I've used an artificial tree for more than 25 years. One year, my then-hubby insisted we needed a real one. It was sappy (not as bad as yours, though), dry (despite cutting the base and keeping it in water) and messy. Worse ... the branches weren't strong enough to hold my beautiful Hallmark ornament.

Now, if I want to smell a tree, I buy a few branches, tie them together and use them as a decoration on the fireplace mantel ... or I spritz some of that artificial evergreen spray in the room. LOL
