It’s not just chestnuts roasting on an open fire, there are lots of smells that will immediately shout Christmas to your family as soon as they step through the front door.

 

The tree

The aroma of a fresh pine tree is hard to beat. And don’t forget the slightly dusty baubles and fairy lights you’ve dug out from the loft.

 

Sticky tape!

Wrapping is a huge part of life at this time of year. How much you like the smell of sticky tape directly corresponds with how much of yours you have – or haven’t – done by Christmas Eve!

 

Mince pies, sausage rolls, gingerbread…

There’s no getting away from it, food is a huge part of a special family Christmas. Diets are for January!

 

‘Mum’ washing

However grown up your ‘babies’ may be, chances are the way mum makes their washing smell will be the best (notwithstanding a certain amount of laziness of course!). Bold 2in1 will leave everything from sheets to Christmas jumpers smelling of home.

 

Crackers

That faint smell gunpowdery smell of a pulled cracker is a seasonal must. It’s almost enough to make up for the cheesy jokes!

Home baking

I think the smell of home baking can't be beaten. Mince pies Christmas cake and gingerbread. I don't like the mulled wine or cinnamon smells much though!
