Jo Malone Roasted Chestnut Deluxe Candle

A candle list wouldn't be complete without mention of candle and fragrance experts Jo Malone. This year, the brand released a special (and mammoth) Roasted Chestnut Deluxe Candle. Weighing in at a hefty 600g, this candle is infused with nutmeg, cinnamon and clove, and sweetened with soft caramel, creating the perfect scent of chestnuts roasting on an open fire.

Future and Found Tallow Candle

One that may remind you of a Ghost of Christmas Past, this unique Tallow Candle by Future and Found is made entirely from wax right down to its plate.

White Company Mulled Wine Candle

Admittedly, it was difficult selecting just one candle from White Company's Christmas offering. With classic options such as Winter or Fir & Berry, we felt spoilt for choice - until we laid eyes on their Mulled Wine candle. Hand-poured into a beautiful ribbed-glass pot, the scent perfectly captures sipping warm mulled wine beside a fire with a combination of spicy notes including cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise mixed with sweet vanilla and red wine.

Stoneglow Candles Redcurrant Cranberry Gel Tumbler

If you enjoy fruity scents, this Stoneglow Candle is for you. A blend of zesty cranberries, tangy redcurrants, mulberries and juicy mandarin, it’s enough to leave you in the festive spirit. What’s more, this candle has been crafted from gel and includes real botanical pieces in its design, meaning you’ll want to show it off.

Yankee Candle in Christmas Eve

When it comes to spreading Christmas cheer, you can always rely on candle extraordinaire Yankee Candles to leave you feeling festive. With a wide range of scents from Cosy by the Fire and Bundle Up to Berry Trifle and Sparkling Cinnamon – and even their very own Reindeer Carousel Advent Calendar – lighting one of these classic glass pots is all we want to do this winter. Our favourite by far is Christmas Eve - as festive as its name will have you believe, this scent is packed with sugared plum and candied fruits to perfectly embody the excitement of Christmas in a tub.

Charles Farris Candle in VII Pinetum

A limited edition over winter, Charles Farri’s Pinetum candle brings the refreshing and much-loved scent of a Christmas tree directly into your home (without the mess of pine needles). This scent is created from a mixture of sweet green pine needles with cooling eucalyptus and seasonal birch leaves on a base of amber and sandalwood.
