From my experience, most people you talk to will say autumn is their favorite season. Maybe it has to do with the fun holidays, colorful leaves, and delicious food. Or maybe it has to do with something more simple.
The scent and taste of pumpkin is almost synonymous with the season of autumn. Once September rolls around, everything begins to have pumpkin added to it. Lattes become Pumpkin Spice Lattes, pumpkins are set outside of people’s front doors, and they are baked into almost everything - from waffles to muffins. Why is pumpkin so popular?
I think it has to do with the comfort it brings. Personally, when I think of autumn, I feel warm and cozy inside. I’d assume most people feel the same. The funny thing is, a lot of people I know don’t actually enjoy the taste of pumpkin. It is actually the smell that creates the cozy ambiance many people associate with autumn.
For someone who doesn’t like the taste of pumpkin, but loves the ambiance it brings, what do you do? Capture the scent, of course! Like I have talked about previously, scent can subconsciously add so much to our lives. Whether it is in the form of a pumpkin pie baking in the oven or pumpkin coffee brewing, it will have the same effect on anyone who loves autumn - even if that person doesn’t personally enjoy eating it.
That’s the great thing about taste versus fragrance. Many people who dislike the taste of something may still love it’s fragrance. And that is why having the smell of pumpkin burning in your home in the form of a cute candle is the best way to capture autumn and give everyone the pumpkin experience they enjoy.
Even if you don't like the taste of pumpkin, I bet there is still something about it you like. Pumpkin candles also make great gifts! For all your friends who have fall birthdays, consider getting them a little jar of fragrance that will always bring them back to everyone’s favorite time of year. Here at Purveyors of Fragrance, we believe in capturing the little moments in life in the form of a scent. So why not do this for the season of the pumpkin too?
