Nothing feels like the Holidays like the scent of a Christmas tree. While some like that fresh, vibrant scent you get from a freshly cut fir tree, others like a more earthy scent that encompasses the crisp green needs and warm woody notes from the bark and trunk of the tree. Finding the perfect Christmas Tree can be fun and frustrating. Here’s our guide to help you find the perfect tree scent, without the frustration.

Nest Birchwood Pine

The aroma of a majestic winter forest is created by blending white pine, fir balsam and Birchwood over a base of rich musk and amber.


The NEST Birchwood Pine candle is bright, beautiful and does wonders to fill your home with the aromatic scent of a freshly cut Christmas Tree. With a refined elegance in both the scent and the styling, NEST Birchwood Pine is definitely one to try if you’re looking for an energizing, true Christmas Tree scented candle. Birchwood Pine by NEST Fragrances is available in the standard size, votive, 3-wick, grande candle, diffuser and spray for all your fragrance needs. Be sure to set the diffuser by your artificial tree and spritz the tree with the Birchwood Pine spray. You’ll never miss having a real tree again.

Thymes Frasier Fir

Mountain fresh with the aromatic snap of crisp Siberian Fir needles, heartening cedarwood and relaxing sandalwood. 


Arguably the best Christmas tree scented candle out there, the Thymes Frasier Fir scent comes in a huge variety of products. This scent is wildly popular with Candles Off Main customers. Deb from Ohio calls this scent “stunning,” adding that “it has the perfect amount of sweetness and just the right amount of warm sandalwood to give it a soothing effect. Very crisp and uplifting fragrance.” Cheryl from Arizona calls this candle, “the one.” She wrote, “For years I have been searching for a real “pine” fragrance to compensate for an artificial Christmas tree. This is it! I burn this through the entire holiday season to evoke the memories of the past and create new ones for the future.”
I imagine that this powerful scent is what the Griswold home must have smelled like when Clark attempted to bring an enormous tree home for the holidays in Christmas Vacation. If you’re an artificial tree devotee, this candle will bring the forest scent home with one little flame.

Aquiesse Monterey Pine Cande

Aquiesse Monterey Pine Candle is the crisp scent of hilltop Evergreen pines, earthy Canadian balsam wood and fresh thyme, evoking a misty morning journey through a coastal forest grove.


If you want a a Christmas tree fragrance that is not overly ‘crisp’ or bright — we recommend this scent. In this fragrance, I detect soft creamy notes of vanilla blended perfectly with the crispness of balsam. I consider this a very inviting Christmas scent that will be perfect all winter long. Guests to your home will feel the comforting notes of this idyllic tree scent.

Votivo Christmas Sage Candle

Freshly harvested juniper berries, tangy hemlock cones and fragrant emerald hued spruce boughs transform the rustic cabin into a light filled workshop where dreams are crafted with pride and hope fills the heart eternal with gifts that truly linger.


The Christmas Sage candle by Votivo is one of my favorites. It’s earthy, gritty, herbal and incredibly grounding. When the holiday festivities of bubbly champagne and sweets can make you spiral out of control, this scent is perfect for bringing you back down to earth. I love this scent on cool or raining nights when I need to relax and unwind. The travel tin is great for weekend ski getaways.

Rigaud Cypres

The aromatic mildness of lavender, the woody and crackling notes of pine needles and the forceful fragrances of cedar wood all intermingle.


The luxurious French line Rigaud has been around for decades. Ever since First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy introduced Rigaud to the homemakers of the US in the 1960’s, the intensely fragrant Cypres candle has been a Christmas tradition.  With its elegant and distinguished history, Rigaud Cypres is the most complex tree fragrance in this list, reflecting more of a cologne or soapy scent than true Christmas Tree. If you’re looking to make a statement, it’s easy to do with a Rigaud Cypres candle.
