Air Wick Life Scents.
Breathe back the memories.
Scent is absolutely powerful. Among many things, it can evoke sadness, happiness, joy–utter nostalgia. There are many scents that immediately transport me to another time or a distant memory. For example, when I smell the aroma of the breeze after a rain storm. The petrichor–smell of the earth. It reminds me of my childhood and playing in puddles while holding my parents’ hands.
Or how the fragrance of vanilla makes me daydream and transports me to those late night phone calls and private IM’s between my now husband and I. The ear-to ear-grin, the butterflies and sweetness of a first kiss and the feeling of absolute happiness. I still get those butterflies all these years later and I still adore the scent to this day.
Now with that said, anytime I smell my mom’s cooking and baking all my senses come alive. Even now, at 31 years-old, I still love it. The experience of coming home to a home-cooked meal with the whole house enveloped in its aroma really shaped my childhood. Not only because it was delicious but because she took the extra love and care to provide for us.
Nothing Like Mom’s Baking.
My mother is the one who inspired my love for baking. She encouraged me to try new things, practice my baking skills and get better at it as the years have passed. Her specialty is quesadilla and while you may automatically think the white flour tortilla with tomatoes, onions, cheese and sometimes chicken—hers is quite the opposite. In fact, it’s a dessert and almost like a shortcake. I’d know the moment that I would walk into the house that she had been baking a batch.
I was thrilled every single time.
In fact, even in my adulthood, I sometimes pay her a visit and discover that she’s been baking. I’m enthralled. Now that I am a mother myself, I do the same thing for my girls. I surprise them with their favorite baked goods and let the sweet scent take over our home. Something I hope that one day, my girls will look back on. Maybe one day, they’ll think of my fresh-out-of-the-oven apple pie.
How appropriate that Air Wick has captured the essence of that same warm and nurturing aroma? Now you can unabashedly indulge in your precious childhood memories of your mom’s baking with Air Wick’s amazingly delicious creation of baked pear, pie crust, and vanilla bean notes.
I love how all three scents can be smelled on their own but, all together make one cohesive scent. One second you can smell vanilla, the next you capture baked pear and lastly, a pie crust. It’s a true to life fragrance experience: A technology that helps to experience fragrance in a whole new and real way that mimics true experience of the real world.
