Nothing beats the fragrance of pine this time of year. For me, it triggers memories of childhood in New Jersey, replete with scarves and mittens and red noses. When I left my parents’ home and moved to New York, a Christmas tree lot was set up next to my first apartment building, and I walked through a glorious pine-scented maze on my way to and from work each day for weeks.
Now I can have that wonderful scent in my home all season long–thanks to the Frasier Fir collection from Thymes. Available in reed diffusers, candles, home fragrance mist, cleansers, and lotions, it perfectly captures the scent of Christmas. Says the Thymes Web site, “With the aromatic snap of crisp Siberian Fir needles, heartening cedarwood, and relaxing sandalwood, it is mountain fresh, yet cozy and comforting.”
I couldn’t agree more.
