Cones and Oranges


Vancouver, B.C., December 6, 2017

Have you ever had an experience where a certain smell brings back memories? That crisp, cold scent of snow in the air combined with the scent of roasted almonds, mulled wine and gingerbread.
The Christmas season has started, once again. These 5 festive fragrances sum up the spirit of Christmas for us. Ho, ho, ho... hope they take you down Christmas memory lane.

1. Pine

The Christmas tree, the centerpiece of every family’s living room at Christmastime, its smell of fresh pine just has to bring you back to those festive moments when you unwrapped your presents. This soothing but fresh smell spreads through the whole car once you have loaded it with the Christmas tree of your choice. 

2. Cinnamon

Nothing screams Christmas more than the sweet, hot spiciness of cinnamon. 
It is one of the most common smells during the festive season as it is in nearly all the good Christmas food and drinks — mulled wine, cookies, eggnog and Christmas pudding. No matter which time of the year you smell it, it always brings you back to that thought of a cozy Christmas evening by the fire or visit to the Christmas market. Are you a cinnamon fan? You’ll love our cinnamon incense.

3. Gingerbread

Another nicely fragrant and very effective memory aid is the smell of freshly baked gingerbread houses, cookies, and men...why can’t all men be made out of gingerbread?
Gingerbread is the perfect baked, holiday-season goody with its sweet, buttery, gingery, spicy fragrance — no one can resist.

4. Oranges and cloves

We probably all used to make these with our grandmother — oranges studded with cloves. The fruity and spicy smell is probably one of the most traditional scents to tickle your nose. Instead of having sore thumbs from making them, why not use our orange incense instead?

5. Fire

The Christmas season, with its crisp, clean and cold snowy evenings (if you're lucky, sometimes it tends to be rain instead), lets us all get cozy around the crackling fireplace. The woody, smoky and warm scent of a fire just wants us to gather around and enjoy its warmth on our bodies after we a Christmas walk outside.

Turn your faces to the sky and sniff the air!
