There’s something so wonderfully wintery about gathering around a crackling fire—the scent of a toasty hearth makes us feel rather nostalgic. So it’s no surprise that when the holidays roll around, we start craving the aromas of charred spruce, pine and birch.
Thankfully, we can get our fix with fireside candles, which can make even the most cramped studio apartment feel, and more importantly, smell like a rustic cabin. These woodsy scents harken back to fond of memories of our childhood and do more than just conjure memories of classic holiday traditions—they have the transportive ability to imbue your home with warmth and good energy.
So sit back and relax with a cup of hot cocoa that's exploding with superfoods, as we guide you through a winter wonderland, replete with snow covered forests, fresh bark and heavenly hearths. And by that, we mean our roundup of the most inviting fireside fragrances for the holidays!
