~ 40 Years: A Gilded Celebration ~
Where Fragrance Becomes Art®
The Legacy of Aromatique
The Creator of Decorative Fragrance
The story of the “Smell of Christmas” began in a kitchen in Heber Springs Arkansas, when Patti Upton first developed the recipe for her signature concoction. She had been playfully challenged by a friend to create a product that would entice Christmas shoppers for her gift shop. Patti went home and gathered native botanicals, bark, nuts and mixed in seasonal spices & essential oils to create the first Smell of Christmas Decorative fragrance. At that very moment she empired a new product category in home fragrance and became an overnight success story. Now, 40 years later, the Smell of Christmas holds a special place in the hearts of our customers and remains our best seller. Our company is best summarized by the adage, “It’s not Christmas without Aromatique,” and this year we celebrate our 40th anniversary. We give thanks to The Smell of Christmas, our wonderful customers, and to Patti and her granddaughters June & Jordan, who carry on her legacy.
