Scents of the season... Spring

Fragrance is part of creating a beautiful home and each season brings with it its own olfactory wonders. I always associate spring with floral scents ~ lilacs, hyacinth, daffodils. Then there are the "fresh" scents of spring activities ~ the smell of laundry after it's been dried on the line, and the first bit of freshly cut grass. While I always enjoy flowers and we leave the windows open quite a bit as the weather gets warmer, which lets the smell of freshly cut grass waft in on the weekends, I also like to switch up my candle scents each season.
There are many wonderful candle makers out there and I often try new ones, but I always find myself returning to Yankee Candles. I just prefer how strongly they smell and how well and long they burn. Some of their new spring scents include Fluffy Towels, Garden Hideaway and Pink Lady Slipper ~ all of which I can't wait to sample. They have a Lemon Lavender scent I'm going to have to try as well.
What spring scents do you love?

I am linking to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper.


  1. Oh I want to try the fluffy towels one as well.

    I love lilac and lavendar a lot for spring. Anything that's fresh and airy.

  2. I am right there with you on thinking fragrance is a delicious way to beautify our homes.

    Year-round, I use a Scentsy home fragrance system. They are wickless fragrance tarts, which burn in an electric warmer. I tend to use the bakery scents...blueberry muffin, lemon pound cake, cinnamon bun, etc. But they have a sweet pea/vanilla that is out of this world. Lots of sweet pea fragrance, but mellowed a bit by the vanilla. Pure heaven!!

    Have a great day,

  3. Love the lilac photo! Lilacs are one of my favorite scents.

  4. Without a doubt, lilac is my favorite Spring flower scent. Line dried bedding is my favorite "fresh" scent.

    I saw those new Yankee Candle scents last week (when I was buying my new umbrella at the "banned store".). I'm hoping to receive one (or two) for Mother's Day. :)


  5. I'm so happy that I went out and clipped a bunch of the lilacs before the rains. Their fragrance just fills the house. Perhaps you'd like to link this or another post to Seasonal Sundays for Mother's Day.

    I appreciate your comment on my Royal Wedding Breakfast Part I and thought you might like to know that Part II is up now.

  8. Your lilacs are beautiful! Ours have bloomed and are done for this year. Lemon Lavender sounds like a wonderful candle... might see if I can find one:@)
