A stove simmer
Have you ever walked into the house and immediately guessed what’s made for dinner? The overwhelming aroma of food cooking on the stovetop takes over your home, but in a nice way. Use the same principle to make your home fragrant.
Prepare a stovetop simmer to work as a long-lasting room freshener. Simmer some water and throw in your favorite herbs like mint, lavender, cinnamon, star anise, citrus, etc. This would work a treat for dinner parties as well.
Place scented candles strategically
Scented candles are huge this fall. They add a subtle warm and amazing fragrance to the space. Placing these candles strategically can really help make your home fragrant. You don’t even need to light them to make a room smell good. Try placing unlit scented candles in your linen closet. The fabric absorbs the scent so whenever you change your bedsheets, there’s a distinct fragrance in the lines.
If you love baking, you know that the aroma left behind lasts for many hours after you’ve baked. To make your home smell warm and inviting, start baking a few times a week. Even a simple loaf full of cinnamon and vanilla is good enough to prepare your home for fall.
