How to Choose Fragrance

Take a minute and think about your favorite person. When they come to mind, is there a certain smell you associate with them? Most of us associate certain scents with our favorite places and people; that’s why it’s so important to choose a fragrance that compliments your personality when you decide how to fragrance your home. What scent do you want your friends and family to associate with you? If you’re not sure, we’ve created a few guidelines to help you choose!


1. Consider the top, middle, and base notes.

The top note of any fragrance is the first impression you get from that scent, then after a little while you’ll smell the middle notes, and the base notes are the bold, strong notes which tie the scent together. You can learn more about these terms here. Think about what fragrance you want to be the first impression a visitor has in your home. Do you want it to be bold, soft, warm, or cool? Citrus fragrances have a bright, tart top note. Fresh fragrances have a light and airy first impression, often followed by a complimentary floral, herbal, or green middle. Oriental and Spice scents have unique scent profiles- sometimes warm and soothing, other times bold and sparkling. You can search by fragrance category on the site to see which scents fall into the different fragrance categories. Just click here.

2. What’s your day to day like?

You’ll want to choose a scent that compliments your every day. Are you often on the move, darting between different tasks and meetings? Go for a fresh and clean scent that’s subtle amid the busyness of your daily life- Lavender Lane, White Cotton, Open Road, and Storybook Dreams are great light fragrances that can add some continuity to your varied days.

Do you work from home or spend a large portion of your day on the computer? Create an alert and energizing atmosphere with a citrus or fruity fragrance- Soar, Orange and Honey, Kiss in the Rain, and Pomegranate are just the thing for that afternoon slump.

Is most of your time spent at home in the evening, after a long day out and about or in the office? Keep warm and cozy scents stocked so that you can promote a relaxing, inviting atmosphere. Cozy Moments, Remember When, Sweet Grace, and Afternoon Retreat help us wind down at the end of the day, all year long.
