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…).

the best festive smelling candles

Marks & Spencer Mandarin Cinnamon & Clove Set of 6 Votives

Not only do they smell divine but these beautiful votives burn for 15 hours each with a warm red glow that bathes a room in festive light (and is really flattering on your skin-tone too!).

AED 115 online at and in all Marks & Spencer stores. 

Bath & Body Works 3 Wick Fresh Balsam Candle

Literally Christmas in a jar – if you haven’t got the luxury of a real tree at home then fake that unbeatable smell with this mix of Woodland Balsam, Crisp Eucalyptus, Fir Branches and Cedarwood– utterly divine. I’m obsessed.

Psst… this store always has amazing promotions – be prepared to come out laden with scented goodies.

From AED 95 in all Bath & Body Works stores.

diptyque smell of Christmas

Diptyque Le Roi Sapin

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how lovely are your branches… The incredible smell of a lush, pine-laden forest steeped in the woody tones of resin, cedar and patchouli.

AED 175 for 70g and AED 330 for 190g at all Diptyque Stores in Dubai 

eco friendly candles made in the UAE

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.
