent that’s cosy and welcoming, as this is somewhere that you will be relaxing and unwinding after a long day. Anything that has hints of sweetness and warmth is ideal, as are floral scents. Adding a fragrance to a living room isn’t about disguising existing smells, it’s about creating a welcoming and comfortable ambiance.


  • Bathroom - When you are buying a candle or room spray for your bathroom, you should choose something fresh and clean smelling. It’s best to avoid anything too fruity, as this can heighten existing bathroom smells, which is the opposite of what you want to be doing. Instead, we recommend choosing something citrusy or marine. These bring in freshness, helping you to keep the bathroom looking and smelling its best.


  • Kitchen - There are a lot of smells flying around a kitchen, especially if you are cooking, so choose a scent that is able to overpower them. You want to avoid anything that’s too similar to cooking smells, such as spiced fragrances, as these could intensify the smells that are already there. Instead, pick something that’s going to cut through and make a statement of its own.


  • Bedroom - Your bedroom is somewhere to relax, unwind and escape the stresses of the day. This is why cosy, welcoming and warm scents work best. You should avoid anything too fresh and clean, as this could create an energetic vibe in the room, and opt for something relaxing. Lavender is a good choice for a bedroom, as well as more masculine scents.
