Few things feel more like the holidays
than the aroma
of gingerbread, eggnog, and mulled wine wafting through the air. Scents have the power to evoke nostalgia—eucalyptus might make you recall the wreaths you had growing up, while dried citrus could bring you back to making potpourri with your grandmother. And who doesn’t have a childhood memory tied to freshly-baked cookies
This year, give your holiday ambiance an upgrade: Branch out beyond one-note decorations, and instead, consider something that stirs all your senses. In addition to being beautiful (which they are), aromatic embellishments just enhance the atmosphere so much more than their unperfumed counterparts. For us, there’s nothing better than walking into a space and seeing a gorgeous garland
... especially given the fact that as you step closer, you’re met with the merry aroma of cinnamon or pine.
