Glitters and sparkles are only half of the path to a perfect Christmas. We need colours but the smell of Christmas is half the appeal. With this in mind, we love a good festive candle around the holidays, so we’ve compiled a list of our favourites for those of you looking for some inspiration.
We are thrilled to introduce this little gem from Sandy Bay , the Nutmeg & Ginger Candle that will make your house fragrant like a biscuit. The black opaque glass contains a good size candle that already smells really Christmassy once you open it.
The spicy nutmeg will catch your sense at first, quickly followed by the gently piercing ginger - a mix of scents that bring to mind family, Christmas pudding and custard. Buy your 75g Nutmeg & Ginger Candle here for £9.99 and enjoy it during more than 15 hours.
Something that looks like something out of a fairy tale is the Midwinter Candle from Kenneth Turner. This is the perfect item if you’re dreaming of a candle that doesn’t only have a great scent but also a chic design. We decided to go for Midwinter fragrance because it tells us stories about enchanted forests and frosty villages. But from Kenneth Turner Christmas collection you can also find Winter Berries and Masquerade.
The candle is housed in a delicate vase revealing all its crispy and minty fragrance. The whole product has such a delicate design, from the box to the silver, metal tag around the vase. The candles are in different size; the 200gr at £42 is available here.
Next on our wishlist is the rather art deco style Noel Candle from Annick Goutal. Luxuriously scented with pine and mandarin, this would make a decadent gift for any candle lover, and gives of an aroma of the more sophisticated style of Christmas.
We love the gold striped packaging, and thinks that it looks perfectly Christmassy in the most subtle way. Treat yourself or a loved one to this decadent looking candle here for £39.
Another positively lovely candle offering is from Voluspa. Looking like they’ve come straight from the Three Wise Men, these cute little decorated tins would look wonderful on a coffee table, to fill the air with the scent of Christmas.
Part of the Maison Holiday range, we love the Spruce Cuttings scent, which has already got us excited about buying this year’s Christmas tree. The subtle scent isn’t as sweet as most holiday candles, but smells every bit as Christmassy! It’s perfect for adding a scent that isn’t too overpowering come Christmas Day. Grab these beautifully packaged candles here for £13.00.
