Make Your Home Smell Just Like Your Favorite Hotel With These Scented Products
Turn your living room into a posh resort lobby and your bathroom into a world-famous spa with these signature scents you can buy online.
One of the greatest features in a well-designed hotel lobby isn't the decor. It's a smell! A signature scent is one of the oldest tricks in the book for the hospitality industry and it's one that helps create a theme — just like color palettes, materials and textures. Our sense of smell is incredibly powerful and can evoke different emotions and even bring back distant memories. If you’re missing a favorite hotel or destination, you can still travel to it via smell. We've rounded up some of the most famous hotels and their iconic fragrances that you can shop online, from candles to essential oil diffusers to room spray and more. Take a look at our top picks below to fill your home with a different sense of place and transport yourself to your favorite hotel.
W Hotels have a lot going on in their signature scent. It’s a little bit fruity with notes of peach and a little bit musky with laurel leaf and sandalwood. But it works. And it’s a great unisex scent for any room in your home. We love the sleek perfume bottle that the room spray comes in — and that it's less than $60 with free shipping on Amazon! If you’d rather have the scent in candle form, you can buy that, too, in a chic mirror finish.
The Four Seasons is synonymous with luxury, and, unlike other famous fancy chains, it’s not stuffy. No matter which property you visit there’s a balance of elegance with clean, modern design. If you’re an FS fan, you can recreate that same everyday luxury at home with the Four Seasons candle collection. The line features five scents used in their properties around the world, from crisp lychee to warm tonka bean.
Fairmont hotels are a big favorite of Love It Or List It, Too host Jillian Harris. The Canadian brand now operates luxury properties around the world, but most of its crown jewel hotels are in the Pacific Northwest with historic hotels such as the Fairmont Olympic in Seattle and Fairmont Hotel Vancouver in Canada. The rooms are always elegant. And the lobbies are always sophisticated. This is a brand that doesn’t try too hard. It’s just timeless. So it makes sense that the hotel’s signature scent is something classic: rose. Le Labo Rose 31 to be exact. Travelers either love it or hate, but, if you’re in the former camp, you can stock up on the official scent on Amazon.
If you’re looking for a cozy scent to freshen a living room or make a home office more inviting, look no further than Westin’s White Tea signature scent. It’s a great blend of warm cedar and vanilla with a hint of freesia for a sharp smell that’s both crisp and relaxing. Plus, the diffuser rods do all the work for you. Just flip the rods occasionally for a stronger smell.
It doesn’t get any fancier than the Ritz. And now you can put on the Ritz in your own home with The Ritz-Carlton Spa’s signature scented candle. This smell is perfect for the holidays as it features a warm combo of amber and lily with notes of apple and spicy ginger.
Whether you’re visiting Walt Disney World, Disneyland or Disney’s Aulani Resort, one smell is certain if you stay in one of Mickey’s hotels: sea salt. The mouse house partners with H20+ for all of its toiletries, from shampoo to aloe vera gel, but the one smell that will forever remind me of staying at a Disney property is the smell of H20+ sea salt body wash. It’s not overpowering like most soaps with marine botanicals, but it does have that relaxed, beachy vibe. Disney fans used to hoard these tiny bottles because they loved the smell so much, but now you can outfit your own bathroom with the same products via shopDisney. The sea salt body gloss is a spray moisturizer and a great alternative to regular lotion if you’re in a hurry.
Known as "America’s largest home," the historic Biltmore is basically the closest thing Americans have to a royal fairy-tale castle. Today, the French Renaissance-style chateau in Asheville, North Carolina, is open to the public, and the 8,000-acre estate includes its own resort and winery. You can bring home the smell of the latter with a line of candles inspired by their award-winning wines. The candle vessel is actually a repurposed glass wine bottle.
Saks Fifth Avenue carries a line of room sprays from iconic luxury hotels around the world. The Hotel Couture collection features signature scents from several European properties in handy spray bottles to mist every room in your home. Right now, the collection includes Stockholm’s Lydmar Hotel and its rich, sequoia redwood scent.
The Saks Fifth Avenue line also features the signature scent from The Grand Hotel Quisisana in Capri, Italy. This spray is all about the Mediterranean Sea with notes of citrus flowers found on Italy’s southern islands as well as notes of herbs and spices that grow near the sea.
If you don’t like the mess of essential oil drops and misting diffusers, Renaissance has you covered. Their take-home signature scent comes in a pint-sized dry air diffuser: no liquids or set up needed. Just pop the cartridge in and fill your home with their shiso tea fragrance. It’s a little bit floral and a little bit minty which makes a great scent for freshening a mudroom or laundry room.
