How to pick a Thanksgiving Fragrance

Chances are scents such as cinnamon, ginger and cardamom will be dominant. Think then of wearing a fragrance that are spicy and have as their primary notes these scents. Vanilla based fragrances also pair well with scents that permeate the home. Finally, you may even wish to go in the opposite direction and wear neutral scents that will not clash with strong Thanksgiving Day aromas.
