About The Best Christmas Scented Candles

1. Baking Treats: Yankee Candle, Christmas Cookie, £8.99

One of my favourite things about Christmas? It's the perfect excuse to bake some tasty treats. Of course, if you're not a great baker, buying a cookie-scented candle is the next best thing.

With a rich buttery, vanilla scent, I'm obsessed with Yankee Candle's Christmas Cookie fragrance. I light it in my living room to make the whole house smell like there are always freshly baked biscuits in the oven.

2. Peace And Tranquility: ESPA, Winter Spice Candle, £15.00

Who doesn’t want a bit of peace and tranquillity this time of year? ESPA’s therapeutic fragrance is the perfect way of creating a soothing ambiance. Their Winter Spice candle blends sweet orange with cinnamon and ginger to create a decadent festive aroma.

3. Warm And Spicy Orange: Oliver Bonas, Clove and Cinnamon Candle, £16.50

Christmas doesn’t really start until your house is filled with the comforting scent of orange and cinnamon. Luckily, this candle blends cinnamon, nutmeg and clove with fruity notes of orange, apple and vanilla. Warmth and spice? Check!

4. Countdown To Christmas: Ferm Living, Scented Christmas Calendar Candle, £19

Nothing builds your excitement for Christmas like a calendar candle. Simply burn it for a few hours every day then cross off the date on the pretty glass cup to countdown the days.

It will not only create the anticipation we all love, but the cinnamon scent will fill your home with that much-loved festive scent.

5. Relax And Unwind: NEOM, Christmas Wish, £32

Undeniably one of the best Christmas scented candles, this should definitely be on your Christmas wish list. It’s everything a festive candle should be! It contains the tang of mandarin, the warmth of cinnamon and the spice of tonka bean. Best of all, it blends 13 essential oils that are designed to reduce stress.

6. A Soft Glow: Elemis, Joyful Glow Candle, £32

A beautifully-packaged Elemis candle on your mantelpiece is festive in itself, but with calming notes of vanilla, orange and cinnamon added to the mix, you’re guaranteed a joyful atmosphere.

7. Bringing The Outside In: SKANDINAVISK, Sno Candle, £32

Don’t you just love that fresh and crisp smell you get from being outside in winter? I just can’t get enough of that thick scent of wet leaves and hardy greens. Fortunately, this candle encapsulates all these memories and more! It boasts a dry scent of frozen wood and winter berries, a true celebration of Nordic Winter.

8. Celebrations: Molton Brown, Muddled Plum Candle, £42

This candle is the perfect Christmas companion. Boasting a delicious blend of rich Oak-Aged Rum and earthy tones of Sandalwood and musk, it smells of celebration. Simply light the wick and allow its fragrance to carry you away with that December feeling. We’re talking flickering fires and the flavours of Christmas cake.
