30 DAYS OF FALL FRAGRANCE: CINNAMON
Like vanilla, cinnamon is near universally loved. As a spice, it’s the decadent detail in all manner of cooking, from apple pie to a sweet-and-savoury comfort-food tagine. And if you haven’t done so before, use a cinnamon stick as a straw when indulging in a fresh mug of hot cocoa or mulled cider. Amazing.
For us, cinnamon is quintessentially autumn. One whiff and we’re craving all of our cool-weather comforts.
Its burnt-orange hue, curled bark structure and scent make is a charmer. And there’s also its therapeutic benefits – it’s purported to reduce inflammation, fight bacteria and possess antioxidant powers. All that, in addition to its spicy and sparkling, dark and moody perfume.
For us, it wouldn’t be fall without a good measure of cinnamon scenting our kitchen and our space.
