Blogmas Day 3: My Favourite Festive Scents

The topic of the post will be favourite festive scents, and will include a few candles and a room spray. They all come with a reason why I love them and they are also crazy affordable, so you can definitely gather some inspiration for yourself or for a gift idea.

Also today’s post is a collab with this gorgeous gal Caitlin. She’s also doing Blogmas, and she’s a way ahead of me, so definitely go and check her blog out!

Primark Candle with decoration – £3.50

For the Decoration: I’ve got this on my trip to Edinburgh, when I popped in a Primark to warm myself a little bit. Then I saw this gorgeous candle and I though it would look amazing on the Christmas table! It’s supposed to be scented, but once lit, you can barely smell something. It’s beautiful though, and I can reuse the jar once the candle is over.

Marzia’s Lavender Candle

For the Packaging: I’m not sure if you could buy this candle on its own, because I received it with my Floral Box a few months ago and I believe it was limited for the subscribers only. I can’t really describe you the scent, but I loved the snowflake pattern on the lid and that’s why I decided to include the candle in this post!

Chelsea Candle – £5

For the Oils: Again, terrible at describing aromas, but there’s another reason why I though this candle is perfect for winter – when it burns, you get incredibly scented oil, instead of just wax, which you then can apply on your skin. How amazing is that!

Wax Lyrical – English Lavender – £5

For the Size: That candle is huge!! I’ve been using it every night for a week now, and I haven’t even got near the half of it! The scents is very warm and calming, perfect for going to bed or relaxing in the bath tub.

Primark Gingerbread Room Spray – £3

For the Scent: If that’s not the most Christmas scent ever, I don’t know what would it be! It’s so amazing, it actually smells like tons of gingerbread. I’m obsessed spraying it all the time, however, it doesn’t last very long but you get what you pay for, right!

So those were all of the candles worth mentioning in this post! Have you tried any of them and if not, which is your favourite scent for winter? Thanks for reading,

    I hate when you buy candles that claim to be scented, but once you light them there’s no scent 🙁 That gingerbread room spray sounds so cool 😀 Never tried one before.

    Your photos are AMAZING!! When you step into someone’s house and they were baking earlier it just smells so good, so I guess that would be my favouite Christmas/winter scent! xx
