Not only is winter the perfect time to be lighting beautiful scented candles around your home, it’s also the time to stock up on your favourite seasonal Christmas candles. With hundreds of festive candles to choose from on the high street, we’ve managed to find three Christmas candles to suit everyone’s needs. Whether you’re looking to buy someone a luxurious gift or you simply want your home to feel more festive, there’s a candle here for you. So sit back with some mulled wine, stick on some Christmas music, and read on for three wonderful Christmas candle ideas.
Mrs Todd – Citrus and Cinnamon
We’re kicking this list off with the limited edition Citrus and Cinnamon candle from Mrs Todd. This brand is fairly new, and as each candle is hand poured with a combination of mineral and natural waxes, they burn nicely and evenly. This sophisticated scent is the perfect winter blend of warm and spicy cinnamon and clove, with a good hit of fresh citrus and jasmine. It also makes a great gift as, if ordered from the website, your candle will arrive wrapped in tissue, placed in a box, and finished with a stunning black satin ribbon. You can get your hands on one of these candles for £28.00 here.
Rathbornes – Rosemary, Fougere & Camphor
Next up is the Rosemary, Fougere & Camphor candle from Rathbornes. With two wicks, not only does this candle burn perfectly, it also manages to smell like a Christmas tree (and not one of those cheap cardboard car freshener ones). The scent of this candle is gentle and woody, with a hint of lavender. If you’re not into overpowering candles which fill the whole house with fragrance, this one is definitely for you. Rathbornes also happens to be one of the oldest candle companies in the world, and their centuries of experience show in this candle. At £30.00, this candle is available on their website.
NEOM – Christmas Wish
Christmas Wish from NEOM is perhaps one of the most unusual candles on this list. With the primary scents being mandarin and cinnamon, this candle has a somewhat ‘clean’ feeling to it, whilst still being traditionally warm and Christmassy. This scent is also part of their De-Stress range, and it does leave a very calm atmosphere to the room when burnt. Despite not being the most festive candle, it’s great for those of us who want only a subtle hint of Christmas in our home. You can get this candle for £34.95 from the NEOM website.
