TOP 5 HOME FRAGRANCES
One of the most important thing in creating ambiance, I believe, is scent. When I first walk into a space, I almost always notice the fragrance of the room. The visceral reaction to scent is deeply connected to the part of the brain were memory is stored, that's why certain scents can bring us back to a childhood memory or a specific time in our lives. So when decorating a space, never neglect to add a home fragrance to the layer for a complex ambiance that extends beyond the visuals. Here are my picks for the perfect fragrance to any room. What are your favorites? Please share in the comments below.

For those who aren't so into earthy, woody notes, I love the heady notes of sandalwood and cedarwood that eases seamlessly into a blend of nutmeg and cinnamon. Sweet, but not too sweet.
