‘Tis the Season – Popular Holiday Scent Trends for the Year

With just a sniff, it’s easy to tell that the holidays are just around the corner. From home air freshening products to perfume and more, there is a wide range of holiday-inspired scents available. This year, the biggest holiday trends are back and better than ever. Let’s take a quick peek at some of the biggest holiday-inspired scents of the season and the many ways that they are being used.


First of all, it would be impossible not to look at the spicier side of holiday-inspired scents. In particular, pumpkin spice (and its many variants) is a delicious fragrance that can be used in various ways. With notes of clove, cinnamon, and vanilla (to name just a few of the ingredients that go into its creation) pumpkin spice can be the perfect way to freshen up a space with a scented candle and bring a little bit of holiday cheer into your home.


However, it’s not just pumpkin spice that is making its way into people’s hearts and homes. Other food-inspired fragrances can be found in everything from hand lotion to room deodorizers, allowing people to whet their sweet tooth on vanilla cupcake candles, gingerbread cookie car fresheners, and much more. From cinnamon and apples to rich, buttery rum aromas, there are a thousand and one different ways to bring food fragrances to the forefront when crafting delectable aromas for a multitude of uses. Why not play around with scents such as caramel apple, banana bread, blueberry cobbler, and cranberry this holiday season?


Another regular favorite, scents that bring to mind the homey scents of the holiday season are another big trend to look out for. From the warmth of a crackling fire to the piney scent of evergreen trees, there is a variety of fragrances that have plenty of holiday appeal. Of late, many more people have tended to favor esoteric aromas that combine different aspects of the holiday season, such as crisp mountain air, evergreen, and smoke, so there are plenty of ways to craft unique fragrances while keeping in line with these traditional favorites as well.


In other words, there is no shortage of ways to celebrate the holiday season through fragrance products. From the spicy side of life to the rich, warm scent of apples and more, there is an aroma for everyone.
