There are many things that go into creating a memorable holiday, most importantly being surrounded by friends and loved ones. Decor can delight and enchant but fragrance brings everything together and creates lasting memories that can be triggered when you cross that scent again in years to come. Do you remember your Grandma when you smell apple pie? Or your Mom when the scent of stuffing fills the air? Pick a fragrance to enjoy at the holidays and the memories will come flooding back every time you enjoy that scent again.
Here are our top picks for fragrances that will compliment and enhance your Thanksgiving Day festivities:
Nest Wild Oats & Bourbon candle
Wild oats and mandarin ginger are blended with the essence of bourbon.
This fragrance will seamlessly blend with the aromas of your Thanksgiving Day dinner. The inspiration for this scent was Laura Slatkin's stuffing (and from what I hear she's quite the gourmet cook). This unique blend is warm, rich and comforting to make anyone feel right at home.
Aquiesse Cinnamon Tabac
Gifts of golden cinnamon gently dusted over warm vanilla, with hints of sweet aged tobacco, summoning memories of the glow from a stone fireplace.
If you like a fragrance that is more spicy and bold, try Aquiesse Cinnamon Tabac. The cinnamon spices are softened with hints of vanilla that contrasts with the unexpected notes of tobacco. This fragrance is sure to make lasting memories for everyone that enjoys the holidays with you.
Votivo Winter Cranberry
Creamy vanilla and musk muddled with earthy balsam and amber essence, topped off with ruby cranberry jam and a twist of cassis extract - the perfect holiday cocktail.
This fragrance is very earthy and woody for a more grounding atmosphere. Notes of cranberry and cassis will keep everything lively but not too sweet or overwhelming. This is a great complimentary fragrance if you like something more fruity without the bellyache.
Nest Wasabi Pear
Anjou pear and fresh, ozonic watery notes are infused with the essence of wasabi.
We spend Thanksgiving down in Florida with my parents. When the weather is warm, I like a lighter scent that is a little more fun and bright and that is exactly what the Nest Wasabi Pear candle is like. It's bright and quirky as the touch of wasabi keeps the pear from getting too sweet. This fragrance also works well after dinner to lighten the mood if you go with something more heavy and cozy during dinner.
Nest Pumpkin Chai
Wild pumpkin, spicy masala chai, cardamom, ginger, and cinnamon.
You can't go wrong with Nest Pumpkin Chai. It is by far our best selling fall fragrance. Not too sweet or too spicy, this candle will compliment any Thanksgiving gathering. The eye-catching orange box, translucent brown vessel and glowing orange wax also make this candle the perfect hostess gift.
Autumn leaves, wild black currant, crushed nutmeg and sweet apricot comfort with feelings of family and memories of home.
If you like a warm, spicy, comforting scent but aren't ready to dive into Aquiesse Cinnamon Tabac, try Trapp Hearth. It's everything fall in a harmonious blend.
Those are our favorite picks for Thanksgiving Day. What fragrances do you enjoy when you gather with friends and family?
