There is no better time during the year to spruce up your home than the holidays, and nothing brings holiday decorations to life like a few festive scents. We’re all fans of reliable favorites like pumpkin and gingerbread, but there are a few others that can be surprisingly festive and complimentary during the most wonderful time of the year.
One of the most important things to remember is to keep your holiday scents subtle to avoid overwhelming your friends and family. Chances are your oven will provide just as many amazing holiday smells as a candle or bowl of potpourri, so filling up your kitchen and any adjacent living areas with holiday scents can be overkill. This is especially true when your stand mixer is whirring with all the sweet and treats of the season and the aromas of cookies and other baked goods start to fill the air. That pumpkin candle simply won’t stand a chance.
For a holiday party or special dinner with your closest friends and family, subtle scents like Trapp’s Fresh Cut Tuberose or Thymes Frasier Fir candles for the kitchen and surrounding spaces are key. These festive scents provide a beautiful addition to the season’s celebrations without overpowering or clashing with other décor. There’s also something very memorable about unique, signature scents not always found in the home goods aisle of your local supermarket. These expertly crafted and perfectly balanced scents will provide rich, lasting memories for your friends and family for years to come.
Don’t toss that toasty gingerbread or apple pie candle just yet. Save strongly scented candles for your guest room nightstand, open-air patios, or an outdoor kitchen. SampleHouse also carries flameless fragrances in the form of diffusers and melts, providing a variety of ways to spice up a room! These classic scents are truly treasured, and blend perfectly with open areas. Add a cozy throw blanket and a pair of warm socks to your guest room along with a comforting candle to really make guests feel at home.
Strategic placement of scents during the holidays are a simple way to add a personal, creative touch to your home. Aromas have a powerful ability to capture our attention and scented candles from SampleHouse can become the perfect opportunity to showcase your holiday spirit!
