I told y’all last week about putting up my tree way early (the weekend before Thanksgiving) and even though it’s completely decorated I discovered something awesome that I just had to add to my already gorgeous tree—ScentSicles!
If you’ve never heard of ScentSicles you are definitely in for a treat—seriously these are cool! ScentSicles are fragrance-infused ornaments for your holiday tree and they are seriously awesome! ScentSicles help you bring the holidays to life with the smell of fresh-cut trees and cinnamon sticks!
We all have scents that trigger the holiday spirit in all of us—mine is the smell of hot from the oven sugar cookies (yummo)—ScentSicles provide an under-the-radar holiday cheer evoking scent day in and day out throughout the holiday season! ScentSicles can be hung from tree boughs, tucked into wreaths and garlands, or discreetly hidden throughout the house to provide the nostalgic scent of fresh0cut Christmas trees or the welcoming aroma of cinnamon!
We recently received ScentSicles fragrance-infused ornaments in Fresh-cut Fir to review and I couldn’t wait to give them a try! I’ve had a fake Christmas tree since I moved out on my own nearly 13 years ago, but growing up my mom and dad made sure that having a real tree was always a top priority each Christmas. Needless to say, I’ve been longing for a real tree and the amazing scents that it fills the house with, for years! So when I discovered ScentSicles I was eager to see if they trick my senses into believing that my fake tree was the real deal!
As soon as I opened the container of ScentSicles I was instantly transformed back to my childhood and those beautiful smelling Christmas trees that my mother insisted on having every year—it was amazing! The real test though would come later when my children got home—seriously they can smell a cookie crumb from a mile away! True to form, as soon as Taylor and Savanna walked in the door after school the first words they uttered were, “Mom what’s that smell?” and “Did you go get a tree without us?” I ‘m pretty sure that means that ScentSicles work just like they should! Since I’ve added the ScentSicles to our tree I’ve gotten so many compliments from visitors about how great they smell and how much the scent reminds them of a real Christmas tree!
