I completely love how a scented candle can change the way I feel. It’s the ultimate finishing touch for a room… and such a wonderful gift. There are so many different brands and such a wide variety of scents (and prices!) that it has felt a bit overwhelming in the past, when I’ve tried to buy one.
Also, by the time I’ve sniffed a few hundred candles, I can’t tell what’s what anymore… and so I have, on a few occasions, found myself leaving the candle emporium at Selfridges empty handed, purely through being defeated by the amount of choice.
I have trawled the shops and sniffed many (many) candles.. and these seven, which I’ve chosen, are ones that I would be over the moon to receive as a gift… and definitely would be candles I’d buy for myself, to pop on the coffee table and add a whole new delicious dimension to the Winter and Christmassy atmosphere in my home…
Jo Malone – Blackerry and Bay – £40
Molton Brown – Myrrh Musk and Cyprus – £36
Diptyque – Oranger – £40
Cowshed – Knackered Cow – £30
Ecoya – French Pear Madison – £39
Cochine – White Jasmine and Gardenia – £45
Miller Harris – Citron Citron – £40
Each of these candles have beautiful scents which I feel fits with the cosy Christmas mood perfectly….zesty, spicy, fruity or zesty.. they all are of excellent quality, have hours and hours of burning time and look beautiful as well.
I do hope this has been helpful – do you have a favourite candle? Please share! I love a new discovery…
All this Christmas research is making me feel very cosy.. I’m off to find my biggest socks and make a large cup of tea… you?
