Isn’t it amazing how a smell can tell you stories, emotions, and even places? People have discovered a way to express the season, the weather, a person, a color, a texture, all through the sense of smell. A spray of luxurious scents and you would already be in Italy, in the woods, in a rainforest or that you already smell like your favorite Hollywood actor.

To have a luxurious interior for your home is one thing, but to also have a scent that gives off an expensive ambience is another. The smell of your home plays a very big role on the kind of aura you want your home to give off. May it be bohemian, light and airy, warm and cozy, fun and vibrant, modern, or even minimalist; you may need to find that one specific scent that would finish off the look you are aiming for to portray.

Any luxury house in Brittany displays a spacious exterior and exudes an elegant interior that hits the right spot for business, fun, relaxation, and everything in between.

 

Living in a luxurious property development such as Brittany by Vista Land, aims to give you a comfortable yet sophisticated kind of community. With the name itself, Brittany, it already gives you the feel of luxury and an elegant vibe to it. From the entrance itself, a secured community with round the clock security, 24/7 roving patrols, and CCTV at all entry and exit points, its lush landscapes and green open spaces, amenities and services, lifestyle centers, thematic houses; it really gives you the feel of the high end and classy kind of lifestyle that deserves a luxurious scent that most people desire.

Even as you enter Hotel lobbies, high-end malls and stores, five star restaurants, or even museums, they always look and smell fancy. All these establishments have researched well to get their signature smell so their guests and customers can remember them even with their eyes closed. Most of them prioritize the fact of satisfying all five senses of the people who enter their zone. May it be for the taste of food, the background music, aesthetic interior, the humidity, and even the smell.

To complete off the experience, one should top it all off with a nice scent because what would be more satisfying than coming home to a house that is not only pleasing to the eyes, but also smells nice? Eyes closed, feet rested, a glass of red wine, some jazz music and a scented candle, after a long day of meetings at work.

It has almost become a necessity for interior designs to have a space for home fragrances with luxurious scents. Most people tend to complete the look of their living rooms, bedrooms, and even comfort rooms with these. A wooden tray for your center table with a diffuser, a vase with dried flowers, and a gem stone on top or maybe a small table beside your door with a key plate, minimalist bottles of alcohol and sanitizers, and a humidifier would be a good accent for your unit. If your goal is to get that luxe-scented atmosphere, here are the essentials you need to check off your list to elevate your home:

Luxurious Scents from Scented Candles

To give that dramatic lighting in your bathroom while soaking your body in the bathtub, or to just have something put in your open cabinet along with the picture frames, a scented candle is the way to go. A number of small businesses have been boosting up selling unique scents using raw soy wax and essential oils lately. Scents of wood, rain, flowers, and even freshly baked cookies are some of the scents you should consider if you are living in communities such as Brittany, to go along with its theme. Light up some “Kape candle” that you can score from the shop 23rd Street Candle Co., a small online business that sells scented candles, to get that coffee grounded smell while calmly staring outside your neighborhood from your window.

Incense

Lighting up an incense with luxurious scents, some says may also light up one’s mood and spirit. Imagine putting these up in beautiful jars or vases in the corner of your living room. You may go back to the traditional way of putting in aroma in a room by getting yourself these scented sticks. These give you the aesthetic, relaxing and maybe even religious vibe for your homes. There have been studies as well that it helps a person with their sleep and reduces stress. Incense stimulates concentration and meditation and is best for people who want to take a time off from the bustles and the buildings. It is also a must for people who enjoy yoga and other indoor exercises to stock up some incense sticks to help their minds concentrate whenever they engage their bodies into taxing physical activities.

Reed Diffusers and Luxurious Scents

A much needed aesthetic substitute for scented candles is Reed diffusers. People have been shifting to diffusers as this can add scent to your room without using electricity nor heat and flame. A single 150 ML reed diffuser can last up to 4 months with consistently giving you its scent 24/7. It also comes in classy bottles that would definitely fit your room and give off an elegant look for your side table or on your wall mounted shelf. If you want to make your living space smell like hotels and nature, the shop MindScent MNL is one of the best shops to check out. From Room and Linen sprays, Reed diffusers, and Oil for humidifiers, they have themed their scents with some of the most famous hotels in the Philippines such as Marriot, Conrad, Shangri-La, Peninsula Manila, Sofitel and Solaire and some other nature inspired aroma. Their goal is to sell luxury at an affordable price.

Room and Linen spray

We can’t avoid instances where unexpected guests may visit us for a Saturday brunch or an unwanted smell that has just spread off the whole house. It would be essential to get yourself some room and linen spray to freshen up your fabrics, curtains, and towels, also with big furnishings like sofas and carpets that are rarely cleaned compared to linens, before you use them. It gives you the same satisfaction and effect as diffusers and candles but in one single spray. It also allows you to have a lot more options as Linen sprays have wider varieties of aroma to choose from. It also works well in toilets and bathrooms as it helps eliminate foul smell. One of the most popular brands, The Body Shop, has multiple products for pillow mists like Spa Of The World French Lavender which best suits the vibe most Vista Land communities want to manifest.

Humidifier and Air purifiers give Luxurious Scents

While smelling good through candles and such may be a good idea, some people opt to use humidifiers and air purifiers. Humidifiers work as the device that can help you moisturize the air to help prevent dryness and other respiratory problems. This best fits your home located in Tagaytay Crosswinds as the weather may be inconsistent and sometimes may be dry if it’s the winter season. Also considering the Covid-19 risks, a relatively humid room can help combat the possibility of cold and flu symptoms which is beneficial for both adults and children. Humidifiers also give you the option whether if you want to use water scented or oil based essence in your device.

Not only that it helps as an aesthetic feature and that it adds scent to your homes, these can also now pass as a hobby. Adding the items mentioned to your cart may be a convenient of getting it but considering the new normal today brought by the COVID-19 pandemic and that most people have to stay at home, making your own scents and essentials such as soaps, oils, and candles is definitely an idea to keep you busy during your days off and leisure time.

BC Fragrance provides fragrances, essential oils and other materials for perfumery, personal care (soaps, hair care, skin care), and home care (home scents, candles, detergents, and fabric softeners) making. The company not only sells such products but is also open for online courses and webinars for people interested in making their own. This has been getting a lot of people’s attention now as it can be a good idea for a gift or a small business to venture on.

The olfactory sensations and visual satisfaction these give off would definitely turn and transform your room into something else. To look nice and fancy would be good but to also smell elegant would be the cherry on top. Living in a community that gives you the complete experience of peace and serenity like Brittany by Vista Land from the moment you enter the gates, with the scene of pine trees, green landscape, Southern-American thematic neighborhood then as you enter your doorstep, the lighting, the interior and the smell would really gives you the feel of “The good life”.
