There is also nothing worse than the smell of spices from last nights dinner drifting through the house either, so be careful of using strong smelling cooking ingredients during the time your home is listed for sale. The smell of home baked bread, cookies or cake is always great but can also be looked at as trying to cover other smells so I personally do not think that is a great idea either. Also, the use of fragrant candles is not a good idea as again it can be and has been used to cover odours and may be seen as just that.
How to use your serenity room? Take an hour per week, or day, or whatever time you decide, and go there. Light the candles. Draw the shades. Put on acappella chant, Tim Janis, Enya, or Secret Garden on the stereo. Stretch out together on the pillows, and just listen to each other breathe. Relax. Enjoy. If this isn't part of everyone's mental health regimen yet it soon will be, as people discover the value of this priceless 'sensory deprivation'. The biggest obstacle you'll find in the beginning is allowing yourself the luxury of ignoring all the 'have to's', 'should be's' and general restlessness that causes you to need the room in the first place. But it's noise that's the primary concern.
So, get the neighbors sorted out by telling them that there will be some noise and contractors in and out, get your pets sorted as well - best to put them in a kennel for a while, and let's start decorating.
