Next to Christmas, Halloween is one of the most sensory holidays of the year. We light candles, bake cookies and generally lap up Autumn in every way possible!
However, how many of us think about enhancing our fancy dress or event with a fragrance? For example, the imagination can be heightened greatly by adding a smokey musk scent to your Werewolf costume this Halloween! EcoScent have a fragrance named ‘Witches Brew’; a perfectly sweet and mysterious scent fit for the cauldron itself. Or how about a clinical Menthol scent to set the scene for a doctors and nurses party? You could even have your guests make spooky candles to take away as favours! Due to the olfactory system’s close relationship with the part of the brain that stores memories, your guests are sure to remember your evening whenever they get a whiff of their candle!
Along with major events, some Theatres have begun to use fragrancing as part of the experience- you can hear the action, see the action and now smell the action too! Imagine walking into a dimly lit theatre set of a pumpkin patch and smelling the familiar fragrance of pumpkin and chestnut. This simply helps the audience connect to a story even more.
So think about perfume this Halloween! Will you wear a scent with floral notes or smokey musks? Will you light a specific candle or choose a new fragrance for your diffuser? We’d love to know how you’ll be celebrating!
