Scents for the season: festive fragrance for every room
There’s nothing like a festive scent to make your home feel truly Christmassy. So, with the most wonderful time of the year not so far away, we’re fully embracing the cosy season with flickering candlelight and scents that conjure up the most magical festive memories. Sound delightful? Read on to discover the perfect festive fragrances to fill every room in your house this Christmas.
For the hallway
Give your guests a festive welcome with a classic winter scent to fill your hallway. The subtle frosted pine and mistletoe fragrance from our Wrendale Designs collection will transport you to an alpine forest covered in snow. Choose from either the Wrendale Designs Oh Christmas Tree Candle or the Guinea Pig Sprouts Candle, both filled with top notes of orange, lemon and blackcurrant and underpinned by a cool herbal character from sage and geranium. Combining long-lasting fragrance with the beautiful designs of Hannah Dale, these are a must-have for any festive family home.
For the kitchen
Keep your kitchen smelling of sweet, festive bakes all winter with the next best thing to home baking – a delicious-smelling candle or reed diffuser infused with the comforting scent of cinnamon. The Colony Cinnamon Bakes Candle is filled with citrus top notes leading to a heart of roasted cinnamon, ginger and clove, all enveloped by a base of sweet biscuit, brown sugar and vanilla. With a bright, red-coloured wax, there’s no arguing that this candle is perfect for the festive season. Pair with the matching reed diffuser to allow the fragrance to fill your kitchen all day.
For the living room
Create a cosy atmosphere in your living room this Christmas with a scent that’s relaxing and indulgent but not too overpowering. Your lounge is where you’ll be spending time watching Christmas movies, relaxing with family and potentially entertaining guests, so make sure it’s scented with a fragrance that complements and doesn’t tire easily.
Our frankincense and myrrh fragranced candles and reed diffusers are the perfect choice for an indulgent festive scent that’s not too sweet and sickly, offering a sweet bouquet with light citrus top notes on a base of patchouli, tonka bean and musk. Choose from our Colony Medium Candle with its creamy-coloured wax and gold lid, the matching glass reed diffuser, or the All I Want for Christmas Advent Candle, which you can burn down as a countdown to Christmas.
For the bedroom
As well as many moments of joy, Christmas can also be a stressful time with lots of planning and organising needed for the big day. Be ready to transport yourself to a place of calm and serenity with the help of a soothing scent, and what better place to be to fully relaxed than your bedroom?
Our beautiful Sara Miller London Chelsea Home Fragrance Gift Set not only looks stunning but is filled with a relaxing fragrance of mandarin tuberose and wild musk and comes with a matching mug decorated with 22-carat gold detailing. After a long day, light the candle to unveil a fusion of soothing florals with tranquil notes of jasmine and orange blossom and a sensuous base of amber and wild musk. Sit back with your matching mug and allow the calming scent to work its magic.
For the bathroom
Whether getting ready for the day, relaxing in the tub or ensuring it’s guest-ready, make sure your bathroom smells just as good and as festive as the rest of the house. Our Made in England Sugared Plum scent offers a sweet, festive fragrance that’s perfect for small rooms. With top notes of peach, this natural fragrance has hints of pear and red berries on an indulgent base of vanilla and musk. Place the plum-coloured reed diffuser on your bathroom windowsill or shelf for fuss-free scenting all season long.
