You walk into a home, and it smells of pine. Oh they must have a real Christmas tree. Remember what those smell like. Or someone is baking your favorite holiday dessert. I like the smell of Pumpkin Spice. Or cinnamon. Both of those remind me of the holidays. What about you?

I like the smell of pine, too, but generally Cinnamon reminds me of the holidays. I tend to hang a cinnamon scented broom up on the door around the holiday time, so I guess that's why.

Vanilla...and Pumpkin Pie spice. I love the scents of both I even buy the Vanilla Body spray from Avon it is stronger then store bought and the scent last way longer. Both of these scents remind me of Christmas most since we usually had a artificial tree. But who can forget making sugar cookies and smelling the Vanilla. I feel more at peace when I smell the scents of Vanilla.

Definitely pine. We don't have a real tree anymore because of allergies, but the smell of pine is so Christmasy. I get pine candles and bayberry ones too. I get a pine wreath for the door sometimes, but the smell doesn't last. And Christmas dinner smells all combined - the ham, potatoes and rolls. Or the Thanksgiving dinner smells for that matter - wonderful.

Oh I always enjoyed the smells that came from cooking. I still do. I like pumpkin spice, vanilla, apple pie, and turkey cooking. Tonight I made chicken sauted' in a honey terriyki sauce. It smelled so good cooking. My kids gave me compliments after they were doen eating. So, did my husband. It made me proud.

I love the smell of cinnamon, ginger and cloves. That smell seems to linger in the house when I am baking. It smells great. I am not big on the pine scent, so I guess the ones for pies and breads are the ones that get me in the holiday mood.

Apple spice and cinnamon are the spells that I most associate with the Holidays. The only thing I associate with pine is sneezing and coughing and blowing my nose a lot because I am allergic to them.

Oh yes Pine is definitely the one, and also cinnamon. Sugar cookies sometimes bring me memories. Happy holidays!

I love the smell of apple cinnamon, or i get cinnamon scented pine cones to put around the house. Those are my two favorite smells. We get a real tree every year and the smell of pine just reminds me of the holidays, and really gets me in the mood to celebrate christmas.
