There’s no place like home. I felt that way as soon as I entered my house after a month away. I missed my favourite couch, my comfy bed, and, yes, even my kitchen.
When you haven’t been in a space for a long time, it looks and feels different after you return. But it doesn’t take very long to ease back into that ever-so-comfortable familiar setting.
Home is where the heart is – the centre of your life and your family’s foundation. Even after a long day out at work, or a whirlwind weekend getaway, there is nothing more enjoyable than coming home.
Now with the seasons changing, I’m looking forward to baking and cooking my favourite comfort foods, like apple pie. Autumn wouldn’t be the same without apple picking, and preserving apple pie filling for the colder months ahead. Soon enough, Thanksgiving will be upon us, and the exotic scents of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and spices like thyme and rosemary will warm up my kitchen.
I’ll welcome a mini-escape from the kids and the hockey rink where I can curl up with a book and enjoy a coffee in my favourite reading chair. Or a yoga “retreat” in my home office, with my favourite meditation music and hypnotizing incense.
But before I know it, I’ll be dreaming about my next beach vacation, the memories of the tropical breeze and whiffs of the sand and salty ocean flooding my mind. Sometimes I close my eyes, imagine the sun on my skin and smell the beach! While I’m not physically there, I know I can bring that atmosphere into my home with décor and similar scents – to remind me of my happy place.
Air Wick® Life Scents™ has some of those favourite scents that you can bring into your home, invoking those wonderful feelings and memories.
Mom’s Baking: Enjoy the aroma of caramelized pears with a hint of spice, baked inside a crumbly, buttery pie crust topped with cool vanilla cream. The fragrance creates a sense of coziness and inspires warm childhood memories at home.
Summer Delights: Transform your home into a garden on a beautiful, breezy summer evening with its cool, fruity, floral combination of fresh cantaloupe slices, white flowers, and vanilla ice cream.
Turquoise Oasis: Turn your home into a seaside retreat as a warm breeze carrying salty sea spray washes over you, bringing with it the invigorating aroma of weathered driftwood.
Sweet Lavender Days: Let the intoxicating aroma of endless lavender fields, layered with dewy summer berries and warm sugar cane, create a sense of comfort, freshness and relaxation in your home.
