These fragrances make the home feel warm and cozy, and set the mood for the upcoming season.

Today we’re going to go over our top picks for the best candles that smell like Christmas trees. These candles are the ones that we think will be the best options for making your home get that nostalgic Christmas smell through scented candles.

2. YANKEE CANDLE – BALSAM & CEDAR *Editors Choice*

Balsam, aromatic cedar wood and juniper berry.

Some people love Yankee Candles and some people hate them. It’s not as black and white for us here at Candle Junkies. Some candles from this big name brand are terrible and some are great. This one falls in the latter category.

Yankee Candles did a great job with this scent, hitting all the right notes with fragrance that feels authentic and powerful. Reminiscent of the smells of going out and cutting down your very own Christmas tree.

Candle Junkies Buying Tip: We found these candles usually tended to be cheapest on Amazon but you may find decent sales elsewhere as well.


3. JewelScent – Concolor Fir (Jewelry Candle Option)

Crisp, winter fir leaves and cool mint accented with hints of juicy Florida tangerine

I’ve been getting asked lately if there is a good option for jewelry candles that smell like freshly cut trees.

If that’s what you are looking for then I think my favorite option for this year would have to be Concolor Fir from Jewelscent. It’s got that classic Christmas fragrance with a nice little twist on it.

You have the option to get a ring sized 5 – 10, earrings, or a necklace that is valued from $20 – $7500 inside. A great gift idea as well.

4. P.F. CANDLE CO. – SPRUCE

Snow powder, blue spruce, cedarwood, and citrus.

What’s not to love about the candles from this Californian candle company?

Their candles are vegan and made from a home grown soy wax. They are about as clean as you can get.

Spruce is a candle that I’ve wanted to recommend for a while now and this seemed to be the perfect time to introduce it.

5. VOTIVO – ICY BLUE PINE *Editors Choice*

Fresh Green, Fir Needle, Cedar, Patchouli.

Icy blue pine is a tree scented candle that packs a fragrance punch. For being only 10 oz in size this thing fills the room with a cool pine fragrance in a matter of minutes.

It wasn’t really a surprise that we enjoyed this one as much as we did, as Votivo is well known for their strong scented candles.

Top Notes: Eucalyptus, Spearmint, Fresh Ozone, Pine Needles

Middle Notes: Suede, Silver Spruce, White Leather, Patchouli

This one is from the Alpine collection from Paddywax Candles.

They are another longtime favorite here on the blog. This candle comes in their “camping mug” style container that fits with the rest of the collection.

While this one does have some additional fragrance notes that come through, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the scent, it’s just too good. If you are looking for a twist on the Christmas tree scent, then this candle might be for you.

7. VILLAGE CANDLE – CHRISTMAS TREE *Editors Choice*

Notes of juniper, balsam fir, cedar, musk.

I know a ton of people that swear by this candle and even would choose it over some Christmas tree candles that cost more than double the price!

If you also take into account that these candles have an extremely long burn time of 170 hours, it’s really a no brainer why many people love them.

8. TRAPP – WHITE FIR

9. NEST NEW YORK – BIRCHWOOD PINE *Editors Choice*

White pine, fir balsam, and birchwood over a base of rich musk and amber.

This candle is nothing new to the blog, it’s been one of our longtime favorite candles for the holidays.

Nest is all about the complex fragrances that always go that extra mile and throw in nice twists on classic scents.

Birchwood Pine does an amazing job at capturing an authentic pine scent in a candle. I love it. I also love the new holiday packaging that it comes in for this year!

100% Worth the higher price tag on these.

    1. Yup! You can’t have a list like this without that candle. It’s so good.

      Oh thanks for sharing, that site is new to me!

      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  1. I love the Yankee Candle Christmas-scented candles… But I’ve also been on the lookout for different, independent candle brands. You know, like the ones you can find on Etsy. I just feel like at the end of the year, it’s really time to give back to the community, and to support the ones that are striving to make their dreams come true! I’ve been eyeing Village Candle for quite some time now, so maybe I’ll get one of their scents… Thank you for sharing, there are quite a few brands I did not know here!

  2. I wanted a nice Christmas tree scent even though I am not able to have a tree because of my cat. I looked on your site and then went to Amazon and purchased a $54 THYME – Fraser Fir diffuser and oil with reeds. I know you get money when we use your link, but I would like to give you whatever you would have earned had I purchased the $69 one shown on your website. Do you have any way I can use a gift card to send you your portion?

    1. There is no need! I’m just happy that I could help you find something! Did you like the diffuser?? Thanks for checking out the blog 🙂
