Scent from heaven

Spring calls for fresh flo­ral fra­grance

NZ House & Garden - - ANTENNA / THE BIG IDEA -

Gone are the musky, spicy scents of win­ter; it’s time to wel­come fresh gar­den fra­grances into your home. Flow­ers will do the trick, but what about more long-last­ing op­tions? “Dif­fusers pro­vide a more pas­sive and con­tin­u­ous fra­grance,” says Ju­lia Atkin­son from Ecoya. “Be­ing flame­less they re­quire less main­te­nance – per­fect for ar­eas in the home where you might not spend a lot of time, like a hall­way or bath­room.” Can­dles give a greater fra­grance throw and add am­bi­ence. When us­ing your can­dle for the first time, Ju­lia sug­gests burn­ing for at least an hour, al­low­ing the wax pool to reach the edge to pre­vent tun­nelling. To get the most out of your can­dle, trim the wick to around 6mm each time you use it.
