Decorate your home with Scent
Fragrance has the ability to transform a space, alter a mood and rekindle memories. An often-overlooked element, scent can make a major impact on the ambience of your home. Using a special scent for each room allows you to give each space a distinct personality. From your bedroom to kitchen, here are our top picks to add charm to your home:
Entrance: Leave the chaos of the world behind as you enter your private sanctuary. The entrance of your home should be inviting and uplifting. Luminous, an intoxicating blend of white violet flowers, soft musk and sandalwood are sure to leave a good first impression.
Bedroom: Create a soothing environment with a serene and intimate scent for your bedroom. Scents like jasmine, lavender and ylang-ylang are natural aphrodisiacs and promote relaxation. A little sexy yet subtle, Honeysuckle Jasmine is the perfect scent for your bedroom. This intimate scent is sure to promote relaxation and restful sleep.
Bathroom: Use clean and refreshing scents that can help transform your space into a spa. Avoid heavy smells that will overwhelm the space. Cool Fresh, an infusion of lime, white peony, vanilla and mahogany will blend effortlessly into your space, conjuring a crisp and clean feeling.
Living Room: For your living room, select scents that you would enjoy being around for long periods of time. Set candles tableside for ambient, soft-focus lighting – perfect for entertaining. If you’re hosting a party, choose a lively fragrance that will get noticed. Zeal, a blend of orange, mandarin, neroli, musk and tonka bean, an instant mood enhancer, is sure to encourage guests to mingle.
Kitchen: For days when your kitchen isn’t smelling of baked goods, used a spicy or citrus scent to eliminate strong aromas. SMODOR, a fusion of orange, grapefruit and cinnamon is an invigorating spicy citrus fragrance for your kitchen.
Study: Improve concentration and fight mental fatigue with stimulating cinnamon. Perfect for your study, invigorate your mind with Red Spice, an old-time favourite of cinnamon with undertones of clove and nutmeg.
Dining Room: Don’t compete with the food! For your dining room, opt for herbaceous or citrus-based scents that complement the food aroma. Grapefruit & Mangosteen, Mandarin Lime and Lemon Verbena are great scents to neutralize stubborn cooking scents and set the mood for entertaining.
Guest Bathroom: No more embarrassing smells or cleaning up after your guests at a dinner party! Perfume, our, our Before & After Toilet Spray, is a must-have for all bathrooms. A blend of citrus, musk and sandalwood creates a shield and blocks any unpleasant odour.
Closet: Designed for use in small spaces, our scented sachets are ideal to gently perfume your closet. Hang the sachet in your closet or slip into drawers to keep your clothes smelling fresh.
Use a mix of methods: From candles, reed diffusers, room sprays, and sachets, there are different ways to make your home smell amazing. Candles are best suited for intimate moments and for entertaining. Diffusers work effortlessly and continuously in small spaces to create an enveloping scent. For a quick burst of instant scent, use room sprays – these work well on linen and bedsheets. Use sachets to perfume your personal belonging; closets, lingerie, linen, gym bags, even shoes!
Scent according to the season: In the summer, use light and fresh fragrances. Choose energizing citrus-based aromas that will boost your energy.
A conscious burn
Light up your home with luxurious eco-friendly scented candles
Candles have the ability to transform a space, alter a mood and rekindle memories. The simple act of lighting a candle and watching the flame flicker is a reminder to breathe, pause, and unwind. Hypnotic and uplifting, while any flame is mesmerising, all candles are not made equal. Mainstream candles are often made using paraffin wax, derived from a petroleum by-product. The most well-known alternative is soy wax, derived from soybean, which is biodegradable and non-toxic.
Fuelled by a love for fragrance, an intense desire to create handcrafted products, and a commitment to provide sustainable alternatives in the home fragrance space, Niana was launched in 2011 by Leena Labroo. One of the first homegrown luxury candle brands in India, Niana uses 100% natural soy wax and cotton wicks for its candles, and sources the finest ingredients globally. Niana’s philosophy focuses on its key ingredient – soy – which is eco-friendly, burns cleaner, emits less soot, and lasts longer than paraffin.
What kicked off as a range of scented soy candles has expanded to reed diffusers, room sprays, and sachets. Each luxuriously textured product is finely finished by hand. Known for its unique fragrance portfolio, Niana aromas are subtle, evocative, and eclectic. Niana seeks to awaken your senses, to bring to your life and home, a deep sense of joy, serenity and illumination.
