Fresh

Spring is the season of fresh starts after all, so bringing a light and airy aroma home is a great idea. To confirm, fresh is not the smell of your home post-spring cleaning. It should remind you of the great outdoors, the smell of grass after a quick downpour or the sharp breeze when you’re by the sea.
