Complement your beautifully designed home with fragrances that take your living space to new heights.

When it comes to elevating your living space, small details play a huge role in taking your home to the next level, even intangible ones like scents and fragrances. Aside from triggering fond memories and images, home fragrances also work amazingly to provide an all-rounded home experience. 

But how do you choose the right fragrance? While one option is to go with what makes you feel good, why not take it a step further by pairing it with your home’s design style? 

Whether your home leans towards minimalism with thoughtful colours and furniture or a cosy rustic style with vintage elements, there’s a fragrance that can make your house feel like a home. To help you choose, here’s a guide that explores the perfect scent based on your interior design style:

1. Modern

Often consisting of refined elements and decor, a modern interior design style features clean lines, open spaces and a focus on functionality. Incorporating large windows and minimal clutter, it’s often complemented with a neutral colour palette and bold accent pieces. 

Our Pick: ENCENS 9 Concrete Candle by Le Labo

If you find your home embracing this design style, Le Labo’s ENCENS 9 Concrete Candle is perfect for it. With its sophisticated blend of incense, patchouli, and clove, the scent infuses warmth and depth into modern spaces without overwhelming them. Not only does it complement the sleek and refined aesthetic, but it also creates a calming atmosphere that’s perfect for relaxation. 

2. Minimalist

With a “less-is-more” approach, minimalism emphasises simplicity, functionality and the use of a limited colour palette. Focusing on serene and uncluttered spaces, think white walls, simple furniture, and just the right amount of thoughtful decor items.

Our Pick: Cythera Aromatique Room Spray by Aesop

The Cythera Aromatique Room Spray from Aesop is great for elevating serene minimalist spaces. Providing crisp citrus, spicy and woody notes with its blend of geranium, incense, and patchouli, the fragrance calms and balances the ambience of minimalist homes with its refreshing aroma.

3. Contemporary

Contemporary design blends current styles with timeless elements, often featuring clean lines, neutral colours, and a mix of textures and materials. Picture a modern, unique and trendy space with a mix of elements like metal, glass, and wood.

Our Pick: Wood Sage & Sea Salt Home Candle by Jo Malone

This Jo Malone fragrance provides a twist for contemporary homes. Bringing to mind fresh coastal scenes in Britain, this candle fills spaces with a balance of earthiness. Thanks to its mineral scent of sea salt and the warmth of sage, contemporary-styled homes are elevated with a calming and rejuvenating ambience when paired together. 

4. Asian

Drawing inspiration from traditional aesthetics in Asia, this design style showcases natural elements such as rattan or stone materials. Additionally, simplistic furniture is thoughtfully placed for a balanced and harmonious home.

Our Pick: Santal/Sandalwood Candle By Diptyque

This candle by Diptyque perfectly embodies the air of tropical jungles, just like in Malaysia. With its rich woody notes, the fragrant sandalwood aroma fills Asian-styled homes with an air of tranquillity while sparking a connection with nature.

5. Rustic

Cosy and welcoming, a rustic home design infuses natural materials and a warm colour palette. With wooden beams and vintage decor, they often feature inviting spaces such as a large living room or kitchen.

Our Pick: Une Maison de Campagne Diffuser by Goutal

Paired with this Goutal diffuser, homeowners in rustic homes are transported to lush countryside gardens in the West, filled with scents of blackcurrants, redberries and roses. With its fruity and floral notes, the scent instantly provides a comforting feel, making any dweller feel right at home.

By thoughtfully pairing home fragrances with your interior design style, you can create a cohesive and personalised environment. Plus, they enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home while creating a sense of comfort and familiarity, turning your space into a sanctuary. Over time, these fragrances become signature scents that will always remind you of your beautifully designed home and the memories that come with it.
