How to Use Fragrance to Decorate Your Home This Christmas

December 10, 2019

Have you put up your Christmas decorations yet? If you haven’t already done so, don’t forget to include home fragrance amongst the tinsel, baubles and other festive ornaments.

Christmas wouldn’t be complete without the traditional and nostalgic aromas, so make sure you include luxury scented candles and reed diffusers in your decorating this year.

How to Make Your House Smell Like Christmas

A Wintery Woodland Wonderland

The smell of pine and a general woody aroma capture the essence of Christmas. You can achieve this by decorating a real tree, hanging up a beautiful wreath, or using logs as statement pieces.

Or, you can create a similar experience with some of our fragrances at Illumens. Like our new scent Cedar and Guaiacwood, a deep and musty aroma that has a hint of sweetness, or with one of our classic scents Juniper and Spruce, a combination of pine tree resin, juniper and blackberry.

Fiery Home Comforts

Is there anything more picturesque than a crackling fire, burning in the background on a cold winter’s day? Not only keeping you toasty, but a fire is an ideal accompaniment for a Christmas setting and decorations.

If you enjoy the smell of subtly smoky firewood, you can get these comforting aromas from our new fragrance, Fireplace. Another new addition, Charcoal, also holds captivating notes of fire, fresh leaves and fresh felled wood.

Sweet Citrus Treats

No one can deny that distinctive fragrance that comes from a freshly peeled clementine. Even when you use a fruit bowl full of them as a festive table decoration, the subtle scent is reminiscent of Christmas.

To enjoy this fragrance for longer, our Clementine fragrance in our Winter Collection is available in both a scented candle and diffuser. We also have our classic Neroli and Pomegranate scent, and the new Bittersweet Orange and Jasmine in our Authentic Philosophy Collection that feature indulgent notes of this sweet citrus fruit.

Sugar, Spice, All Things Nice

Mulled wine and Christmas cookies; the aromas you get from cooking these delights during the festive season completely fill your house. Clementines appearing again, along with sugar and spices, especially cinnamon.

Cookies could be used to decorate your house, but how long would they last before they get eaten? Nutmeg and Cinnamon is the classic Christmas combination, so if you want to inject the scent of Christmas in your home, you should buy one of our candles or diffusers.

Scented Christmas Decorations

Although you may not initially think of candles as decorations, they can be dotted around your home during Christmas for a bit of sparkle and cosiness. Indulge in the long-lasting fragrances this year with our scented Christmas decorations from Illumens!
