Scent of the Month

October-The Great Pumpkin


References to pumpkins date back many centuries. The name pumpkin originated from the Greek word for "large melon" which is "pepon." "Pepon" was changed by the French into "pompon." The English changed "pompon" to "Pumpion." American colonists changed "pumpion" into "pumpkin."


The warm smell of pumpkin spice is a sure sign that Fall has arrived and Halloween is just around the corner.
