Every homeowner has dealt with household odors at one point or another. Perhaps, the distinctive scent of last night’s dinner still hangs in the air. Maybe someone accidentally spilled wine on the carpet a few days ago, or you might have forgotten to take the trash out on schedule. Cleaning up and eliminating the source of a foul odor is absolutely necessary, but don’t forget the next equally important step — getting rid of any lingering smell afterward. Fortunately, there are many ways to scent your luxury home with diffuser blends. Some prefer lighting up aromatic candles while others count on plug-in air fresheners or sprays. But if you want a natural alternative to keep your space fragrant, using some diffuser blends is the way to go.

Diffuser blends are unique combinations of pure essential oils you can diffuse to fill your luxury house with soothing scents.
Unlike commercial air fresheners that potentially emit hazardous chemicals, essential oils are extracted from flowers, fruit peels, and herbs, among others, which make them safer for your health and the environment as well. Diffusing essential oils is fun and easy too. Simply fill a diffuser with distilled water, add a few drops of your favorite diffuser blends, and you’ll be on your way to creating a fragrant and blissful home. And even if you are not dealing with household odors, keeping your luxury house fragrant is still necessary to improve your overall wellness and the quality of your home life. A fragrant living space can help you relax, rest, focus, and sleep better. In short, it’s one of the small luxuries in life.
You can purchase read-made diffuser blends at your local health food store or create your recipe. If you choose the latter route, here’s how you can start.
Picking Your Essential Oils For Your Diffuser Blends
Making your own diffuser blends is a great way to customize the scent you want for every corner of your luxury house. The big question is: what essential oils should you include on your personal concoction?
A great rule of thumb for beginners is to start with your favorite scent. Do you prefer the clean aroma of citrus fruits? Then, begin with a bottle of wild orange or lemon essential oil. If you are into floral notes, lavender, jasmine, or rose essential oil are excellent choices. And for those who prefer the refreshing aroma of natural herbs, the go-to options are peppermint or pine essential oils.
People residing in luxury homes in Tagaytay would know how refreshing the pine scent is. The suburban paradise of Tagaytay takes pride in its pine sanctuaries that fill the air with invigorating aroma from sunup to sundown. The Grand Quartier at Crosswinds Tagaytay for instance is the best place to enjoy nature and all the olfactory feasts that it brings. Brittany homes in this area are surrounded by over 35,000 homegrown pine trees that take luxury living in nature to incredible heights.
Keep in mind that the above-mentioned essential oils are only a few of the many great picks you can use in making your diffuser blends. Don’t feel restricted—there is a whole world of essential oils out there. Be free to explore your options and get creative in finding your mix and matches.

Keep in mind that there is no right or wrong in creating a scent that suits your aroma preference. But if you are a beginner in blending essential oils, you can use the list above as your easy guide and inspiration.
Creating Diffuser Blends to Freshen Up Main Areas of Your Luxury Home
All areas in your luxury condominium unit, luxury house, or luxury mansion, serve a rightful purpose—and sometimes, even multiple purposes. Regardless, finding the right scent for each will definitely transform the way you utilize your space and take your luxury living experience to new heights.
Some friendly reminders: choose an essential oil diffuser that blends well with your interior design and home décors. Functionality doesn’t have to sacrifice your style. Also, place your diffuser in the center of the room and on a solid surface just below eye level. Think of: kitchen counters, nightstands, or center tables. Doing so will help spread fragrance far and wide in every corner of your room.
Here are some of the best diffuser blends you can explore to enhance and make the most out of each area in your home:
For Your Welcoming Mudroom or Entryway

Your mudroom is the front and center of your luxury house. This area welcomes everyone who enters your abode, so keeping it in polished and aromatic conditions should be non-negotiable. That being said, diffusing an inviting scent is a great way to greet people as they come and go. Make a great first impression on every guest by combining the sweet and cheerful scents of wild orange essential oil and bergamot. Toss in a few drops of woodsy juniper berry to balance everything out. With this blend’s uplifting aroma, everyone will feel your warm greetings and hospitality the moment they step into your luxury house.
For Your Relaxing Living Room
The living room is another area of your luxury house that is always bustling with life and activities. As the typical hot spot for home entertainment, it is a place for chitchats, relaxation, and leisure whether you are alone or with the company of your friends and family. Elevate your experience by creating a bright and joyful atmosphere in your living space. Your go-to blend: diffuse wild orange and peppermint essential oils or go for rosemary, peppermint, and lemon essential oils. If you prefer to have a more relaxed and calming vibe, try the soothing mix of cedarwood, ylang-ylang, and peppermint diffuser blends.
For Your Cozy Bedroom

Sometimes, you just want to relax and cozy up in your bedroom after a long, tiring day. Your bedroom should be your safe place for rest and recuperation, after all. Think of the aromatic blends that fill up your senses when you are lounging on your favorite spas, hotels, or luxury resorts like Crosswinds Tagaytay by Brittany. To capture this vibe, set up the relaxing mood in your room by diffusing lavender oil, chamomile, and frankincense. This trio prompts sedative action to your central nervous system to quiet your mind and reduce any stress-related tension or anxiety in your system. As a result, you can sleep better and wake up in a more invigorated state. Turns out, the heavenly scent in your room is just a bonus!
For Your Fresh-Smelling Kitchen & Dining Area
The kitchen and dining area is where the sumptuous scent of good food is, especially when you are whipping up aromatic dishes like Saffron Risotto or quiche and cheese tarts. However, these parts of the house are also where gunk and unwanted odors typically build up. So on top of keeping things clean in here, diffusing essential oils for fragrance also helps.
An excellent pick to keep your kitchen smell refreshing is the subtle citrus aroma of lemon essential oils. Toss in a few drops of fresh-scented mint essential oil and grapefruit essential oil to achieve that squeaky-clean aroma that softly hangs in the air. You don’t want an overpowering scent for your diffuser blends as this might spoil your dining experience.
For Your Nose-Friendly Home Office Space

The Coronavirus pandemic made remote work a new normal in the workforce landscape. Because of this, homeowners have a newfound purpose in their living spaces by creating their own working areas.

Rosa, for instance, is a great space for work, life, and play as this Brittany home offers a flexible 20-hectare space.
Needless to say, your home office is an important space in your luxury house— and you want to make it as work-friendly as possible.
