The mere sniff of a discount code and an impending Christmas present order from the brand in question seemed like enough of an excuse to indulge my sense of smell by purchasing a White Company winter signature candle with its combined aroma of cinnamon, clove and orange to relax and rejuvenate me before Charlie gets home from school and the madness of dinner time ensues. I blame my mum's Frankincense candle from Avon when I was a child for my love of Christmas aroma's.
I often re-light them during the evening, and take them up to my bedroom before I bath and go to bed and although I love the fragrance of many candles on the market at other times of year, you can't beat a Christmassy aroma floating around the house in the run up to the festive season.
They also act as my fall back gift for girlfriends and female relatives when I don't have a clue what to buy, as they are always well received. You can view the full range of White Company candles here.
Christmas Scented Candles to covet ............
Frankincense Limited Edition Diptique Candle £45 from Space NK. Space NK Shimmering Spice Candle £30. Warm Roasted Chestnut Signature Candle £29 Laura Mercier at Harrods. Annick Goutal Noel Scented Candle £41 from Harrods. Ralph Lauren Holiday Candle £35 at Harrods. John Lewis Winter Spice Box Candle £12.50.
I'm loving the description of the Annick Goutal Noel Candle.....
"Fresh and full-bodied, spicy and fruity, a mixture of citrus fruits and majestic Siberian pine. A scent with the clarity of snow and the warmth of a house filled with impatient, excited children on Christmas Eve." Sounds divine doesn't it? Or how about the Roast Chestnut one from Laura Mercier, my mouth is watering already!
What is your favourite scented candle and do you buy one especially for the festive season?
