There’s a special feeling we get when we walk into a 5-star hotel – luxury, freshness, and relaxation. Fortunately, you can also make your home smell like a hotel – not any hotel, the best there is. Check out the following sections to learn how to choose the right scent and how to enjoy a luxurious fragrance throughout your entire home.

1. Florals

Whether you opt for freshly cut flowers or a floral-scented candle, it is easy to understand why florals are on top of this list. You can go for rose, jasmine, lavender, or even lilies. Some hotels use a single flower to define their signature scent, so you can pick one you enjoy most. If you love flowers, you can also combine different scents to make your home smell like heaven!

2. Candles

Candles do not only disperse the fragrance throughout our entire home, but they also create a romantic, pleasant atmosphere. This may be the best choice if you want an option that does not require as much maintenance as flowers. You can buy them in bulk by opting for large scented candle packs. As long as you place them away from combustible materials and remember to put them off when you are not nearby, candles are an excellent choice.

3. Diffusers

Scented diffusers are even safer than candles and low maintenance. You can place them literally anywhere in your home, either by themselves or even in combination with flowers and candles. Electric diffusers are even more efficient, but you need to connect them to a power source and avoid overheating by turning them off periodically.

4. Citrus

Many luxurious hotels opt for citrus as their signature smell. You can choose lemons, oranges, or even limes thanks to their fragrance which is fresh, crisp, and strongly energizing. If you are not a fan of floral or sweet scents, citrus is a better, cleaner alternative.

5. Spices

Spices are not only a culinary staple. We can also use them to make our home smell like an exotic hotel, thanks to their complex fragrance. You can choose anything from cinnamon to marjoram – the choice is virtually endless.

6. Soap and Lotion

Many luxury hotels offer scented bath products. You can bring this vibe into your home by using scented soap or other care products. Make sure you avoid scented products if you are allergic to them or test them before use.

7. Wood

With a rich, heavy scent, woody notes are a must during winter or fall when floral fragrances do not seem appropriate. The best choices are sandalwood and cedarwood, ideal if your home has a rustic vibe. There are also other woody scents, so you can experiment and choose your favorite ones.

8. Potpourri

Potpourri refers to a combination of plants and spices in a pot. You can add your favorite herbs, fruits, and spices. If you have guests over, add all of your favorite scents in a pot with simmering water and enjoy all the compliments!
