The Smell Of Spring…

with 2 comments

It’s winter.  If you’re from Chicago, like me, you’re probably getting to enjoy the lovely white (almost 2 feet of) snow we’ve gotten in the past week!  And if you’re like me, you’re hopefully trying to see the beauty of this snow, instead of getting upset over how much money you’ve spent on salt already! 

The houses are covered with what looks like fondant icing on a cake, while the evergreen trees look almost mystical as they carry the weight from the crystaling snow.  It truly is a breathtaking site to see!

However, if you’re like me, you’re probably wishing the smell of Spring would be hear sooner.  While we’ve got a few more months left to go before that happens, there’s still hope! 

While shopping at Carson’s the other day, this wonderful aroma took over as I rode down the escalator.  It smelled like Spring!  I couldn’t pin-point where it was coming from, as the perfume department was right below me.  

It wasn’t a perfume.  And it surely wasn’t the weather!  No, it wasn’t Superman either.  I had finally found it, a beautiful stand with an array of candles and potpourri.  Aaaaahhhh….Heavenly!

Let me introduce you to my new favorite scented candle.  The “Smell Of Spring” candle by Aromatique

This scent-sational collection offers several different sized jar candles and potpourri to bring home and relax those winter blues.  The votive jar candles I bought smell of spring flowers and hyacinth…and they burn for up to 18 hours

Go now.  Smell.  Buy.  And enjoy the “Smell Of Spring”! 

Not only is this collection perfect for Valentine’s Day, it would also make the perfect bridesmaid gift!
