Love is in the air!

Valentine’s Day is a time-honored day dedicated to love, one that has been celebrated since medieval times with comfits, poetry and of course, flowers. However, it was not always as easy to procure objects to prove one’s adoration for another as it is now. Today, we have the good fortune to be met with the pink or red cards declaring one’s affection and heart-shaped boxes of chocolate at your local grocer, as well as boutique flower shops that craft the most beautiful bouquets.

Personally, it’s the latter I enjoy most. I’ve always appreciated walking into a florist and breathing in that fresh, clean scent of newly cut flowers, their blossoms of carnation, rose, tulip and so many more, all mingling into a sweet background.

Flowers were not always cultivated as they are now. In medieval days, one used what could be found in their gardens or what grew in the countryside. These would be bound up into a lovely nosegay to be presented to a lady love. In Europe, flowers were popular but not always easy to grow in the cold climate. And so, a hothouse with many glass windows was invented, first by the Dutch and then adopted by the English.

These hothouses weren’t like the greenhouses you might think of today, which are entirely comprised of walls and a roof of either large panes of glass or plastic. These were large buildings with many rows of multi-paned windows along the walls to let in ample sunlight. So even in cooler climates, the inside would remain temperate for plants to flourish.

I can only imagine how glorious it must have been for people to walk into those first hothouses. They would experience the joy of smelling all those flowers at once—heady rose and lavender, the delicate perfume of tulips and carnations, the underlying earthiness of rich soil. All those scents would have been enhanced with the warm, humid air inside. These hothouses were usually made with alcoves and benches built within so the owner could savor the immersion of such floral fragrances at their leisure.

If you’ve ever heard of orangeries, these were hothouses designed specifically for citrus plants, which would otherwise not grow in colder weather. The brisk climates made oranges a delicacy and might do well for a Valentine’s Day treat.

Not only were oranges and perfectly cultivated flowers rare, depending on what was grown in a hothouse, but they were also extraordinarily costly. This was due to the fees incurred in creating the hothouse building itself and caring for the plants. The Window Tax, which was first introduced in 1696, also contributed. A tax was charged annually for each window in a building. Because of these hefty fees, hothouse flowers were generally only available to the very rich.

In addition to being very expensive, one had to be attentive to the type of flower sent, as the meanings behind the bundled bouquets were taken very seriously. For example, you would not want to send a yellow Chrysanthemum, which implied a slighted love, or a purple hyacinth, which meant sorrow. A red rose implied love, but a crimson rose was to be sent for mourning. You see how this could get terribly muddled.Flower Shop Scent by Aroma Retail

Fortunately, today aesthetics carry more weight with bouquets than their flower meanings, and they are affordable enough to be at your local grocery store. No matter where you purchase them, the best part of a lovely bouquet to declare your love is that wonderful, clean floral perfume.

If you or your loved one enjoy flower shops as much as I do, you can not only grab a fresh bouquet but also bring home the wonderful scent of that shop! The Flower Shop Fragrance from Aroma Retail perfectly blends the gentle notes of tulip and carnation with the sweetness of rose and the cleanness of lavender and eucalyptus for the dewy, refreshing aroma in your own home.

Wishing you all a wonderful Valentine’s Day!




Meditation Scent - The Mood Collection: Calm your mind and focus your intentions with the new Meditation fragrance from the Mood collection at Aroma Retail. Make setting aside time for yourself pleasure with home scents created to support your mindful practices.

Whether you're starting a new habit or just looking for ways to prioritize your health, creating a peaceful environment that relaxes all the senses may just be the positive reinforcement you need to get started and keep going.

An Enlightening Home Fragrance

Getting is a Zen state of mind that takes more than just finding a quiet place. If you've ever participated in a guided meditation, you were probably asked to focus in on a tranquil place that made you feel happy and relaxed. The guide alternately brought your attention to lapping waves or crunching leaves beneath your feet and reminded you to breathe.

Our new home fragrance, Meditation, grabs your attention with Bergamot, Ginger, Cardamom, and Coconut. Relaxes you with Blue Iris, Lavender, Violet, Leaves, and Cedar. Grounds you with Sandalwood, Balsam, Amber, and Cashmere Musk.

It's like a guided meditation partner helping you focus on the here and now for a more open mind and deeper inner connection.

Why Meditate?

Scenting your home, office, car, and even yourself is so personal and pleasurable. The important connections between your memories and the aromas around you can be a powerful tool in creating and sticking to healthier habits. But what's so great about meditation?

