my house doesn't ever smell bad. but i also don't think it ever smells fabulous. it's just normal. i feel like i've tried quite a few different things to freshen up the living space, but i don't have a favorite. i used to use oil and and oil burner, which worked really well when we were living in a smaller space. but now that things are a little more open, i feel like the smell just doesn't make it around everywhere like i'd want it to. i have a scentsy warmer that i really like, but i feel like i have the same problem with that as i do with the oil. maybe i just need some new wax to burn in it? candles never go very far, i feel like. anyway, i'm curious to know what you use and what has worked best for you. let me know.
