Scenting your spaces: Introduction

Scenting your spaces: Introduction

With the evolution of my understanding of scents, I have come to appreciate how different vessels and fragrances perform relative to the space I put them in. No matter your love for a particular scented product or its vessel’s aesthetics, it is important to be aware that they may not have the same desired impact in every space and to fully maximise the performance of a scented product, we need to understand how they work and where they work best. If you often feel like your candle doesn't smell strong enough or that perhaps it smells a lot stronger in your bedroom than your living room or maybe even differently in the Summer vs the Winter; this could be due to a variety of factors such as the size of your space, the specific location of the candle or diffuser or even the humidity in the room. For Scented Candles, the intensity of your candle scent differs depending on where you place your candle, its surroundings, the size of the room as well as your candle. There is an 8-10 Rule that states that one places one 8 ounce candle for every 10 square feet of room. For Reed Diffuser, it is important to ensure that they are not placed directly in front of the window or a draughty location and also flip the reeds often to maintain a steady state diffusion effect. In my next post, I will explain how I select scents for each space in my home :)
