Scents of the Holidays

Have you ever been back to visit a place where you’ve previously lived? I was recently in California for my brother’s wedding and decided to make a quick detour on my way back to the airport at the end of my trip. I stopped by the apartment that my husband and I lived in when we first got married. It was a tiny little place. If you opened the dishwasher, you trapped yourself into the kitchen. And there was a little drawer that couldn’t even open because the fridge stuck out too far and got in the way. But it was a perfect place for us to start out.

We had a little Christmas tree there; it was even shorter than me, but it was a real tree, and it was ours. Mostly we’ve gone the artificial, pre-lit route since then, but I still love the smell of a real Christmas tree. Every Christmas growing up we had a real Christmas tree that we decorated on Christmas Eve. Even still, my mom lights a favorite pine candle every season.


The new Glade® BE AT PEACE™ scent, which has notes of balsam fir and juniper, reminds me of all that together. Aren’t memories wonderful? I love how that smell takes me back to my own excitement of Christmas as a kid, and even that first Christmas as a married couple.

Now I get to create memories like that with my kids. This will actually be our first Christmas here in our current house; we moved in back in February. So while I’ll be rearranging some decorations, (we have a fireplace with a real mantel in this house!) and searching for the best place to set up our Christmas tree, we’ll still make gingerbread houses, decorate sugar cookies, drink hot chocolate and sing Christmas carols. The different cozy scents of our home will someday transport my kids back to this time, and I hope it makes them smile and feel loved too.

Any one of these crafts or treats could be a fun addition to your holiday festivities:

Which Glade® scent will set the scene for your holiday celebrations this year? In addition to BE AT PEACE™, look out for the rest of the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection. I was able to find some of the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection scents at my local Kroger store and you will be able to find the perfect scents to bring out the feelings of the holiday season in your home too!

  1. That picture of you two is adorable!! I'll have to make sure to get one like that with Casey this year. And also, yay Glade! I'll definitely be getting one of those candles myself in a few weeks.
