In August, my husband and I sold our house and moved in with my parents until we find a new house. It was tough leaving the first home we purchased together, but we knew it was the right move. Although we fell in love with the house the first time we walked through it, we just bought too much of a house. It is just the two of us and Honey, our beagle; we don’t need a 4 bedroom home with a finished basement and huge backyard. So, at the ripe old age of 40 (and 46), we decided to downsize.
The feeling of home
There are many things I will always associate with our first home… the cool feel of the slate floor in the kitchen, the big farmhouse sink, the creaking of wood floors, and the odd shapes of the bedrooms are just a few. One thing that I don’t usually think about when remembering our home is the scent. At least, I didn’t until I saw the Air Wick Give The Gift of Home video. Take a look…
What an amazing idea to have a candle that you can burn and smell the scent of your old home! This got me thinking about what scents remind me of the house we sold. The first thing I think of is the smell of fresh cut grass as I mowed the lawn with our riding mower. I loved riding that thing! I also think of the fresh linen scent of the laundry in the dryer and the smell of my old math book collection on the bookshelves. I’m not quite sure how you could combine those smells into a scented candle, but it would smell like home to me.
Air Wick Life Scents Holiday Collection
The feeling of home is the idea behind the Air Wick Life Scents Collection. With this collection, they have created the first-ever constantly changing fragrances for home. From candles and wax melts to plugin and Freshmatic Auto Spray refills, Air Wick has you covered. There are 4 Holiday Life Scents that invoke the various feelings of your home during the holidays.
- Do you think of pies baking in the oven during the holidays at home? The Spiced Apple Crumble smells of pastry crust, spiced apple, and vanilla.
- Does your home during the holidays smell of evergreen pines and the scent of just-baked sugar cookies? Then Emerald Woodland is for you!
- If your home is filled with fresh baked cookies during the holiday, then the scent of Snowflake Vanilla Cookie with warm vanilla custard, spiced punch and roasting chestnuts is your choice.
- Does your home fill with laughter and fun during the holidays? The Berry Cool Winter scent smells of freshly-picked mint, berries, and a spoonful of whipped cream – how fun!
I tried both the Emerald Woodland (shown above) and Spiced Apple Crumble (shown below) Life Scent candles. The Emerald Woodland made me think of Christmas when I was growing up. We always had a real Christmas tree and my mom loved to bake cookies for the holidays. The Spiced Apple Crumble made me think of my grandmother’s apple pie at Thanksgiving. They both are wonderful multi-layered fragrances.
Give the Gift of Home
Air Wick is celebrating this holiday collection with their heartwarming video…if you didn’t watch it above, you should it really is lovely. They also will be donating $250,000 to help families in partnership with Habitat for Humanity through their Give the Gift of Home campaign. That truly is the gift of home, isn’t it?
