Scents of the Season: Winter

You know the phrase, if you can’t beat them, join ‘em? Well that’s sort of how I feel about old mother winter. Truly, the weather outside is frightful but the scent of winter is such a cozy one! Fresh fir, fires, wreaths, winter berries and snow. Divine! But if we’re being real here, we all know that “snow” is traditionally unscented. :)

The smell of “Christmas tree” is intoxicatingly holiday. If I could, I’d have a real tree inside my house all year round. Instead, I put up a fake one right after Thanksgiving and take it down in January. But with Slatkin & Co.’s Fresh Balsam candle burning, you’d hardly know the difference. This candle truly makes the house smell like fresh pine in the best possible way. I stockpiled this scent on a Black Friday binge at Bath & Body Works!

Tocca’s Tahoe Candle, exclusive to Blue Mercury, evokes that feeling of cozy ski lodge in your own home. It’s got that crisp, wintery pine smell I love so much. With this candle burning and a cup of hot chocolate (with marshmallows please) in my hand, I feel like I’m enjoying life at a higher altitude.

In nearly every room of my house, I have a Wallflowers scented oil diffuser plugged in somewhere.  And I’ve got Winter burning fresh! Winter captures the spices of the season perfectly and really makes my home smell great. I love stashing these in rooms that don’t get a lot of air flow, like the basement.

What scents are you loving this season? I’m always interested to hear what those in warmer climates have to say too. Do you love the smell of winter too?

    I’m just like you-I have a wallflower in every empty plug in my house too. I like the B&BW Winter Garland candle .

  2. Wallflowers rock! I have a red scent–LOL I think it’s Winter Apple? I love the smell of pine too, that’s why I always like a fresh tree even if the needles are a pain to clean up!
