I have started a little study on our first ladies and will share them with you as I go:) Please note that I am copying and pasting so that is why all the different fonts:)
Martha Parke (Custis) Washington 1756-1773
Wedding pictureMrs. Washington's descendants recorded that she wore a gown of yellow silk damask with a petticoat of cream silk highlighted with interwoven silver threads. The sample they have in the museum looks nothing like this gown. Note: the two young children in the picture are hers from a previous marriage.
Martha Washington was born Martha Dandridge on June 2, 1731, in New Kent County, Virginia, on the Chestnut Grove plantation. She was raised and educated with an emphasis on skills seen as integral to running a household, though also taught reading, writing and mathematics.

I love scented candles but have never been comfortable lighting one and leaving the room so I have started using plug in's like these...
And my favorite thing is to use potpourri and add essential oil. Here is one in the entry way with a spicy oil
and one in the master bath with Eucalyptus oil
and my very favorite is this one in the half bath with a woodsy smell
Hope it gave you some ideas to freshen up things at your house😉
