Tis the season for giving and this year fragranced gifts are proving more popular than ever – and not just traditional candles or bubble bath. Whilst the Jelly Bean iPhone case – featured in the top five stocking filler gifts on the tv Christmas special of The Gadget Show (27 seconds into this link) – may not be to everyone’s taste, a number of more traditional fragrances will immediately evoke the festive season.
From fresh pine needles on a Christmas tree and woodsmoke from a roaring winter fire, to the warm and fruity notes of spicy mulled wine, it really is the season for engaging all the senses.
Here’s our pick of our favourite seasonal smells – what’s yours?
- Clementines and satsumas
- Winter spices, cloves and nutmeg
- Pine trees
