Festive Candles

I love a scented candle all year round- anything by Neom, Jo Malone or True Grace always has my vote. But even if you aren’t into them year round, when it comes to the festive period they make a fantastic addition to the home and will instantly get you in the mood for Christmas! So here are some have caught my eye (and nose!).

Starting with one of my favourite brands Neom. This Christmas Wish fragrance is part of their  therapeutic Neom Scent To Instantly De-Stress range- and features 13 of the purest essential oils including mandarin, cinnamon and tonka bean. I love the fact that it has been created to help reduce stress levels which lets be honest are pretty high at this time of the year!


Everyone has been going nuts (pardon the pun!) over this Jo Malone Roasted Chestnut candle. Imagine Chestnuts roasting on a crackling fire- lovely! It is seasoned with nutmeg, cinnamon and clove, and sweetened with soft caramel.



I adore the smell of tangerines at any time of the year but there is something wonderful about them at Christmas. This candle has a very strong citrus scent which is refreshing- containing Italian green tangerine, Florida grapefruit and Sicilian lemon, with marjoram, geranium and orange flower.


This one from Marks and Spencer is a bargain and will look great on the mantelpiece amongst other xmas decorations. Scented with cranberry and warm spices of cinnamon, ginger, clove and nutmeg.



This candle from Charles Farris will remind you of Christmas trees! I love it’s blend of sweet green pine needles mixed with eucalyptus. The textured matte glass looks really chic and stylish.
