National Fragrance Day is essential in helping to transform new fragrances into experiences. Celebrated annually on the 21st of March, the day focuses on how fragrances have a deep connection with our memory, by creating a connection between our mind and sensory organs. Now people celebrate national fragrance day to rejoice over all the fragrances. The reason this is important is that people will remember scents. The mind and sense of smell have a deep connection. For example, humans associate springtime with flowers, rain, and soft earth. Research has proved that the Hippocampus, a part of our brain responsible for retaining memories, is close to the olfactory bulb, a rounded mass of tissue that contains several types of nerve cells involved in the sense of smell.
The ways of celebrating this day depend upon your general hobbies and taste. It is a day to celebrate by bringing flowers home or lighting scented candles. Some social media influencers celebrate by posting heartfelt pictures online and #nationalfragranceday.
And if you’re looking for a new signature scent, National Fragrance Day is the day to shop for one. In tandem with the occasion, some brands release fresh scents that’ll seem just right for 2023. After all, nothing can lift your spirits quite like a new fragrance.
Discover the best new fragrance releases and celebrate National Fragrance Day by adding one to your cart.
So on March 21, celebrate your love of all things fragrant with National Fragrance Day.
In the light of a pure sky rising over the city ascends the elegant silhouette of 724. Urban landscapes and their surrounding architecture overtly influenced the graphic aesthetic of this musky floral eau de parfum. Luminous, vibrant and comfortably addictive, 724 invites you to feel the city rhythm. In the top notes, a fresh, urban accord is perceived. It is the sensation of clean, energizing freshness, formed of bergamot from Italy and the verticality of aldehydes with sophisticated, slightly metallic, effervescent facets. At the heart of this fragrance lies an airy aura conveyed by a bouquet of flowers structured by jasmine absolute from Egypt, sweet pea and mock orange. In the base notes, this universe of whiteness surrenders to an enveloping, comforting sensation thanks to a sandalwood and white musk accord. Maison Francis Kurkdjian -724 Eau de parfum.
