Peppermint smells like a Christmas village covered in snow. The icy, cool crispness of peppermint teases all your senses with a delightful tingle. It’s the perfect scent for visits to Santa, sleigh rides, and winter wonderlands.
The fresh warm scent of cinnamon is the perfect contrast to icy peppermint. Peppermint is for playing outside, while cinnamon reminds us of the joyful warmth we feel when we come in from the cold.
Nutmeg gives pumpkin spice its delightful aroma. Nutmeg is rich and woody, a perfect blend of sweet and spicy that reminds you of lazily lounging with your favorite people after a delicious Christmas dinner.
Fresh Baked Cookies
Nothing says Christmastime like the smell of freshly baked sugar cookies wafting through the kitchen. The scent of Christmas cookies fills the air with childhood memories and the joyful faces glimpsing the perfect white box wrapped with string.
Citrus & Clove
Adding a dash of clove to the refreshing springtime citrus smell transforms it into a magical Christmas aroma. Lemon and orange are ideal scents to combine with clove for a refreshingly spicy Christmas scent.
The unique scent of paper fills the air whenever you sit to wrap Christmas presents. Wrapping paper, tape, and bows all have that office supply smell, and when combined with other Christmas scents, create an unforgettable mixture of spice and books. As wrapping paper gets tossed about the floor on Christmas day, the entire house smells like a bookstore bathed in Christmas.
Gingerbread combines a variety of Christmas flavors into a deliciously sweet and spicy treat. The fragrant aroma of gingerbread includes hints of ginger, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar perfectly blended to fill the air with happiness and warmth.
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire represented Christmas long before Nat King Cole sang of their charm. The nutty aroma includes sweet hints of fruit as they roast over the fire or in the oven.
Christmas dinner often includes a succulent baked ham as the main course. The mouthwatering scent of tender ham drenched in brown sugar and clove permeates the air for hours before the feast, making stomachs throughout the house rumble in anticipation.
Warm, rich, and indulgent, hot chocolate has been the go-to drink for winter for decades. The delectable aroma of chocolate drifting through the air with a hint of marshmallow reminds us of returning to a warm home after an enchanting day out in the snow.
