Beauty Unwrapped: The Christmas Candle Edit

Those Winter evenings leading up to Christmas are all about the cosyness; time to switch on the fairy lights and light a beautifully scented candle before settling down on the sofa to wrap presents.

There is nothing like a festive fragrance to get you in the Christmas spirit and whether you are looking for a luxurious gift or just to treat yourself to something special in the run-up to Christmas, a candle is the ideal way to get festive.

The Best Christmas Candles

Discover our edit of warming, calming and beautiful scented candles to light this Winter.

NEOM always do gorgeous limited editions at Christmas and we're head over the heels for the Christmas Wish Candle. All packaged in a real gold dotted glass jar, the scents of Mandarin and Cinnamon will transport you straight to Christmas morning. This is one to light as soon as you wake up on Christmas day!

If you need soothing and relaxing this season, then look no further than the This Works Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle. Like the bestselling Pillow Spray, it uses a blend of French Lavender, Chamomile and Vetivert to soothe the mind and calm the nerves. With a sophisticated and simple white container, this is the perfect candle to be lit every evening as you wind down for bed.

Aromatherapy Associates have made sure that this beautiful Christmas set of 3 candles is a perfect gift, thanks to the gorgeous packaging and mix of fragrances. Our favourite for the season is the Relax candle; infused with Myrrh, it is beautifully festive at the same time as helping you to unwind.

Is there any scent more quintessentially Christmas than that of spices and pine trees? This pretty candle from Crabtree and Evelyn is decorated with Cinnamon Sticks and Apple slices, looking perfectly at home with your Christmas decor. Scented with Citrus, Mulled Spices and Spruce, it is a beautiful festive blend.

Sometimes you need a little celebration and this gorgeous candle from Molton Brown is exactly that. Inspired by the vineyards of the Champagne region, it sparkles; both literally and figuratively thanks to the gold container and bright notes of Grapefruit, Elderflower and warming Ambergris.

Evenings by the light of an open fire... Not all of us can manage to have a beautiful fireplace, but this gorgeous candle from Baxter of California can bring you close to that experience. Smelling like sweet woodsmoke with hints of Orange, Ginger and Jasmine, it is cosiness in a jar.

The festive candles from ELEMIS are absolutely stunning. In a box decorated with a bow and then all contained in a silver jar with a delicate pattern of bows, it is pretty and festive; just imagine the light dancing through those bows! Capturing the scents of British flowers like Lavender, Chamomile and Geranium, it is a lighter take on Christmas.

Aveda's gorgeous limited edition Christmas Candle is warm and relaxing thanks to the Ginger Lily fragrance. All made with Soy Wax, this is a natural treat to add a touch of festive cheer to your home.

Make Up Specialist

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
