Festive Fragrances

By , December 21, 2010

Awaken the Christmas spirit in all who cross your front door this winter with the warming aromas of some exceptional Christmas candles. Spa brand candles are popular year-round for re-creating that spa atmosphere in the home, so why not put a seasonal twist on things over the coming weeks for extra cheer? Read on for some of our favourite spa brands’ limited edition festive fragrances, as well as some of the other winter-warmers on offer.

Aveda recently released their seasonal Grounding Ritual candle for a limited Christmas run. Created with cold nights in mind, the candle is scented with organic cassia, vanilla and ginger and comes in a gorgeous box with a tagua nut accessory when ordered online at

Espa CandlesEspa are offering a limited edition Fireside Tales candle this Christmas, scented with sandalwood, vanilla, sweet orange, cloves, cinnamon and coriander – nearly good enough to eat! Presented in show-stopping packaging typical of Espa, this candle makes for a very well-received Christmas gift. See for delivery details.

Elemis CandlesElemis is a hugely popular spa brand in Ireland for face and body treatments, but unknown to many they also sell a range of spa standard candles. Some particularly Christmas-y scents are to be found with The Spa Candle and The Cedarwood Spa Candle – a mixture of cinnamon, orange and vanilla; and cedarwood, eucalyptus and rosemary respectively. An ideal gift, as these scents aren’t overwhelmingly reminiscent of Christmas and so can be used year-round. Elemis candles are available to purchase from
