Thanks to a thread on mumsnet, I bought a Balsam Hill tree which I am very happy with. Except I am missing the scent of a real tree. Any good fragrances of tricks to make it smell like we have a real tree in the room?
Pine essential oil. Really cheap, not synthetic. If you don't have a burner you can put some drops on a tissue on the radiator. Last year I made a Christmas essential oil blend with pine, mandarin, cinnamon and frankincense, really delicious.
I found some Scentsicles in Wilco and am rather pleased with them. As I was looking at them in the shop, a very sweet assistant whispered that she didn't want to put me off, but she had bought some and they were so strong she took them back. I don't think they are strong (Winter Fir), I used two and the effect is subtle and not toilet cleanerish.
