Nothing has the ability to bring us back to a time or place quite like a fragrance can. The memory may be tied to the smell of your grandma’s garden, or baked bread from your favorite cafe. Fragrances can trigger a wide variety of vivid memories.
Not only can fragrances bring back memories, they can also take you to new places. This easy solid perfume project uses Neroli & Shea Blossom Fragrance Oil to transport you to the city of Rome. Part of our Roman Holiday series, this fragrance features notes of bergamot, lime, jasmine and cedar.

What scent or smell brings back a strong, vivid memory for you? Personally, the smell of hospitals brings me back to making the rounds every weekend with my Dad when I was young. Because of this, the smell of hospitals is connected to a lot of happy memories!
