With the holiday season comes the opportunity to burn all my favorite holiday candles and you better believe I am turning my apartment into a Christmas-y oasis with all the best Christmas candles this year. I have tried a lot of holiday candles over the years and the following are the best of the best.
The Best Holiday Candles:
So if you’re also ready to start the holiday spirit via scent, check out my roundup of all the best holiday candles to shop this year. A variety of them make great gifts for hosts and hostesses, too!
I purchase this every year! It is such a unique scent that says holiday without being woodsy. Pomegranate, Mandarin orange, pine, cloves and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla and amber. Cozy and festive. This one is available on Amazon so you can get it in a pinch if you’re a Prime Member.
Its festive metallic vessel is just one reason I love this candle. The other is the fact that it smells like a crisp winter day during the holiday season. Part pine, part cinnamon. Repurpose the glass afterwards for a chic carry-all. It’s one I am always repurchasing!
You guys know I love this brand and their Fallen Fir scent from the Holiday collection is so, so lovely. It is the perfect scent to burn when having people over for the holiday season in my opinion. Moody yet festive.
The brand also released additional new Holiday collection candles that all sound so good! Let me know if you try them out!
Not only does this candle make your house smell like a Christmas tree, it also comes in a beautiful mercury glass that you could re-use after your candle has burnt out. This one is also available on Amazon so you can get it in a pinch if you’re a Prime Member.
A more mellow and fresh candle if you’re not one for major fir-scents. This one is a lovely way to warm your home with a subtle yet cozy somewhat Christmas-y feeling scent. And this year it comes in the most darling polka dotted vessel!
A few other favorites holiday candles:
My friend Lindsay really nailed the scent of her original holiday candle. It features notes of Evergreen, Fresh Pine, Balsam Fir, Blue Spruce and it gives all the festive winter vibes you want in a Christmas candle. It also burns for 65 amazing hours, has great throw so your whole room will smell of it & it comes in a beautifully packaged box so it also makes a great gift. The brand now also offers Cabin and Chalet scented ones that sound amazing as well!
The most affordable good forrest-y candle I’ve found. Just $25!
This is a long standing favorite of mine. Such a Christmas classic. It is good enough to be a stand-in for a real Fir.
And by the way – they also offer this scent in an essential oil so if you have a diffuser I absolutely recommend you get it. It’ll make your whole space smell like a Christmas tree!
This French candlemaker does the most gorgeous scents and their new winter collection does not disappoint. The brand was kind enough to send me the new collection and I couldn’t even pick a favorite of the three released this year – they are *that* good.
A good candle for minimalists due to its sleek jar that would actually make a great vase after the fact. This candle is large and burns for 80 hours! It was a good impulse purchase I made on Amazon last year and I still have some to burn this season – it’s that big!
