    I'm in Dublin, have you noticed the majority of Christmas trees on sale in the last 10 yrs have no smell at all? I'd really like to get a fantastic smelling tree this year. I don't care if the needles drop! I've never been able to find any. Please let me know if you found any last yr or this yr? Thanks!:D

    My family thought I was mad when I told them 2 years ago that there was no smell from the tree. Last year they were instructed to buy a smelly tree but still no decent Christmassy smell. I miss that!

    If you're anywhere near Celbridge, the ACRE project have Noble Firs and are selling them at Salesians school.

    They also have Nordmann Firs which supposedly look fuller - you might be able to ask for a branch off a Noble for the smell and stick it into the Nordmann for the best of both.

    That looks amazing, haven't seen a real tree like that for a really long time.

    I got this myself to help with the smell

    Also saw these, but went with the candle as thought I could manage the strength of the smell a bit more easily
