Set the tone of your space with a signature fragrance blend.
The sense of smell is connected to emotion and memories more closely than any other sense. A fresh floral sachet, plumes from a sugar cookie-scented candle, the nostalgic air of a well-loved leather couch — olfactory stimuli like these play a key part in the vibe of a room. Curating a multifaceted “scent scene” for your home is a fun, personal way to make an impression. Start with some of these home fragrances from local retailers.
