If there’s an apt time of year to fill your world with fragrance, it’s fall. The season brims with heady scents that beg to be spritzed, burned, and shared with friends and family. Whether you’re lighting a candle, wearing a longtime favorite, or using an aromatic diffuser to fill the room, you’ll delight in these transformative notes that give your home the comforting feel you closely associate with autumn.
What’s the best way to make the most of these fall fragrances— besides merely using them as they’re meant to be? Consider pairing the coziest accents of home with the delightful fragrances that resonate best with the season. These harmonious partnerships will give your home the warmest, most inviting ambiance you’ve ever experienced!
Throw Blanket + Vanilla Candle
Although simple on its face, vanilla is a complex fragrance that triggers feelings of serenity, tranquility, and relaxation. These are the emotions your mind naturally recalls when you’re feeling nostalgic and longing for the happiest moments of your life. Vanilla is a reminder of comfort and softness — and those are naturally complementary traits for your favorite plush blanket. The combination of a heady scent reminiscent of baking combined with the tactile bliss of nurturing fabric is irresistible, especially when temperatures drop and all you want to do is relax by the fire or curl up on the couch with your loved one.
Delicious Dessert + Relaxing Diffusers
Think outside of the box when picking a fall fragrance. It’s likely the time of the year that you’re most likely to feel inspired enough to bake more than once or twice during the season. What’s your calling card during fall? For some, it’s snickerdoodle cookies. For others, it’s pumpkin pie. Channel your inner Julia Child as you bake up a storm in the kitchen, enjoying the scent of spices wafting through the air. Create balance by plugging a Dimensions diffuser from the Relaxing Collection into a nearby outlet. You’ll feel instantly at ease as you inhale the gentle blend of rosemary, clary sage, and chamomile.
Colorful Wreath + Brilliant Potpourri
The beauty of color brings autumn to life — and you’ll notice it the moment you step outside, whether you’re admiring the fallen leaves all over the yard or the rich spice hues that pepper your wardrobe. Add a few of those hues to your living space by brightening the door with a creative seasonal wreath. Select palettes that are right in line with the season, like sienna, maroon, hunter green, and mustard, and use them to bring your front door or any room in the home to life. Round out the nature-loving theme by placing a few bowls of delightfully scented potpourri around the house. It’s a great way to decorate a room before guests arrive.
Autumn Plates & Bright Bouquets
You don’t need to have company to break out the best china in the house. Take advantage of the season and enjoy your meals on those homey, beautifully designed dishes that you normally reserve for guests. Lay an autumnal tablecloth on the table and finish it with the ultimate brightening finishing touch: a bold bouquet that incorporates some of the season’s prettiest flowers. Placed in the center, flowers like Asiatic lilies and dahlias breathe new life to any room and make it easy to decorate your living space without much effort. Water them regularly to keep them fresh for as long as possible.
