With my son off at college and my bride flying for Virgin most of the Christmas season (lower seniority); we don't decorate a tree these days; but I still buy a live wreath for the fragrance.

I did not know that.  I know that sap is very sappy ... sticky 

A burst of aroma might be well worth the sticky sap.

I love the smell of a fresh Christmas tree though I haven't had one in years. I wasn't sure which part the pleasant fragrance comes from.
