You already have a well-decorated space that you love coming home to, but don’t forget to pick up a home scent that will add more character to your nest.

“Scents can change the mood and energy in a room,” says interior designer Tala Singson. “Kasi we experience a space with all of our senses, including our sense of smell. Scents can dictate how we experience a space,” she elaborates. But don’t just pick out anything you see on the shelf. It’s important to consider your taste and the look of the room you want to place that scent in.
