How to choose a home fragrance

Incense is not an essential item, but it is the aroma that creates a unique atmosphere in the house. For the first time, items that flavored the room were used in religious rites. Traditionally, ambergris, myrrh, sandalwood, musk, incense, and backgammon were used. Today we will talk about how these flavors migrated to the interior, and what role they began to play.

Four key rules for choosing a fragrance
1. The fragrance should not conflict with the style of the interior.
Just as perfume complements your image, home fragrance should give the apartment a special atmosphere. If the house is designed in the style of high-tech, it is unlikely that it “face” will be stuffy Oriental smells. Under the strict graphic interior will fit the aroma of cool greenery.

2. For each functional zone, you need to choose the appropriate flavor.
For example, in the bedroom, sharp and stuffy scents can cause migraines, and bright acidic ones can cause insomnia. In the kitchen, cold herbal smells can cause a lack of appetite. Moreover, the same loop in the kitchen and bathroom at the same time looks comical.

3. Use less bright menthol and citrus notes.
They cause emotional activity, and it is difficult to get used to them. For living rooms, it is better to choose cozy and unobtrusive scents of flowers, herbs, wood and warm spices. When choosing a fragrance, consider the preferences of all the inhabitants of the house. For example, if you like sugary fruit smells, household members may be uncomfortable with them.

4. Don’t use cheap fragrances.
The standard smells of “sea breeze” or “Alpine meadows” are associated with public spaces and can create uncomfortable associations. Cheap scented candles may not produce any aroma at all, and Oriental sticks can cause allergies.

All odors are divided into atmospheric and masking. The first are light scents that are suitable for living rooms and bedrooms, and the second are bright scents that can hide unpleasant odors in the kitchen or bathroom. Each room and each owner will have its own source of fragrance. In order to decide, you need to know all the variety of choices.

How to choose the right fragrance
The question of choosing a fragrance should naturally disappear by itself. First of all, the fragrance is selected intuitively, just like a body perfume. Apply it to your skin and temples, walk around, get used to it, and you will know for sure whether you can live with it. Any fragrance, like any expensive perfume, will not manifest itself immediately, it must be allowed to open up within 15-20 minutes.

What fragrances are in fashion today
Choosing a fragrance for your home, you can not rely on fashion, completely trust your sense of smell. Niche perfume houses in the field of home fragrances are not chasing the creation of a trend for some non-standard unappetizing smell, they are trying to play on the sensor. Therefore, the trend is always unisex fragrances that can cause pleasant associations with childhood: fresh grass, honey, the smell of wood, daffodils. This allows you to create an emotional message that can set the tone for the mood in the house.
