Are you are candle user? People use candles for a variety of reasons — whether it’s for celebrations, romance, the pleasing fragrance, to light up your dinner table, or just for relaxing. In fact, the National Candle Association (NCA) tells us that 7 out of 10 American households, including apartment communities like Grady Management, use candles regularly. If you are not a candle user, there are a host of other options to fill your apartment with delicious scents. We’ve outlined some apartment-friendly candle alternatives in order to keep your apartment smelling fresh without the help of a flame.
Reed diffuser look like pieces of art and come in a wide variety of scents. Periodically flip which end of the reeds are in the oil to maximize scent distribution.
Candle warmers offer a fabulous alternative to burning candles. As long as the candle is contained in a glass jar, you can use a warmer to enjoy its delicious scent.
We love odor neutralizing gel beads because they emit a soft, subtle scent. Just make sure they are out of reach of pets and children.
Potpourri not only smells amazing, but it looks pretty too!
Essential oil diffusers are a wonderful way to periodically release your favorite scent into your apartment.
We also love Scentsy products! They offer a variety of the products we’ve already mentioned like warmers, scent bars that you melt in the warmers, and essential oils. They also sell room sprays, cleaning products, and body products.
Scents contribute to a warm and welcoming atmosphere for your apartment. The Adams Crossing management team hopes these ideas for keeping your luxury apartment smelling like a five star hotel will inspire you to invest in apartment-friendly candle alternatives.
