The Scent of Christmas
I know that I can't walk by a Crabtree and Evelyn without immediately thinking of my grandmother.
And when your sniffer is as strong as mine, the past is always visiting. In fact, I have a tendency to smell smells that nobody else in my family can. And this is really crazy... I dream smell.
So back to the point of this post. The scent of Christmas.
Evergreens, peppermint, a burning fireplace, oranges, Christmas dinner, spices, snow, hot chocolate, baking cookies.
I could keep going, but instead I'll tell you what the scent of Christmas is for me... if you haven't already figured it out by now.
It's a mixture of evergreens, oranges, cinnamon and cloves.
Oh, how I love this scent! I can smell it anytime of the year and it suddenly becomes Christmas time.
So tell me, what does Christmas smell like to you?
