What is scent scaping?

Scent scaping is the art of using home fragrances to create different areas in your home. This is achieved by fragrance zoning, which is simply, dividing your home into zones and creating a scent profile for that space. Over the past few years our homes have merged into a place for working, relaxation and entertaining, Using scent scaping can help to separate areas for specific atmospheres and enhance your wellbeing.

So what are the benefits of scent scaping?

Using home fragrances can have a powerful effect on your mood depending on how you would like to feel at any time. Scent scaping help you switch more easily between work, relaxation or entertaining mode. Specific fragrances can have a calming effect whilst others can uplift and energise you. This allows you to scent the space accordingly, and create the specific ambience you desire for that room or area of your home. Creating a uplifting ambience in the area you work can increase your productivity, once you leave that area and enter another it can create a more calm and relaxing atmosphere allowing you to switch off for the day.

Uplifting scents and fragrance for focus. I'd recommend Rosemary which is popular for mental focus and to increase alertness. Other uplifting fragrances include citruses, ginger, lemongrass and mint.

If you're looking for a scent to help you unwind then vanilla is a popular choice as well as sandalwood and amber.

Want to feel refreshed then opt for clean fragrances. Citrus, pine and eucalyptus work well as do sea salt and herbal scents.
