Scented candles offer an easy way to add a touch of elegance to any home. We've picked out some of our favourites to treat yourself (or someone else).
Scented candles are always a beautiful gift, no matter what time of year it is. But as it's friendship month here at Beaut HQ, we're feeling the love and thinking they could make a beautiful gift for a friend. Even if that "friend" happens to be yourself (nothing wrong with that!).
We've chosen six scented candles to suit different budgets, but any of which could make for a beautiful present.
Irish Candle Tins €12
Unique and definitely Irish, these scented candles come in 12 different fragrances. Our favourite is the Irish Ocean Breeze, but the Irish Coffee, Turf Fire and Irish Soda Bread are also worth a sniff. (Available at Dalkeyaromatics.ie)
Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Travel Candle €28
A mix of sweet and spicy make this a beautiful scent to unwind in the evening time. Even though it's a travel size, the burning time is an impressive 18 hours.
The Handmade Soap Company Lavender Rosemary Thyme & Mint candle €15.95
Hand-poured and made from 100% natural soy wax, we love this candle from another Irish brand The Homemade Soap Company. The warming natural oils melt away the stresses of the day.
L'Occitane Lemon Verbena €27
Refreshing and light, this is one of our all-time favourites. The cult classic L'Occitane Verbena fragrance gives a fresh, clean feel to any room, day or night.
& Other Stories Fågelbärsgården Scented Candle €19
Translated as "Yard of bird berries" this basil and fig based candle is inspired by a small, secret garden near the & Other Stories atelier in Stockholm. Oh, and it smells absolutely gorgeous!
Diptyque Constellation Holiday Candles €45 (reduced from €94)
We heart these 3 beautifully designed gold foil and glass mini candles. While still pricey, any Diptyque fans will know that €45 is a pretty good bargain from the luxury brand (available online with Brown Thomas)
