  1. 1.

    Jo Loves Log Fires Candle

    Live in a fireplace-free flat a hundred miles from anything remotely resembling a country pub? Bring that cosy woody-smoky smell to you with this warm and sophisticated scented candle, which blends roaring log fires with a hint of Lapsang Souchong tea. 

    £55, Jo Loves

    Heyland & Whittle Caffè Latte Candle

    We love candles that offer something a little different. This one – mixing the burnt-spicy scent of coffee beans with a little creaminess – will fill your room with the smell of a freshly made latte.

    Byredo Bibliothéque Fragranced Candle

    This is a library-fragranced candle, and because of that it might be the best candle ever made. Inspired by the rich scent of ancient libraries, this has notes of peach, plum and vanilla, all layered with leather and patchouli. 

    £54, Liberty

    Elemis Joyful Glow Candle

    Bring the spa to your home with this unabashedly Christmassy candle (it’s not too early!). With warming and comforting orange, vanilla and cinnamon, it will fill your home with the smell of a delicious Christmas pud.

    £27.50, Elemis

    Diptyque Phoenix: Incense Tears Candle

    It’s not sensible to buy candles based on the jar, but we’ll make an exception for this glamorously festive gothy wonder. In case you’re curious, phoenix tears smell of spicy cinnamon, myrrh and incense.
