I’m Seriously Fussy, But These Are the 15 Best Festive Candles This Year

I’m putting it out there: I’m a candle hoarder. I have drawers full of them. From fresh, airy scents to woody, spicy aromas, I’ve got a plethora of options in my collection—one for every mood. And as a candle obsessive, we’re finally entering my favourite time of the year. With Christmas approaching, I’m gearing up to unwrap all of the most festive scents in my collection and turn my home into a Christmassy grotto.The only problem is that when it comes to Christmas scents, I’m seriously fussy. The idea of filling my room with the sorts of traditional heady, sickly scents associated with Christmas makes me want to run for the hills.

These French Candles Can Always Be Found in the Most Stylish Homes

There are a few purchases that will always stand out in your memory—the first CD you ever bought (humble brag; mine was "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" by Prince), the first designer bag you acquire, and, perhaps, your wedding dress.

Over the past few days, I've instinctively found myself perusing new candles to invest in for autumn, but with so many scent options out there, it's overwhelming to know where to start. So I sought advice from someone in the know: Jo Malone CBE. Having launched her first brand, Jo Malone London, back in the '90s, Malone, who has been described as a British "scent maverick,"...
