Let's being with what's probably the first room you walk into inside the house: the living room. Apart from your bathroom, this is probably the only room in your place where your guests can come into and feel welcome. And since this is where it's likely there will be a ton of people all in one time, your scent here needs to calm and soft. This is why a cedarwood scent might work. The woodsy appeal might do well with your guests, especially if you mix it with floral hints for that natural feel. It’s a great option if your home is in a beautiful city like Paris. And for that hint? Try lavender or rose!

Forward onto the kitchen. Now, this is where the smells get stronger and clash more. When you're cooking, the steam from your pot or frying pan will automatically spread throughout your kitchen. And if what you're cooking is really flavorful, that smell will stay for a good amount of time. However, if you light up some citrus candles here and there, this can alter the scent. Citrus is both strong and soothing at the same time. Its fruitiness won't overwhelm your nose as you enter the kitchen, especially if you’re living in a food capital like London! It might even get you craving for some juice or punch too!
Choosing the best scent for your home office, or commonly referred to as the "study," can be tricky. If you work from home, this is where you'll spend most of your day. but if you have your own office outside, then you'll probably hang out here the least. Either way, this is where you'll keep most of your important work stuff, and it pays to have them smelling good here whether you work from home or not. So why not try peppermint? The minty aroma is strong enough to last a good few days, some even if you work outside, when you pop on over here to get some documents, they'll still smell like peppermint!
Imagine you’re living in a Paris home but your bathroom stinks. You wouldn’t want that, would you? The bathroom is arguably the second smelliest room in the whole house, and for all the worse reasons too. So it's not wise to set up a scent here that's strong, such as citrus, peppermint, and the like. Think of how awful that mix of these strong scents with that from your own deeds will smell like! No, in your bathroom, it's all about freshness. Floral scents might work but cucumber is a better option. You don't have to put the entire vegetable in the room, but a spritz of the scent here and there and it'll all work out fine!
The most important thing to remember about your bedroom is this is where you'll need to relax. This is your own sanctuary and you should feel your calmest and most tranquil here. So this also means that your scent should be too intense as well. Arguably the best scent for your bedroom is definitely vanilla. Burning vanilla incense sticks in your room will provide a creamy and light aroma without having to stimulate your senses all too much. The smell will calm your nerves, keep you relaxed, and will help you fall asleep faster and easier at night!
Finally, your backyard! While this isn't exactly a room in your house, per se, it still deserves to have its own scent. More so if the smells around your place aren't all that good to begin with. Perhaps the easiest scent to have in your backyard is a floral scent, and that's because you might already have a garden there already. Do you want a romantic rose scent? Plant more roses? Prefer a more relaxing lavender scent? Hang some nice lavender plants around. Incidentally, placing plants in your home is easier than you think. Though it won't hurt to amp up the scents with some candles and incense!
Each room in your house is different, which also means the should smell differently as well. Here are the perfect scents for each room you have at your place. You'll enjoy staying in every single one of them when you put these on!
