Home fragrance: bring a little well-being into your home...

Feel the benefits of a fragranced home!

There's nothing quite like fragrance to create a personalized atmosphere in your home. It's a way of looking after it that's invisible, but can make a huge difference! In Provence, fragrancing your home is seen as a gesture of hospitality. Scents are used to clear and purify the air, so that anyone who steps inside can immediately feel soothed or invigorated. L'OCCITANE uses the finest Provençal ingredients to create different forms of home fragrance: room sprays, diffusers, candles, pillow mists and blends of essential oils. Each of them, in its own way, will fill your home with a pleasant scent. To find out more about the benefits of home fragrance and our different products, read our tips and advice on how to use scent to stir, stimulate and soothe the senses...

#1 Room sprays, for a fragrant atmosphere

Our room sprays were created by a perfumer, and are designed to be both chic and refined. They're made without chemicals and are ideal if you want to freshen up a room. A few sprays are all you need to get rid of unwanted odours and immediately add fragrance to your home.

Unlike scented candles, room sprays can be used now and again, briefly, whenever you want an instant burst of scent. You can even use them on fabrics, such as cushions, curtains or the sofa.

As for our perfume diffusers, they give an elegant touch to any room, while releasing a pleasant scent into the air. If you're looking for a fragrant gift idea, try our home diffuser sets. Inside these beautifully designed boxes, you'll find a glass diffuser bottle, a set of diffuser sticks and a home perfume refill. All you have to do is choose the fragrance...
When you're looking for a scent to create a softly fragrant atmosphere, there's a good choice available. Mint and rosemary will give a fresh, invigorating atmosphere and a clean feel. Green and woody notes tend to be warm and comforting. The soft scents of lavender and sweet orange, meanwhile, which can be found in our Relaxing Pillow Mist, bring a beautiful sense of serenity.

AN EXTRA TIP: Before using a home fragrance, don't forget to air out rooms by opening the windows for at least 15 minutes. Do this every day to renew the air.  

#2 Essential oils, to purify your home

Renowned for their various benefits (relaxing, calming, etc.) and antibacterial properties, essential oils offer a natural, eco-friendly and inexpensive way to diffuse a scent in your home. A few drops are all you need to purify and perfume a room.
There are many different varieties of essential oils, and they come in many scents! Each one has its own specific properties and benefits. However, it is recommended that you use essential oils that are suitable for diffusing.

Lavender essential oil

Lavender is one of the most common essential oils and is known to have antibacterial, antiseptic and antiviral properties. It also has a soothing and calming effect, which makes it excellent for promoting sleep.

Pour a few drops into your perfume diffuser. Remember to clean it once or twice a month, or each time you change essential oil.  

#3 Pillow mist, to sleep like a baby

A pillow mist is slightly different from home fragrance as it's designed specifically to be sprayed onto fabrics.

With its soft, soothing, comforting scent, our pillow mist is a natural sleep aid that can simply be sprayed onto pillowcases. Two sprays are all you need to help you slip into slumberland and sweet dreams...

Formulated with essential oils and floral waters, the light, subtle, 100% natural scent of our pillow mist brings a feeling of relaxation and well-being.

Relaxing Pillow Mist

Made with lavender, bergamot, mandarin orange, sweet orange and geranium – ingredients known for their relaxing properties.
Spray directly onto pillowcases or in your bedroom 15 minutes before going to bed.

#4 Scented candles, for a touch of fragrant indulgence

Any modern living space wouldn't be complete without these much-loved objects. Scented candles are the perfect way to create a subtle combination of fragrance and light.    

Not only do they add a decorative touch to your home; they also create a cosy, comforting, relaxing – or even romantic – atmosphere that makes you feel snug and warm. A soft scent and dancing flame will stimulate the senses and conjure up the sweetest memories.
Our scented candles are available in different fragrances and held in beautiful boxes. Give priority to natural ingredients and scents, such as immortelle and eucalyptus. They're better for the environment and your health.  
Always keep lit candles away from windows and draughts.  Use a candle snuffer: this handy little tool prevents that unpleasant smoky smell you get when you blow out a flame
