The Smells of the Holiday Season & A Giveaway

*I am teaming up with Air Wick® for this sponsored post.  As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Even though it isn't quite Thanksgiving yet, we are in full holiday decorating mode in our house this week.  I look forward to this season all year long and I have been planning our decor for weeks.  Even before we bring that first box of holiday stuff from the attic, I begin adding scents to our home with holiday candles and wax melts.  Nothing gets me into the holiday spirit quite like the smells of the season do.

This year, I have been burning this lovely AirWick® Emerald Woodlands scented candle.
The AirWick® Life Scents™ candles offer a constantly changing fragrance that acts like real life.  Emerald Woodlands adds the scents of morning frost, evergreen and sugar cookie to the room.  I love the sleek design of this jar and the label is easily removable to add a sophisticated look to your decor. This candle will burn for up to 30 hours.  You can read more about these candles on Air Wick's website here.
I love the warmth and atmosphere a burning candle adds to my home, but I also enjoy the option of using wax melts in an electric warmer to diffuse fragrance slowly.   
Air Wick® Scented Wax Melts fill your room with long lasting scents and contain natural essential oils.  I have been enjoying the Air Wick® Scented Wax Melts in the Spiced Apple Crumble scent in our living room.  The scent fills the entire space of our open plan living, dining and kitchen space with the smell of spiced apples and vanilla.  The wax warmer sits on a shelf and blends in with our holiday decor.  Each pack contains 8 melts and lasts 160 hours.  You can read more about Air Wick's scented wax melts on their website here.  With my supply at the ready in a basket, I should be able to keep our home smelling great through the entire holiday season.
Now it's your turn for a chance to win some holiday candles for your home!  I will select a winner and Air Wick® will send you a gift set that includes 2 Emerald Woodland scented candles and 2 Apple Crumble scented candles.  Just leave me a comment by Monday (11/30/15) telling me when you begin your holiday decorating and be sure to include your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.  Happy decorating!

Update: Congrats to Judy from IL!  My youngest son picked the # of her comment from a bowl.

  8. Hi Courtney,
    With my daughter hosting Thanksgiving at her home I can start my decorating early for Christmas. I love the candle melts too. Nice to have them going all day without the worry of a candle burning. Have fun getting your home ready for the holidays. I know it will look spectacular. Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for a chance at this great giveaway.

    P.S. I am new to your blog and just love how you have decorated your home. Plus, I love golden retrievers, (we have a 6 year old). I am so sorry to hear about the passing of one of yours.

  11. I'm planning to put my tree up the day after Thanksgiving this year. This is the first year with an artificial tree so I'm hoping it will look as nice as the real one. I always worry about the tree drying out. I would love to win your giveaway!

  17. I have been "digging" some of my Christmas decor out already, but have not started with decorating any of the rooms yet. I will be more excited to do so, when we get a little snow on the ground, which here in WI, is suppose to happen this week. Love the smell of a good candle on a cold winter day, well, I love the fragrance of them anytime, really. Thanks for the chance to win this give away.

  31. The Christmas decor bins were brought down from the attic last weekend and decorating begins today! Part of my decorating is always making my home smell like the holidays as well so this gift basket would be just the fix I need. My email address is busymomintc@yahoo.com in case I win (got my fingers crossed :) ).
