Why perfuming your home?
It’s so good to open the door to your home and be greeted by soft and comforting scents or even fresh and invigorating smells! While we often tend to rely on skin perfumes to carry our favorite fragrances with us all day, the power of home fragrances should not be underestimated. In just a few moments they are capable of so much. From a practical point of view, they allow you to chase away bad smells. Say goodbye to the heavy smell of yesterday’s Raclette or the familiar musty scent of a house you’ve returned to after the vacations.
After a long and tiring day, all you want to do is go home and curl up under the blanket. Home fragrance helps you warm up the atmosphere while transforming your room into a cozy cocoon. And in addition to making you discover your favorite fragrances in a new format, they also become decorative objects that we like to collect. From the bedroom to the living room, through the office, we are totally addicted to these pretty scented objects that perfume our interior!

By burning, they will rid you for a long time of unpleasant odors while installing a hushed atmosphere, with a powerful smell.

To embalm your house, it is also possible to “divert” your skin perfumes.

Be sure to spray the fragrance from a distance to avoid creating unsightly stains. The perfume will cling to the fibers of your textiles to diffuse their wake for a few hours or even days.
