Have your fragrance interests expanded more into home scents this year?

I bought an AromaTech earlier this year because I love the idea of scenting my home but don’t like a lot of typical ways to do it (plug-ins, burning candles, melting waxes, sprays, etc.). It’s a nebulizing diffuser, which is a type I only learned about this year. I’ve actually been really pleased with it overall and find it does what I need (perfumes most of the house subtly and routinely without running hot!).

I’ve always liked my home to smell nice but I’m not a fan of candles (a bit risky, can’t be left unattended and not very effective) or chemical sprays and plug ins. For years now, I’ve had diffusers from Saje, a Canadian company that makes an assortment of diffusers, absolutely wonderful diffuser blends and single note essential oils as well as more natural home care and skin/body care products. We also have humidifiers (a must have once the heat goes on) that have slots in them to hold blotter type pads for essential oils which also add to a nice light scent. I was just at the store yesterday purchasing a diffuser for a friend of mine for Xmas.

It has. Definitely better about keeping my diffusers up to snuff. About to add Feliway plugin to the mix since my last remaining kitty has been in a state of deep mourning for her “partner”. So cat pherimones are on the menu? Plus, I need to find something more soothing and relaxing than lavender for my own use. I’m really not sleeping well the past two weeks.

Not in terms of purchases, but we’ve come to appreciate some cooking smells more. My partner made ginger infused simple syrup a couple night ago and our apartment has never smelled more wonderful. ☺️

I am a big candle fan, niche brands usually.
Currently liking Boy Smells brand.

Oh, a friend’s husband is a fireman and refuses to let any of the family use plugins. More fires are caused by them than candles etc it seems.

oh yes. I have become addicted to Bath & Body Works candles of all things. I’ve gone through four Fresh Balsam candles in six weeks! I buy them on sale so they’re a good deal and they burn for a long time. Honorable mentions go to Flannel and Lakeside Morning!

I’ve always been a lot more into candles than perfumes or body sprays. Even if I really like the smell of a perfume, I get tired of smelling the scent on myself after a while. If I get tired of the smell of a particular candle I can just blow it out and burn another one.

For me it’s exactly the opposite. I find scent distracting, and with me working from home it’s even more important to have clean air and my home smell like… nothing.

I like the *idea* of home fragrance, but the reality is that they don’t seem to be good for cats’ health, and one of mine already has crappy lungs as it is lol. And the other human who lives here doesn’t tend to like “perfume” (i.e. smells that are not food or natural body odor).

I would love to have home scents around my place – diffusers preferably (no candles due to all the little ones here). Bur my husband is an asthmatic and gets hay fever, so nope.

I love good quality home frargrance and have both reed diffusers and candles. My problem is that I tend to knock the diffusers over and the liquid strips the finish off the wood. I am terrified of fires and won’t even leave the room with a candle burning so I have to rely on the scent in the wax.
I looked up AromaTech that you mentioned Christine. Sounds like an interesting product. May I ask which one you have?
As someone commented, I to have heard that the plug-in scents from the grocery and hardware do cause fires and I have avoided them.
I’ve been in 2 fires and cared for patients with non-survivable burns.
