Last year I was gifted some Christmas candles on Christmas which I never got round to lighting up as I finished off my already burning ones I had on the go therefore I had my Christmas candle collection started early this year. There was no doubt about it that I wasn't going to add to it as time went on.
My favourite candle brand as you may or may not know is Yankee Candle. I never really steer far away from them. I did light a Zoella candle in the middle of the year but they could still never come close to what Yankee Candle produce. SO, let's start by kciking it off with my Christmas Yankee Candles.
1. Christmas Eve
2. Manadrin and Cranberry
3. Sparking Cinnamon
5. Red Apple Wreath
6. Winters Glow
Depending on what mood i'm in varies on which candle I light. Some smell more christmassy than others. For example the most christmassy one for me is Red Apple Wreath. This candle has been out for years and my mums house always smells of this at Christmas. This candle is infused with sweet apple, cinnamon, walnuts and maple. Those ingreidences scream Christmas baking but the candle itself doesn't. Don't be decieved but you'll deffo NOT be disappointed. It get's me into the festive sprit almost immediately! I love to throw a bit of a fruity scent in there too. The Mandarin and Cranberry is super appealing aswell. It's still got that hint of cinnamon shining through but very subtly. But it actually is not infused with cinnamon, only orange and cranberry. During October/November, I managed to burn my way through Christmas Eve as it was the only Christmas candle that I had on hand and it quickly became one of my monthly faves (stay tuned!), this scent isn't as strong as some of the others but soon spreads quickly around the room creating a homely, cozy feeling.
Another brand which I have recently discovered which is SO underrated (you may have seen me breifly mention it over on my Instagram) is WoodWick. My mum actually discovered them and they are probably a bit more expensive than Yankee Candles and i've only experienced 1 particular flavour but it's delicious. It is Spiced Blackberry. A very autumnal looking candle being a deep purple but has christmassy hints about it. The best thing about this brand is they produce these candles to have a cracking sound as they burn, something I find relaxing and thepraputic to listen to. I'd reccomend you delving into this brand and giving them a go if you are a huge candle fan like myself.
I hope you enjoyed reading about the different scents i've collected overtime. What is your favourite Christmas candle?
I hope you have a lovely day!
