Enjoy the Scents of the Season Every Day! (#Giveaway)

Disclosure 1

You know how I know that fall has arrived in Atlanta? It’s a smell in the air outside. It’s the aroma of burning leaves. I don’t know why, but I love that smell. It equals the beginning of fall. That’s the thing about scents. They are so powerful. They can evoke emotion and bring up memories. That’s why I love to surround myself with my favorite scents year-round – especially during the holiday season! So when Glade® asked me to partner with them over the next few months and show them how scent inspires my home life, it was an opportunity I could not pass up! Throughout the year I will be posting how different fragrances help bring comfort, joy, cooking, craft and décor inspiration for me and my family.

For instance, in our home Thanksgiving will forever be tied to the aroma of apple pie baking in the oven. After our annual apple-picking in the fall, we have lots of apples to use up!


We make a version of apple pie for every Thanksgiving and every time I smell apple pie – I think about Thanksgiving. It could be in the middle of the summer, but I still think about Thanksgiving. It’s the warmth of the apples mixed in with cinnamon. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE!

So while I can’t bake an apple pie every day, there are other ways that I can surround myself with my favorite scents throughout the holidays and year-round.  That’s why I love the new Glade® PlugIns® Scented Oil Warmer Customizables™ in Apple Cinnamon Cheer™ & Sparkling Spruce™! First of all, I love the pretty faceplate with snowflakes, which not only looks great in my home but is also festive. More importantly, this new, scented oil warmer is unique in that it alternates between two scents daily.

Glade 1

It’s available in the following scent combinations:

  • Apple Cinnamon and Lavender and Peach Blossom
  • Clean Linen® and Sunny Days®
  • Hawaiian Breeze® and Vanilla Passion Fruit
  • Apple Cinnamon Cheer™ & Sparkling Spruce™ (Limited Edition Winter Collection)

The holiday version alternates between Apple Cinnamon Cheer™ and Sparkling Spruce™, which I think nicely encapsulates the holidays! One scent is warm and comforting (Apple Cinnamon Cheer™) – the other is clean and fresh while still being “holiday” (Sparkling Spruce™). I LOVE it! So much so that it inspired my interior décor for the upcoming holiday season. After baking a delicious Apple Pie, which is always a huge hit with my family this time of year, the crisp and outdoorsy scent of Sparking Spruce™ has inspired me to make a homemade wreath for our door – and Lucas can help! Everything you need is right outside! Just gather some pinecones and acorns, spray them with silver and gold paint, attach to an evergreen wreath and voila! It’s amazing how scents – like Apple Cinnamon Cheer™ and Sparkling Spruce™, have the power to uplift, inspire, and help us get into the holiday spirit!
