I can barely contain my excitement because Pura, our favorite home fragrance diffuser, is bringing back their most popular seasonal and holiday fragrances for THREE DAYS only!! Some of these fragrances are famously known for selling out before you have a chance to grab them, so this early bird sale is your chance to stock up on those – and ALL FRAGRANCES – for the upcoming holiday season!

If you hadn’t heard, Pura is a smart fragrance diffuser with interchangeable fragrances, all controllable from an app. You can see how discreet it is in our front entry, but it’s one of the hardest-working devices in our entire home! My favorite features are that each device holds two different fragrances, you can set each on its own schedule, AND you get to select the fragrance intensity! It’s pretty easy to set up, and then it’s kind of a set-and-forget situation (which is my favorite kind).

Now through July 20th, you can use my exclusive code JULIA25 and get 25% off ALL FRAGRANCES, which can be stacked on top of the already discounted 20% off subscriptions. That’s 45% off! Do not sleep on this deal.

To kick off this celebration, I wanted to share some of my favorite Holiday fragrances, paired with Holiday images around the house that you can practically smell through the screen! – A little virtual scratch & sniff, if you will.

Frasier Fir

Frasier Fir – Am I in a Hallmark movie? This smells exactly like a Christmas tree farm and is best placed near a Christmas tree and a crackling fire. This fragrance always sells out!


Holiday – Everything about this is quintessential Christmas! It’s pomegranate and orange with spicy cinnamon and clove. Really bright and fresh and reminds me of those scented cinnamon pinecones, but elevated. This popular scent is a struggle to keep in stock.


Gingerbread – Even if you don’t like the taste of gingerbread, who doesn’t love the comforting smell of cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and golden amber? This will bring you right back to Mom’s kitchen.

Fresh Balsam & Cedarwood

Fresh Balsam & Cedarwood –  I wish you could actually smell this through the screen because it might be my favorite Holiday scent. It’s so fresh and woody, with notes of citrus, cranberry, sugarplums, and frosted cedarwood. Host a Holiday dinner party with this on low and everyone your guests will be transfixed.

Fig Tree

Fig Tree – The scent that keeps on giving! This fragrance made it on our top fall scents and spring scents because it’s somehow perfect for each season. It’s so sophisticated and aromatic and musky, transfigures to every occasion.

Feu De Bois

Feu de Bois – This Lafco fragrance is one of my all-time favorites. It’s the perfect soothing, seasonal scent with sandalwood, leather, and frankincense. It’s perfect for fall, winter… even year-round!

Pumpkin & Sweet Vanilla

Pumpkin & Sweet Vanilla – I don’t typically like sweeter scents, but this one is somehow grounded and not too rich. I’ll definitely be putting this in my kitchen device the moment fall arrives.

Honeycrisp Oakwood

Honeycrisp Oakwood – Sometimes, apple scents are too sweet for me, but not this one. It’s primarily woodsy and crunchy fall leaves with a touch of fresh, crisp apple.

Don’t forget to use my code JULIA25 now through July 20th for an ADDITIONAL 25% off, and let me know what you got.

Oh, and be sure to check out some of our other Pura fragrance recommendations from past posts below 👇. Happy Christmas in July!

Might as well stock up for spring pura scents as well.

looking for inspiration? 

I recently got an email from someone that asked, “Where do you go for new design inspiration?” She went on to say, “I use Houzz and lots of popular sites, but I feel like I’m stuck in an algorithm and keep seeing the same things.” I know the feeling — it’s so easy to get […]
