Perfect Scents for Every Room

November 21, 2018

A house becomes a home when you add fragrance to it, especially when you complement each room with a specific scent. If you are unsure which ones to choose, we have put together a room by room guide so you can get the best from each fragrance.

Living Room

The living room is the popular choice when it comes to hosting, so the atmosphere should be as comforting as possible. We would recommend sweeter scents, such as vanilla and honey, which are subtle but warming. Illumens Cassis and Vanilla fragrance would be ideal for the living room as it is a blend of delicious chocolate, blackcurrant and vanilla.


Floral fragrances are best for the bedroom to create either a romantic setting or a relaxing atmosphere. If you’re in the mood for some romance, lighting some rose scented candles like Illumens Floribunda Rose will be sure to set the tone. If you’d rather settle in for the night and drift off to sleep easily, Illumens Sweet Lavender diffuser will help your mind and body completely relax.


We think most people would appreciate an energy boost in the morning and what better way to do it than with revitalising fragrances in your bathroom? Fresh floral scents mixed with some zingy undertones are bound to leave you feeling ready for the day to come. Illumens Teacup fragrance would be ideal for your bathroom, with white floral notes blended with fresh tea and a puff of bergamot.


Although your cooking may be delicious, you don’t want the odour to linger for too long. Citrus scents like lemon, lime or orange are refreshing enough to cut through these aromas and leave your kitchen smelling vibrant and clean. By adding herbs like sage and rosemary into the mix, Illumens Angels Share fragrance would be perfect with its orange and citrus notes.
