Sugar and spice, and everything smells nice
[ ahh... holidays smells ]
Our sense of smell is closely linked with memory, probably more so than any of our other senses. The holiday season brings a plethora of smells certain to remind us of happy times.
Perhaps it's the spicy combination of cinnamon and oranges on a Thanksgiving table... or the comforting and sweet smell of brown sugar or vanilla wafting from the kitchen...
Bottom line, we love the feelings of warmth and contentment that accompany our favorite holiday scents.
