Celebrating a breath of fresh air
International Fragrance Day is March 21, and while it may not be the most famous holiday on the calendar, it should be cause for celebration! Initially founded by perfume companies in the 1980s, the day has evolved to honor all the scents that give you those feel-good moments. Here’s how you can celebrate:
Stop and smell the roses — literally
Well OK, they don’t explicitly have to be roses, but you should remind yourself to pause and take in the scents of your environment. In the course of a busy day, our sense of smell often goes unappreciated — unless there’s a particularly strong fragrance (good or bad). Take a moment and breathe deeply. What does your space smell like? Is it comforting and familiar? Crisp and sterile? Utterly unremarkable? You may discover an aspect of your space you’ve never appreciated before, or one that you’d like to change.
Remember beloved fragrances
Think of a scent from your childhood — what memories does it stir? Is this a fragrance you still get to experience today, or is it hard to come by? Fragrances are one of the strongest triggers for nostalgia, carrying vivid memories with every whiff. At Scentsy, we know how meaningful this experience can be, which is why we’ve put together these handy fragrance families! Exploring these categories can help you rediscover scents that send you to your happy place.
You’ve paused to take in the perfume of the present and reflected on your favorite scents from the past — now it’s time to think about the future. Give yourself the gift of great fragrance, whether that means making a deliciously aromatic meal, getting yourself a bouquet of your favorite flowers, or stocking up on Scentsy Wax Bars! With a little forethought, you can make every breath a little burst of joy.
