Christmas Aroma - There is an abundance of delightful scents around the holidays, and each seems to elicit fun memories and happy feelings. This year, we are not having my parents come for Christmas, so I’ll be surprising them with a care box. In it, I’ll be including a little bit of Happy Holidays Fragrance, so they can smell those spicy warm notes of cinnamon and clove and feel as though they have been transported back to our house as they’re making cookies and opening presents. This is absolutely my favorite time of year, and many smells bring the best sort of memories to mind. These are some of the scents that inspire me.
Candy Cane Christmas Fragrance
First is Candy Cane Christmas aroma, a sweet, minty holiday fragrance that smells like the decadent joy of eating a candy cane.
But for me, it’s not just eating the candy that I enjoy every year, but making little reindeer out of them. Years ago, my daughters started doing this for their teachers and friends by twisting brown pipe cleaners into antlers at the top of the cheerful white-and-red striped canes and gluing on pom-pom noses and googly eyes. It’s a tradition that still continues today. So, for me, those peppermint notes of Candy Cane Christmas smell like creative fun and little girl giggles and never fails to bring a smile to my face.
Winter Woods Fragrance
Then, of course, there is the tree to decorate. Winter Woods brings the crisp, refreshing scent of pine and fresh snow, like so many years of decorating with a real tree. It reminds me of going to a tree lot on a chilly afternoon, where the air is filled with the fresh smell of pine and picking the perfect tree. Then, bringing it home and watching with excitement as the net is cut and the branches splay out in their full glory.
After bringing the loveliness of it to life with a few strings of lights, there’s nothing like playing holiday music as you unbox all the ornaments from years past. One of the things I enjoy most is seeing how excited my daughters get when they recognize an ornament that holds a fond memory for them and how eager they are to share the story, even though it’s likely one we hear every year.
Now, as many others have, we have switched to a fake tree. The lure of instant lights, a base that needs no adjusting and no water bowl to keep pets out of, is just too irresistible. The wonderful thing about Winter Woods Fragrance is that it brings back that crisp pine scent to our house and makes it feel like we have a real tree again. Just one that is way easier and doesn’t require constant vacuuming.
To me, Winter Woods Fragrance smells like a bundle of amazing family memories from the past that roll into the present, time and time again, every year. And like having a real Christmas tree without all the mess.
Happy Holidays Fragrance
Then there is the Happy Holidays Fragrance. This is my particular go-to scent overall for the holidays. The underlying aroma of gingerbread from the cinnamon and clove recalls those fun, silly baking sessions with my family as we make several types of cookies. The gentle notes of pine give our Christmas tree even more magic. This fragrance is the perfect accompaniment for wrapping presents, baking cookies, having holiday parties (bonus: all those great compliments you’ll receive on how good your house smells) and then, of course, the anticipation of Christmas morning. Once I breathe in the familiar scents of spice, pine and citrus, I know it’s officially Christmas, and my family does too.
Happy Holidays Fragrance smells like time-honored traditions and the excitement of seeing how happy those you love are with the gifts you’ve carefully selected for them. It’s mulled wine and spiced cookies and an overall sense of warmth when the outside is chilly.
To me, it’s the epitome of the holidays.
Regardless of what Christmas aroma you choose* for the holiday season, I hope it is as happy and filled with many joyful memories. Happy Holidays!

Scenting While You Travel - Recently I took a weekend getaway from my normal routine. I don’t always travel well because I don't like long drives and hotels. I needed something to make the long drives and hotels more tolerable. I discovered scenting while you travel has many benefits! We have over 300 different kinds of odor receptors in our nose, and they can identify and remember about 10,000 different scents. Scent is a primal sense that can help us avoid dangers like a gas leak or spoiled food, and it also gives us pleasure, like smelling your favorite flower, morning coffee or the scent of your favorite person. But, how do I do it while traveling?
The Answer is the Scent Machine - Travel
Scenting while you travel is a great idea, but how do you do it? I used Aroma Retail’s Scent Machine - Travel which runs on its own rechargeable battery and is ideal for use in traveling. It is small enough to fit in a standard cup holder and strong enough to scent your hotel room. I used Nobu’s Lemon Ginger and it made the car and hotel room smell wonderful. It's amazing how much of a difference it makes smelling something that sparks a rush of positive memories. It changes your mood almost instantly and makes long drives and unfamiliar places seem friendlier and more welcoming. It certainly worked for me!
It was the mid-2000’s when researchers truly began to understand how the sense of smell actually works. Scientists Linda B. Buck and Richard Axel won the Nobel Prize for their work decoding the sense of smell. They discovered that, aside from the nose, odor receptors are also present in your liver, heart, lungs and even your skin, and that they may even help our various organs and muscles heal.
Obviously, scenting while you travel can enhance mood and rekindle positive memories and emotions, so why not indulge on your next trip? Check out Aroma Retail’s Scent Machine - Travel and a complete list of fragrances and take them with you on your next road trip. Safe travels!
Having Trouble Concentrating?
Scenting for focus and a clearer mind might be as close to hand as your favorite home fragrance. At Aroma Retail, we want to make sure you’re getting the most out of home scents like eucalyptus. After all, if making your home smell great can also help you concentrate better and feel good overall, wouldn’t you want to know?
Energize Your Life
When is the last time you woke up ready to take on the day? Stop hitting the snooze button or setting multiple alarms just to start your day! Eucalyptus is an amazing energy booster. Set your diffusion machine to start scenting your home around wake-up time, keep a reed diffuser in the bathroom where you get ready, or light a candle before you hop in the shower.
Starting off fatigued and sluggish is no way to give your mind the best chance at a productive, creative, mindful day. The scent of eucalyptus can help put you in the mindset for success.
Clear Your Mind
You may have heard of using eucalyptus to help clear up the sinuses during allergy and cold season. Did you also know that eucalyptus based fragrances can clear your mind, stimulating, and improving your ability to focus? If you find yourself daydreaming at work or the kids have a hard time concentrating on homework and school, try diffusing a home scent that features eucalyptus.
Eucalyptus Scenting for Focus
