Calling All Candle Lovers
We burn the candle at both ends mamas, so why not do it in style with a fabulous festive scented version! There are plenty of things I love about Christmas but it’s the smells associated with this time of year that instantly bring back memories and get me feeling festive! And, being a sucker for fragranced candles, I’ve done a fair bit of research on which ones capture all those delicious smells and get the house feeling even more Christmassy and smelling like you’ve been baking gingerbread all day… (we can always pretend…).

Bath & Body Works 3 Wick Fresh Balsam Candle

Pure Candles Dubai ‘Tis The Season
I love supporting local so Pure Candles, made right here in the UAE from eco-friendly soy wax, are an absolute winner. And for Christmas? Their ‘Tis The Season’ scent – a beautiful combination of apple, oak, balsam, fir and pine with a touch of cinnamon and clove too is too YUMMY! Oh and they do a ‘Crisp Champagne’ candle too….because that’s also what Christmas is about for me.
