Sick of smelling the socks at the bottom of your hamper?
Dying to ditch the stale and stuffy? Liven up your room with a barely there
scent that’ll keep your sniffer oh-so satisfied.
Light ‘em up!
We heart candles, big and small. Snag a few votives and
holders to scatter along your dresser, or pillars to decorate—and
illuminate—your desk. Pick your pile o’ wax ‘n’ wicks carefully, though, babe.
Some candles are much more fragrant—and potentially irritating to those with
allergies—than others. For particularly strong scents, consider keeping them handy...and unlit.
For a vintage vibe, you can’t beat a pretty bowl piled high
with dried herbs, flowers and spices. For autumn, we’re loving warm
scents—cinnamon, vanilla, apples and oranges, cloves and nutmeg…mmm! When the
holidays roll around, try festive notes of peppermint and pine. And for
everyday, choose your year-round faves. Check out our fall potpourri DIY, or pick up a pack at a home goods store near you.
Grab the Febreze
Looking for a quick, bottled fix? Head to Walmart or Target
and take your pick of Febreze’s line of air effects. A quick spritz will leave
your laundry (and the rest of your boudoir) smelling fresh and clean. For a
dose of fab fall smells, try their so-sweet seasonal lines. Heaven!
Cinnamon stick savvy
Not big on potpourri and not allowed to light up candles?
Grab a small drinking glass or mason jar and head to the grocery store for a
package of cinnamon sticks. Toss a few in and enjoy.
When the temps drop, it’s tough to get out of bed and push
through your morning. We get it—that’s why we’re digging sachets. Make up some
DIY potpourri or purchase some at a crafts store, sew up and fill a pouch, then
drop into your drawers. When you pull them open to pick an outfit for school,
you’ll be hit by a feel-good wave of your favorite scents. Mmm…
