Have you ever walked into a hotel, sniff the air and go… “ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, that smells so good”? I know I do, especially when I’m at Asia Square or Capita Green. For some reason, these scents seem to affect me and put me in a good mood for the rest of the day. So what’s the secret, and how do you make your house smell just as inviting for guests or potential tenant/buyers?
Sweet and romantic, this scent is suitable if you enjoy floral scents such rose, lavender, sage, chamomile, geranium, jasmine, juniper berry, lavender, rose, and ylang ylang.
The woody scent is generally warm, dry and sharp. This scent makes you feel like you’re in the middle of the forest where you can enjoy the fresh, natural, earthy scent of Atlas cedar, balsam fir, clove, cedarwood, cypress and pine. Having a woody scent in your home might also give your visitors a feel that they are in a furniture shop and give off the impression that all your furniture are brand new.
A personal favourite, the citrus scent is heavily infused with energetic and vibrant notes of citrus fruits such as lemon, grapefruit, orange, mandarin and bergamot. I just love how it keeps me awake and refreshed after a good night rest.
Another favourite scent of mine, I absolutely love the smell of ginger flowers from Shanghai Tang (this is not sponsored). This scent is aromatic, invigorating and includes anise, basil, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, oregano, tea tree, and thyme. Definitely exotic but give it a chance!
Want to make your house smell like fresh cookies? Try using scents with notes of vanilla and cocoa. Otherwise, just pop a few subway cookies in the oven to bring out that freshly baked fragrance! It’s also a good idea to brew some fresh coffee before your visitors arrive so that you can offer them a cuppa and have your house smell good! Double whammy!
