The air just seems to smell better around the holidays, right? Maybe it’s the joyous spirit and general mood of the public…or maybe it’s the food. Food is a huge part of the holiday season, from morning sweets, to heaping dinners, to delicious desserts — we can’t get enough of it!

That’s why we found seven holiday-scented or flavored picks so we can enjoy the scent of the season while we’re in it (and even after it’s over)!

This Rustic Candle

Yankee Candle

This candle is from Yankee Candle’s new Mountain Holiday Collection, and its blend of cabin-inspired notes like rhubarb, nutmeg, hazelnut and amber is absolutely perfect. Shoppers say the scent is “calming and clean,” and the design on the glass is so pretty!

This Exfoliating Pumpkin Mask

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer

Peter Thomas Roth is synonymous with advanced skincare, and shoppers say this polishing mask “smells like pumpkin pie.” We can’t recommend topping it off with some whipped cream, but we do recommend eating some while you wait to rinse it off!
