Have you been here yet?, scamper off but then come right back...
Divine, is it not? such a devotion to home and how it feels.... I could just read this sort of stuff all day...and even beter she is having a wee bit of a contest!.. For the contest I chose this *puttery treat*
Subtly change the signature scent your house wears to something a little less fresh than that you chose in the summer. Add amber, musk, orange, eucalyptus, pine, cinnamon or other spices to your base fragrance (mines lavender and I use amber, musk and cinnamon) to gently mark the change of season. Bake thin slices of fruit for hours at a time to fragrance the house for a special occasion, or burn incense for the sheer smoky scent of it.
It really was the best of timing since I had just pulled out one of my favorite Fall/Winter home scents. Claire Burke Original home scent , how to describe.... it's how everything Fall should smell when I conjure up *home* in my mind. I really enjoy the timeless scent of roses, lavender and spice blended with patchouli and vetiver. Heck I don't even know what vetiver is but ..it's really working in this combination.
I think that BrocanteHome is right on the money when she suggests that a home should have different scents for different seasons. Of course no scent can be above that of a clean home, but past clean is the feeling that a warm glowing scent gives a home. So while I might not be able to bake bread all day everyday and the dog ate the lavender sachets that I hid under the sofa cushions. I can count on this little bit of oil on a light ring to bring a soothing touch to my home during these colder months.
