Do you ever feel like the smell of a particular spice really speaks to you? There’s certain spices that draw us in, lift our spirits, and seem to drastically transform our surroundings. It almost doesn’t matter if you like the way that spice tastes or not… it’s all about the scent. For example, I absolutely love the smell of rosemary – but the taste is only okay, as far as I’m concerned. I love the taste of turmeric, but I am not so sure about the scent. In fact I am sure – it’s terrible.
I definitely have a set of spice scents I gravitate towards, and they tend to be very soft and sweet scents. I love vanilla bean and lavendar. I also like spicier scents for my home, especially in the fall and winter. When the weather gets cold, I love the soothing scents of cinnamon and cloves. For cleaning, I love fresh citrusy smells – especially orange rind .
I recently read a magazine article linking spices to personalities, and I think there’s something to that. After all, scent is a big part of our identities and who we’re attracted to. There’s a reason why companies offer a variety of scents to choose from. Thinking about scent and personality led me to write What Spice Is Your Soul? If you have strong opinions about scents, then you’ll want to take this quiz. You may find out that your favorite spice fits you to a ‘T’ … or discover a new scent that you should get into.
