  • Pressed flower bars ($20): Tuck these fragrant bars into dresser drawers or hang them in your closet to infuse the scent of black vetiver, oak, and geranium into your clothes and linens.
  • Diptyque electronic diffuser ($350): If you're addicted to burning their candles, you'll be tempted to splurge on this chic diffuser for a scent that keeps on giving.
  • Santa Maria Novella potpourri ($35): Erase any negative association you might have about potpourri. This potent blend of herbs and flowers plucked from the Florentine hills has a cult following for a reason.
  • Armenian burning paper ($28): Used in Europe since the 16th century, these frankincense and myrrh scented papers work wonders with removing unwanted odors. To use, fold a sheet of paper into an accordion shape, light one end, then blow out the flame. The paper will slowly burn like incense!
  • Rosemary tree ($58): Think of it as a fragrant herb garden in the form of a stylish, potted tree. Place it on your coffee table or kitchen counter to enjoy its piney scent.
  • Incense ($14): These aren't the musky hippie sticks you might be familiar with. Available in three scents, this incense uses wild herbs, wood, and sap for a forest-inspired fragrance that feels fresh.
  • Bay Leaf Wreath ($40): Try hanging this small wreath on your pantry door for an aromatic, decorative element that can also be used for cooking.
  • CB I Hate Perfume home sprays ($45): A few sprays from one of these bottles will instantly transport you to a scenic apple orchard, cozy campfire, or any place else you desire!
