Christmas is a time for nostalgia and tradition. The aromas of cinnamon, peppermint, and pine are truly a hallmark of the holiday season that bring back fond memories. Get that clean pine scent with these simple home additions that will keep the spirit of Christmas in the air.
How to Get the Fresh Pine Tree Scent on your Artificial Christmas Tree
There are several ways to get that strong fir scent into your artificial Christmas tree. While most garden wreaths, garlands, and winter trees already have this natural smell, the scent of pine is actually easier to get on fake trees. You can easily give your holiday centerpiece that wonderful scent by simply selecting from a range of fragrance options:
Wall diffusers create an aroma throughout your home with just a little bit of oil. Place them discreetly behind your realistic artificial Christmas tree and leave your guests in wonder. Advanced models are silent, and require just a few drops of oil and a free outlet to work their charm. Some wall diffusers have controls that allow you to adjust the duration and strength of the pine fragrance.
A variety of pine-scented incense sticks are available in the market. The beauty lies in their simplicity—just light them up to easily spread their aroma throughout the room. Incense sticks usually come in sets and can last for about 25-30 minutes of burn time per stick. Matching pine cone incense holders add realism and a rustic touch to your home décor.
Fragrance sticks are a great alternative if you want to avoid burning or if you prefer a subtle scent. Simply arrange the sticks within the bottle and enjoy the aroma. They typically last about 2.5-5 months depending on usage.
Tree Classics recommends Scentsicles, scent sticks that are hung on the branches of your tree, wreath, or garland to make them smell like freshly cut pine. Each stick comes in a subtle green color, while its crisp, delightful aroma lasts for 30 days.
Scented candles come in varieties—from evergreen to frosty pine to woodland spruces—the choices are unlimited. If you don’t like the idea of an open flame near your tree, place the candles on an elevated platform like a tall shelf or your fireplace mantel.
Oils & Sprays
Oils and sprays instantly transfer that evergreen fragrance onto your artificial tree. A few quick sprays of your favorite Christmas tree scent can evoke holiday winter magic in your home! Easily apply them to every room in the house – don’t feel limited to the space around your tree. Oils work well with a candle that can bring out that pine scent via heating, or with ornaments that can be hung on garlands or wreaths.
Enjoy the holidays with your beautiful artificial Christmas tree that smells as fresh as newly cut pine. They’re wonderful gifts for someone who is fond of the scents of nature, or for those looking for that perfect fragrance for their home.
