Easter scents

Happy Easter one and all!

Chocolate, roast dinners, hot cross buns and simnel cake. All of these food products are key things that we can associate with Easter day. The rich warming scent of chocolate, the irresistible aroma of roast dinners, the essence of a hot cross bun and not to mention the delicious scent of a simnel cake.

All of these scents can easily transport me to an Easter memory which is a fascinating thing about our sense of smell; we can detect “at least one trillion distinct scents”.

Easter also brings with it a change in the smells outside, from new flowers growing, to the grass being cut and the blossom growing on the trees. All of these incredible natural smells enhance our day to day life and so it would be interesting if you could comment on any specific smells or aromas which remind you of this time of year?

Happy Easter everyone and happy scenting!

Spring Scents

Good evening one and all!

I am happy to announce that it is starting to look like spring has finally sprung! Yes, I am beginning to see changes all around me; sunny days, longer daylight, daffodils and much more. Not forgetting the scents that are changing around us too.

If we cast back to autumn I published a blog on scents which remind us of Autumn, this can be found here. I would like to do the same now for spring!

I feel as though spring brings with it a range of new scents and smells. One of my favourite which I have previously blogged about has got to be freshly cut grass. Spring brings around the opportunity to start gardening and this often entails mowing the lawn. The scent of freshly cut grass is one which I feel is rich and relaxing; do you have any thoughts on this scent?

Another scent I would like to mention with spring has got to be the flowers; daffodils has got to be the main one. The possibility to bring this scent into your household too means spring can be smelt wherever you go!

Finally we cannot forget chocolate! With Easter falling in the spring months means the prospect of indulgent smelling chocolate.

I would love to here your thoughts of the the scents of spring so please leave some comments!

Happy scenting
