Festive Scents and Candles

“Simply having a wonderful Christmas time”

I always find that I can’t get in the perfect Christmas mood or feel really festive without lighting a few wintry candles which remind me of Christmas. There are endless amounts of festive scents and candles out there and scents are very personal preference, for example I don’t like all  berry scents. However in my opinion there is nothing better than getting cosy in bed with your fairy lights on, with a DVD playing and a candle burning. These are some festive scents which I love, especially at this time of the year.

One: Christmas Spice Candles. I was speaking to my friend Rosie one day and talking about my blogmas plans, especially this blog post and then she gave me these cute little candles because they were Christmas scented. They smell so good and like a Christmas pudding mixed with gingerbread and there is nothing better than a good gingerbread scent! I don’t know where they are from but Rosie said that she thinks they are from Next. Thank you Rosie!

Two: Yankee Candles. I decided to put all of the Yankee Candles together but I have to admit that Yankee Candle are my favourite Candle Company. I just love how they aren’t too strong that they give you a headache but you can still smelt them after you have burnt them and blown them out. The first one is Fireside Treats. This is more of a bonfire night candle if I am honest but I still burn it this time of year because it reminds me of Lush’s Snow Fairy scent because it is also very sweet. It also has a touch of vanilla though too and vanilla is one of my all time favs!

Second is the Berry Trifle which reminds me of all the puddings that you consume around Christmas. I did say how I am not a berry scent lover, purely because I am not a fan, however I do like this one. It isn’t too strong or sweet and reminds me of a berry trifle… I wonder why…? Ha Ha!

The last Yankee Candle is not a Christmas candle and is their classic Clean Cotton but I often go away at Christmas to relatives house’s so this reminds me of then. Also who doesn’t like the smell of fresh clean bedding? It is amazing! This is only the small candle but I have gone through so many and even though it is small it burns for a long time.

Three: Glade Candle Warm Spiced Orange. This candle just screams Christmas to me. Its that classic orange scent and also reminds me of mulled wine. It is very similar scented to the candles Rosie gave me but just with more orange in them. The zesty scent is just a favourite for me because even though it has a spicy side too it, it is still a rather fresh scent.

What scents do you love at Christmas?
