Winter weather may not be particularly kind to our skin, our hair, or our hot water bills, but when it comes to downtime, cold weather definitely comes out on top. After all, there are few things more satisfying than watching rain pound down outside from the comfort of your couch (with a glass of red in hand and an enviable Netflix queue, of course). The only thing that could up the cosy quota further would be the mood lighting and scented warmth that comes with a great winter candle. Personally, I’ve always liked leaning in to all the cold weather clichés, opting for spicy, sensual scents from sandalwood to cinnamon, but this season I’ve found that my top candle picks pair the traditional wintry notes we know and love with a little something surprising. Think heady vetiver with a splash of citrus, or smoky patchouli featuring a bouquet of florals – it’s like adding a little caramel to a classic hot chocolate; you’re taking something that’s already amazing and making it even better. These cold-weather candles are sure to ease the chill this winter – trust us, all five wicks are more than worth your while.
