Home Scents

At LA Skincare, we know home scents are so important.

We are always looking out for ways to make homes better and more beautiful.

At LA Skincare, we are always trying to make new things that we think you will love…

Why smell is important…

Smell has the ability to have such a strong an effect on our experiences.  The reason for this is because it is processed in the Olfactory cortex of the brain’s limbic system.

This part of the brain is close to the area in which emotions, memories, and feelings are stored.

To put it simply, scents trigger emotional reactions.  It is said the first time we experience a particular scent, we associate it with something.  That could be events, people, and emotions of the time.

So, when entering a scented room, two things may happen.  If the smell is familiar, old memories will be evoked, possibly offering a sense of nostalgia.  If the smell is completely new, then new memories will be created.

Effect on your mood

It has been proven through a number of studies that fragrance has an effect on a person’s mood.

When people smell a pleasant fragrance, it has a positive effects on their mood.

Deciding On Scents For Different Spaces

When you are choosing which home fragrances to use consider how it will harmonise with its surroundings.

In the same way, each piece of furniture is chosen to match and fit, scents should be incorporated with already existing home fragrances in mind.

Every smell, from cleaning products to pets and children, should be considered. You will want to avoid including a scent so strong that it monopolises the entire room.

However, you will also want to avoid the exact opposite, too.

A few ideas

Fresh and clean fragrances best complement kitchen spaces.  Where as soothing, warm scents can be beautifully incorporated in the bedroom to create a relaxing ambiance.

Heady florals find a good home in any powder room, as small spaces can be nicely treated to fresh scents.

Clean fragrances are the most desired choice for living rooms.

So many options

With LA Skincare we have tried to create so many different ways to scent your home…

From reed diffusers and electric, to candles, to simmering granules we have tried to cover it all.

Have a look for yourself…

Much love.
