How To Make Your Home Smell Amazing.

*This post was written in collaboration with Notino.de


Since I moved to our new apartment in December, I have been all about the small things to make our home more homely. One of the things, that may seem small, but actually, make the biggest difference is how your home smells. And it's so fun as well. I love changing up scents to go hand in hand with the new season. Today I will share with you different ways to make your home smell exactly the way you want it. 

Candles are probably the most obvious choice when it comes to bringing a beautiful scent to your house. And it's probably also my fave. It not only makes the room smell like cookies, roses or fresh linen, but candles also give the room a coziness that no artificial light can. My current go-to candles are the Woodwick candles, as they not only smell amazing, but they also give this cozy crinkle sound which reminds me of a fireplace. All the cozy vibes.

On the other side, you might not think about handsoaps when it comes to scent your house. And obviously, a good smelling soap is not something you notice all the time. However, have you ever been to a really fancy restaurant or hotel and their soap smelled so amazing that it made yourself feel even fancier? Well, if you want to go for that, then I can only recommend the Aesop handsoaps. Literally, the packaging and the actual soap are amazing and I feel like my hands smell luxurious even an hour after washing them.

A diffuser is a great alternative to a candle when you want something that constantly smells nice, even when you are not at home or you have children around and you'd prefer not to have a candle burning. I love to use a diffuser in the bathroom, as I don't tend to light a candle there.

A room spray is kind of an 'emergency' tool for me. Your home smells instantly beautiful, without having to wait for the scent of the candle or diffuser to spread. Especially great after cooking an Indian meal by the way.

  4. I love Woodwick candles but for some reason they are not the ones I pick up, I really should pick one up again. I love using really nice smelling cleaning products and air plug ins are sooo good.

  5. I love candles, it's my favourite way of making the house smell nice! I still have to invest in health-friendly candles though, as most of them are actually quite bad for you... Or so I've heard! Soap is a great one too, thank you for sharing! :)

  7. I'm far too obsessed with home fragrance, I love a wax burner though for smell payoff, they are incredible. The scentsy ones are usually the best. I love Jo Malone candles for some fancy moments though, and for cheaper the Aldi ones are actually really good, and the primark reed defusers are fab!

  8. Yes! I'm totally on the same page as you Lisa! Despite that I have quite the collection of Neom candles, I only started lighting them more regularly recently and purchaing some nice diffusers after all the holiday buzz. With people having come over to my house a lot more, I wanted to make sure it smelled nice you could say, and now I'm hooked to keeping it smelling this way all the time. I also have a hand soap from Molton Brown which as been life changing hehe.

  29. Ok so, I have to admit that I am far too obsessed with luxury candles. I just can't live without my Benjoin, Feu de Bois, Baies and Opopanax. And I love adding a few dashes of their roomsprays into my diffuser. And as I can see, you love candles as much as I do. So I can only imagine how lovely your home smells. Wanted to try the Wood Wick candles too, need to have a look. Thanks for the beautiful Inspiration.

    PS: Aesops Post Poo Drobs are insane too!

  45. I agree, scents in the home is so important. I love Aesop and have only tried a few things. We use natural non-toxic and eco-friendly items in our home. Beautiful presentation.

  46. I absolutely love scented candles and hand soaps. My favorite are the autumnal and holidays scents. I usually stock up on them when they go on sale and have enough to last me until the next holidays season. I definitely have to try a difuser. I've seen them at Muji and they make the place smell wonderful. x
