star Tree Smell/Scent - Where To Get Some?

We used to be die hard LIVE tree people. Until the past two years. We purchased artificial trees. However, the only thing I really do miss, is the smell.

Where would one find tree smells in a bottle? Or any Christmas time smells? I mainly want that good tree smell. Open to suggestions or ideas.

I have been thinking of fragrance oils as an option since there are quite a few vendors around, however I have never tried them and don't want to get stuck buying junk. So, if anyone has tried some, please let me know!

last year I found a Yankee candles that was the closest I have come to the smell of a tree. I can't remember the name now, but it was a dark green candle in a jar. I will try to post the name of it, when I get my candles out for Christmas,,,,,,,,,which will be early for sure.

I think I found the candle you are talking about. It's called Balsam and Cedar. It has a picture of a tree with pine cones on the front. I have plans on purchasing some along with Christmas Cookie on ebay to check them out. Maybe some tarts and candles or whatever combo I can come up with.

Appreciate the info. I just don't want to use candles because we have cats that love to snoop. So I think it will be fine with a hot plate.

Does it smell like a Christmas tree? I just don't want to buy these products blind and not like it. 20 bux is a bit spendy for oil, but if it's what I want, then that price is null

There is not a "trial" size

As far as I know it smells like a Christmas Tree. It has orange, cinnamon and spruce oils combined. Or they have just a pine scent or a spruce scent. I've heard good things about the Christmas Spirit.

I know quite a few people who enjoy the scent of making their own potpourie with Christmas scents.

Myself, anytime I want to smell pine trees, I grab a roll of Scotch tape. It makes me think of Christmas every time. I'm happy to report that I haven't been banned from any stores that carry it yet, but I do get some strange looks when I'm caught smelling it in store aisles.

The one I have that smells exactly like a Christmas tree is Yankee's Christmas Wreath. I used to burn it in my office and people thought my tree was real.

LOL! It's nice to know that I am not the only who does this.
