Can we pause for just a moment today to talk about Fall and holiday scents? Because it is honestly one of my favorite parts of the season. When my daughter Courtney and I go shopping, one of our our favorite things to do is SNIFF candles. One by one, we SNIFF ‘em really loud and give our commentary on the scents as we go. Favorite way to spend our free time. We are weird like that.
I just love the scent of fall.
And I love the smell of Christmas.
I want my home to smell yummy like vanilla and cinnamon when I walk in the door.
I love the smell of baked goods like pumpkin and spice cakes.
I adore the scent of a wood burning fire in the fireplace.
I love to smell my gingerbread latte almost as much as I like drinking it.
I like to sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on top of my whipped cream. .
One of my favorite holiday drinks is simmering hot spiced cranberry cider on the stove with cinnamon sticks, cloves and orange slices because of how amazing it makes the house smell. Yes, soon I’ll post the recipe I use, because it is SO good.
We usually buy real Christmas trees so we can smell the fragrance of the tree throughout the house.
I’m really inspired by the scents of fall and the holidays.
So let’s share favorite holiday scents in the comments, shall we? What are your favorite fall or holiday candles and ways to scent your home? Do you have a candle warmer? Tell me what candles I should look for or what scent I should get for my candle warmer!
