I hope you’re all doing well! Welcome to Blogmas Day 2! Today’s post is all about my favourite festive candles. I look for any excuse to buy candles all year round but when they start getting christmassy and seasonal – I cannot resist. It’s the perfect time of year to get cosy and have the house smelling like Santa’s grotto – what better way to do it than with candles? I thought I would share some of my latest finds with you from Homesense!

DW Home – Peppermint Bark
I discovered this candle this year and I am so glad that I did! I’ve actually bought back ups because I don’t want to run out (call me crazy but I am NOT risking it). The scent takes me back to my childhood! When I was younger, I used to go to the park with my dad and get an ice cream and I would always choose mint-choc-chip! It’s such a yummy smell and is perfect for making the house smell fresh and sweet!
Yankee Candle – Cinnamon Stick
It just doesn’t feel right to celebrate Christmas without some cinnamon scented candles! This is one of my absolutely favourites from Yankee Candle. It smells absolutely flipping amazing. It features Cinnamon (obviously), Clove, Cardamom and Cedar-wood. It literally smells like Christmas in a jar and it always makes me feel so festive!
DW Home – Christmas Morning
The DW Home Christmas Morning candle has been a festive must-have of mine for a couple of years now! I always have one of these prepared for Christmas as it’s possibly my favourite scent ever… It smells of sweet roasted coffee with hints of vanilla. It’s basically like walking into a cosy coffee shop!
Vila Hermanos – Christmas Spice
My best friend actually gave me this for my birthday, she knows me too well! It smells like a combination of the typical Christmas spice ingredients (cinnamon, ginger etc.) and something smokey. I can’t quite put my finger on it but it smells SO GOOD. It’s the perfect candle to light on a cosy movie night in!
DW Home – Sweet Peppermint
I couldn’t find the exact one, so the link above is for something really similar by DW Home! For some reason, I have a bit of a thing for all things peppermint at this time of year. I think it’s because they remind me of candy canes and all the festive sweet treats that emerge during the holidays. Also, the packaging is adorable! I will definitely be keeping the jar once I’ve finished with the candle!
DW Home – Gingerbread Cookie
This literally smells like I’ve been transported to a gingerbread village. It smells like Christmas baking and warm cookies! I’m actually giving this one as a gift this year so I will definitely have to get my hands on one for myself now that I’ve fallen in love with it! Annoyingly, I can’t find it online but so many places are selling gingerbread candles at this time of year so have a good old browse and see what you can find.
I hope you enjoyed my festive candle favourites! If you have any recommendations of favourites of your own, I would love to hear all about them in the comments. I’ve put links to all of my social media down below and I’d love it if you would come and say hi!
Yankee Candle Cinnamon Stick has always been a firm fav! some new brands here that i haven’t heard of before. My favourite candle maker of all time is Heart and Home
I was given it as a present a few years ago and I’ve been repurchasing it’s ever since! It smells absolutely amazing. I haven’t heard of them before – I’ll have a look at their products!
I have so many candles. Think I’m slightly addicted actually. Obsessed with gingerbread too, so you know which one I’m hunting down.
Me too! Candles are my guilty pleasure, I’ll always find an excuse to buy one when I’m out and about. Gingerbread is such a festive scent, I’m hunting some more down too!
I love my candles and do get different ones for different seasons, I love the variety you can get at Christmas I have not tried some of these yet but will look out for them, I do have a gingerbread one I am using at the moment that smells amazing
Me too! It’s so nice to have different ones for different times of year – I think autumn and winter are my favourites though! Gingerbread is a winter staple when it comes to scents!
Cinnamon has to be the Christmas classic scent, however, I’m intrigued to see what the Peppermint Bark smell is like
It smells delicious!
Oh these all sound amazing. I love candles but I don’t actually have any Christmas themed ones, I will have to change that!
You absolutely should! There’s nothing better than a festive candle at this time of year!
I can envision the smells of those candles once they’re opened! I bet your house smells so festive.
My room smells like a Christmas factory – but I’m more than okay with that!
Peppermint bark and gingerbread cookie are two of my favourites as well. But I have a lot of candles so I need to reduce my collection when we move and I can actually burn them, then I’ll be stocking up in Home Sense! x
Yeah it’s one thing buying them but getting through them all takes a while! I’ll be stocking up in the new year though!
I think I definitely need to check out the DW Home candles – those scents sound lovely. I’m a big fan of Yankee’s Cinnamon Stick.
They’re incredible! It’s one of my favourite candles too.
I adore candles and always have some on the go at home. Love the sound of the gingerbread cookie candle, gingerbread is one of my favourite aromas.
It smells like baking! Such a lovely scent!
Oo I do love a Christmas candle, I usually have one burning most evenings once the decorations go up to make it feel even more Christmassy! I love the sound of the Christmas morning scent, that sounds lovely!
It makes everything so much cosier! I love Christmas candles! Christmas morning is one of my favourites!
I have always loved the DW Home Christmas Morning candle. It has always been my go to candle at this time of year. I’m also curious of the other candles and may need to check them out soon. Great post.
It’s so good, isn’t it? I hope they bring it back again next year! Thanks for reading 🙂 x
Oh I love a good festive candle! Homesense is the best place to pick them up too, I still have a few autumnal ones I’m burning through that I picked up there.
They have so many! Plus I love how they often display them by colour or by scent as it’s so much easier to find what you’re looking for!
I love scented candles and cinnamon stick is definitely my pick from all of these wonderful items.
