The nose knows how powerful fragrance can be, whether it’s your favorite perfume or the candle burning in your living room. “Fragrance is becoming an element of design,” says local candle creator Jimmy Belasco. “The fragrance of your home is vital to set the tone for all other elements of design throughout.” So choose wisely. And remember: the package can be as pretty as the scent is sensational.
