Who doesn’t love the smell of Christmas? Each and every one of us associate Christmas with a particular smell and I’ve got two candles here that definitely evokes memories of the festive season, past and present! (Bloggers and their candles, eh!)
Both are a medium jar from IW Natural Candle which burns for 36 hours, and the scents are Fir Cone, and Festive Spice. Other ones available in their Christmas range includes Sweet Roasted Chestnuts, Fresh Fig, Mulled Wine and Strudle Spice.
Fir Cone is a green scent that reminds you of going for winter walks in the forest or park. It has a frosty and woody scent with a hint of pine. I want to say that the smell of this candle reminds me of a real Christmas tree, but I can’t remember what they smell like as we’ve not had a real tree for years!
Festive Spice is my favourite out of the two, it’s the one I’ve been burning the most this past week. It’s made with Christmas rose, frankincense, myrrh and Eastern spices. I don’t normally like spicy scented candles but this one is done really well. The floral note in it keeps it sweet as well as warm and to me, this definitely smells like Christmas!!
These candles are made of natural soy wax which is safer and burns cleaner than paraffin wax. Unlike Yankee Candle though, the scent throw from the two I’ve got are not that strong and lingering which is bad news for those who love strongly scent candles. However, for those who don’t like the overpowering fragrance (and not everyone does, as it can induce a headache or make someone feel nauseas) then perhaps you’re looking for one that adds ambience and a gentle light fragrance to your home, IW Natural Candle is the brand you’re looking for!
