The fragrance of pumpkin in the fall

The fragrance of pumpkin in the fall

By Deborah Fulsang


Autumn brings with it the harvest, Halloween and Thanksgiving. And with that, pumpkin.

We crave it this time of year. In a freshly baked pie spiked with cinnamon and nutmeg and a dollop of whipped cream on top, or roasted with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of ground pepper and sage.

Of course, many new converts come to pumpkin via the great pumpkin patch known as Starbucks, with its limited-time-offer pumpkin loaf, and its Pumpkin Spiced Latte – PSL now for those who find voicing those three words simply too taxing.

No matter how you like it, savour it. Roasted, it’s a quintessential fragrance of the season. And that colour;  you can’t get any more of-the-autumn-moment than orange.

Her long-held love of fragrance led her to launch The Whale & The Rose, a destination for all things perfume-related. Now, when she indulges in a crazy-expensive bottle of fragrance, she can do so guilt-free. Well almost. It’s all in the name of research after all.
