Scent can transport, change a mood, create a feeling
What memories are your strongest? Which are the ones that make you happiest when you recall them? Chances are, the things that you remember most clearly are not just something in your mind’s eye, but ones that bring in all of your senses– smell, sound, taste, touch, and sight. David Monn, known as the uber event planner behind some of the most jaw-dropping soirees of all time, puts scent front and center of anything he designs.
Scent can transport, change a mood, create a feeling. So what’s going on in your house when it comes to smells?
WHAT’S THAT ODOR? This is the worst. You walk in and there’s a distinct SMELL. The most architecturally opulent home we ever owned had the oddest (read: offensive) smell that I couldn’t get rid of no matter what I did. Candles, diffusers, and incense are not the answer. This kind of problem calls for the big guns– exterminators, vents and systems cleaned, and someone who has the time and patience to track the problem to its source.
My favorite shops for candles in the Greenwich area? on Greenwich Avenue, on Greenwich Avenue, on Lewis St, and on Greenwich Avenue.
