I know, the world and his wife is a little candle obsessed at the moment… but you just can’t beat the combination of being all cosy and the glow of a candle burning. Plus I love it when the aroma of a candle I love fills the flat. So here are three of my current favourites.
Timothy Dunn Arabian Fig*
SOOOO good. Smells amazing, very much a combination of spice and Christmas in combination. Very warming and makes me feel cosy and warm. This candle also comes beautifully packaged and promises over 60 hours of burn time – would make a lovely gift for Christmas.
Diptyque Amber Oud*
One that I mentioned HERE, from the holy grail of candles and another spice/Christmas mixture Love the design on the glass on this one and how the scent really does fill the room and feels festive, without the overload of cinammon or other traditional Christmas scents.
Last, but by no means least is my beloved Mimosa. This is my absolute favourite of the Diptyque core range and absolutely impossible to describe – the Diptyque website describes it as ‘Mimosa flowers brimming with the scent of hay and honey, dotting hills with the sea in the distance’. Which basically translates to a floral, with a sweet side to it I think. Whatever is the correct way to describe – I adore it, it’s always the one I find myself inhaling deeply to get a good lung full of the scent. I have a bigger size of this one in the ‘back up’ cupboard too – but working my way through the mini before I get started on it.
