2011 Scented Calendar Gift Idea

Check Out This Cool Olfactory Calendar

Here's an elegant idea: a calendar composed of scents. Luxe Paris perfume brand Quintessence has just introduced Le Calendrier Olfactif 2011 ($727), which comes with a wall calendar and a specially designed fragranced candle for each month of the year. Each candle is supposed to reflect the month it stands for, and each was concocted by a different artist, ranging from designers like Azzedine Alaïa to hair master Frédéric Fekkai. It's an absolutely gorgeous concept, though laughably out of my price range. But as a belated holiday gift or a housewarming present, coming up with an olfactory calendar of your own could be a fun and thoughtful gift. If you were making one of these, what would you have different months smell like?
