Nose blind means that after you are exposed to a certain smell for a little while, you adapt, and can no longer smell that scent very strongly, or even at all.

Have you ever bought a fragrance, plugged it in, and after an hour you could not smell it ever again? This can happen with any smell, whether it be perfume, home fragrance, food smells, etc. This is because we can go nose blind!

Nose blind means that after you are exposed to a certain smell for a little while, you adapt, and can no longer smell that scent very strongly, or even at all.

Here is a quick definition of Nose Blind: a gradual acclimation of the smell of your home, car, or belongings, and the person does not smell them, even though other people like their guests can smell them. It is pretty crazy stuff.. Have you ever been to someone’s house and they just have their “smell”? You can’t quite put your finger on it, but the family or house has a smell and the people living their have no clue.

Counteract Your Nose Blindness

If you want to counteract that household smell to make sure that you have a fresh and yummy smelling home that everyone wants to be in, use your Pura.  

Here are some ideas to help you out with this endeavor.

  1. Create custom schedules! This is our #1 tip to help your Pura experience and so you do not go noseblind. When you create custom schedules, the Pura turns on and off whenever you want, and that helps the scent to always be fresh and easily smellable by everyone.  

  2. Another thing about creating a custom schedule is you save a whole bunch of fragrance! Instead of using it 24/7 and not being able to fully smell it all the time, you have it turn on when you want to have the best scenting experience.

  3. Make sure to turn the Pura scent intensity up when you want to impress people or when you have guests coming over! This will ensure that your guests will always want to come back.  

  4. One last thing to think about is what kind of fragrance you want in which spaces of your home. Do you want a clean smell such as Linens and Surf in the front space where people are walking in, or would you like a more woodsy homey smell like Asian Woods and Spice? Each room is so unique and deserves a special scent that will waken up the space and make it feel and smell amazing

So much of our time is spent in our homes that we should try and make them feel as welcoming and comfortable for ourselves and for our guests as possible. Scent is one of the most delicate senses that can bring back memories and help us remember things. I like to think that the scent wafting through my home will always remind me of my first home and all of the wonderful memories that were made with my family.
