Best Christmas fragrances
Ho, ho, ho… It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas! That crisp, cold scent of snow in the air combined with the delicious scent of roasting chestnuts and mulled wine, the welcome warmth and aroma of an open fire beside the Christmas tree– these Christmas fragrances are bound to put anyone in a festive mood. But then there are the not-so-nice Christmassy aromas– like your mother-in-law’s burnt, blackened turkey and her overpowering perfume.
Whether they’re nasty or nice, these 12 Christmas scents are definitely a familiar guest during the holidays. There’s no need to let the stinky smells ruin your holiday buzz however; just spritz away the nasty odours with Febreze’s festive Christmas scents and have yourself a merry little Christmas! Santa would definitely approve.
Who doesn’t love the fresh pine scent of a lush, green Christmas tree? Christmas pine tree scent brings back memories of festive family moments and conjures up images of sparkly Christmas lights, happy carollers and of course, Christmas presents!
Crisp, clean and so bitingly cold that it makes you clench your teeth, the smell of snow is one of the best things about winter. The wet, slushy stuff may not be much fun, but there’s just something about its fresh, cold scent that makes us turn our faces to the sky and sniff at the air.
There’s nothing like the sweet, comforting scent of hot chocolate to warm the bones on a cold day. The deliciously chocolatey smell of it is like a snuggly blanket for your senses – it’s bound to cheer up even the grumpiest Grinch. Why not add more Christmassy flavour by adding cloves and oranges to your hot chocolate!
Men, cookies, houses… why can’t everything be made out of gingerbread? That fresh out of the oven gingerbread scent – sweet, buttery, gingery, spicy – is simply irresistible and always draws a crowd. Are you a Christmas gingerbread fragrance fan? You’ll like Lenor Vanilla Sparkle – it’s just
A crackling, roaring fire on a cold, snowy night has to be the definition of bliss. Woody, smoky and warm, the scent of an open fire invites you to hold your palms out to share its warmth while you breathe in its hot, comforting smell. For those of you that don't have an open fire but want to experience the atmosphere of a crackling fire, why not light a Christmas fragrance candle instead? The Febreze spiced apple candle is our favourite!
No Christmas fair is complete without the scent of roasting chestnuts wafting through the air. Sweet and nutty with that unmistakable hot charcoal scent, these steaming morsels smell like a good ol’ fashioned Christmas.
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the fruity, spicy aromas of Christmas cakes and Christmas puddings are as Christmassy as Santa’s red and white suit. There’s something comforting about their darkly sweet, brandy-tinged scent, as long as you don’t have to break a tooth trying to bite into Aunt Shirley’s rock-hard version.
The sweet, hot spiciness of cinnamon is a smell of Christmas and festive ingredient in all things Christmas. Whether it’s in mulled wine, cookies or eggnog, its warm, inviting scent makes everything seem cosier and merrier – perfect for those cold winter nights. Cinnamon sticks and dried oranges are also frequently used as Christmas decorations around the house, adding a extra touch of Christmas spirit to your house. If you love the smell of Cinnamon why not treat yourself to a Febreze Spiced Apple Plug In!
This fruity, spicy, festive scent combination is as traditional as they come. The intoxicating aroma of clove-studded oranges instantly brightens up those long winter nights, and it does wonders to freshen up a cold, stuffy space.
Although most Christmas fragrances during the festive season are nice, not all the scents are that pleasant. Brrr… the smell of wet clothes is enough to make anyone shiver! Damp, musty and increasingly stinky, the odour of sodden sweaters seem to linger on, much like your mother-in-law on Christmas Day.
Get rid of that damp stench with one of Febreze’s Christmas scents. (It won’t work on your mother-in-law though.)
Baby, it’s cold outside… so it’s no surprise that all windows are firmly shut against the freezing temperatures! It does result in stuffy, airless rooms that turn everyone into a Grinch though – not ideal for Christmas. Freshen up those spaces and perk everyone up with Febreze Apple and Spice.
Synonymous with disappointment and gnawing hunger pangs, the acrid smell of burnt turkey is the odour of every Christmas cook’s nightmares. To make the humiliation even worse, the smell insists on sticking around long after the evidence is binned. Oh, the shame!
Don’t let a blackened bird ruin your Christmas – spritz the smell away with one of Febreze’s Christmas scents and move on to the puddings.
