Scents of the Seasons – What is your fragrance personality

As the seasons change, we tend to change our fragrance tastes to match. For example this Autumn Yankee Candle released The Woodland Road Trip collection filled with earthy, woody and sweet fragrance notes to transition us into the colder months. And as we can see from the new 2022 Yankee Candle Spring collection that is coming we know they’re going to wow us with soft, floral and oriental scents from the Sakura Blossom Festival Collection.

Fragrance choice says so much about your personality from the perfume we choose to wear to the scent we choose to welcome guests into our home and in order to choose a fragrance according to the seasons, it can be interesting to start with identifying your favourite season and realizing why you like it more than the others.
