As soon as December arrives, everyone seems to surround to the Christmas spirit. I get very excited as soon as the shops start putting their decorations up in late October, and have been collecting my favourite Christmas fragrances ready to share with you. in December a reed diffuser just won’t do. It must be candles or festive popouri to lace my home with the promise of the month to come.
Here are some of my favourite festive candles that I am morning around my house and lighting at every opportunity! I’ve obviously got far more than I can ever burn in the run up to the 25th, but they make such gorgeous presents, especially if you get to give them early.
The White Company Winter Candle is a warming combination of cinnamon, clove and fresh orange and it is available in a range of sizes. Next year I really want the massive Indulgence version which has a huge 230 hour burn time!
ESPA Winter Pine Candle this beautiful candle is a infusion of warm and sweet cinnamon, eucalyptus and pine and is more subtle than the more out-there Christmas fragrances.
Crabtree & Evelyn Noël Botanical Poured Candle This candle is so stunning with cinnamon sticks and apple slices decorating the wax. The fragrance also combines mulled spice, fir spruce and the zest of citrus fruits. I do love this candle, but it does come second place to their Windsor Forest that I had last year!
The White Company Mulled Wine Candle based on my favourite festive tipple it combines fruit and spice fragrances of cinnamon, nutmeg, star anise with sweet vanilla and red-wine.
Jo Malone Pine & Eucalyptus Candle no one does christmas like Jo Malone and this combination of Pine and Eucalyptus is classically christmas.
Molton Brown Fabled Juniper Berries & Lapp Pine Candle this is a christmas tree in candle form,burning this limited edition beauty, no-one will guess I've gone fake...
ETRO Misto Busco Candle (available at Harrods) combines sharpe and sweet berries with pine needles. Tocca Chamonix Candle which is in last years packaging - but the same fragrance of rosemary and pine, quintessentially christmassy.
La Montana Winter Oranges Candle is a festive combinations of Valencia orange, cinnamon, red apple and clove.
Annick Goutal Noel Candle combines citrus fruits, pine bark and resin, in this beautifully gold streaked glass.
I hope I have inspired you in your Christmas candle purchasing and do let me know which is your favourite!
