[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] A welcome return for one of my favourite Christmas candles – I always think this goes a bit under the radar for some reason and yet, it’s really such a lovely scent.
It usually has a design make-over every year – they could probably do a bit more with that actually.. get some young designers onto it – but it’s always fairly subtle, just designed to fit in anywhere. And, it does. There’s enough cedar in this that it’s not a sweet, sickly aroma – there is cinnamon and spices but it’s more mulled wine than eggnog.
I think it’s nice to have at dusk to bring the day to a close and segue into evening especially if you’re working from home and need a line drawn. It’s not nearly as pricey as many other candles – the large is £26 and the small is £16 – and gives enough back in terms of ambience and flavour of the moment to not feel like a massive indulgence burning in front of your eyes :-). I’ve had this for the last five or six years, as well as the Elemis one (I don’t have that this year) and a Diptyque variant and like the cosiness they bring.

I always think someone should invent a New Year candle – a particular aroma that isn’t Christmassy but is still wintery and holiday-ish that can take us into January without us feeling it’s Christmas Eve all over again!
