Creating Unique Scents For The Home

091609eucalyptus-01.jpgWe love it when our friends stop by to join us for an evening in. Often times its super last minute, leaving us little time to worry about adding a signature scent to enhance the evening...

We've always envied the unique scents of friends' homes, so we embarked on a quest to create our own. We learned that by picking up a bouquet of eucalytpus and storing it in a classic white vase, we can bring the warm scent of the outdoors into our living room. Baking a batch of cookies is another way to ensure a cozy vibe (and it makes the entire house smell like we've been baking all day). Additionally, a few orange rinds and cinnamon sticks tossed into a pot with water had us recalling memories of fall and good times. Because our space is small, even something as simple as dryer sheet thrown in with a load of laundry brings a fresh and clean scent into the space that will instantly make it feel like home.

Apartment therapy readers, how do you add your own signature scent to your home when under a time crunch?
