I love candles and must burn a lot during the year. Christmas wouldn’t be complete for me without lighting some candles; it sets the atmosphere and leaves your home smelling so beautiful. Below are my five favourites this year, come and take a look …
Candle Un Encens Etoile – Diptyque
An enchanting scented candle with a magical mix of incense, elemi and sweet vanilla. A lovely alternative to the traditional Christmas scented candle with the most beautiful packaging.
Gingerbread Village – Zoella Lifestyle
New to her collection this year is the Gingerbread Village Candle with its sweet and spicy warming scent. Although it is on the cheaper side, it has notes of ginger, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg that fill your home with the delicious smell of home baking. Perfect for this time of year!
Frankincense & Myrrh – Marks & Spencer
Such a traditional scent that always reminds me of performing in the Nativity at primary school. This spicy and woody scented candle will keep your rooms smelling gorgeous for days. This scent comes in different forms of candles and even has its own potpourri and refresher oil.
Christmas Eve – Yankee Candle
A slight alternative to the traditional Christmas scent, this candle indulges warm hearth, sugared plums and candied fruits. It’s very refreshing, and the little Santa picture on the outside decorates any home for Christmas perfectly.
Winter – The White Company
My number one Christmas candle of all time, I re-buy it every single year. This candle has the entire collection of traditional Christmas scents; cinnamon, clove, orange and berries. I always try and buy the bigger ones as I love to be able to see the ingredients showing around the outside of the candle. It’s so beautiful, and I cannot recommend it enough. My very first job was as a Christmas temp for The White Company in Bluewater Shopping Centre, and that’s where my love for this store began. The scent instantly takes me back to the days leading up to Christmas working there and gift wrapping all the beautiful items they have to offer.
