Do you love to open your home up to guests? Any hospitality guide will tell you to give your guests an inviting place to retreat for the evening. In addition to crisp, clean sheets, a fresh flower arrangement, and an assortment of toiletries, don’t forget scented candles or diffusers to make the room smell inviting. When choosing a scent for a guest room, think of who will be staying over and choose from a floral, clean, or fruity scent that will best match your guest’s taste.

As a Marylander, the Annapolis Riverbank candle is a gorgeous scent that I would happily keep in a guest bedroom, but even if you’ve never set foot in the Free State, this floral fragrance smells fantastic and looks super charming with it’s nautical packaging.  This candle is made with a soy wax blend and is described as “a floral melange of velvety magnolia and budding honeysuckle layered with hints of lavender and fresh lemongrass.”

Sometimes it’s hard to fall asleep when you’re not in your own bed, but when the room feels clean and fresh, you can certainly rest better. If you have overnight guests, keep their room smelling as clean and comforting as a laundry basket filled with warm linens with the K. Hall Washed Cotton diffuser. This fragrance blends chamomile and lavender, leaving the room smelling like fresh laundered cotton. Beverly from Mississippi wrote, “I bought the linen spray while on a trip to Alys Beach FL. Loved it so much that I bought several sprays, soap, laundry soap and the diffuser. It smells exactly like freshly laundered linens hung on the line to dry. Great product and smell.” This fragrance is

Hostess gifts are lovely, but I like to send my guests home with a little something too. The Voluspa Saijo Persimmon 2-Wick Tin candle is a sweet, peachy scent that lets your guests feel at home. Leave a note on some beautiful stationery to let them know they can put the lid on this candle and toss it into their luggage when they’re packing up to head home. Whenever they burn this candle in their own home, they will remember the sweet gesture and hospitality that they enjoyed during their stay.
