How to layer your home fragrance

Home fragrance Layering

This popularity has created an incredible demand for a variety in scents and forms of fragrance. Essence oils, fragrance sprays, candles, light bulb rings, drawer liners, soaps, incense, sachets, simmering crystals, and potpourri are just a few of your choices, depending upon your lifestyle and personal preferences.

Just as layering your personal fragrance with powder, lotion, and cologne makes a richer, longer lasting smell, the same is true of home fragrances. Try using different forms of the same scent throughout your house for a “home sweet home”. Although you might want to mix and match, we recommend sticking to one fragrance family at a time.
Please click here for our article on fragrance families.

  • Level 1-3
    Potpourri, Scented Rocks, Scented Beads, Stone Diffuser, Reed Diffusers, Scented Drawer Liners, Sachets

    These fragrance choices are what we call the stage. They set the tone and mood in your home.
    The above choices all provide you with a nice, subtle, ever-present scent.
    Most of these fragrance choices will last 4-12 weeks depending on size.
    All can be refreshed or refilled.

  • Level 4-6
    Jar, Pillar and Votive Candles, Linen Sprays, Scented Soaps, Incense

    These all provide you with a step above your background level. A way to increase intensity of fragrance in your surroundings.
    Nice to light candles for a while to add to your existing fragrance.
    Lighting candles an hour before guests arrive will give you more umpph to your home fragrance.
    Scented soaps add a nice feel in guest bathrooms.

  • Level 7-8
    Room Sprays, Room Mist, Simmering Potpourri, Potpourri Tarts, Simmering Oil, Lamp rings (for oils)

    All of these products will give you an extra amount of fragrance released into your home.
    Combine with levels 1-6 for a greater scent experience.
    They are formulated different with the opportunity to enhance an greater release of fragrance into your home.

  • Level 9-10
    Fragrance Lampes, Refresher oils

    For the strongest fragrance release opportunities use these in your home. Fragrance lampes not only scent the air but clean and purify the air much like an ozonator without the noise.

Be careful with the fragrance products you buy! Not all home fragrance oils are created equal. remember that old saying your Mom had…You get what you pay for. That applies here. The amount of fragrance oil used in your home fragrance choice like candles, potpourri, reed diffusers, potpourri tarts, warming oils, room sprays and lampe oils is going to effect what you pay for.

Among the 100’s of scented home products – especially the enormous variety of candles – the most popular fragrances are consistently vanilla, cinnamon, and rose. Seasonal smells are also popular, such as apples, cinnamon, and peaches in the fall and winter, and clean, fresh scents during March through May. Other scents, including lavender, sandalwood and patchouli enjoy steady year-round sales because of their applications in aromatherapy.

Although you don’t want to overpower visitors to your personal space with too much scent, you can’t realistically expect one candle to scent the entire house. Generally one candle per room is a more realistic ratio. Don’t be stingy with your scent. Some of the stronger oil-based scents can easily fill an small room like a bathroom, office, den with their aroma. Open bowls of potpourri gently fragrance the immediate vicinity, but oils (and freshly administered room sprays) are far less subtle and should be used only in larger areas.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with new forms and scents of home fragrance. Just remember to layer your fragrance. You do not want guests to arrive and be anxiously waiting for a breath of fresh air.
