Oranges and Christmas (well, Michaelmas) go hand-in-hand, and this spiced orange-scented East of India candle, designed and made in the UK, is a cute fit for any home. Decorated with delightful drawings, it also comes with a handy message for when you think you’ve eaten too much Christmas pudding. The lid reads: ‘Remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you feel and smarter than you think’. In other words, you can and you will cram more pud into your mush. Simply inspirational.
There are so many reasons why people love scented candles at Christmas. For starters, they look homely, cosy and a bit rustic. Then, obviously, they smell. And they smell good. Candles can have your abode smelling of gorgeous spices, citrus and berries, but they can also get other, unwanted smells out of your home – or at least cover them up. At a time of so many parties and guests, candles can be true godsends.
But it’s no secret that some scented candles are better, stronger and smellier than others. Which are the best? And where can you snap ‘em up on the cheap?
That’s where we come in. Below are the six best wax smellies that you can buy this festive season. And, even better, some of them are still discounted following the Black Friday sales. From rich pines and cypresses to rich cherries and musky cinnamons, these candles will have your home smelling just right this Christmas.
