Spread the warmth of the holiday season with these Christmas candles

There is no better way to light up the room than with warm, soothing scents. A therapeutic treat for your senses, here are five Christmas candles that will make wonderful additions to your holiday cheer:

Annick Goutal Ambre Candle, RM429

Annick Goutal illuminates your home with a veil of warmth by way of scent—a candle of midnight blue elegantly emblazoned with the iconic AG monogram in gold, it evokes a warm fuzzy feeling with enchanting hints of vanilla, patchouli, benzoin and labdanum. 


Diptyque Liquidambar, price n/a

Delve into diptyque’s imaginary forest with the Liquidambar. A limited edition candle dedicated to the olfactory attribute of autumnal trees, its enveloping liquid amber is spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon, then masked in the scent of brown sugar, emitting sweet, warm gourmand accents.

The diptyque holiday collection will be available in November 2015.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Mon beau Sapin, price n/a


Reminiscent of the comforting scent and decorative ornaments that surrounds Christmas, this candle illuminates with a sweet, delicate flamboyance. Drawing its fragrance from the emblematic holiday tree—the balsam tree—it certainly makes the most delightful holiday gift.

Cire Trudon Gabriel, RM379

The impressive legacy of Cire Trudon shines through in Gabriel: an exquisite, rustic scent with notes of leather, cashmere wood, and candied chestnuts.  Welcome a luxurious warmth to your home and let the fragrance work its magic while you weave happy, cosy memories with your loved ones. 

Miller Harris Stars, price n/a

A wonder to behold, this set of candles by Miller Harris is a constellation of three distinct scents to match the star in your life’s every mood. For the Rock Star: a smoky base moves mysteriously through a haze of cedar, vetiver and santal, revealing an undertone of nutmeg and warming cumin. Youthful and fresh, the Super Star captures the green, desirable notes of fresh figs, topped with notes of rosemary, Cypress and Sicilian lemon for a refreshing twist. Last but not least, the Wild Star—an entrancing woody scent bearing hints of rosemary, with a faint dusting of thyme.
