How Does Your Christmas Smell Like?
More often than not, the Christmas season is characterized by everything wonderful to the eyes - from sparkling lights that illuminates the streets to giant trees trimmed with huge, colorful ornaments. Our eyes are always held in fascination in finding how majestically wondrous the familiar roads we go through everyday become during the holidays.
What's more amazing about this season is how the breeze changes as well. Just as Christmas looks different to each and every one, it smells different as well. Some Christmases smell of Toffee Nut Lattes and warm bread on a sunny morning. Some smell like hot bibingka and fresh sampaguita on a dewy daybreak.
But every year, we love the changing vibe of celebrating our favorite holiday through our sense of smell. As much as lights and music get us in the holiday spirit, here are some of the scents that personally reminds us of Christmas.
