Scented candles and fragrances
Two senses are activated every time we enter a house for the first time. The first, and most obvious, is the view. If we have a taste for aesthetics, our eyes will focus on all the details, seeking harmony between shapes and colors and discovering new ideas for decorating and arranging objects.
The second sense, which we give less value to but plays a very important role in that first impression is the smell. There are people who have it more developed and, for them, it is very likely that the smells given off by each of the rooms in a home will leave a mark in their memory. Here we bring you some tricks to make it as pleasant as possible for your guests.
A fundamental aspect is the products that are used to clean the kitchen, living room and bedrooms, but especially, the clothes. Yes, although it may seem untrue, choosing a good laundry soap can greatly affect the smell of our house.
Ventilate the house every morning by opening all the windows for a minimum of 20 minutes
Another tip to ensure a pleasant environment is to ventilate the house every day. Closed and damp odors are very annoying and difficult to remove. That is why there is no better remedy than to ventilate the house every morning by opening all the windows for a minimum of 20 minutes and letting the wind generated carry bad odors with them.
We can also include fragrances that provide a specific smell to each room. The first and most natural are the plants. Some, such as jasmine or basil, can intensely aromatize a room, but we must bear in mind that they require care to maintain them and, if we do not guarantee the conditions it needs, they have a very limited duration.
A large aromatic candle in the living room or hall, which we can light half an hour before their arrival so that the smell permeates the entire room
The second option is aromatic candles and reed diffusers. We have decided to opt for the latter, which, chosen with good taste, are the ideal product when we have guests at home: A large aromatic candle in the living room or hall, which we can light half an hour before their arrival so that the smell penetrates throughout the room, and a reed diffuser or small candle in the bathrooms that we will also have opened previously.
In this way, when guests enter our house, they will perceive that smell that we have already defined and the one that we have chosen to receive them and make the evening ahead comfortable and pleasant. Because it's not enough to have a house like a magazine... Who knew that smells would play such an important role in making our house a home!
