Our senses are so keen with 'memory' that a simple scent can take you back to a distinctive time in your life. The scent of peanut butter and grape jelly sandwiches might remind you of your grade 1 lunch room. Opening a can of play-doh? Brings you right back to childhood. Scents can be used for other things too - they can be used to freshen up a room, or certain scents can be used to soothe and relax a person.
Bed Bath & Beyond is having a clearance sale on a selection of 7 scents in the ever popular Yankee Candles product line.
The scents you can choose from are listed below, with the link.
At first I was a bit disappointed when I noticed that many of the clearance scents are 'names' such as windblown, because I want to know the different scents behind the name but then when I clicked on each scent I was happy to see that they provide a whole breakdown of the scents.
For example, the Line-Dried Cotton description is: "A clean laundered fragrance with notes of dewiness and a light floral breeze adds a refreshing scent of cotton drying in the sun to your home."
The Crisp Morning Air sounds like it would be a clean and crisp scent to have in the home: "The Yankee Candle Crisp Morning Air Candles will infuse the crisp scents of eucalyptus and mint layered beneath soft hints of pear and sage into your home. This clean, invigorating scent will create a refreshing atmosphere."
You can choose from a variety of scented candle items such as potpourri tarts wax melts @ $1.99, votive candles @ $1.19, small jar candle @ $7.79, med. jar candle @ $14.99, and the large jar candle for $17.99 which normally has a value of $29.99!
If you're looking for a recommendation, the Red Raspberry one is really lovely. It's not too strong or too sweet. It reminds me of picking raspberries at my Grandma's house many years ago. It also reminds me of summers at home when my Mom makes us a nice big raspberry cheesecake with fresh raspberries. You really can't put a price on cherished memories.
