With Christmas just around the corner, there is nothing more festive than lighting some seasonal scents or inserting some potpourri into your space.
Adding seasonal scents to your bedroom can affect your mood as it moves throughout the day and also make it feel cosy and festive.
To introduce some festive joy into your bedroom this season, the team at Sleepeezee recommend the following notes:
Often used as standalone scents, woody notes make up the warm base notes of many Christmas fragrances. Pairing woody scents with spicy or sweet notes add a sumptuous, sophisticated air to any fragrance.
If you’re looking for something warmer, traditionally cinnamon is the most popular of the warm festive scents. However, as fragrances have evolved, spices such as ginger, cardamom and frankincense are now more frequently enjoyed within a festive candle. Pair these warmer notes with woody notes or musk to create a rich, refined fragrance.
Vanilla and caramel scents are often the buttery base of candles. Combine vanilla scents with spices to create the mouth-watering aroma of sweet Christmas cookies baking in the oven.
Peppermint is another great scent to get you in the holiday mood as it gives the sweet minty scent of candy canes. It will also help relax your mind and soul which is a necessity during the holiday season.
The peppery sweet scent of bergamot orange is the fragrant fruit of the citrus bergamia. You may be familiar with the fragrance as its commonly used in earl grey tea. Combined with sweet mandarin, its fruity hints of mild spice are popular for providing a warm aroma.
