Scents of the season... Winter



Fragrance is a simple pleasure and part of creating a beautiful home ~ after all, beauty should delight more than just the eyes. Each season brings with it its own olfactory wonders. My favorite winter scents are peppermint, balsam/cedar and cookies baking. There's something about peppermint that smells like winter to me ~ fresh, clean, cool. I like the balsam/cedar scent especially around Christmas, when the tree is up. And the scent of cookies baking ~ either real or from a candle ~ seems to warm the house during winter. Mmmm...
What are your favorite winter scents?

  3. I agree peppermint is a refreshing scent. I love plain old vanilla ice cream even in the winter. Have not tried the peppermint.

  11. I also love cinnamon - one of my favorite scents for the fall and winter. I also love the smell of pinyon incense, but haven't been able to find any for a while.

    Your post is lovely - it awakens the senses.

  13. Did you make the ice cream? I bought the ingredients to make some this year but the time slipped away! I guess it is not too late and I need to use up those peppermint candies! It looks fantastic.

    For me, smells bring back a host of memories, and I love the smells of Christmas too.

  16. My ultimate winter scents are cinnamon, citrus, and cloves. I like to smell them the entire winter. I had never thought of peppermint. Hmm... I like the taste so I probably like the smell.
