Candles are one of our winter essentials.
Candles bring ambience, warmth and fragrance to our homes and as the nights get darker and the air blows colder, candles are one of the best ways to bring cosiness into the evenings.
During the spring and summer months, I tend to reach for lighter scents or nothing at all, in the winter I feel much more inclined to burn candles and make it my ritual to light one every night.
For me, candles create all kind of emotions. That’s the main reason but there are others.
They conjure up a sense of nostalgia and prompt beautiful memories.
Candles add ambience to any room; real luminosity.
They can be a major feature in our decor.
Scents can set the tone of the season. I look forward to lighting my festive candles at Christmas time, and my woodier scented candles in the autumn.
Diptyque’s, Feu de Bois is the ultimate cosy night-in candle. Translated from French as a wood fire, it will transport us with its familiar, warm scent. Baies, also from Diptyque, this candle has notes of rose and blackcurrant for a darker floral and fruity scent. Perfect for those who still reminisce for the fragrances of seasons past.
Scented candles can turn our homes into the most relaxing environment. We can make our evenings so much more intimate and comfortable by lighting them. Like Vicki, I have mine burning in the sitting room, bedroom and always the bathroom.
