Thanksgiving is right around the corner and what better time to find the perfect fall fragrance to compliment all the wonderful scents of cider, cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus and of course… pumpkin pie? But have you ever wondered how fragrances can be paired with a delicious meal during the fall holidays? We did, and I think you’ll be surprised at what we discovered.
Givenchy’s Dahlia Noir is an elegant combination of fresh citrus and romantic rose with a hint of carnal amber and vanilla, perfect for ladies. It pairs exquisitely with lamb chops, braised chicken or grilled salmon alongside a Rose wine to perfectly compliment the fresh notes in this light, floral-fruity fragrance. Note: This particular pairing was a fan favorite among my fellow co-workers and partners in crime, Holly, Mary and Kassi.
For the gentlemen, Acqua di Parma Colonia is an elegant choice distinguished by citrus top notes blended with spicy aromatic accents and woody base notes. Staying true to fall aromas, this fragrance pairs seamlessly with duck or chicken accompanied by your favorite red wine.
Now for my preferred part of the meal, dessert … and compatible with anything from an almond soufflé to a layered cake, lemon bars or pumpkin cookies, is a simply “Irresistible” fragrance of the same name by Givenchy, certain to end your night on the perfect note.
I hope these suggestions help you get started on hosting your own Fall Festival pairing with your friends. And if you do, let us know how it goes!
