American actress and filmmaker Courteney Cox is known for her unparalleled sense of style and sophistication, and that ethos extends to her home, too. And not just its looks, but also, how it smells. Making your home smell good all the time is essential if you are having guests over this holiday season.

Scent is potentially the most overlooked senses in design, but it can have a real impact on tackling stress and anxiety. If, similarly to Courteney, you want to make a home smell nice, introducing some of the best home fragrances and best candles to your home is the quickest and easiest way to keep your home smelling fresh, and expensive. 

Smell plays an important role in how our homes make us feel. This idea is the backbone of an interiors movement often referred to as sensory design, which Courteney champions with her business, home wellness brand, Homecourt.

'I have taken great care to curate a space where everyone can feel "at home",' says Courteney Cox. 'Our homes are the one place that can bring a sense of calm and serenity in our lives.'

A sensory approach is at the heart of everything the actress and entrepreneur does. Life is a multisensory experience, and fragrance can not only trigger an emotional response but also connect humans with their environments. Therefore, finding the optimum smell is essential for your health and overall well-being.

Christmas is the optimum time to refresh and rethink your home scent. With this in mind, Homecourt has crafted a scent that is believed to make you feel happier at home

The award-winning Balsam Fireplace collection is described as an intoxicating scent of fresh evergreen woods, warm juniper spice, and salted amber. 

But the collection is so much more than just style, it provides substance, too. The Balsam Fireplace candle, for example, will burn for 60 hours, meaning it will impress for many nights of socializing over this holiday period.

This captivating scent hasn't sold out yet, but if last year is anything to go by, we'd say it's only a matter of time. And, since Courteney's brand is approved by celebrity royalty, such as Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston, and actress Sarah Paulson, we predict that the current stock won't last beyond Christmas.
