Fall is by far my favorite season; not only does the crisp refreshing air feel rejuvenating to my soul, but the decor and delicious fall fragrances put me in a calm, relaxed and happy mood.
I have come across my fair share of junk when it comes to harvesting the fragrance of fall into the home; however during my trial and error picks, I have also come across some really spectacular fall fragrances that will keep your home smelling like a fall wonderland all season long.
The first scent that is capable of flooding the home with it’s warm and spicy aroma is cinnamon. Now I am sure many of you have come across cinnamon scented pine cones before right? Many supermarkets and craft stores try selling you a bag of cinnamon saturated scented pine cones, and in the store they smell fantastic; but keep in mind that is only because there is an entire bin full of them, so the scent will naturally be strong in such numbers. Sadly, once you spend you $5.00 on a bag of them, when you get them home, their cinnamon scent is non-existent.
There is one thing you can buy though that will flood your home with this same exact high potent spicy cinnamon fragrance, and that is cinnamon dipped stick brooms. These brooms not only have a perfect high note of cinnamon to them, but the scent lasts, and the fact that it is a wooden stick broom, it also makes for a really cool looking Halloween decoration for the home. We hang 2 of them in our house every year, and usually come across them at local King Kullen supermarkets for under $6.00. These scented brooms are worth the price because they last, and last.
Candles are another way to add fall aroma into your home as well; while some work, others fail to pass the mark.
Yankee makes some delicious fall fragrances, but you have to be careful with Yankee, because these high priced candles sometimes fail to put out the fragrance as potently as others. Yankee Candles I have used, that have always managed to impress me are their candy corn fragrances, or warm spicy vanilla candles. Other candles like licorice just fail to put out a noticeable fragrance long enough, or strong enough.
For Every Body is another candle company that you definitely should check out, because this company makes fall scents that never fail to impress. No matter what fall fragrance you are looking to capture in your home, For Every Body will have you covered.
Next we have reed diffusers, and these suckers are so hit or miss. Yankee once again makes some marvelous reed diffusers, and it is rare to come across one by them that does not do a wonderful job of adding a fall flair to the home. Their apple scented reed diffusers usually are always impressive. Place one in a small room, and wait for the scent to disperse. The scent should last all month and some.
Finally we have wall plugs, and Glade makes some really mouth watering fall fragrances that you will enjoy. Besides Glade, you can pick up some really spectacular fall scented plugs at local Bath and Body Works stores. These plug ins always work marvelously, and they keep pumping out that fall fragrance all month long.
In order to really create a fall feeling in your home when it comes to fragrances, you will want to make sure you have some sort of scented product letting out scent in every room. Mixing fall scents creates a really nice mixture of fragrances that you, and visitors will enjoy. Adding a little fall atmosphere to your home with home decorations as well, will really go a long way.
