Use Fresh pine fragrance to sharpen up interiors
We know what you’re thinking: is it possible to love pine fragrance without an overpowering scent association with cheap car air fresheners? Well, the answer is an emphatic one: absolutely, yes! Artificial, odour-masking scents are out; fresh, forest notes are in. Quality wax (often hand-poured and natural) and luxurious oils make all the difference to a finished fragrance. We’re also witnessing a more creative approach in the perfumed process: introducing other scents that complement the power of Pine. Earthier notes such as Spruce, Birch, Sandalwood and Oakmoss enhance the perkiness of Pine while Leather, Lily of the Valley, Mint, and Freesia, hint at a rich sophistication. The results are longer-lasting, clean, sharp and uncomplicated. As a result, Pine fragrance uplifts interiors.
Not just a festive, wintery choice either, Pine fragrance is an all-season scent. Its vibe is natural and outdoorsy with a positive effect on wellbeing. The Japenese activity “shinrin-yoku” means “forest bathing” or “taking in the forest atmosphere”. The term, coined by the Forest Agency of Japan, recognises the importance of spending time in forested areas. Short, gentle walks through the woods can have positive health effects: lowering blood pressure, reducing stress levels, and boosting the immune system. The olfactory experience is key to the relaxation effect: inhaling fresh, green, foresty smells reinforces a powerful connection to nature. Go for a walk in a forest. Breathe. Recreate the fresh scent at home with candles, essential oils and reed diffusers.
