At this time of year, few things make a home feel quite as cosy as a festive candle. Whether you’re a fan of spicy cinnamon scents or prefer uplifting pine blends, we’ve got your seasonal home scent all wrapped up…
Pine and Eucalyptus, £45, Jo Malone
For those who prefer cool and clean notes over warm, sweet scents. This is fresh, yet still festive.
Christmas Wish, £30, Neom Organics
This hand-poured candle is infused with the aroma of 14 essential oils. Mandarin and cinnamon bring classic Christmassy vibes, while tonka bean adds a sweet vanilla note.
A Gift of Comfort and Light, £28, Aveda
Aveda is loved for its exemplary stand on sustainability as well as its calm-inducing aromas, and this limited-edition candle delivers on both parts. It’s made from clean-burning soy wax, fragranced with the brand’s signature ginger-based Candrimā scent, and packaged using 90% recycled fibres.
Amber Musk, £50, Aerin
Infused with Aerin’s warming Amber Musk fragrance, this limited-edition votive is perfect for cosy evenings at home. What’s more, the minimalist white and gold design is Christmassy yet chic.
Juste Mythique, £19, & Other Stories
It may be inspired by mythological symbolism, but & Other Stories’s new fragrance blend sums up Christmas to perfection. Black papyrus and tobacco leaves lend warmth, while vanilla cements the seasonal appeal.
Une Forêt D’or, £60, Annick Goutal
This midnight-blue and gold candle offers a sophisticated spin on traditional Christmas scents with notes of orange peel, Brazilian mandarin and Siberian pine.
Portable Fireplace, £58, D.S & Durga
If Christmas to you means mulled wine in front of a crackling log fire, this one is bound to become a new favourite. It’s deep and smoky with warming woody notes, yet won’t smell out of place after Christmas day.
Christmas is in the Air, £58, Penhaligon’s
Notes of fir balsam needles and juniper berry make Penhaligon’s festive offering smell like a walk through a Christmas tree farm. A heart of cedarwood delivers satisfying warmth, while patchouli and cashmeran bring a rich, velvety finish.
