Looking for good smells that last

Posted by Heidiho (My Page) on

Tired of the same old smells and can't find anything that last anymore. Have tried all the new plug-in's and sprays and poi pourri's ect. for the house but I would like a nice, clean, fresh but not sweet, lasting smell to my house. Any suggestions ? I just use regular stuff for cleaning. Comet ect. for bath and pet odor (no pets but find it works good) or other sprinkles for carpet and Lysol for hardwood floors. I'd also like to find something in the same order for my person. I work all day at a Goodwill and would like to get a fresh whiff of something on my body that would last all day. I use Candid and Far Away from Avon and a good bit of Dove baby powder deodorant.Just looking for a change. You can call me stinky lol!! What do ya'll use? Any suggestions will be appreciated.Have a nice weekend.

I have started using a candle warmer, it seems to intensify the scent of the candle. Is safer, no flame and the candle lasts longer. Make sure the candle is in a heavy glass holder, as it will melt the candle to liquide. I have on it now (I think it is Cotton)a Candle-lite candle and it smells so fresh. I don't like real heavy scented anything, but this is nice.

Go to your local health food store and buy some of the pure essential oils that they sell.

Mix with water in a spray bottle and spray around the house.

You won't be breathing in *chemicals*, which is what those scent things you are buying are made of.

You can even spray this on yourself, as it is natural and pure.

Also check out Aveda scents for the body and hair. They will even customize a scent for you.
