30 DAYS OF FALL FRAGRANCE: WOOL SWEATERS
When I know I should be putting away the sleeveless tops and shorts, and my summer tan is fading rapidly, I’m always excited to pull on a new wool sweater. It’s officially autumn after all, once we flip to October on the calendar.
It’s such a great scent: that dry, warm, ever-so-slightly outdoorsy, woody essence of Merino. When it’s unearthed from the back of the closet, or from a cedar chest if you’re lucky, it makes one channel moments by the fire, playing in leaves, starting a first day of school. Even if it is a sunny, 25-degree Indian summer’s day, the smell of a cozy, wool sweater comforts.
