These exotic scents promise to give your home a little something extra

They are tuned to recreate a sense of happiness, well-being, and nostalgia depending on ingredients and flavours. Vanilla can make you think of freshly baked cookies, nutmeg and cinnamon can bring up memories of family gatherings at Christmas, lavender and chamomile can lull you into a peaceful sleep. Your home is your sanctuary and finding the right scent can be as important as the perfect sofa. Take a look at these luxury fragrance brands available in India that have the perfect options from candles to sprays.
