The quickest and easiest way to make your home feel more inviting is to fill it with a beautiful scent. Here are a few different options to keep your home smelling fresh as a daisy!


Different ways to scent your space


A scented candle is a great way to add a touch of ambience and beautiful fragrance to your home. Many quality candles are so strongly fragranced that you don't even need to light them to enjoy their scent! As for the best smelling candles for your home, that's all down to personal taste. Flower Power's range encompasses everything from sweet and gourmand to fresh, citrusy, spicy and woody scents. Whatever your preference, our top recommendation is that you choose a candle with a long burn time so you can enjoy the scent for longer. Remember, there are a few things you should do to get the best performance out of your candle.

  1. Ensure the wax melts all the way to the edges on your first use.
  2. Always burn for the amount of time recommended on the label.
  3. Trim the wick after each use to prevent smoking and soot build-up.
  4. Follow your candle's safety instructions to the letter, and discontinue use when the wax reaches the recommended level.

Perfect for living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms, reed diffusers emit a continuous scent that will last for weeks. Choose from a range of options to suit your space including classic reed diffusers and innovative liquidless diffusers. Don't forget, if you choose a classic reed diffuser, you should flip the reeds regularly. This will help ensure you get the full impact of your chosen scent.

Simple room sprays

Want an instant burst of fragrance? A room spray is always a handy option to have on hand. These are great options for entryways and communal spaces where you might not always want to have a diffuser running, but where a quick freshen-up might be useful.

Potted plants

Want a scent that will last and last? Consider choosing an indoor potted plant with a strong scent for a real sensory treat. This might be a herb, like mint or basil, which you can grow on your kitchen windowsill to enjoy its natural scent (bonus: fresh herbs at your fingertips for cooking!). You could also choose an indoor flowering plant like a sweet-scented hoya, or bring your potted bulbs indoors when in flower for a spectacular show of colour and scent.


Cut flowers and foliage

If you're a green thumb and you have some beautifully scented plants in your garden, consider taking some cuttings for an indoor arrangement! Roses, gardenias and jasmine all make great additions to indoor cut floral arrangements. You can also use strongly scented foliage such as eucalyptus, which is particularly popular in bathrooms.


Fresh eucalyptus leaves are a popular addition to bathrooms.


How to make your home smell good

With so much choice on the market, it can be tempting to fill your home with every scent you can find - but this isn't always an effective move! Here are our top tips.

Tip 1: Layer your fragrance.

If you want to create a harmonious feel and strengthen the scent in your home, using the same scent in different ways can really help. It's the same concept as layering a matching shower gel, body lotion and perfume on your body to help the scent last. If you have a scented diffuser in your living room, you might want to have a candle in the matching scent on hand, and light it in the evening to intensify the scent. Similarly, using a matching laundry liquid, dryer ball scent and linen spray will intensify the fragrance in your clothes, rather than resulting in a mish-mash of competing scents.

Tip 2: Choose complementary scents.

Don't want to have the same scent in every room of your home? That's totally fine! Using different scents in different areas can help define the zones in your home and create a different feel in each area. The key here is to use scents that have a commonality to them - whether that's a particular scent note, a fragrance family or an overall feel - to ensure a sense of harmony when moving from room to room and scent to scent.

Tip 3: Match your scent to your styling.

It's always nice to create synergy between the style of a home and the way it's scented. Going for a coastal or beach-inspired home? Consider light scents that call to mind sea breezes. A strong floral or woody scent might feel more at home among rustic, country-inspired decor, while a modern resort-inspired home might call for herbaceous or fruity scents.

Tip 4: Don't overdo it.

Our sense of smell is one of our strongest, and it's easy to become overwhelmed. If you have a diffuser and a candle, and both are strongly scented (ie. the candle throws scent without being lit), consider placing them in different rooms, or at opposite ends of the same room if it's large enough. This will ensure you enjoy a pleasant scent experience without it becoming too much on your senses.

Tip 5: Make airflow a priority.

Houses that are constantly closed up with no airflow can start to smell less than delightful - and the point of luxe home fragrance is not to conceal, but to enhance. Make sure you're regularly airing out your house, whether by opening windows or doors, to ensure no stale or mildewy scents begin to develop.
