Scent in a Stick
At last month’s Atlanta Home Show I sniffed out—literally—a product that I haven’t been this enthusiastic about in a long, long time. You’ve likely purchased or received flowers that are beautiful, but unfortunately don’t smell equally lovely. It’s not that they smell bad … they just don’t smell, period.
Here’s your genius solution: ScentStems. They’re 9-inch-long green, wooden fragrance sticks that look just like flower stems. Pop one in your vase in the middle of a flower bouquet and you have instant fragrance, right from the source! It’s not cheap, manufactured gas-station-style air freshener smell, either. These things smell like an actual bouquet of fresh-cut flowers. (Finally, there’s a cure for carnations).
What I was even more excited about, though, was the company’s line of ScentSicles. If you have an artificial Christmas tree or if you prefer a stronger evergreen scent around the holidays, hang these 5.5-inch-long sticks at the base of your tree’s branches; they even come with ornament hooks attached! They’re completely inconspicuous within the tree, and you’d be surprised by how much fragrance one little stick emits.
