Whilst December was a month for burning the candle at both ends, this month sees our Saturday nights in snuggled up on the sofa, detoxing diets and stowing away the party shoes. Combatting our frugal January blues with a different sort of indulgence, we’re replacing cocktails with candles. Combined with a good chick flick, a relaxing bath, or a romantic meal in for two, they’re the perfect pairing to an evening in front of the fire too.
Neom Organics Scent To Make You Happy 3 Wick Candle, £45
Not just for evenings, we’re starting the day positively and burning this uplifting boost before work. With notes of cut grass and peppermint and essential oils of mimosa and lemon, that balance emotions and ward off worries, it’s as good as a caffeine fix.
La Montana First Light Candle, £35
When you’re wrapped up in onesies but reminiscing of warmer days, light this. Inspired by the scents of Spain’s mountain villages, it fuses fresh fennel with forest pine and orange for a light, indulgent scent that transports you abroad.
Birch & Brook Library Scented Candle, £38
If you’re enjoying the cosy climate and want a heady scent to fill the room from rug to rafters, you’ve met your match. Warming and heady, the cedarwood, cinnamon and clove buds conjure up images of well-thumbed pages in worn leather-clad books.
No.22 Woodstove Candle, £38
This smells as good as it looks. Combining woody notes with smoky cinnamon and musk, it’s the candle equivalent of a comforting and cosy cashmere cardigan. Like a hug for your house.
This Works Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle, £25
One for bathtime burning, this is fragranced with Lavender and Camomile to promote a better night’s sleep and soothe away a stressful day, just don’t forget to pair with a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on the door too.
