There’s a certain delight in making your home feel cosy in autumn – even if you’re pining for the warmer weather – and one of the best ways of doing this is to switch up your home fragrances for autumn via snuggly scented candles and fragrance diffusers.
You don’t have to go full in on cinnamon and clove or spiced orange scents yet: that might feel a bit Christmas-sy too early? (But hey – if you’re already humming carols and contemplating putting your tree up, we’re not here to judge, so you do you!) So, those of us who want to feel cosy but not full-on winter vibes yet could plump for pine forest like perfumed candles or opt for a woody diffuser that feels like a breath of autumnal air wafts around your house. Others may like a tingle of spice but added to floral notes for a sumptuous scented space to enjoy.
Whichever option you plump for, here’s our perfumed pick of perfect home scents to look for right now…

Rich and warm, this evocative blend of black tobacco, coffee and brandy will transform your space. ‘This was one of our very first four fragrances and the most complex we’ve ever had to formulate – taking over forty drafts to perfect.’
Cochine Juniper & Ginger Diffuser £60 for 150ml
