5 Fresh Scents Perfect For The Bathroom

Turn your T&B into a personal spa with these fragrances


From picking out candles to blending fragrance notes, keeping your bathroom smelling crisp may seem grueling. No need to worry, we're here to help—if you want a bathroom that smells as good as it looks, check out these scent suggestions:

1. Citrus

Popular for its re-energizing properties, notes of cirtus are dubbed as a "happy scent" in the world of fragrances. Aside from adding a zesty touch to your T&B, it can also bring warmth and remind people of summertime. 

2. Floral

A floral-scented candle is powerful enough to conceal the harshest of odors—making it a great choice for the bathroom. However, it isn't everyone's cup of tea—as an alternative, you can use something more subtle, like potpourri, to get similar results without hurting sensitive noses.

3. Mint 

If you want an ambience that is simple and refreshing, mint is your best choice. It only smells slightly sweet, so it is not at all overpowering or will it saturate other parts of the home in case the scent seeps out. 

4. Pine 

The scent of pine is often associated with cleaning and bleaching products for a reason—it gives a clean and crisp vibe like no other. If you want to create an atmosphere of fresh hair, pine is the way to go.

5. Teakwood 

For a scent that is truly one-of-a-kind, Teakwood is your best bet. It is musky, bold, and complex with notes of leather, tobacco, and amber. These overtones are perfect for more masculine spaces such as the master bath of a bachelor pad.
