Making Great First Impressions

Making Great First Impressions

This is the second instalment of our blog in partnership with The Living House, an online interior design service bringing you affordable interior design ideas and solutions for your home. 

As we get ready to welcome friends and family back into our homes, following a year of lockdowns and restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic, let’s look at how to make a great first impression. Entrance halls can sometimes be a forgotten space, somewhere you just pass through, but when used to their full potential they can set the scene for your home.

Whether you have a porch, are opening the door to a grand staircase or just have enough room to turn around a hang a coat there are many ways you can amp up your style and make a great first impression, especially with the help of home fragrance.

Estate Agents often say the first thing people notice about your home is the smell. I’m sure many of us have tried this when selling our house by brewing a fresh pot of coffee or, for the more creative of us, baking a loaf of bread.

Like choosing the right paint colour or accessories, choosing the right scent for your home can create an atmosphere. As you step over the threshold your guests could feel a sense of calm, finesse or invigoration. What atmosphere do you want to create for your guests?

Fresh & Clean

If you want people to notice how clean your home is straight away go for Fresh Linen, a classic clean scent that’s strong and bold. There’ll be no mistaking whether you look after your home with this long lasting powdery musk fragrance with orange blossom and refreshing green hints on a base of jasmine and lily. This is what clean smells like and could even help with those short notice guests, just pop some melts in your burner and your home is fresh, clean and ready to go. 

Warm & Welcoming

A warm scent that will have your guest feeling like they’re ready to get comfy by an open fire is our Dark Honey & Tobacco. This is one of our darker more masculine fragrances with the scent of tobacco leaf softened by an accent of honey. Always a popular choice and would be great in a diffuser by the stairs so the fragrance can drift through the air and fill your space.

Understated & Sophisticated  

When you’ve created a sense of calm through clean lines, muted tones and minimalism you want your fragrance to compliment that. Our Himalayan Cedar & Jasmine candle can do just that with its relaxing ambient notes. It starts with sparkling citrus top notes that lead into a heart of exotic jasmine with white florals, all of which sit on a base of cedarwood, patchouli and vanilla. Light your candle an hour or two before guests arrive to enable the sophisticated aroma that is modern and understated to tickle their senses as they enter.
