I'm trying to focus on the positive.

    I always loved the smell of the tree. I think I will have a real tree again at some point, but probably not as the main tree. I really miss it when I see people taking their trees home- it was such a happy custom going to get the tree.
    Good memories so say the least. I do get some of the pine scented ornament sticks. They do add a nice aroma...

    I use essential oils in diffusers to get the scent. I haven't been able to duplicate a real tree smell exactly, but it's something.
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    I have to admit, the sticks come close. Of course they do not last too long, but I love to hang them as I am leaving and then get that first intake when I've come home...

    Still prefer the basic green, but now and then a flocked one looks great as well...

    The ones that look like clip on candles? Because that's what I was considering also!

    Me either. Green is preferred, but this year, I will be putting up a white one as well...
