A home smelling nice is not something that should be labeled as feminine. While my partner did certainly introduce me to the idea of scented candles, I’ve found a few that I really enjoy and I now find myself burning them most days.

For work, a fresh scent like mint or pine is invigorating, while I like woody scents when it’s time to relax and get ready to get some quality rest. Nowadays, most major stores have a whole aisle of candles: take a sniff of a few and pick one out for your living room to make it feel a lot more cozy and humane.
