Peppermint Spray

Do you smell that? It smells like Santa! Of course St. Nick’s signature scent is peppermint. Just before the kids wake up, spray some peppermint-scented room spray or warm some peppermint oil. Pier One sells a Peppermint Crème Room Spray. Or visit your favorite discount retail shop for a special holiday scent like Glade’s Frosted Berry Kiss, with a hint of peppermint.
