When you think of the holiday season, there’s probably a specific scent that you associate with the time of year. Perhaps the holidays make you think of the scent of gingerbread wafting in from the kitchen, or the fresh evergreen branches that filled your living room every year. Maybe you’re taken back to stringing dried oranges into garlands, or baking fresh sugar cookies with your mom. We all have a scent that takes us back to the holidays, and there’s nothing like the perfect candle to make that scent come alive in your home all season long.
