Fill the Air with Holiday Aromas with Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart

The holidays are a feast for the senses—the sight of cheery decorations, the sound of favorite carols, and the smells, too—the crisp, wintry air, fresh greenery, and warm, spicy goodness from the kitchen. Scent is a powerful memory-maker; see how the members of our BHG Live Better Influencer Network bring the holidays to life by infusing their homes with their favorite fragrances and letting scent inspire their decorating choices this season.

Get Cozy in the Kitchen

Lindsay Hines from Whimsy Girl makes sure her holiday hominess extends to her kitchen, too. She's inspired by the sweet, woodsy Smoked Caramel Fireside Jar Candle, which reminds her of sitting next to the fireplace. The color of the candle works well with her countertop decor alongside a pair of Ceramic Hobnail Canisters in Medium and Small sizes which are filled with her holiday baking supplies, and a matching Utensils Canister.

Bring Cheer to the Cocktail Hour

Open houses or holiday parties often call for cocktails, and Lory Bernstein of Designthusiasm is ready! She places a festive Fitzgerald Two-Tier Bar Cart with fresh flowers in the dining area, and infuses the room with her favorite Fresh Cut Frasier scent in a charming Christmas Tree Farm Wax Warmer for an extra layer of that special something.

Add a Touch of Icy Blue

Create a Corner for Quiet Reflection

Jodie Kammerer and Julie Lancia of The Design Twins are obsessed with candles. This year, a certain scent inspired their holiday decor theme of "cozy white Christmas," the White Spruce Jar Candle. They love the nostalgic, old-fashioned look of the glass jar and the refreshing Christmas-y scent. It fills the air next to a favorite armchair, which is dressed for the season with a Plaid Sherpa Throw Blanket.

Take a Cue from Holiday Greenery

Shannon Fox from Fox Hollow Cottage sought to fill her home with all kinds of greenery this holiday season, from the boughs her husband hung above the dining table to the color palette of her decor accents. She likes the Fresh Cut Frazier Jar Candle because it has an authentic scent to perfume the room (especially since her greens happen to be faux!).

Make a Fragrant Focal Point

Kelly Wilkniss of My Soulful Home has a signature scent for her home, Soft Cashmere Amber. Here it's set in a twinkly cut-glass Geometric Glass Candle, which plays a starring role in her tabletop centerpiece. The arrangement also features a shiny, Gold Lantern Pillar Candle Holder to set the tone, with three flickering Flameless LED Pillar Candles inside. A Porcelain Pitcher rounds out the trio with a burst of greenery.

Charm the Children

Melonie Graves of The Mellionaire House makes magic in her son's room to inspire his visions of sugarplums. She sets up a tree and fills the air with the Christmas-y scent of Frosted Fir Wax Melts in a Deer Wax Warmer, which casts a relaxing and festive shadow against the wall. A pair of charming Glass Trees and a surprise wrapped gift are the perfect finishing touch.

Light up the Night

Becky Cunningham of Becky's Farmhouse also dressed up her son's room for winter evenings. She took her inspiration from a Smoked Caramel Fireside Candle as her theme, and used woods, grays, and blacks for the color palette. She set the candle inside a Galvanized House Candle Holder Lantern set atop a Cube Storage Organizer filled with Galvanized Bins to keep her son's room tidy.

Make Lasting Memories

The scent of Incense and Evergreen Wax Melts in a Christmas Tree Farm Wax Warmer conjures fond holiday memories for blogger Nina Williams. After her family would go tree shopping, they'd hang out together with a movie and popcorn. Nina re-creates the same tradition for her children and their cousins with a holiday movie night, complete with popcorn served in personal Popcorn Bowls and sweet mix-ins arrayed in a group of Porcelain Square Mugs.

Recall That First-Snow Feeling

The crisp, clean, pristine feeling of the first snow provides decorating inspiration for KariAnne Wood of Thistlewood Farms. She extends the holiday mood to the bedroom by burning a Cut Frasier Jar Candle, while Tufted Square Floor Cushions serve as casual extra seating on the floor.
