I’m the first to admit that I’m a big fan of the festive season. And one of the things I love most about Christmas is the smells. Spicy cinnamon, zesty oranges and fresh pine. Growing up my parents ALWAYS bought a real Christmas tree. And there’s nothing like the smell of those fresh pine needles that makes me feel all festive. Since this year I wasn’t able to get my own proper Christmas tree, so I’ve been making do with a mini one before I go back to my parents. And I have to admit that while I’m still feeling pretty festive, it’s not quite the same. I’ve tried scented candles, diffusers and all sorts. But nothing quite seems to capture that distinct aroma. Luckily, the clever folks at Neal’s Yard have tried to bottle that amazing Christmassy smell, and helping me get in the spirit! Made from Frankincense and clove, their Limited Edition Festive Fragrance room spray uses pure essential oils to help capture the scent of the season. It’s the sort of smell that makes you want to curl up by a roaring fire with a Dickens novel and a mug of mulled wine! Ok, so maybe I’m making do with a few fairy lights, but it certainly beginning to smell a lot like Christmas around here…
