So a few years I took the plunge and bought a fake tree. It is soooooo much easier, but I miss the smell of a fresh cut tree. I also keep my tree in our office and close the doors because Carter eats the (fake) berries off the tree. However, this leads to a stale smell from the rug in the office that permeates the room. Sorry, TMI and totally gross, but true.
However, today I came across something that solves both of my problems (the lack of fresh tree smell and the stale air) – Scentsicles. I wish I was being paid for this endorsement, but I just wanted to share the love.
These are scented ornaments that you put in your tree and they let out a smell that is amazingly close to the smell of a fresh cut tree. I got mine at Lowe’s for $7ish, but they are available online here. Then, at the end of the season, you just throw them away.
You will love them!
