Fry a dried fish or squid for lunch and you can smell your kitchen walls (or even up to your family room walls) for 3 days smelling of it. If you thought of grilling or have some barbeque outside but forgot to close the windows, the wind will also carry it inside the house.
What I do is light a candle under my oil lamp and put drops of peppermint, or fruity scent that I have at stock. It used to be flowery scent but my li’l princess finds it repugnant. There are actually many options to giving a nice scent to your place even just for the love of it; scented candles, potpourris, Chinese sticks (incense), sprays, or electric ones of new discoveries. It is relaxing and the feeling of being “home”. You may choose a signature scent for you, or like me preferring one scent at a different room, but not too much of it. Just a very light touch of something, like a smell of wood at the porch, or a flower near a garden window, fruity in the kitchen or mint in a room...refreshingly different don’t you think?
