Winter is a very special time of the year, when instead of dressing up for the night out, I am actually enjoying cosy nights in! As crazy as it sounds, comes December, my perfect evening starts with mulled wine, super-fluffy blanket and an aromatic winter candle warming up the room and filling it with delicious scent of nature. So I have selected my favourite winter candles to help but feel wonderfully comforted this season.
Orla Kiely Geranium and Myrrh
A rich aromatic fragrance blending notes of earthy geranium with opulent myrrh, creating a scent that is truly comforting and warm. Top notes of clove and thyme balance a hearty base of amber and vanilla that leaves a decadent and uplifting aroma. And we are totally in love with this retro-inspired pattern on the glass jar.
True Grace Rosemary & Eucalyptus Candle in a tin
True Grace is offering a classic exhilarating, herbal mixture of woody Rosemary with earthy and fresh Eucalyptus this season to uplift the senses and warm up the coldest of the evenings. Plus the packaging speaks of utility and simplicity, as the candle is hand-poured in a zinc container.
L’Occitane Winter Forest Candle
For me the scent of winter forest brings some very romantic memories, so L’Occitane is definitely one of my favourites! Notes of pine needles, peach and cinnamon recall the scent of a yule log burning in a Provencal fireplace. Pure indulgence.
White Company Winter Signature Candle
Winter is a rich, warm, nostalgic fragrance that envelops all who smell it. The zesty sharpness of orange, the rich, aromatic cinnamon and the warmth of clove make it the perfect seasonal scent for your home.
Neom Limited Edition Christmas Wish with Mandarin, Cinnamon & Tonka Bean
This signature Christmas blend candle is packed with warming spices and fruit notes to bring a little comforting festive cheer into your home. Plus you can make someone’s wish come true this Christmas, as Neom teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation®, to help grant life-changing wishes to children. With each candle bought, £1 goes back to the inspirational charity!
Cire Trudon Bartolome Scented Candle
Presented in a hand-blown glass vessel with gold leaf detailing, this candle blends saffron and nutmeg with a heart of cypress, carrot seed and liquorice, and is finished with a base of cedar, vetiver, vanilla and amber. What’s not to love!
Diptyque Feu de Bois / Wood Fire Candle
This luxurious handmade scented candle creates an elegant ambiance in any home especially with its smouldering aroma capturing burning embers with the smokey warmth of Lapsang Tea to create a unique, slightly mysterious scent.
Oliver Bonas Red Berry & Cinnamon
This is a really cute little candle from Oliver Bonas with a great combination of fruity berries and seasonal cinnamon. The fact that it’s handmade in Sussex using only top quality waxes and cotton wicks means you get a long 40 hour burning time packaged up in the little 140g candle. I really love the bespoke boxes that they come in too.
