Three Scents That Will Bring New Life To Your Home

The other morning I left my house and was nearly assaulted by a dragonfly. While that may seem dramatic, the reality is that something is always flying around the hallways of my building because the super leaves the windows open. Of course we need ventilation but this is one of the reasons why many of you don’t open your windows during the summer months. Then when we notice the air is getting stale, we make the mistake of cracking the window and next thing you know, we’ve got mosquito bites. Well, the next time the air in your home needs freshening up, reach for one of these gems. Each has of given new life to mine.

Juniper Ridge Big Sur

Juniper Ridge Big Sur
Many of us who live in cities often want to bottle up fresh air when we get the chance to free ourselves from the smog. Fresh air in a bottle is how I’d describe Juniper Ridge’s Big Sur as it’s aromatic opening is a thing of beauty. Like all of their products, the scent is sourced from real plants and from Sur I get sweet mossy notes. With its jolt of energy, it immediately transforms stale air and gives it new life. $65

Nest Fragrances Sicilian Tangerine

Like a fresh juicy tangerine on a hot summer day that quenches your thirst, Nest Fragrances’ Sicilian Tangerine is bursting with vibrant flavor. The scent is sweet with a bit of tang but what I really like is that it isn’t overpowering. It beautifully perfumes the air enough to give it a new life and along the way, lifts your spirits too. $38

Joya Pendleton Candles
Joya x Pendleton Cedar + Smoke Candle
If citrus isn’t your cup of tea and leather and cedar is more up your alley, you’ll dig Joya’s latest collaboration with Pendleton. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Pendleton’s founder, Thomas Kay, the brand partnered with Joya to launch a collection of candles. I’ve been burning Cedar & Smoke, which is gently masculine. Its notes read as follows: musk, saddle leather, damask rose, redwood chips and cedar leaf. I wonder how much rose they used because some of these notes read “pack me away until winter.” But together, they’re superbly balanced. $58

  1. I know exactly what you mean when you say the air is getting stale. I hardly ever open my windows during the summer and that recycled air gets thick at times. I don’t know what it never dawned on me to burn a candle. I’ve tried Nest’s candles before, I think I’ll look into getting one this weekend. Thanks.

  2. I’ve been a long time fan of Juniper Ridge. Glad to see them featured here.
