Using the technique of fragrance zoning  to create a different ambiance in each area with fragrance needs to be intentional. Encountering a scent can be a positive sensory experience, igniting conversations, triggering memories, and altering our emotional state. It is a result of self expression and the decision of what feeling you want to create when entering a different space to boost your personal wellbeing. Here are some tips  from fragrance experts, on what to consider when fragrance zoning, along with some scent recommendations.  


From sprays, diffusers or candles there are several ways to achieve the desired atmosphere. Depending on the season, the intensity, the rapidity or even how long you want the fragrance to last you can choose the right product for you. You can also try different options until you find the right fit for your style and aesthetic or you can even layer fragrances to create a more complex composition. Even though when creating a fragrance, perfumers make sure it is complete on its own, being creative and exploring what works for you is part of the process.



When entering your home, it is important to create an inviting atmosphere for you and your guests. This will ensure the start of a succesful visit. It would be great to choose a comfoting scent like a floral bouquet such as HELIOS, a relaxing lavender or even a nostalgic and warm vanilla scent.



 When working from home, using a home-office scent can help reduce stress and increase focus and productivity. It has been scientifically proven that essential oils such as peppermint increase focus. Notes such as lavender, lemon or eucalyptus help improve the mood and give an energy boost. An ideal note for ultimate concentration and focus would be HESPERIDES as it contains natural peppermint oil and it will diffuse the space with fresh, clean and invigorating lemon notes.
