Ok, let’s be honest guys, it doesn’t have to be Fall for us to want it to smell like Fall. It can be 110 degree outside and the smell of cinnamon-apple-coziness is always a great thing. I am not going to complain if I walk into a friend’s house and it smells like a rainy Autumn day. In fact I’m probably going to want to snuggle up with a blanket and some hot tea and forget the fact that summer even came.
And that’s why I decided I’d compile an awesome list of awesome scents that scream falling leaves and hot chocolate. So feel free to check out these awesome scent ideas and then head to the bottom to find the tutorial and let me know what you think!
