Holiday 2009: decorating your home with fragrance
17
Nov '09
We've cocooned and vegged out. We've tried the couch potato method. We've "staycationed" instead of vacationing. We've turned the humble barbecue into a gourmet, built-in outdoor kitchen. The message from all of this? Home is where the heart is and this holiday season, home is the place to be.

When it comes to holiday decor, think out of the tinsel-and-ornaments box with a whole different approach to decorating your home for the holidays. What could be more "scentsational" and creative than decorating each room of your house with a different fragrance that sets a holiday mood? According to The Fragrance Foundation, nothing could be more enjoyable, simple, or, in today's budget-conscious mode, affordable. "A scented candle or room spray can instantly transform a room or create a mood," explains Rochelle Bloom, President of The Fragrance Foundation. "Forget the old-style sixties joss- sticks or those bad-odor concealing sprays. Today's home fragrances come in many forms and an infinite variety of scents."

Room by Room Decorating with Fragrance:

• Hang lots of small wreaths on the doors, entrance and hallway. Pine or eucalyptus scents, studded with apples and lemons, mix and mingle to welcome friends and family with a green, alpine scent.
• The Family Room doesn't have to smell like an locker room! Reed Diffusers emitting a gentle aroma of clean spring rain will please everyone.
• The Bedroom. Everything looks better by candlelight! Scented candles are so romantic. Coordinate with linen sprays and drawer liners to create a haven for grown-ups.
• Turn the bathroom into a spa room. Essential oils, fragrance warmers, soft towels and lots of bubble bath. Rest, relax and enjoy as the scents float you far, far away.
• Kid's rooms. Melon scented room sprays will keep them happy and in a sunny mood.
• Kitchen. While all the great cooking and baking smells don't need adding to, keep a tube of hand cream near to soften up hands after the cleaning, scraping and dishwashing.

Here are some classic and some unusual scents that can be found in all sorts of home fragrance products: apple, grapefruit, mocha, strudel, lavender, wisteria, green tea, vanilla, patchouli, eucalyptus, sandalwood, jasmine, mint, sage, ginger, melon, rose.

So don't fret at over-decking the halls ... a candle here, a spray there is all you need this holiday season.
