10 Products To Help Your Home Smell Like a Cabin in the Woods

Cabin in the woods with mountains in the background.

Whether you’re looking for the fresh scent of summer or the flowery fragrance of spring, each season has a distinct bouquet that sets it apart from all the rest. For fall and winter, we swap out the pungent perfume of sunscreen and barbecue for the crisp smells of leaves, smoky campfires, pine needles, and cedar trees.

While these fragrances are best enjoyed sitting on the porch of a secluded log cabin in the woods on vacation, there’s no need to make an effort and move to the woods just to experience the same satisfaction and nostalgia. To bring the great outdoors into the comfort of your own home, smell some of our favorite items such as pine-scented candles that are guaranteed to give you each season’s signature smell.

The 11 best Amazon original movies you can stream anytime
From a Borat sequel to Catherine Called Birdy, these are the best Amazon original movies you can watch right now
best amazon prime original movies report

If you know anything about Amazon (and let's be honest, who doesn't), you probably know it as one of the biggest retailers in the world. As that retail business continues to grow, though, Amazon has also gotten into the streaming game in a major way. There are lots of movies on Amazon Prime movies as well as plenty of shows, but this list is focusing on the streaming films that have been produced by Amazon as a studio. These Amazon original movies clearly prove they want to be a dominant player in Hollywood, in addition to the dominance it already has in the world of retail, and based on this list, it's well on its way.

Because Amazon is such a new studio, all of the movies on this list are quite recent. Hopefully, that means that they feel vibrant and relevant, and will continue to hold up for years to come.

A love of the screen doesn't necessarily mean that every place on the planet enjoys the same type of media, though. What to watch varies a lot depending on cultural preferences and historical events that have occurred in any given country.

Bond. James Bond.

Espionage has always intrigued audiences when it's used as a main theme in movies. Spies not only have to garner information without getting caught, but they often have to fight their way out of havoc when the enemies discover their snooping. Spy films are varied and can cover a lot of ground as far as genres are concerned. Tropes such as politics, action, adventure, racism, and even romance can ground spy movies and distill them for a generalized audience. Today, we're here to rank our favorite spy movies from worst (this is a relative term) to best. These movies have featured mega-stars like Tom Cruise and legendary directors such as Alfred Hitchcock, giving credence to spy films for over half a century.
