Ask any woman what her favourite gifts to receive are and there’s a good chance a candle will make the cut. Not only do they smell delicious and look stunning on a mantel or coffee table, candles are able to make a house feel like a home with nothing more than the strike of a match. If you need a last-minute gift idea, want to treat a friend or family member this Christmas, or simply feel like spoiling yourself, then our round-up of the best scented candles this holiday season is for you.
Cire Trudon Christmas Gizeh Candle
Bursting with a festive blend of birch, cashmere wood, moss, cedar, musk and patchouli, Cire Trudon’s Christmas candle pays homage to the pyramids of Ancient Egypt’s historic era. The luxurious buy also has impressive silage, so is ideal for burning in larger spaces like the kitchen or living room.
Ecoya Fresh Pine Candle
One sniff of this pine, citrus and rosewood scent and you’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away to the magical sun-soaked forest it was inspired by. Light and fresh, it’s the perfect candle to burn on a hot Australian Christmas morning.
Jo Malone London White Moss & Snowdrop Deluxe Candle
If you’re a fan of the cult-fragrance house, you’ll love this jumbo candle that features iridescent glimmers throughout the glass. Top notes of cardamom, heart notes of snowdrop, and base notes of white moss combine to create a soft and inviting fragrance that everyone from your grandma to your boyfriend will love.
Maison Balzac Bonne Nuit Candle
Sometimes simplicity is best. And that’s certainly the case where Maison Balzac’s Bonne Nuit is concerned. The minimalist candle features only one note – lavender – and is made with pure organic lavandin oil from France. As such, it’s the perfect complement to a relaxing bath or shower after a busy day.
Louis Vuitton Dehors Il Neige Perfumed Candle
We might not be able to enjoy all the trappings that come with a white Christmas, but this candle will allow your imagination to run wild. Evoking the cosy feeling of a chalet, this Louis Vuitton candle combines notes of cinnamon, incense and aldehydes to create an enveloping and comforting fragrance that you’ll instantly fall in love with.
Glasshouse Night Before Christmas Candle
Inspired by your grandma’s festive cooking (plum pudding, included), Glasshouse’s Night Before Christmas Candle combines blackcurrant, lemon and lavender to remind you of everything that’s magical about Christmas (and the food that comes with it).
Carriére Fréres Limited Edition Raspberry Bush Candle
Add a little luxury to your home with this pick from Carriére Fréres. Its rich blend of raspberry bush, cardamom and cedar emits a scent so delicious you’ll want to keep it all for yourself.
