After KonMari-ing your home and scrubbing the windows, you’ll need fresh scents to round out your spring cleaning. Here, seven ways to put spring in the air.
Cassis Candle, Byredo ($95). Barneys New York, 3040 M St. NW., 202-350-5832
No geraniums and rose bushes in your backyard? No problem. Bring in the sweet scents—along with berry, lemon, and lychee notes—courtesy of this minimalistic, made-in-Sweden candle.
Pure Petals Soap, Eau D’Italie ($36). jaysonhome.com
Washing your hands with Eau D’Italie’s Pure Petals Soap rivals the experience of stepping into a flower shop—except your skin will be left much softer.
Acqua Di Limone Scent Surround Linen Spray, Jo Malone ($60). 5555 Wisconsin Ave., Chevy Chase, 240-744-3700
Spritz this bright citrus scent on your towels and sheets for an energized jolt—in case the warming temperatures outside haven’t done it for you yet.
Orange Blossom Flower Hourglass Diffuser, Diptyque ($150). net-a-porter.com
This diffuser’s hourglass shape is an eye-catching alternative to standard diffusers. Flip it over when you enter the room, and the citrus scent will waft through the space within 20 minutes. One whiff and you’re magically transported to a sunny day on the Mediterranean.
Aurelia Candle, Kobo ($38). sprouthome.com
Handpoured from soy wax, this ‘green’ candle fills your home with the fresh scent of white lilies and heliotrope flowers and burns for 70 hours.
Bouquet Garni Candle, Tatine ($38). tatinecandles.com
If a weekly delivery of fresh garden stems and herbs is but a dream, this candle can do the trick. The scent exudes earthiness—think rosemary, sage, lavender, and dark violet—without being overwhelmingly feminine.
Orange Blossom (Fleurs d'Oranger) Crystal Potpourri, Cote Bastide ($50). kneenandco.com
These potpourri crystals present a modern way to add a subtle scent to your powder room or nightstand.
