    :red: If it would be feasible to drop some fir- balsam incense chunks in the firepot , when it's not running of course, she would like the smell waiffing thru the house . She figures it shouldn't be a problem but i kinda go by , if it works ... don't mess with it . Watcha all think of the incense thing ? Muss

    I would never put anything besides pellets or corn in my stove!

    Since a stove is self contained, you wouldn't get much scent flowing through the house unless you put the incense inside the heat tubes. I wouldn't recommend that either.

    My wife just puts a ceramic bowl of potpourri on top of the stove.

    I see no problem with that, as you say, when the stove is NOT running. It might help offset the smoky smell that some folks get.

    you could always just hang one of those automotive christmas trees on the door handle.

    (I've had a birthday cake thrown at me, luckily a good catch, so YMMV)
