When it comes to maintaining your personal living space, whether it be a room, an apartment or an entire home, one thing remains universal: no one wants to smell any kind of odor.

Whether it be from your garbage can or your dirty laundry, household odors should never take over the experience of simply enjoying your space.

Candles and air fresheners remain the most commonly used products for maintaining fresh, fragrant air at home, but there are so many other options that do the same task and even more.

Room sprays, which are different and more concentrated than standard air fresheners, usually contain a blend of essential oils, producing a more natural and long-lasting scent when compared to the more factory-processed Febreezes and Glades of the world.

If you’re looking for a more slow-burn option that warmly fills any room over time, a chic diffuser is the perfect choice. And luckily, there are so many options to choose from these days.

Hundreds of shoppers love this chic, minimal stone diffuser from Vitruvi. Its matte ceramic build makes it the perfect accent piece for any room, allowing it to double as a work of art. It’s perfect on countertops, bedsides and shelves and emits a soft natural aroma to scent your space throughout the day.

Shoppers and Amazon editors also love this Ultimate Aromatherapy Diffuser that comes with a set of 10 therapeutic-grade essential oils. It’s so popular that over 20,000 Amazon shoppers gave it a five-star rating.

For those whose garbage cans always seem to be the odor source, the customer-favorite Munchkin Arm & Hammer Puck Baking Soda Cartridge is a must-have. It attaches under the trash can lid and, just like the baking soda box in your fridge, it sucks up any odors and reveals a fresh, clean scent every time you open up your garbage.

And lastly, scented candles are a tried-and-true go-to for a reason — and there are so many options to choose from. The Black-owned Frama 1917 scented candle is a popular pick at Nordstrom, while the Paddywax Apothecary candles are a fool-proof method of making your space feel cozy and smell beautiful.
