Christmas Fragrance Trends 2018
Welcome to our wonderland of Christmas fragrances, tis the season so let’s get into the festive spirit and celebrate it with some with sumptuous aromas of home cooking to the smell of log fires on the crisp winter air. The aroma of winter is welcomed at this time of year, filling our homes with welcoming warmth on cold days. There is an ever growing market for home fragrances and scents that we love to be surround by over the Christmas season. Spicy Cinnamon, Orange or Pine cone fragrances are renowned as classic Christmas scents, however traditional fragrances are blended using more complex and enticing notes to create new inviting scents for the home. Festive fragrances are by no means limited to just traditional or standard types, so we have created our own Christmas home fragrance guide.. so that you can create magical aroma moments..
Perhaps the most classical of festive fragrances, our love affair with spiced scents begins as soon as the weather starts to turn in September, but as we all know the preparation of Christmas starts much earlier for us in the manufacturing business, so we are able to service the retail sector as the festive season begins. This tends to be earlier every year as we see the shops fill up with Christmas tinsel & decorations.. So planning is an essential importance, if you wish to make the most of the season.
Cinnamon & Clove have ruled the roost for favorite festive scents however as the industry has grown the fragrances have evolved for more discerning tastes. Cinnamon and clove are still key notes, however more spices such as ginger, cardamom and the ancient Christmas elements of frankincense and myrrh are now seen more frequently for an even more sumptuous take on festive spices. These notes are also frequently paired with woods or musk to create a rich, refined fragrance full of winter warmth.
Our Recommendations:- Winter Season (BEST SELLER!), Cranberry Orange & Cinnamon Explosion (BEST SELLER!), Applejack, Festive Gingerbread, Juicy Clementine
Woody notes of pine or spruce have long been firm Christmas home fragrance favorites thanks to their link to the aroma of fresh Christmas trees. Pine, spruce and fir tend to offer that classic Christmas tree scent with its crisp undertones, however log fire inspired scents which are gaining in popularity tend to have rich base notes of cedar, sandalwood and rosewood. Woody notes are excellent as standalone scents or are often used in many other Christmas fragrances as warm bases to ground the other notes. They can be perfectly paired with fruit, spicy or sweet notes to add a sumptuous, sophisticated air to any fragrance.
Our Recommendations:- Pine Cone, Shimmering Spruce & Peppermint, Winter Fireside, Bonfire
Fruit and Christmas go hand in hand, from the orange or clementine we get in our stockings on Christmas morning, to the candied fruits in our Christmas puddings and mince pies. The key fruit often found in festive home fragrances is orange as it has long been a symbol of the season and gives any scent a seductive tang. Often found alongside festive spices, fruits add a fresh, juicy hint to traditional seasonal scents which can be overbearing for many. Other fruits are also popular for Christmas candles and diffusers such as berries and other citrus fruits like lemons and mandarins all offering a tartness which is again refreshing rather than overly sweet. A perfect choice for those that love invigorating scents year round but still want a festive touch for their home fragrance as winter sets in.
Our Recommendations:- Blackberry Frost, Blue Christmas, Christmas Cake, Juicy Clementine, Frankincense & Black Cherry, juicy pomelo
Frosty & Fresh
Fresh festive scents have seen an influx over the past few years best described as frosty, an alternative aroma from the classic spicy, woody scents that are traditional and have dominated the home fragrance market for centuries. The reminiscent of fresh snow that glitters on the pavements in the winter sun and starry nights, frost filled fragrances are often infused with fresh citrus and cool spearmint. The celebrations continue with notes of prosecco & white wines which certainly add a sparkling edge to these types of Christmas scents making them ideal for festive parties and gatherings. Delicate floral’s are perfect for the transition into winter months.
