A cocooning interior is first of all an interior where you enjoy spending your time. So that each room of your home invites you to relax, the atmosphere counts as much as the decoration. Creating a signature scent in your home is a good way to make it unique, while creating a soothing atmosphere.

Our decorating ideas for a cocooning living room.

The living room is probably the room where you spend the most time. It is therefore the ideal place for a cozy environment. Don’t skimp on blankets and soft cushions on the sofa, but also on candles. Small, large, colored or monochromatic, place scented candles of all shapes and sizes on your coffee table. Be careful to honor a certain olfactory code, however, to avoid scents that don’t match. You can follow the same principle of accumulation along the fireplace or even directly on the floor, creating a relaxation space mixing candles and cozy poufs on the floor.

 

Our tip : For a natural and relaxing atmosphere, go for a candle with floral notes such as our Spring Violet Scented Candle. Add an extra visual touch by scattering flower petals around the candle jar.

 

Candles for a cosy atmosphere in the bathroom.

On the edge of the bathtub or elsewhere, the bathroom is full of spots to place your scented candles. You can even install a small side table dedicated exclusively to candles. For a relaxing atmosphere, it is better to avoid too aggressive light sources and prefer to multiply the candles with relaxing perfumes. Light them up just before getting into the bath to enjoy the soothing glow of the flames. Make sure to extinguish the wick as soon as you leave the tub.

 

Our tip : In the bathroom, choose soft scents with floral or fruity candles. For even more zenitude, you can also opt for fresh notes like white bamboo associated with water lily.
