I love burning candles all year round and especially at Christmas. There are so many different scents to choose from at Christmas so I thought I would share some of my favourite candles as well as some traditional scents. So let’s begin.
Cinnamon Chai by Woodwick
If you are looking for traditional Christmas scent then this is a lovely one to go for. This candle has spicy cinnamon and rich vanilla notes making for a lovely warm scent. Woodwick candles are also slightly different from a normal candle as the wick is made from wood. This means as you burn the wood wick is will start crackling like a fire, adding another dimension to the burning a candle. Woodwick candles are also made from soya wax so they will burn slowly and evenly across the jar.
Orange & Cloves by Wax Lyrical
This is a gorgeous orange, spicy scent that will fill your house with a beautiful Christmas scent which is also quite traditional. I am not a huge fan of traditional spicy and rich Christmas scents but I quite like this one. This candle has notes of soft tangerine, orange, peach and pink grapefruit with a musky undernote. When burning this candle it’s not too overpowering so if you like that sort of candle then this one is for you.
Manor Christmas Candle by True Grace
This is one of my favourite Christmas Candle as it smells very strongly of oranges, with a undernote of warm cinnamon. This candle gives off a lot of scent, you only need to burn it for a few hours and it will fill your house with a gorgeous scent. This four-wick candle has been made from natural waxes (Rapeseed, Coconut oil and Beeswax) and burns evenly and cleanly. This is an amazing Christmas candle, which captures the traditional Christmas scents.
Winter Woods by Landon Tyler
Sometimes it’s nice to burn a fresh scent and a lovely fresh scent is pine trees . This candle smells so fresh with a combination of pine, fir, spruce, moss and cardamom notes. It will fill your house with the smell of fresh Christmas trees, perfect if you don’t have a real tree maybe. I love burning this type of candle when I need a scent that is a bit of a change from the spicy traditional Christmas scents.
Another scent I love is frankincense as it is still a spicy warm scent but not as heavy as cinnamon. So these would be my recommendations for candles at Christmas time. Let me know what you favourites are. Keep an eye out for a blog post all about Christmas scented wax melts by Pick ‘n’ Melt, it is a great alternative to burning candles. Hope you enjoyed this blog post and it gave you some Christmas candle inspiration.
