Top 5 Best Fragrances for the Office

Whether you’re working from home with the new shift to remote work, or still working out of a standard office environment, it’s important to have an enjoyable working atmosphere. High quality fragrances are one of the best ways to spice up any office environment. They also provide very specific benefits when it comes to mood, productivity, and more. Let’s take a look at some of these scientifically supported benefits, and then dive into our best fragrances for the office.


Why Scent Your Office?


It’s easy to underestimate the role scent can play in our workspace. Sure, fragrances can make a space smell better, but is there really that much more to the story? Surprisingly, yes. The power of fragrance goes far beyond just producing pleasant smells. Many fragrances have specific benefits that can improve many areas of our lives, including our work.


Scent has been shown to improve not just productivity, but even the quality of one’s work. Studies have found that workers made fewer errors while enjoying the scents of lemon, jasmine, and lavender.


Some other important qualities that contribute to our work are things like memory, awareness, and stimulation. Different fragrances have been shown to improve these faculties. Peppermint, for example, has been shown to increase memory and awareness. The scent of jasmine may stimulate the nervous system.


All in all, studies continue to show that scent is a healthy, natural way to boost energy, mood and quality of work. This makes it an incredibly valuable addition to any office. That said, not all fragrances produce the same effects. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites for the office specifically.
