When the temperature drops below zero, it becomes much more difficult to find the wherewithal to go outside—even when you still crave the adventure of the great outdoors.

From crushed fir needles to mountain pine, we’ve rounded up a plethora of crisp scented candles you can burn to make your interior smell like a walk through a coniferous forest.