According to the Mayo Clinic, meditation has been practiced for thousands of years, and only recently are we able to see the many benefits of this complementary mind-body medicine scientifically.

A Deep State Of Calm & Relaxation
A Clearer, Tranquil Mind
Better Focus
Newer Perspectives On Stressful Situations
Stress Management
Deeper Self Awareness
Reduced Negative Emotions

Scenting Your Meditation Space For Success

So, taking the time to align your chakras is about more than just clearing your mind of the jumble of thoughts and information it is bombarded with each day. It's a mind, body, and emotional health tool with many benefits. Give yourself the best chance of success in your new mindfulness practice with Meditation, an ambient scent with inner benefits.

Mental Checks, On The Go

As you grow more and more used to the thoughts, breaths, and movements that help you calm your inner noise, you can learn to transport yourself back to those peaceful places, and the right scent can help. Our meditation fragrance can go anywhere you need it.

If you know a stressful trip is coming up, bring along a travel diffuser. Spritz your car with our fine mist room spray before you leave for a big interview or on your way to pick up an important client.

From candles for your prayer closet to reed diffusers for the home office to whole-home diffusion machines that can reach every inch of your yoga studio, we have a solution to support you.

Share That Peaceful Feeling

The world can seem so chaotic. According to Harvard Medicine, the art of meditating can actually push back against unhealthy fight or flight responses that contribute to mental, emotional, and physical illness.

Halloween is one of my family’s favorite holidays, and of course, trick or treat is a large part of that. I’ve taken our memories over the years and plucked a few from my childhood to put together a little Halloween story of a night of trick-or-treating to help us all recall those happy memories. Breathe in the sweet, delicious scent of Trick or Treat by Aroma Retail, an enormous inspiration in this fun piece, and enjoy.

It’s Halloween, and you’ve waited all year for this moment, this night of disguises and sugar-filled indulgences. The sun sets slower this night than any other until at long last, it’s finally time to go!

You forgo the round pumpkin containers with their weak plastic string handles. Experience has taught you those are insufficient for the hoard of treasures your neighbors will bestow upon you on this glorious night. Anticipation floods your veins as you scurry into the night like the demon you’re dressed as. This is beyond the time you are allowed outside. There is something wonderfully taboo about being given the freedom to run about unfettered so near the witching hour.

You join your friends, and the excitement in crisp, cool air electrifies with intensity at your shared goal: a mass consumption of candy from Trick or Treat.

The first house has its light off, so you bypass it. Not only is the light on at the next house, but glowing ghouls and goblins dance in the darkness as if they too are excited for the changing of the season. You hold out your cloth bag and joyously shout, “Trick-or-Treat!”

This is where the magic happens. Candy in small, brightly colored packages descend by the fistful from a massive bucket of bounty, directly into your bag. Waxy red twiddlers, the autumnal gradient tones of candy corn and golden wrappers of chocolate that catch the bits of light—these all fill your bag in a mix of crinkling wrappers and the solid knock of thinly wrapped lollipops cracking against one another.

And the smell… Sweet confection, fruity flavors of skittles and gummy worms, velvety chocolate that will melt in your mouth, a prickle of sugary citrus that will tease the back of your tongue. You can’t help yourself and immediately unwrap an orange Tootsie Pop and thrust it into the cheek of your mouth while you continue with your plunder.

On and on, the night goes from the house with adult beverages for the grown-ups to the home that once passed out full-sized candy bars. They only did it once, years ago, but you never stop hoping for a repeated show of such generosity. Through it all, your bag gets heavier. An inventory runs in your mind, tracking the tally of your favorite candy, calculating the ration of “parent tax” from that stash, and all the while wondering how much you’ll be able to get away with eating.

Finally, you get home and dump out your bag to revel in your riches. The ambrosia scent of mingled candy floats around you in notes of sugary citrus and melon.

You reach on the top and pluck out a pack of gummy LifeSavers, ripping the top off the plastic wrap. The aroma of the married fruitiness of it all is so strong now that it pinches the back of your jaw and makes your mouth water. After all, this was why you walked the length of three neighborhoods.

In a gluttonous move that you’ll never regret, you toss your head back and dump the contents of the pack into your mouth. There’s an explosion of cherry, lime, lemon and orange, all sticky-sweet and heavenly. Ahh, the sensory overload of Halloween!

And this is just your first bag.

Enjoy your Halloween, everyone—and surround yourself in Aroma Retail’s Trick or Treat scent and experience the joy of Halloween all month long!
