Scented Products are the Latest Craze Among Older Kids: Here's Why It's Trending.

Scented products have always been popular, but recently they have become particularly trendy among tweens and teens. From scented candles and room sprays to body sprays and perfumes, scented items have become a staple in the lives of many young people. So why do tweens and teens love scented things so much? Let's break it down:

  1. A sense of identity

For many tweens and teens, scented products help to create a sense of identity. By choosing a particular scent, they can express their personality and individuality, which is blossoming in these formative years. For example, someone who chooses lavender as their signature scent may be seen as calm and relaxed, while someone who prefers a fruity signature may be seen as fun and outgoing. Scented products are a way to help young people fit in, as they can bond over shared scents and products.

  1. Emotional benefits

Scented products can also have emotional benefits for tweens and teens. Different scents can have different effects on mood, such as peppermint being energizing, and vanilla being comforting. This can be particularly helpful for young people who are experiencing stress or anxiety. Using a scented product can help them feel more relaxed and calm, which can have a positive impact on their mental health.

  1. Aesthetic appeal

Scented products also have an aesthetic appeal for many kids of this age. Products like scented candles and diffusers can add an elevated decorative touch to a room, while scented body sprays and perfumes are coveted and collected among friend groups. Using scented products can also make young people feel more confident and attractive, which is important during the often self-conscious tween and teen years.

  1. Cultural influence

Finally, cultural influence may play a role in why our kids are obsessed with scented things. As we're sure you've seen, it's all about wellness and self-care these days, which has led to an increased interest in aromatherapy and natural scents. Social media also plays a role, with influencers and celebrities promoting scented products and creating a demand among their followers.

At the end of the day, it's all about finding individuality, a sense of self care, and a way to bond with their people. And of all things they can get into these days, we'll take it!
