Home fragrance, be it in scented candle form, a diffuser or a wax melt, is always one of my favourite things to give as a gift at Christmas because it evokes a sense of being all cosy and warm at home. Here I have four different gift options to share with you, ranging from the budget friendly to the #feelingspendy.
Budget Friendly: Bomb Cosmetics Little Hotties Gift Pack* (£15, link)
Bomb Cosmetics are well known for their quirky handmade bath bombs (I've used them in the past and they have some delicious flavours available!), and this year they've branched out and launched their new range of hand poured Little Hotties Wax Melts. There are over 50 different ones to choose from and you can either pick and mix your own selection or purchase them in a gift pack with an oil burner as shown above (the oil burner is also available to buy separately). A great gift idea for those on a budget and people who are looking for something a more youthful and fun!
Luxury: La Montana Candle in First Light* (220g, £35, link)
When I'm shopping for die-hard candle lovers, I tend to go for a luxury standalone product that's a bit more niche and interesting; something that they (hopefully) don't already own. La Montana have a small but beautiful selection of luxury scented candles which are inspired by Spain, the Mediterranean and holidays in the sun. I think this is quite a unique concept and the scents are just gorgeous. I have First Light which is described as an invigorating blend of mountain herbs and flora. There are distinct woody tones mixed with a fresh and floral earthiness - completely different to any candle I've ever had before and it creates such a lovely, inviting aroma to your home. The candle itself is made from natural wax and essential oils, are hand poured and burn for around 40 hours.
If you're interested, but not sure which scent to go for, you can order a free sample pack of blotting paper testers from La Montana to sniff first before splurging. Winter Oranges and Alfredo's Cafe are definitely on my personal Christmas wishlist!
Luxury: Pinks Boutique Petite Candle Collection* (£45, link)
If you're splashing out and treating someone special, you can't go wrong with this stunning candle gift set from Pinks Boutique, one of my favourite green pampering brands. The British company have really outdone themselves with this set of three luxury petite candles which are housed in chic dark glass. Inside you'll find three different scents; Jasmine & Ylang Ylang, Orange & Clove and Rose & Vetivert. All of the scents are beautiful and despite being small, they have an excellent throw. Each candle is 100% natural and made with high quality soya and vegetable waxes, which are blended with pure essential oils. Ethically sourced and handcrafted here in England, this is the perfect gift for a green beauty lover and will be appreciated by anyone who adores luxury candles.
I also love how this set comes complete with a box of long matches and is packaged beautifully, so there's no need to worry about wrapping it yourself as you can simply give it as it is.
Super Luxury: Connock London Hawaiian Nights Gift Box* (£68, link)
Looking for a complete luxury home fragrance set, but still want something different from all of the usual brands? Connock London have this ultra premium Hawaiian Nights Gift Box which features three products from their bestselling Kukui Oil range. Beneath the swathes of delicate scented tissue paper, your recipient will discover a full size Candle (220g), a full size Fragrance Diffuser (100ml), reeds, a box of long matches and a full size matching fragranced Soap (100g).
The Kukui Oil fragrance is Connock London's signature scent and is inspired by the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. It's a rich, heady scent which mixes notes of Moroccan Rose, Italian Bergamot, White Jasmine and Calla Lily with Sandalwood, Vetiver, White Amber and Vanilla Absolute. In my opinion, it's very floral and unashamedly sophisticated, so it would suit a more mature person who enjoys the finer things in life.
