The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and cool, one of the best feelings is coming inside your home and having it smell nice and cozy. Sure, fresh flowers can help a room smell lovely, but what about the rest of the house? Today we are sharing some tips and tricks to make your entire home smell great before visitors arrive.

Pumpkin spice, gingerbread, cinnamon, cedar wood and vanilla are  all well known fall smells. Doesn’t everyone want their home to smell like all of these scents throughout the holiday season? However, fall scented candles are not your only option. Create a cozier home with these fall scent ideas.

Essential oils are not only great for a long-lasting scent, but many have health benefits for your entire family. Just add a few drops into your diffuser to have a great aroma spread throughout your home. You can even blend oils together to get a combination of your favorite fall scents. Amazon currently has the Autumn Set of 6 Premium Grade Fragrance Oils (Brown Sugar, Apple, Harvest Spice, Vanilla, Forest Pine, Snickerdoodle) for just $16. If you don’t already own a diffuser Amazon also has an abundance of great options under $20

Another great option to make your home smell nice is with a wax warmer. Yankee Candle has an entire fall collection of tarte melts for you to enjoy. Even better, most are on sale for just $1. Like wax melts, candles are known for making your home smell wonderful. My favorite candle of fall is the Anthropologie Capri Blue Iridescent Jar Candle. It features notes of tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons and limes, and lightly mountain greens. Other top fall candles can be found here on Amazon.

Potpourri is an essential to have in your home for the fall and winter season. It’s gorgeous placed in a vase and as decoration. The Pier One Sweet Caramel Pumpkin Potpourri has notes of almost all of the fall smells in one. Plus it’s currently on sale for just $16. Lastly, wall plug-ins are a way to make every room in your home smell like fall. The Glade Plug-Ins in Cashmere Woods feature a set of four fragrances for just $29.
