Or purchase an apple cinnamon candle or apple cinnamon spray. This will create a nice inviting environment.
Tricks of the Trade: Most loves scents
1. Vanilla Vanilla and vanilla-based aromas have remained the most popular scent for almost a decade.
I would recommend burning a scented candle as they will last the entire day.
Have a great day,

Of course, baking a batch of cookies every 30-45 minutes and having them out, warm, on a plate for the people coming through the open house usually scores pretty high, too.
Have a great day and Dare to Dream.

How about baking some chocolate chip cookies? Talk about smelling yummy! Plus, you can hand them out to your guests... If that is too much, I have heard you can put a few drops of vanilla on a baking sheet and put that in the oven, which will also smell pretty good. You can always try scented candles also. Good luck with your open house!

Hmm...........if I saw a fully complimented table ready for a feast the first thing I'd be doing is looking for some fine dining which would totally distract me from the subject at hand.
"I place large vases of fresh flowers in the home to draw the buyers eye to a staged scene, and I create emotion with themes."
Now just how do you know that YOU are creating "Emotion with Themes?" You don't think a few fresh fragrances would suffice? Nothing better than indigenous aromas permeating the environment. Frankly I think anyone with a sense of smell would be lured to a fresh fragrance. But then that's just my humble opinion.
I use these at my rental vacancies because many of them do not have electricity and the beads keep the unit fresh for weeks at a time.

Pulled pork is a good one. Just take a pork shoulder, put it into a roasting pan, protected with aluminum foil, set to 225 and let sit there for 10-12 hours ... trust me - you don't need to give it a dry rub or marinade. it will come out just FINE. Low and slow ... that's the way. And the smell ...OMG.
How's the weather? If it's a nice day, you're going to want to have the windows and doors open, so food scents aren't going to last long. Maybe something oil-based, such as a pitcher of lemonade, heavily zested. If it's a nesting-type day, then, sure - warming, oven-baked foods will give a sense of comfort.
I'd like to come over about 3:30 or so; please save a plate for me! (Joke!)
