It may sound odd, but one of my favorite things to experience during my trips to the mall are the signature smells of some of my favorite stores. Perhaps my favorite aroma is that of Williams-Sonoma stores.

If you’ve never shopped in the kitchenware and home furnishing store, I would describe the scent you encounter as clean, sweet and sophisticated – very much like the essence of the store’s brand.

I similarly enjoy enhancing the ambiance in my home with fragrances such as scented candles and essential oil diffusers. However, I’ve discovered a great way to duplicate the scent found in my favorite store, at home, with a few simple ingredients!

All you have to do is:

– Bring two cups of water to a boil

– Add a sprig of rosemary and a stick of vanilla

– Add the juice from one full lemon

– Allow pot to boil until the scent fills your home

Tell Me: What’s your favorite home scent?
