There’s nothing like curling up under a blanket with a candle beside you.
And at this time of year, there are plenty of festive limited edition releases to enjoy, all scented with an array of pine, orange, and spices, for the most Christmassy of candles.
Some have special packaging too, making them just as beautiful to look at as they are to smell.
Light these on a cosy night in – they’ll make it feel all the more special.
The outer design on this luxurious candle twinkles when lit up, creating a soothing glow. The fragrance is just as evocative of a winter’s night, featuring heliotrope and white musks.
NEOM Cosy Nights
A soothing mix of sandalwood, frankincense and nutmeg scents this one. With three wicks, it offers 50 hours of burn time – plenty to get you through these darker months.
Anthropologie Holiday in the City
Coming in three varieties, you can choose from woody, citrusy, and herbal fresh fragrances.
We’d keep the votive holder afterwards too, as the quirky illustrations will make for standout Christmas decorations for years to come.
Aromatherapy Associates Forest Therapy
Designed to help calm you down, this candle helps create the illusion of the outdoors coming in.
The earthy essential oil blend features ho wood, pink pepper, and cypress to refresh and uplift while you get the grounding feeling of being in nature.
Yankee Candle Cinnamon Stick
There’s nothing quite so festive as cinnamon, and this large votive will see you through the whole winter period.
Lush Snow Fairy
This limited edition candle offers something gentler and sweeter – which will work for those who don’t want a candle with an intense throw.
The Snow Fairy scent is a favourite for fans of the British brand, with synthetic musk that conjures images of candy floss and bubblegum – these candles are also 100% vegan.
Jo Malone Pine & Eucalyptus
A pretty votive worth keeping long after Christmas, this’ll make you feel like you’re in a tranquil forest.
The snowball design is festive enough for this time of year, but can easily be passed off as polka dots once the tree’s put away.
Fortnum & Mason Christmas Votive Candle
Another festive scent, this features orange, cinnamon, and clove – like mulled wine on a chilly evening.
Burn this when you turn on the tree lights for a comforting glow.
John Lewis Spiced Clementine and Pomegranate
Christmas candles don’t need to be costly – this one proves you can get a cheery scent without burning a hole in your pocket.
The department store’s range also includes Frosted Mistletoe and Eucalyptus, Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla, and Winter Spice options.
