Favorite Holiday Room Fragrance Or Candle?

Recommended Posts

Not Your Huckleberry

Oh man, my favorite time of year for the smells alone. I'm a total fragrance nerd, I love balsamic, woodsy and other similar stuff, and that stuff is always en vogue this time of year. I go to Marshall's or TJ Maxx once a week, at least, just to browse for new soap scents. I have a nice backlog of awesome soap, shaving stuff, etc. to last me until we finally make the trip to Mars. 

I have issues. 

Anyway, what's your favorite way to scent your home this time of year? I'm talking actual fragrances, not just having a natural Christmas tree or holly around the house. I want a great piney, woodsy scent that doesn't smell artificial but has good staying power. 

I have three candles going right now ; peppermint bark, sandalwood and myrrh and fresh pine & balsam.

Scented candles produce a number of harmful chemicals, some of which can cause lung inflammation and even cancer. Incense is no better and has been linked to lung inflammation and upper respiratory cancers. If you enjoy scents, use essential oils, or create some natural ones (like the orange peels and cinnamon above).

My favourite home scent is fresh air. At Christmas I like fresh pine and spruce.

As a teen in High School I went on a tour of an antebellum home in Mobile, Alabama.  It was decorated as it would have been for Christmas during that period and on the mantles there were oranges that had been spiked with whole cloves.  As they aged, the scent they gave got stronger and it has since become my marker for the way a holiday room should smell...along with the scent of pine or fir trees.

Another for sandalwood (it even sounds like a holiday!), and also Ylang Ylang.

I like candles in my house this time of year that smell like Pumpkin Pie.  It reminds me of Thanksgiving.

Apple Cider, Cinnamon Candles, Peppermint,  Pine from the Christmas Trees, and of course the cooking done in the kitchen during the holidays.
