Favourite Festive Candles

Throughout the colder and Christmas period, I love lighting numerous candles around the house. It not only makes the entire house smell like Christmas but it also makes me feel more relaxed. These are my most loved candles that are burning almost all the time.

Firstly, the Tuscany Candle in the Gingerbread House fragrance smells amazing. Like its name, the candle has a gingerbread scent which reminds of Christmas. Usually, I light this candle in my kitchen because it isn't to heavily scented and makes the room smell as though you've just been baking. I purchased this candle from Clintons.

Next, one of my favourite Christmas candles for a few years now has been Yankee Candle's Snow in Love. It has a creamy and fresh scent, so this is perfect if you aren't a fan of sweet smelling candles. I personally think that this candle can be lit anywhere in the house as it's comforting scent isn't too strong or heavy. This can be bought from Yankee Candle.

One of my favourite bloggers and YouTubers, Zoella, recently brought out a range of candles and room diffusers. This is the second gingerbread scented candle in my favourites and the reason why I love it is because its spicy and warm scent makes my house smell just like Christmas. It has a heavier scent than the Tuscany Candle and so I tend to only light it at night time and in either my bedroom or living room. However, I would definitely recommend using a jar topper (these can be purchased from Yankee Candle) as this candle otherwise can burn rather quickly and the wax can be wasted on the side of the jar. This candle can be bought from Superdrug for only £10.
For years now, I have loved Yankee Candle's Fireside Treats candle. It has a marshmallow and slightly woody scent which is warming and comforting and isn't too heavy or overpowering. You can buy this from the Yankee Candle store.

A new favourite of mine is the Festive Spice Candle from Next. Its fragrance is the classic Christmas spicy scent and I like to burn this in my living room as it is a homely scent that again isn't too overpowering. This candle is also huge and in my opinion it burns really well and steadily, without wax being wasted on the side of the jar.

Lastly, I have been loving the Marks and Spencer Frankincense and Myrrh Mercury Candle. Its scent is warm and slightly spicy and sweet which is unlike any other candle I own. Although I have burned it completely, I will definitely be repurchasing it during the Christmas season. I also bought the potpourri with the same scent which is currently in my room making it the whole room smell festive.

Thank you for reading and stay tuned for a different blog post each day of advent in my Beyond Christmas series.
