Tips on Using Scented Candles

DonataMeirelles, editor of Vogue Brazil, offers tips on making the home sweet-smelling, warm and inviting to guests. Donata asks whether it is common among people to enter a reputable business and always sense the same sweet smell, a smell that makes you feel comfortable and invited as a guest? She comments that this is the way a home should also feel to your guests who enter. The first entrance into a home should also send an unspoken communication ot your guests that you are welcomed by the homeowner. One way to communicate that message without loudspeakers and a recording of your voice is to send it sensually by colors, textures, and sweet aromas filling the air.

Beginning the Day

The best location to have a scented candle is the entrance and main room of your home since it is the place where you welcome others to your home and the setting for the rest of your home. Whenever your guests leave your home they will remember the aroma and combined with your personal greeting will make your guests identify a sweet warm presence to you and your home.
