Fall is a time that carries with it several of the most common, yet potentially challenging, scents. The leaves are transforming, the days are getting shorter and more relaxed, and the smell of fall is in the air. But what type of fragrance should you use for your home this season?
There are so many wonderful fragrances to pick from, but it can be tough to decide which one is right for you. Aromatic enhancements like reed diffusers should be selected suitably.
- Pumpkin Spice – This scent is perfect for anyone who loves the warm, cozy feeling of autumn. It’s ideal for snuggling up with a good book or a cup of coffee on a chilly day.
- Apple Cider – This is another great scent for chilly days. It’s comforting and nostalgic, and it always makes you think of home.
- Cinnamon – Cinnamon is such a classic fall fragrance. It’s warm and spicy, and it always makes you feel festive.
- Vanilla – Vanilla is a timeless fragrance that always feels cozy and comforting. It’s perfect for chilly evenings spent indoors.
- Cedarwood – Cedarwood is a woodsy, earthy scent that reminds you of walks in the forest on crisp autumn days.
How to choose the fragrance
- Consider your lifestyle. Do you actively spend most of your time outdoors or indoors? You’ll want a lighter scent that won’t be too overwhelming if you’re mostly outdoors. You can go for a richer, more intense scent if you’re mostly indoors.
- Think about the scents you love. What notes do you typically go for? Floral? Fruity? Earthy? Woody? Knowing the types of scents you typically like will help narrow your options.
- Test out the fragrances. Apply a small quantity to your wrist and wait a few minutes to see how the scent develops. Please pay attention to how long the scent lasts and whether it changes over time.
Types of scents you can choose from
- Fruity scents: These types of reed diffusers carry a scent that is perfect for fall because they’re not too heavy but still pack a delicious punch. Think citrusy, juicy scents like grapefruit or pomegranate.
- Floral scents: Fall is a great time to wear floral fragrances because they’re not as overwhelming as they can be in spring and summer. Choose light, delicate floral scents like lavender or rose.
- Woody scents: These earthy scents are perfect for crisp autumn days. They’ll give you a warm, cozy feeling while still keeping you smelling fresh. Try cedarwood or sandalwood for a classic woody fragrance.
- Spicy scents: Add a little heat to your fall fragrance with a spicy scent like cinnamon or clove. These spices will also help keep you warm on chilly evenings.
