Scents can trigger emotions and memories, so, in the case of Christmas-y smells, they might bring to mind other festive periods you’ve had in the past and how you felt at the time. You might have felt loved, if you were surrounded by family and friends, grateful to be around those people or sentimental, reflecting on the year you’ve had.

One of the best ways to bring a Christmas-y scent into your home is with a candle. Not only can its flickering flame be a soothing sight, but a candle can really allow a smell to fill a space, with the scent often lingering long after you’ve blown it out. And these days, there is no shortage of options for Christmas candles.

From a candle smelling of blended spiced apple and red berries to another with a simple pine tree scent and yet another that’ll treat your nose to cookies, freshly baked, these are a few of our favourite Christmas candles. Might we suggest you gift yourself one of these to burn during the festive season?
