The calming home fragrances that’ll leave your space smelling serene


We’re feeling a whole lot of things during this era of social distancing, but an overall sense of calm certainly isn’t one of them.

One perk of staying indoors though, is that you have full control over how your space smells – and we’ll bet it’s filled with fragrances a whole lot more pleasant than the train station.

Want to whip up some banana bread or fill your living room with lavender to get the cosy aromas going? We support that. Want to cheat the system by lighting a candle, spritzing a room spray or setting up a diffuser instead? We support that even more.

So if you’re searching for scents to soothe your senses during this stressful time, we’ve rounded up the calming home fragrances bound to get your home smelling serene.
