12 Of The Best Festive Candles

Ensure that your home is redolent of Christmas with our selection of the dreamiest winter candles.

There’s nothing like lighting a few candles after a long day at work (or at home with the kids, and thus quite possibly accompanied by a glass). And few things have the power to instantly transform a room into an atmospheric wintry cocoon like candlelight. Throw in some deliciously rich and warming spicy scents, and they become a compulsory Christmas must-have. But with so many luxury brands out there to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start, which is why we’ve picked our twelve favourites to help you fill your home with the scent of Christmas.
