The smells of the holidays

For me, this group of awe-full ornaments conjures up the various smells and scents of the holiday season – some warm and fuzzy, like a hearty red wine on a cold evening… aaaaand some, well, not so good. See below.


Ooooooooh, put a cork in it! I love the smell of mulled wine bubbling away on the stove. But I’m not a fan of how the aromas permeate closet doors and make all your clothes smell hobo-ish.


Elfin magic with pipe cleaners, felt and sequins. There’s a special pungent odor inherent in all felt ornaments older than 3 years. Initiating gag reflex in 3, 2, 1…


A herd of clothespin reindeer. In a pinch, you can plug the ol’ schnoz from offending odors like felt ornaments or aunt Ethel’s perfume.


Finally, here’s a gem I found hermetically sealed in its original packaging – a Pine tree scented plastic pine tree to hang on your fake tree. I suppose you could hang it on your real tree for a more intense pine scent, or hang it from your car’s rearview mirror after the holidays!
