These days, the number of fragrances that your home cleaning products can come in is almost unlimited—gone are the days when your only choices were lemon and pine. But did you know that the smells that we associate with cleanliness differ from culture to culture? In France, for example, where historically lavender was used for household cleaners, that’s the scent many French people associate with cleanliness. In Brazil, cleaning products traditionally use floral scents, such as gardenia and tuberose, which are more commonly found in high class perfumes in North America. Obviously, a product’s effectiveness isn’t dictated by what it smells like, it’s purely there as a signal that something has been cleaned, so pick whatever scent you like, and enjoy it!
