Scent - Our most primal and instinctive sense

Smell is perhaps the most underrated of our five senses, although research is rapidly changing this perception. Recent studies have found we recall 35% of what we smell but only 5 percent of what we see, 2 percent of what we hear and 1 percent of what we touch. (Financial Review 26-28 April 2013).

Can’t we all recall the scent of Mum’s baking? Freshly cut grass or the coffee aroma in the morning?

Smells put us at ease, wake us up, help us relax and one of the easiest ways to introduce this into your home is through candles and diffusers. Now with the introduction of these you can make your home a more memorable and relaxing experience.

A diffuser will last weeks, requires no maintenance and will fill your home. A candle can burn for up to 80 hours and is a welcoming site for family and friends when they walk through the door. With winter approaching it’s an easy way to cosy your home.
