I bet we can all agree that hotels—especially their lobbies—smell amazing. The good news is, we don't need to blow lots of cash to make our homes smell as fancy as these places.
Here are some affordable luxe-smelling home scents you can buy online:
1. Shangri-La-inspired Reed Diffusers, P400/50 ml and P750/120ml, from Spruce Up
If you love the luxurious scent of Shangri-La Hotel's lobby, you'll be happy to know that local brand Spruce Up Gifts has come up with reed diffusers that were inspired by this. The best part is they only cost less than P800!
P.S. They also have a Smart Scent Machine (P6,000) that's designed to automatically dispense fragrance oils (you may adjust how often the machine sprays.) You can use it to effortlessly maintain the pleasant scent in your home.
2. Ginger Flower, P421/125ml, from BC Fragrance
Fun fact: BC Fragrance's scents are being used in several hotels and showrooms. Their best-seller is Ginger Flower—it contains a blend of lily of the valley, jasmine, ginger flower, citruses, and vanilla.

4. Pure Caribbean Reed Diffuser, P960, Alexander Fragrance
Alexander Fragrance recreates the feel of staying in a "five-star hotel" with this reed diffuser. The local brand describes the scent as "light floral" and "aquatic-powdery." It has notes of light bergamot and tea, and it's spiced with ginger. Its base notes are sandalwood, vanilla, and musk.
5. Fresh Bamboo Waterbased Oil, P690/100ml, from Mia Maison
Pick up a bamboo fragrance oil if you want to come home to a fresh-smelling, resort-like space. This one from Mia Maison has a clean and crisp scent. According to the fragrance brand, "Fresh Bamboo reminds you of crisp jungle leaves in a damp bamboo forest or a day hike to a majestic grassy mountain range."
