SS logoWhen we arrived home from vacation, I had the most wonderful box of goodies awaiting from ScentSicles.

If you haven’t heard of them, ScentSicles are the first scented ornaments that make any Christmas tree smell like you’ve trekked into the woods and cut it down yourself.

ScentSicles scented ornaments bring the magic to the season by allowing Christmas enthusiasts everywhere to have all the convenience of an artificial tree but with the real-tree smell so many of us desire.  It’s true – no messy pine needles but still the real tree smell that makes it feel like Christmas!

And the ScentSicles are so easy to use. Just hang on your tree, inhale the wonderful fresh-cut tree smell, and relax knowing that there aren’t any pesky needles to clean up. ScentSicles holiday scents include: White Winter Fir, Christmas Time Spruce, It’s a Wonderful Pine, SnowBerry Wreath, and Two Dashes of Cinnamon.

ScentSicles offer the following products:

  • ScentSicles Table Ornaments – the ultimate housewarming gift!  Better than a candle and always “on”, this festive jar filled with holiday scents is a safe way to infuse the home with the smells of the season…without the flame.
  • AutoSticks – the annual holiday trek to Grandma’s house wouldn’t be complete without the smell of Christmas for that car ride.  Just hang a ScentSicles Autostick from the rearview mirror or hide under your seat, and let the memories begin!
  • Decorative Ornaments – one of the most popular holiday traditions is decorating a Christmas tree.  Enjoy new decorative ornament designs including gold and silver glitter.  Beautiful and fragrant!
  • Scented Sprigs – go from Grinch to Cindy Lou in a flash with the aroma of perfectly sized smaller ScentSicles ideal for tucking in a wreath, placing in a tablescape or hiding in a mantle display!

I’d noticed ScentSicles in a few of our local stores a month or so ago, so when the opportunity arose to review their products I jumped at it.

I can’t say enough about how much I like the scents and the ease of use (my idea of a perfect combination!).

As a special holiday surprise, one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a ScentSicles Gift Package! The gift package includes ScentSicles ornaments, AutoSticks and their new table ornament!

Just post a comment below about your favorite scent of the season to enter!

During the holidays I like to fill my home with scents that accent the season.

From candles to soaps, it is all about making this cozy and inviting. Some of my favorite products come from Bath & Body Works and Yankee Candle.

winter spice soapWinter Spice Vanilla  from Bath & Body Works is a great soap scent for the kitchen. Warm and soft and wonderful.

candy cane bliss soap

Another good choice would be  Candy Cane Bliss.

holly berry wreath

For the bathrooms, I like Holly Berry Wreath.

vanilla bean noel

Vanilla Bean Noel is a great lotion choice to have on hand for guests to use because it has a light, warm fragrance that isn’t overpowering, yet still offers a hint of holiday cheer.

spice candle

One of my favorite, favorite candle fragrances is Spice from Bath & Body Works. It makes me nostalgic and wistful.

red berry candle

I also love Red Berry & Cedar from Yankee Candle.

home for holidays candleHome for the Holidays is a scent that makes you think of Christmas Eve at Grandma’s house. Old-fashioned and delightfully wonderful.


pomegranate cider

Pomegranate Cider is a fresh and updated scent that still has a lingering hint of Christmas past.

cinnamon twist

And my latest find from Yankee Candle is their room fragrance twists that smell divine. The Sparkling Cinnamon was my first choice!

However you decide to scent your home for the holidays, remember to stick with one main (and predominant) scent or your house will smell like a batch of potpourri gone bad. Look at the description of your scent and find the strongest scent then look for scents that accent that, not compete with it. Or just go with the same scent throughout your home.
