Spring Scents for Your Home

A new spring tulip

Since we’ve now entered spring, it’s time to get in the mood for this wonderful season. You might already have plans to do a nice spring cleaning, but have you thought of how you’ll make your Tacoma, WA apartment smell the part? This week on Vista del Rey Blog, we are sharing some of our favorite ways to bring the scents of spring into the home. Have a look at the following ways to get your home smelling fresh and clean and choose your favorite one!


One of the most common items used to add fragrance to a room, candles are always a safe bet. A decent-sized candle lasts for hours and hours, and you can typically light and relight it multiple times over. The nice things about them is that you can find an array of them in virtually every department store. For a nice spring flower scent, try out this Opalhouse orchid candle, or anything else from their floral collection at Target. Yankee Candle is a tried and true brand, and their website offers over 100 candles when you filter by “spring.”

Reed Diffusers

If you’d rather have a flameless option, reed diffusers are a great way to go; they last several months, and they don’t require any maintenance. Archipalago has a popular charcoal rose scent that will keep your apartment smelling in bloom. Explore their website for more ideas!

Fresh Flowers

Rather than trying to mimic the aromas of spring, why not actually bring them into your home with a fresh bouquet of flowers? You might have a difficult time finding flowers to pick this time of year that aren’t in someone’s yard, but your local Tacoma flower shops will definitely be able to help you out. This month, check out some nearby florists like Blitz and Co. or Williams Flower & Gift.

Crock Pot Fresheners

This may sound crazy, but we promise that crock pot fresheners are a thing! If you’re looking for a subtle option, these concoctions often include things like citrus and baking soda, and they’ll leave your apartment smelling clean and fresh. A simple Pinterest search of the term will leave you with plenty of ideas!


We hope your spring is filled with plenty of good times, and lots of great scents.
