Earlier this month, I posted about my habit of decorating for the different seasons. There's something else I change with the seasons and that's the scents I use in my home. My allergies make me sensitive to many scents which is why I don't wear cologne. However, there are a handful of aromas that don't create coughing jags and watery eyes and those I enjoy to the fullest.
My favorite summer scents are lemon and basil. For the past three or four months I've been indulging in the freshness of lemon air freshener, basil hand soap, a bowl of fresh lemons (lemonade anyone?), and a basil plant (Caprese salads for the win).
Now that we've moved into the crisp, cool mornings of autumn, it's time to change my condo's signature scent as well. In the kitchen/dining room/living room area it's all about apples. I have a bowl of apples on the counter, ready for daily snacking and maybe a pie or crisp or crumble...or two. To amplify the fresh apple aroma, I use Febreze air freshener in Fresh Spiced Apple and Mrs. Meyer's Apple Cider hand soap. In the bedrooms, it's all about Aromatique's Cinnamon Cider potpourri, probably my all-time favorite scent. It just makes me so happy!
So, tell me, do you have signature scents for each season?
If so, what's your scent for fall? Do you use it throughout the house?
