Favourite Christmas Candles

I looove candles... especially Christmas scented ones. On the first of December we went to the local Yankee Candle store and stocked up on all their lovely festive scents.
Now there are lots of candle brands I'd love to try, but at the moment my favourite brand is Yankee Candle due to the large variety of scents and reasonable prices.
These are the candles I've been burning all over Christmas...

A traditional favourite of mine, I always get this candle. A festive treat at only £2-£3 and it smells really Christmassy.

I fell in love with the description of this candle. The scent reminds me of those traffic light lollipops and I only lit it on Christmas Eve; whilst wrapping presents by the Christmas Tree, during a bubble bath with my Christmas Eve bubblebar from Lush, and then finally before I went to bed with a glass of milk and mince pie for Father Christmas.

  1. Gorgeous photos, so festive!
    What did you find Christmas Tree like? really wanted to get that but couldn't find it anywhere Xx


    1. Thank you :)
      To be honest, I thought it was a little bit of a waste of money because we had a real tree anyway! haha but it made the room smell even more pine fresh. I guess if you don't have a real tree then it'd be really nice xx
