To give your abode a truly home-sweet-home air, a few well-placed fragrance elements can make every room smell divine. Here are two of our favorite collections, with décor-worthy designs as pleasing to the eye as they are to the nose.
Antica Farmacista. With over 20 fragrances in this beautiful collection, there certainly is one (and likely more) that will appeal to you. Though any one fragrance would make a room smell delicious, some scents enhance particular spaces especially well. Try a fresh herbal in the kitchen, a soothing elixir in the bedroom and a breezy floral in the bathroom.
Preferred pick: ‘Bergamot and Ocean Aria’ Home Ambience Perfume smells like the beach. Fresh notes of saltwater blended with soft jasmine, tranquil lavender and crisp bergamot evoke the allure and effervescence of the ocean. Warm notes of white musk and lush oak moss complete the captivating scent.
diptyque. The diptyque Home collection blends classic and modern, with a cult-status assortment of intimate, unique scents that honor nature through carefully chosen raw materials.
Preferred pick: The ’34 Boulevard Saint Germain’ Diffuser is shaped like an abstract hourglass, mingling old-world charm and modern design. This visually distinctive vessel diffuses fragrance through gravity and osmotic motion, and simply requires an occasional turn. The aroma? A charming mix of citrus, spices, florals, amber and hints of wood and eucalyptus that pays homage to diptyque’s first boutique in Paris. A completely chic, luxurious way to scent your home sweet home.

We’ve mentioned our diptyque devotion before, not only for all the divine scents to choose from, but also for those elegant, simply designed containers. But what to do when your wick runs out? We discovered that we weren’t the only ones who thought it a shame to get rid of our empty jars when we hit up one of our favorite resources for inspiration—Pinterest.
Here are our favorite ideas that we came across for upcycling diptyque candle jars.
