Here is how to identify the perfect fragrance choice for your home:

Posted by Aston James Team on

Brains help determine your reaction to a scent.

You might assume that your nose dominates all the smelling, but it`s your brain that determines how you respond to a fragrance.

The part of your brain that’s responsible for your sense of smell (the limbic region) is also where you process emotions.

Aromatherapy (the art and science of smell), works by first stimulating smell receptors in the nose. These receptors send messages via the nervous system to the brain, which end up stimulating not just scent memory, but also emotional memory.

So for the bedroom, pick a scent to make you feel cosy and relaxed like vanilla, vetiver or fruity scents as they are distinctive yet subtle 

In the bathroom, you'll want to hide any bad odours, and include an invigorating and refreshing touch to the room - so a citrusy scent or one with fresh clean notes like Beach, Ocean or Fresh Linen.

If your lounge and living area is the place out spend the most downtime in, you'll want something chirpy and cheerful. It really depends on your decor. If your setup is minimalist, then opt for woody scents and if you have traditional decor then opt for floral fragrances.

For the kitchen, light smells that won't overpower the food aromas is best, so picking subtle aqua or spicy fragrances is key.

Overall, listen to what your brain tells you and what makes you feel best in your own environment.
