Candles for Christmas are a sure thing, especially limited-edition ones made for the season that will never be available again. They are the perfect festive companions that fill your home with the scents of the season; pine, citrus and spice, in a chic way. But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to burn lots of money. Here are a few good staples, all under SGD100, that will bring the finishing touch to the joyful holidays.
For something that smells crackling and cosy, there is the Acqua Di Parma’s Notte Di Stelle 2019 Holiday Candle (SGD99 for 200 g) that emits warm and spicy balsamic notes of pine trees that are heated by the burning woods. The candle is also presented in glass designed by Italian artist Gio Pastori that will elevate any space.
Next up, Diptyque (B1-33A Takashimaya Shopping Centre) has created 3 botanically inspired scents for its Lucky Charms Holiday 2019 collection. The only problem is that they smell too good, making it hard to pick just one. There’s Lucky Flowers (a spicy blend of rose, clove and aniseeds), Blissful Amber (amber, geranium and lavender blended with the softness of musk) and Protective Pine (a woody-aromatic mix of pine, cedar, basil and sage), priced at SGD55 for 70 g or SGD100 for 190 g each.
And if delicious options are your thing, Jo Malone (B2-32 Takashimaya Shopping Centre) is offering up a delectable mix of Christmas fruits with its Orange Bitters Travel Candle (SGD80 for 60 g) with sweet orange, a splash of bitter orange and a sensual base of sandalwood and amber for that warming winter cocktail.
