About Fragrance Day

When is Fragrance Day? This holiday is always celebrated on March 21

Don’t put up a stink about today, as it is Fragrance Day. This March 21 holiday is a scent-sational day. The olfactory nerves in your nose will enjoy the aroma of this special day. Ladies, in particular, will enjoy today because they just love perfumes. And guys, you’ve gotta admit that your gal’s perfume attracts you to her.

Perfumes have been in use for hundreds of years. In ancient times, they were used to hide body odors. At the time, baths were infrequent. After a few days, things began to smell less than ideal. Perfumes played an important role in making the atmosphere more palatable. Today, the daily shower eliminates the bad odors. But, we still like the smell and attraction of perfume. There are several methods of dispensing fragrances, including Dab-on, roll-on, and sprays. 

It is clear to us that the creator of this day created it to promote the sale of their fragrance products (See History and Origin below). However, we’d like to expand the intent of this day to include all kinds of pleasant fragrances and scents. So, let’s also celebrate items like detergents and cleaning supplies, hand soaps, scented candles, potpourris, room and auto deodorizers, and any other items that give off a pleasing scent.

How to Celebrate Fragrance Day

  • Celebrate today by buying some perfume or cologne for yourself, or as a gift for someone.
  • Try out a different fragrance. We recommend trying scents you’ve never used before.
  • Make sure to put on just the right amount of perfume or cologne. Overpowering perfume ruins the value of the fragrance to the “sniffer”.
  • Also, check your room deodorizers, and replace them with a new fragrance, if needed.
