These fragrances bring back long-loved memories, favorite rituals, and more.
– KEYS SOULCARE
Let’s be honest: scent-based self-care tops our list of always-worth-it soulcare rituals. But, it’s not just their power to connect us to the present moment that we love. It’s also the way scents transport us back to those moments that soothe us on the spot.
We tapped you, our beloved community, to share which scents evoke the brightest vibes — from warm and fuzzies to all-out elation. Here’s what you had to say:
“Maple chai… it’s grounding and very comforting 🥰🍁.”
“Here in England, autumn is a bit humid, and sometimes I love to take a walk in the woods. So, the very first smell that puts me at peace and ease is the scent of morning dew on fallen leaves and grass. (But also, hot chocolate and cinnamon buns 💜.)”
“I like the smell of monoi in summer and, in all seasons, I like floral scents. 🌼🌷🌺 Currently, I wear the perfume 1 Million by Paco Rabanne during meetings. Thanks for asking me, it touches me a lot! 🙏”
“I love vanilla and anything else that makes a scent very relaxing and grounded. It hits this sweet, soft, [and] delightful spot when inhaled and exhaled, and takes you [into this] spiritual dimension of LOVE and care.”
