We associate scents special scents to special occasions. and during the Christmas season we definitely associate many things that wake up our olfactory sense and remind us of wonderful childhood times during the holidays. Number One on our list of the ultimate christmas scent is the Christmas Tree. That almost spicy citrusy woody smell of evergreens trees is the reason many brave the pointy needles of the tree that give us ouchies and refuse to get the fake ones. The fact they have poured this intoxicating fragrance in diffusers and candles and air fresheners is testament to just how much we love it.
Then there is the smell of peppermint candy canes. Not only are they delicious and we love walking around with them hanging from the corner of our mouth like a delicious extension to our face, but they make fun ornaments. Ornaments that don’t make it through the end of the season, but ornaments no less.
Cinnamon is the other smell that give us the warm and fuzzies of the holiday. we find them in our drinks, in our desserts, in our potpourri, as a special tough to our decor, just everywhere.
The smell of baked goods, especially the smell of freshly baked gingerbread. First of, YUM, and secondly, nothing says welcome or feels as cozy as the smell of delicious cookies right out of the oven. and they are especially fun to decorate, and eat. We like starting at the leg when we munch on the gingerbread men.
The fun part of being in a flower shop during this season is being engulfed in all these scents. Our centerpieces full of winter evergreens, pines embellished with cinnamon sticks and candy canes make our days dreamy and festive.
