Olfactory signature

Do you know what an olfactory signature is?

The olfactory signature of your home is like an invisible business card, a subtle expression of your identity and lifestyle. So how do you create that olfactory signature that's uniquely yours?

Identify the smells:

Start by identifying which smells bring comfort and happiness to you. Think about fragrances that evoke positive memories or that you naturally gravitate towards. Your scent signature should be something you love, as it will be the predominant scent in your home.

Harmony with the Environment: 

Consider the style and atmosphere of your home. A country house might pair well with earthy, herbal scents, while a modern apartment might be complemented by fresher, cleaner smells. The chosen essence must complement the environment, not compete with it.

Intensity and Balance: 

Balance the intensity of the scent to ensure it is noticeable without being overpowering. You may want a softer scent for the bedroom and something more vibrant for the living room. It is important that the fragrance spreads in a balanced way, creating a feeling of harmony throughout the space.

Creating an olfactory signature is an act of love and self-expression. It is the search for a fragrant harmony that welcomes and says “welcome to my world”.

Breathe Health: natural aromas

By choosing the right fragrances, the act of breathing takes on a new dimension. Aromas have the incredible power to nourish the body and soul, but it is very important to pay attention to some fundamental points that will improve your experience and promote health and well-being for everyone in your home:

Choose the Purity of Essential Oils

Investing in pure essential oils is choosing a path to well-being. These concentrated plant extracts maintain natural properties that can positively influence health. For example, eucalyptus is known for its purifying properties and can help improve breathing, while lavender can help reduce stress and promote restful sleep.

High Quality Incenses

If you are an incense fan, quality is essential. Natural incense made with pure resins, herbs, and essential oils can offer an aromatic experience without the harmful chemical byproducts found in some synthetic versions. They can create a serene environment conducive to meditation and relaxation while subtly cleansing the space.

Beware of Synthetics

Avoid synthetic air fresheners and candles with artificial fragrances, which can contain volatile compounds that aren't as healthy to breathe. These can be especially irritating to children, the elderly, and people with respiratory sensitivities or allergies.

Consider Individual Needs

Each person is unique, and what is invigorating for one may be overwhelming for another. Be mindful of the health needs of each member of your household when choosing scents. Some fragrances can be adaptogenic, meaning they help the body adapt to stress and balance itself, which is beneficial for everyone.

The Power of Accessories in Decoration

Accessories play a crucial role in home decor, adding personality, comfort and functionality to your space.

Simple tips for perfuming your home

Here are some simple tips to perfume your home and promote a delicious feeling of well-being in everyone who enters your home.

Aroma Diffusers

Whether stick or electric, diffusers are a practical way to spread your favorite essential oil around your home. Lavender to relax or lemon to energize? It's your choice!

Remember that there is the possibility of making your own diffuser with sticks, bringing your personal brand and identity to the perfume of your home. There are several courses teaching how to do Youtube.

Fresh Plants and Flowers

Nothing like nature to bring freshness and perfume. Choose plants like eucalyptus, lavender or jasmine for a natural, air-purifying fragrance.

Scented Candles

Love candles? Light a scented candle and let the soft flame and chosen scent create a welcoming atmosphere. Perfect for a late afternoon or a special dinner; However, remember to purchase a quality candle so that it does not cause harm to your health and that of your family.

Ambient Sprays

With a few sprays, you can instantly freshen up any room. Opt for natural sprays or make your own with water and essential oils. Try to purchase good quality essential oils, which, in addition to having greater durability, are beneficial for your health.

Cloth on the floor with soft essences

Did you finish cleaning the house? Put a few drops of your favorite essence in a bucket with a little water and rub it all over the house. Be careful not to stain the floor in places that cannot get wet. In these rooms, opt for room spray.

Aromatic Sachets

Sachets are wonderful for leaving closets and, consequently, clothes scented. Place lavender or cedar sachets in cabinets and drawers. In addition to scenting your clothes, they help repel moths and insects.

Sodium bicarbonate

Neutralize unwanted odors with a little baking soda at strategic points. It is great for absorbing odors and can be used on carpets, trash cans and even the sofa.

Fresh coffee

The smell of freshly ground coffee can bring a feeling of comfort and joy. If you like this smell in the kitchen, place coffee beans in small open jars and let the inviting aroma spread.

Always remember: the secret is to choose fragrances that you love and that bring positive feelings to you and your family. With these simple touches, your home will not just be a place to live, but a cozy space that will promote continued well-being for everyone.

Tips for leaving sheets and towels scented

Who doesn't love being hugged by a scented bath towel? And a clean, fragrant sheet?

If you are one of the team that loves the scent of your bedding, you need to follow the tips below:

1- Natural essences:

Use essential oils: Add a few drops of essential oils, such as lavender, eucalyptus, lemon or peppermint, to a mixture of water in a spray bottle. Spray lightly on sheets and towels.

Herb sachets: Make sachets of dried herbs, such as lavender, rosemary, or peppermint, and place them in the closets where you store sheets and towels.

2- Outdoor drying:

If possible, dry your sheets and towels in the sun. Exposure to the sun helps eliminate odors and leaves a fresh, natural smell.

3- White vinegar:

Add a cup of white vinegar to the final rinse water: Vinegar helps neutralize odors and can leave your clothes with a gentle fragrance when they dry.

4- Proper Storage:

Make sure towels and sheets are completely dry before putting them away. Moisture can lead to mold and unpleasant odors.

5- Dried, stored:

As soon as the clothes are dry on the line, collect and store them. The longer you leave clean clothes on the line after drying, the less soap and fabric softener scent they retain.

6- Frequent exchange:

Change all bed linen and sheets weekly. If possible, wash it as quickly as you can and store it in a drawer or cupboard with scented sachets. By doing this, your bed and bath linen will always be fragrant.

The experience of creating a fragrant environment will make you reinvent yourself and become more creative every day in this universe of smells.

How about changing with the seasons?

Just as the seasons change, so can your home. Fresh and fruity aromas in spring, floral in summer, warm spices in autumn and pine in winter; each season has its perfume.

Have a good time. There are no limits to the magic you can create.
