We're entering that last stretch of winter in Chicago where we start to convince ourselves that spring is just around the corner even though we know by experience that it's more than a few weeks away. To sustain the illusion, we're looking into spring scents for the home. More below.
Top: These soy-based Kobe Candles
from Sprout Home
are clean-burning and good for air quality, unlike petroleum-based candles. They're pricey at $33 each, but they last for a long
time and the scent fills the whole room.
We always like the selection of scents at Greer. Right now, we're digging the Mor Cosmetics Fruits of Cornucopia Room Mist ($22), Snow and Graham's Trellis Candle with floral and herbal scents ($23.50), and the Savon de Marseilles Mini Soaps ($1.50 each).
Use lavender sachets in your drawers to keep clothes smelling good. We like the selection of sachet pillows from Etsy Shop lfntextiles (the pillow shown is $18). Or you can make your own with these instructions from Martha Stewart.
Mrs. Meyers has a new limited-edition scent for spring: Rhubarb. A Rhubarb Spring Cleaning Kit contains dish soap, countertop spray, all-purpose cleaner, and window spray for $14.99.
