Scented Diffusers and Candles

For the Contemporary Modern Home

A sleek, contemporary modern home needs a clean and minimal scent to match. Fresh citrus notes should be your go to. Alternatively, minimalists may want to consider a scent which adds warmth and coziness to their space.

If spicy warm scents are your thing, look no further than this ‘Curiosity Corner’ reed diffuser from Crabtree & Evelyn.

A fusion of warm leather and intense smoky notes combined with earthy cedarwood and amyris is the ideal pairing for a modern minimalist home design.

Lime Basil & Mandarin Scented Candle

A bright wash of green citrus lime and zesty mandarins is just the thing for a contemporary home setting.

These lovely ‘hand poured to order’ candles by Love Thy Light will infuse your space with energy. What I love the most about these handmade beauties is that they are made from 100% natural soybean wax. Their chic glass casings are not to be sniffed at either (pun intended)!

For the Scandinavian Hygge Home

The whole point of a hygge setting is to bring back a sense of familiarity and belonging. It’s about stripping back the unnecessary and going back to basics. For me, that’s captured perfectly in natural floral scents.

HEIA Ceramic Scented Candle

Heia means ‘heathland’ in Norwegian, and I can’t think of a better name to capture the spirit of this heather, thyme and bearberry infused fragrance.

This candle from the Scandinavian-based SKANDINAVISK is inspired by the high altitude terrains and fragrant hills of Norway and Sweden. Overall, when matched with a hygge-inspired room, it casts a feeling of faraway wilderness. How dreamy!

Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser 

Hygge coziness abounds with this Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser from MUJI. Need help sleeping at night? Its ultrasonic waves will fill your room with a soothing jasmine and chamomile fragrance mist, guaranteeing a good night’s sleep.

For the Industrial Loft

A raw industrial aesthetic needs a gritty fragrance to match. Consider experimenting with unusual scents to give your space an urban edge.

Cuban Tobacco and Oak Reed Diffuser

Willow and Honey’s Cuban Tobacco and Oak Reed Diffuser offers a unique spicy scent with a touch of earthiness.

The masculine hint of cognac and sweet tobacco is the scented embodiment of exposed brick and unfinished woods. Meanwhile, a warm oak base introduces cozy warmth to the mix.

Teakwood and Tobacco Candle

For a spicier take on the tobacco scent, this candle by P.F. Candle Co. adds in notes of pepper.

A base of teak and sandalwood mixed with a hint of orange and patchouli lends this candle universal appeal, regardless of your typical fragrance preferences.  Housed in an apothecary-inspired amber jar, this would be a great finishing touch to a loft-style interior.
