Spring is an exciting time to try new things. Whether it’s fun patterns in your living room, bright colors in your closet or fresh scents for your home, “new” is always the theme for spring. And speaking of scents, there’s no better way to explore new spring fragrances than with scented candles and diffusers.
Easy to experiment with, easy to gift and totally transformative, fragrances are just as much a reflection of your personality as they are a wonderful complement to your home. So what does your favorite spring scent say about you?
If you love lavender or are just plum-crazy for plumeria, floral scents say a lot about your connection to nature. Floral and herbal scents are a nod to your affinity for all things sweet, simple and subtle. Florals tend to be a favorite of those who favor serene color palettes, like creams, blushes and pale greens. So if you’re looking to overhaul your home decor, you might just find all the inspiration you need in a springy floral candle.
We find that passionate people tend to reach for food scents. Your favorite tangy grapefruit candle or subtle-but-savory avocado room spray speaks to your adventurous side, emphasizing your boldness and creativity. Cooking (and eating) is, after all, very much a sensory process, so a candle reminiscent of a tart citrus fruit or a warm shortbread cookie lights up much more than just your olfactory center. Food scents trigger memories and emotions unlike anything else, so they have the potential to make the most powerful impressions. Fans of food scents are those who value experiences over things, and who are always up for trying that new spot down the street.
Clean, straightforward scents are beloved by those who appreciate simplicity. These scents are never overwhelming and serve to enhance a room’s ambiance, like the soft music that accompanies a relaxing massage. People who prefer these scents appreciate detail and prefer to listen rather than speak. Simple doesn’t always mean boring, which is especially true for scents like rain fresh linens, and lemon. These scents — and their fans — are often the most energetic and inspiring of the bunch.
Classics are classics for a reason! Vanilla, cinnamon, lilac and sandalwood are just a few scents that have stood the test of time. If you reach for something in the classic category this spring, your signature scent is just an extension of your own classic style. These scents speak to your timeless style and affinity for antique decor and even vintage clothing. You embrace modern touches, but don’t apologize for your love of all things old school.
