The power of scent

Scents can evoke powerful emotions, conjure memories, and warm hearts. Certain seasons and holidays are associated with different scents and those vary from person to person. Cloves, mulled cider, crisp apples, pumpkin pie, rosemary, the pine of trees, firewood, hot cocoa, gingerbread… Even if you don’t have time to go apple picking, bake a pile of cookies from scratch, or roast a meal with fresh herbs, you can enjoy the smells of the season with candles. Can’t have a real tree? Don’t have a fireplace? Can’t afford a ski vacation? Bring the smell of blue spruce, a winter chimney, or hot chocolate by the fire home in a candle (or three).
