Scents of Summer

This weekend I walked out into our garden and was overcome with memories of childhood summers that have long since passed. I tried to figure out what the trigger had been.

The sun was shining but that wasn’t why.

The sky was blue but that wasn’t it.

Then I realised that it was the smell of freshly cut grass!

In my mind, that scent brought back memories of childhood days, laughing with cousins and running barefoot through garden sprinklers over crisp, green, freshly cut grass on swelteringly hot African summer afternoons.

Scents of Summer

Different smells evoke sensory memories of summer for each of us.

Perhaps it’s the smell of suntan lotion on a sandy beach, the smell of marshmallows roasting over a crackling fire on a warm night or the smell of pool chlorine that permeates your skin after so many happy hours of swimming that your fingers look like raisins!

Summer is a time to relax, play and reconnect. There is a way to bring that same feeling into your everyday life through fragrance. A strategically placed reed diffuser or candle can fill your home with that same feeling of endless summer.
