If you feel the most relaxed when your home is clean and smelling fragrant, this post is for you. As we welcome the holidays, it’s the perfect time to switch up your scents for some home fragrances that will leave your sanctuary smelling like pine, oranges, and mouth-watering spices.

With the holidays upon us, these winter home scents are perfect for setting the vibe and ushering in the warmth of the season.

According to, “certain welcome home scents are those that take us back to our youth, of warm fires, Christmas cookies, and warm milk. Long cold winter nights made comfy with family and laughter and movie nights,” all of which is perfect for the season.

Winter Home Scents

Choosing a deeper, richer scent that signifies a shift into a new season is a way to revitalize your senses when you walk into your home. Nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, and citrus are helpful for more than the kitchen. They help set the base for blends that bring baddie vibes. 

Add a spark to your romantic nights indoors with luscious berry-scented candles. Clear out the smell of that Friendsgiving potluck with pepper, ginger, and amber. Engage your creativity with caramel or soothe yourself with musk and sandalwood. 

This season, various options at every price point will add warmth and comfort to your home. We have gathered some of our favorite fall home scents to give your home a cozy vibe.
