It’ s funny – we spend so much time and energy decorating for the holidays, it’s almost easy to forget just how powerful fragrance can be. A time of year so hinged on tradition, our enjoyment of the holidays is fundamentally intertwined with our memories of holidays past, and nothing can trigger memory better that our sense of smell.
Close your eyes for a minute and think of the fragrances that you associate with the holidays. Is it cookies baking in the oven or hot mulled wine? Smoke from the hearth mixed with evergreen? I know – candy cane!
If you’re looking to celebrate some of the seasons most fabulous fragrances, these are our top picks.
