My favorite color palette is monochromatic shades of black, white and grey. And yes – I will purchase two of the same dress. However, when it comes to fragrance in my home I like variety. I want the fragrance in my bedroom to be different from that in my living room. Struggling with how you can use different scents throughout your home? You are not alone. We receive a lot of inquiries regarding this topic.
The easiest way to accomplish this is to find some common ground. For example if you like fruit fragrances use that as your base in selecting different scents you want to use at the same time. This formula works for all forms of home fragrance. Selecting a common fragrance family will give you an opportunity to find out what it is you are really drawn to in a fragrance.
I personally prefer wood scents. With this, most of the candles and diffusers throughout my home contain at least one of the following: bergamot, patchouli, sandalwood, and/or cedar. On any given day I combine the scents below as follows:
Bedroom: Dayna Decker Jacaranda Blossoms (Sandalwood & Cedar)
Living Room: Esteban Paris Cedar (Cedarwood, Patchouli & Sandalwood)
Study: Archipelago Boticario de Havana (Bergamot and Tobacco Flower)
Bathroom: Cote Bastide Neflier (Medlar Tree)
Breakfast Room: Dayna Decker Taiga (Eucalyptus, Amber, Musk and Lemon)
Kitchen: D.L. & Co. Thorn Apple (Applewood, Vetiver & Patchouli)
A candle like Taiga from Dayna Decker is a great transitional fragrance. It combines Lemon, Black Peppercorn, Eucalyptus, Warm Amber and Musk. It works well with wood fragrances, but also has a hint of citrus so you can use other fruit-fragranced candles or diffusers in rooms close by. They will complement one another instead of competing. In the example above I use D.L. & Co.’s Thorn Apple fragrance in the kitchen. Thorn apple contains both fruit and wood type fragrances and is used next to my breakfast room where I use Taiga also featuring fruit and wood scents.
