I’m a scent girl, I always have been and I always will be, there is nothing I love more than walking into a house that smells delicious. I’m constantly burning candles, oils or Scentsy. Scents have this way of bringing you back to a different time and place. I think the best smells in the world are smells that are organic, the way your parents house smells, the scent of your newborn, the way it smells when the seasons are changing. Just the other day I stepped outside and the first thing I said was “it smells like winter”. B stepped outside and said the same exact thing.
I’ve always enjoyed scents from nature like fruits (Cucumber Melon has always been one of my favorites)!
Cucumber Melon reminds me of when I was younger and my Dad’s cousin used to babysit me, her daughters used to wear this scent and then wanting to be like my big cousin I started wearing it. It always brings me back to the days of running around with all the other kids and following my older cousins around which I’m sure they loved
Another scent I love is lemon! I wasn’t always in love with the way lemons smelled, but now I totally am!
It all started I believe when I got pregnant with Mason, for whatever reason, I was obsessed with all things LEMON!! I LOVED using it in my foods to cook with it and I love lemon scented things like candles and cleaning supplies! I don’t know if it’s because I’m still nursing or what but I never got over my lemon kick. I love pouring lemon juice and lemon pepper seasoning over my vegetables and pastas with lemon, garlic and wine sauces. To me lemons just signifies everything fresh and clean, not to mention it’s GOOD for you!
Another scent that I love and that can be found in nature is the smell of Gardenias!
Gardenias are pretty much the only flower scent that I really really enjoy. For the most part the scent of flowers reminds me of funerals, I know that’s awful but that’s what I think of! Gardenias on the other hand smell sweet and remind me of the country side.
