20 OF THE BEST OF HOME FRAGRANCES

feminine home fragrance

Home fragrance is a strange thing to try and get across online without you having ever actually 'smelt' the product. Seeing as I'm someone who's gone from hardly ever having a decent candle to someone who is almost obsessed with having the right scent for the right mood I thought I would use my first ever still life styling test shoot as a way to portray the 4 different types of scent that I think home fragrance falls into - Feminine, Spiritual, Fresh and Masculine.

FEMININE

Feminine fragrances aren't just about wearing a dressing gown and taking baths. Far from it actually. To me, these soft, gentle fragrances are perfect for the times you want to feel relaxed and relish in those home comforts. For when you want to feel cared for. Think cuddles with your loved ones or falling asleep on the sofa.

I use these home scents for moments of reflection. Meditation, yoga, moon gazing or other such activities! These are perfect for when you want to really tune in to yourself, get grounded and feel the higher power man!

Fresh, citrusy scents are best suited to summer days or when you want to energise your home. Think Saturday morning before you have guests visit, or just after you've spring cleaned your flat. To me they signal energy and new beginnings.

MASCULINE Home fragrance

Masculine scents are a little woody, complex and mysterious. I think they work best in the evening or for cold winter nights and can be quite romantic too. They also make me think of countryside manor houses and typical english gentlemen - Downton Abbey eat your heart out.
