Scent - the Essential Layer.

Scent is essential to creating a cozy & comfortable mood.


Scents work by activating the smell receptors in the nose, which sends signals through the nervous system to the part of the brain which controls emotion. 

The Importance of Scent in a Japandi Room

Japandi embraces nature and creates calm and comfortable spaces. Bringing scent into your Japandi room is important - it further develops the mood. And you can change scent - adjusting the ambience to your preference.

Japandi Tip !

Incense has a bolder, heavier scent - use in large rooms. Candles have a softer scent - ideal for small to medium spaces.



Japandi Scents / Incense

Incense is an aromatic biotic material that releases fragrant smoke when burnt. Incense is combined with aromatic plant materials often combined with essential oils.

Incense is used for aesthetics, religion, aromatherapy, mediation and ceremony. Incense is considered Japandi as it embraces nature in scent and material, creates effects of calmness and wellness (Hygge), and the feeling of comfort it provides.

Japandi Tip / How to Light Incense
  • Hold Incense at angle pointing down to light
  • Light and blow out flame so only smoke is produced.
