PS....I found the most wonderful spray at Wal Mart...for the holidays! AND affordable to us all I believe...only $1.50 for 6 oz. bottle. Tho, in the store, there were several fragrances to choose from for the season, I wanted something light and airy...and reminiscent of the forest where we used to go when in Colorado to cut down a fresh tree ourselves and take it home to decorate....leaving such a wonderful, seasonal aroma throughout the house for weeks! Today, with the now beautifully crafted artificial trees that will pay for themselves [economically speaking] in two year's time, I fail to comprehend why anyone would want otherwise. We've had a fabricated tree now for almost 30 years. At $25 or more for a real one...that one eight foot artificial tree we purchased years ago at $30 when on sale at the end of a holiday season...well, you do the math!! For me, tho, there is one fallback. And that's the fresh cut, live, tree smell! This spray I found is just perfect. It has the right incense of whichever you choose. Not heavy, and when I spray it in spots and corners of the entire house, the redolence is perfect. On the label there is a cautionary note that the oils may make fabric bleed and harmful if sprayed in eyes. But who, in their right mind, would target eyes with the nozzle except for perhaps, human error? I'm all for artificial trees! Economically, green earth-wise, clean-up, and maintenance. They are not that expensive if you find a store like Hobby Lobby that have their Christmas Trees anywhere from 30% to 50% off. Being a 'mock pine' there are no pine needles you have to contend with during the time the tree is up and decorated. There is less-to-no fire hazard like with real trees! They're easy to construct, and tear down. And they pack away in a small container that will fit nicely in a closet, the garage; even easily stored in the attic!
