6 Christmas Candles Smell Tested by Us

The best scented candles for Christmas

We smell-tested ten amazing candles for Christmas and narrowed it down to our favourite six.

Christmas isn’t really Christmas until you’ve surrounded yourself with a plethora of beautifully scented festive candles. From woody scents of fresh pine trees in the snow to the sweeter scents of spiced berries, there’s a scent created by any type of festive vibe you can think of.

Here are our favourite Christmas scented candles:

Raww Aromatherapy Festive Spice – Warm Spicy Caramel RRP $24.99

This triple-scented candle smells like a rich butterscotch Christmas pudding, dripping with cinnamon-spiced caramel sauce. It’s a sweet candle with notes of Cinnamon, Sugar Cane, Maple, Butter Cream and Vanilla and best burnt of an evening after dinner. If you aren’t a huge fan of super sweet candles, we recommend you limit the burn time of the candle, as it gets stronger in scent the longer you burn it.

Palm Beach Christmas Balsam & Fir RRP $42.95

A soft fusion of both sweet and woody, this candle smells like a pine forest that has been overrun with wild berries. With over eighty hours burn time, this candle will last you all through Christmas and is perfect for burning in the morning to kick start your festive cheer. There are more than thirteen scents used in this candle, without favourite being Balsam, Nutmeg, Floral, and Citrus.

Ecoya Wild Strawberry Frose RRP $42.95

If you prefer your Christmas a little more Aussie, with berry topped pavlovas and chilled fruity Frose this is the candle for you. It’s sweet-smelling and made with the notes of freshly harvested strawberries and tropical fruits and is the best burn during the day, especially when you have friends over a seafood barbecue.

The Body Shop Frosted Plum Scented Candle RRP $44

This is a new scent for The Body Shop Christmas range and is a mixture of both sweet and woody. It’s fresh and floral with notes of peony and juicy plums. Imagine mulled wine served with a slice of berry frosted chocolate yule log – delicious. This is the candle you’ll want to burn on Christmas Eve, as the scent is vibrant, yet warming.

Bath and Bodyworks Spiced Gingerbread RRP $44.95

Warm and spicy, and best burned whilst eating a delicious traditional Christmas feast on Christmas day, this festive candle will send you to the mountains of Germany, where green hills are dotted with gingerbread houses and little gingerbread men are dancing in the fields. Made using the scents of Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Vanilla is not too sweet and with a dash of just the right amount of sugar.

Dusk Pine and Amber Green Christmas RRP $34.99

Oh yes, it’s just not Christmas without a pine-scented candle, and you must add at least one into your arsenal of festive-inspired candles. Dusk has created the perfect Christmas Tree inspired candle, and you can burn this candle any time of the day, as the scent is a perfect balance of woody notes, mixed with fresh pine needles and amber.
