One may also ask, which Christmas tree has the strongest scent? Balsam Fir – The Balsam fir is the most fragrant of the trees, making it the most popular Christmas tree variety. They're durable and have short, flat, dark green needles. They do dry out quickly so be sure to check their water levels often.
Furthermore, why does my Christmas tree not smell?
A fir or spruce tree may not have as strong a smell or may lose its scent more quickly. In fact, some people strongly dislike the odor of spruce. If you have a living (potted) Christmas tree, it won't produce a strong smell. Less odor is released because the tree has an undamaged trunk and branches.
Why do Christmas trees smell so good?
Why pine trees smell so good. Pine, spruce, and fir trees – Christmas tree favorites – produce chemicals called terpenes, which give them their special, distinctive scent. Lodgepole pine in Grand Teton National Park. Well, most of that piney odor is due to chemical compounds called terpenes.
