Must Have Festive Candles for Winter 2018

Posted on December 12, 2018

One of the things I love about winter time is firing up the wood burner, settling down with a nice Christmas film, a hot drink, and lighting a festive candle to fragrance my living room. I have a few gorgeous candles to share with you today that will look fantastic in your home, as well as filling your rooms with scents of the season 🙂

The Boy Smells Cedar Stack Candle is my second candle from niche brand Boy Smells, it features a wonderfully warm, woodsy scent, with notes of cedarwood chips, dried tobacco, bay leaf and crushed peppercorn, as well as sweeter notes of juniper and white musk, and it lasts for up to 55 hours which is fantastic. This fragrance is just beautiful, I’ve just started burning it in my living room and I can’t get enough of it!

One of my favourite budget brands, Flamingo Candles, always release a fantastically kitsch and colourful selection for Christmas. I particularly love this fun Deck Your Halls Candle – it’s scented with their Ice Queen fragrance, a super sweet blend of bubblegum, pear drops and vanilla ice-cream, and has a burn time of up to 50 hours.

I also have their Christmas Pudding Pink Candle, scented with yummy Christmas Pudding, including notes of raisins, sultanas, figs and apples enriched with cinnamon, almonds, orange peel. And the Prosec-Ho-Ho-Ho Candle – with a lovely Candy Cane Prosecco fragrance, created with notes of sweet peppermint, vanilla and fizzy prosecco.

Going back to more classic Christmas fragrances now, the Beatitude Christmas Comfort Candle is perfect for creating a warming atmosphere in your home. It offers up to 40 hours burn time, and this gorgeous festive fragrance combines soothing floral notes with uplifting citrus oils and spicy festive oils to infuse your rooms with the scent of Christmas Comfort.

The Heyland & Whittle Winter Spice Candle smells exactly as you’d expect – warm, spicy and luxurious. With festive notes of orange, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove this candle will make your home smell wonderfully festive for the whole Christmas season.

And the Skandinavisk TRÆ Candle – this one perfectly captures the delicate scent of wintery coniferous forests and freshly fallen snow. This mini 60g candle will give up to 16 hours burn time, whilst filling your home with bright and fresh woody notes of fir, limonene, peppermint, pine and snow.

And last but not least, the gorgeous La Montana Three Kings Candle. This luxurious candle will burn for at least 40 hours, and offers a uniquely decadent Christmas fragrance, with notes of cedarwood mingled with trampled pine needles, frankincense and myrrh, almond nougat, and a brightening tot of brandy. Just beautiful!

I’d love to hear which scented candles you’ve been burning lately? xx

Starting with the Feel Unique Elizabeth Arden Cracker – This generously sized cracker would make any beauty lover’s day, it’s filled with Elizabeth Arden makeup essentials, including a full size Beautiful Color Grand Entrance Mascara in Black, a Lip Oil (various shades included) and a Superstart Skin Renewal Booster Sample.

For something a bit more budget friendly, the Beatitude Peace Bath Oil Cracker is definitely worth checking out. There are three Bath Oil options to choose from – Peace, Patience and Joy, and I have Peace which promises to turn your bathroom into a divine peaceful haven when you’re in need of intensive relaxation. This relaxing oil is blended with essential oils of Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Mandarin, Petitgrain and Cedarwoood, to leave your skin sumptuously smooth with no greasy residue.

For makeup lovers, how about the Laura Geller Beauty Color Luster Lip Gloss Hi-Def Top Coat Duo – The Pearl (£20.00) – This cute little tree ornament contains two Laura Geller deliciously decadent Hi-Def Top Coats. Infused with light-reflecting pearls and lip conditioning Kendi Oil, it cushions lips with a rich, always silky, never-sticky shine.

Another Bath Oil option is the REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil – this dinky little bath oil Moisturises and conditions, leaving skin soft and supple, and it’s lightly scented with stress relieving and soothing roses.

Or how about the Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge  Designed to help create shadows or highlight your favourite facial features. The small side is for precision highlighting, and the large side is for controlled contouring.

For fragrance fans, the Ghost Eclipse Mini Set would be greatly received. This sunshine-filled gift brings together a mini Eclipse EDT fragrance and co-ordinating moon keyring, perfect for you handbag. Eclipse opens with edible notes of fresh blackcurrant, marigold and zesty mandarin, threaded with golden freesia and lotus flower.

The Spongelle Sugar Plum Sponge is another great beauty bauble. This innovative buffer is infused with a Sugar Plum fragranced body wash, which envelops the body in a sweet, festive aroma. Creating a creamy lather for up to 5 showers, the sponge leaves skin thoroughly cleansed and feeling soft and silky.

The Erborian Perfect Twist Blur It Cracker is a cute Christmas cracker containing two cult products from Erborian. There’s a BB Cream in Nude, enriched with SPF 20, it evens out and mattifies the complexion, leaving skin with a velvety, ultra-soft finish. And a Pink Perfect Cream which provides an instant “blur” by giving a soft-focus effect to the skin, minimising the appearance of pores, leaving the skin looking smooth and radiant.

I also have the L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Festive Bauble – This rose-gold bauble features a star cut-out design, a gorgeous addition to any tree. The products within capture the poetic beauty of springtime in Provence, where flowering cherry trees colour the Luberon Hills and perfume the air. The bauble contains a mini Cherry Blossom Shower Gel, Body Lotion and Hand Cream trio.

And lastly the L’Oreal Paris Read My Lips Red Christmas Cracker Lip Kit – Available in three shade options, the L’Oral Read My Lips Cracker contains a Color Riche Lipsticks and matching Lip Liner, so you can perfect your pout this Christmas season. I think Red is definitely the one to have for Christmas!
