Certain scents are so much a part of our memories that a single whiff can trigger immediate and powerful reminders of another time. Cinnamon may remind you of happy times spent with your grandmother baking snickerdoodles. Roses may call to mind a certain romantic date.
You may not be aware of associating a certain fragrance with a specific memory, but you know vanilla makes you feel better somehow. That’s how entwined scents and memories are.
You can create a scent memory with help from Shutterfly and a personalized candle. Inhale deeply and let the crisp, clean scent of an evergreen forest take you to the mountains. Now, match a favorite photo to that aroma, one that you see whenever you glance at the evergreen or grapefruit candle. That’s how a scent memory begins and isn’t that a wonderful way to start a memory?
For many people, the fresh smell of evergreens stirs memories of Christmas trees and wreaths. That makes an evergreen candle an essential part of holiday decorations. You can include it in a fresh evergreen centerpiece for the holiday table or among the boughs on the mantelpiece and elsewhere.
Of course, not every scent has a memory attached. You may enjoy a certain fragrance for its own sake. Shutterfly offers a wealth of delicious aromas, including many favorites such as Grapefruit Blossom, Ocean Breeze, Garden Bouquet, Fireside Spice and more. You can pair complementary scents and use them in any room for a quick mood-booster.
Our candles are an all-natural combination of a soy blend and essential oils and come in a variety of vibrant colors. You can customize several candles for a charming display of family pictures in your home or gift them to a family member.
At Shutterfly, we recognize the important role scents play in our lives. You can get started today on a personalized gift or memento using our handy app and the tech device of your choice.
