If there is one gift item that literally anyone on your Christmas list would love, it’s a candle. With a candle you don't have to worry about getting the right colour or the right size, they’re perfect for even the smallest of places, and they’re easy to pack into a suitcase. You could be searching for the perfect holiday gift to take back home with you from Malta, something a little different that's hand made in-store, and with such distinctive branding, tells you exactly where it came from.
Now all you have to do is choose the right fragrance and we've listed our five favourite Christmas candle scents to help you choose a candle that you, your friends or family will love. All of our candles are big hits with both men and women of all ages so you’ll have something for everyone on your list, whether they've been good or naughty!
If you don't have a real Christmas tree in your home, and even if you've used the same fake tree for years, you can still give your home that special seasonal something that will add a hint of nostalgia to your holidays.
Our Christmas Tree scented candle is a rich herbal fragrance that is dominated by the scent of Siberian pine, alongside fragrances of eucalyptus and precious woods. This Christmas candle smells so much like a Christmas tree even Santa could be fooled!
Gingerbread? In a candle? Take my money!
Who doesn't love the smell of freshly baked gingerbread? I'm sure we've all tried a few gingerbread fragrances over the years, but we have never really found one that we liked enough to stock until now.
It's got that gingerbread scent that you love but with the spices of cinnamon and clove and notes of maple syrup, caramel and vanilla.
Nutcracker, as the name implies, is a sweet and creamy fragrance of freshly roasted chestnuts and walnuts combined with soft, spicy nuances of white ginger, cinnamon and clove, amidst a dash of fresh coffee and vanilla.
Out of all of our scented candles, this one is right up there for those with a sweet tooth.
APPLE STRUDEL & SPICE
Apple Strudel is a traditional Viennese strudel, a popular pastry in Austria, Bavaria, the Czech Republic, Northern Italy and Slovenia. Over the years it has also become synonymous with Christmas time in many other places around the world.
Our Apple Strudel fragrance is a sweet blend of apple, vanilla and added warm spices that all come together in this classic seasonal fragrance, so good that you could eat it (but we wouldn't recommended it!).
FRANKINCENSE & MYRRH
Have you ever asked yourself what frankincense and myrrh even are? Well, let us tell you that they are both saps or resins that are extracted from trees in the Boswellia and Commiphora families respectively, and both frankincense and myrrh are prized for their alluring fragrance.
Our recreation includes a festive fruity blend with notes of lingonberries, raspberries, blueberries and tart cassis interwoven with a blast of orange, and bergamot top notes, a creamy base of vanilla adds a comforting warmth.
It even comes in a gold effect tin, to complete the three wise men's shopping list!
