My husband and I recently stood in the “smell good” aisle (as he likes to call it) at the local store, trying to agree on something. We agreed that we wanted some air freshener for the house since I have a very sensitive nose and we have two kids, two cats, etc. We debated on the various delivery systems and settled for one of those “sprays every so many seconds” thingies. You just hang it on the wall and set the interval and it does all the work. Then we got to the hard part: choosing a scent.
“How about this one?”
“I like this one. What do you think?”
“Too pungent. It makes my head hurt.”
“Too… outdoorsy? What is that, pine? I don’t like it.”
*sigh* “Well then, what do you like?”
“I like this one. It smells homey.”
“It smells like food. I will be hungry all the time.”
That last one repeated several times as I picked several food scents. What can I say? I like food.
Anyone else have these conversations?
We eventually settled on an apple cinnamon smell. I love it because to me it smells like warm ovens and Christmas lights and love. It makes me feel cozy, like being wrapped in a hug.
What is your favorite scent and what how does it make you feel?
