The Smell of Your Home

Scientific studies have proven that of all the senses, the sense of smell is most linked to emotion and memory. Think about it, I bet you can remember going into a home that had an elegant candle burning or a delicious dessert cooking, a boutique hotel’s exotic scent that transported you right into vacation mode, or perhaps a home that could’ve used a candle. When entertaining, it is important to remember that the smell of your home could make a long lasting impression on your guests-  Why, you ask? Because the part of the brain that controls the sense of smell is imbedded in the area that controls memory formation…. 

Ready for some candles now? Here are some of my favorites:
