The 12 Candle Scents of Christmas

25 October 2020

The most wonderfully scented time of the year? I think so! 

And for several Glimmer fans Winter & Christmas scents are an all year thing. It is never too early to fill your home with warm and wintery scents, here's my 12 festive favourites.

Enjoy, Sandra

  1. Classic Christmas in box - Isle of Skye Candles Winter Warmer This warm comforting fragrance makes you feel all cosy - perfect for creating your own hygge haven at home. Closest thing to mulled wine I've found, this wonderfully spicy candle incorporates Cinnamon & Clove spices with a citrus orange top note.
  2. The Christmas Tree alternative - Barr Co Fir & GrapefruitThe combination of juicy grapefruit zest and the clean fresh woody note of fir oil creates an intense rush of invigorating, yet comforting scent for the home. 
  3. Scent of the Outdoors - St Eval Winter Thyme - I love this! Perfect for a fresh smelling welcome in your hallway. A fresh, herbal scent for Christmas, inspired by Winter Woodland walks.
  4. New Year vibes - Isle of Skye Juniper - At Hogmanay the smoke of burning juniper is used to cleanse, bless and protect the household and its inhabitants. This 3 wick candle is an aromatic juniper, subtle, sweet and woody.
  5. What no white Christmas? - Simpatico Snow - This cleverly balanced scent inspired by drifts of snow. The K Hall team have created a unique scent. Soothing notes of soft vanilla balanced with a fresh peppermint to reflect the embracing cold of snow.  
  6. Spicy Punch for full on festive vibes - Shearer Frankincense & Myrrh -Aromatic, woody and spicy this rich fragrance combines the oils of precious woods, spices, sensual musk and vanilla.
  7. The Romantic Gesture - Lollia Sleeping under the stars - A clear cold night with sparking stars above. Fresh top notes, of Bergamot & Water Lily transcends into a base note of White Patchouli, Beachwood, Sheer Musk. 
  8. Less spice is twice as nice - St Eval Orange & Cinnamon - balancing cinnamon with sweet orange, since launching in 2019 this is rapidly becoming a returning favourite for Glimmer fans, if you don't want a full on spice this sweeter alternative is for you. 
  9. Cosy Christmas Home - Paddywax Verbena & Patchouli A long time ago verbena, was believed to protect you from spells. This candle is made for burning next to an open fire and enjoying a romantic, cosy festive vibe.
  10. Wow worthy gift - Thymes Lotus Santal - The box, the finely pleated tissue, the coaster lid - nothing opens better than the Thymes candle range. If you want to upscale your candle gifts this year, this is the one.
  11. Sweet Stocking Filler - Paddywax Salted Caramel - No Christmas calories but it is packed with a scent of treacle, caramel, and a hint of spice.
  12. The traditional favourite - St Eval Figgy Pudding - perfect for anyones stocking, a sweet and fruity scent of Christmas pudding packed into a little tin.
