Yesterday, I blogged about creating an instant fireplace for your home. I mentioned a certain incense that is a personal favorite. I received great emails from so many of you that loved the fireplace idea but also shared my love of that great smoldering fire scent.
With autumn approaching, we are thinking of spending more time in our home spaces. After yesterday’s response, I wanted to talk about another home scent that I thought was worth sharing with you.
As you know, I am a firm believer in all your senses being affected when you come into your home or have guests over. I have found that sometimes home scents or candles can be too overpowering or overly-sweet smelling. In the case of this great Autumn Spice Candle from Seda-France – from their Pagoda Box Candle Collection – I have found a lingering scent that is pleasing and subtle enough for your everyday living spaces. Plus, with the holiday season just around the corner, I also think this reasonably-priced candle makes for a great hostess present or house warming gift too.
Aside from the candles, a room diffuser is great too. In this case, their stylish glass diffusers comes in a great looking box with the reeds and the diffuser oil inside. Another great gift idea that can be in the same scent as the candle Autumn Spice.
Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be searching out great home products and ideas that I’ll share with you for your own home – but I’ll be keeping an eye out for some great gift ideas for the upcoming holidays too…
So as we think about spending more time inside our rooms once again – I figured this was another idea that could help make your environments more inviting…All about saying “welcome home” as you enter through your front doors at the end of the day…
