Pine trees and cinnamon and winter berries... mmm.
With weather behaving as it is, the only thing we want to do in the evenings is curl up in front of the telly in our jammies, shrouded in a fluffy blanket.
Nothing completes this picture quite like a gorgeous, wintry scented candle – and these Irish companies are knocking the rest of them out of the park.
These candles are hand-poured in Cork – this one smells like a Christmas tree, and we couldn’t imagine anything more festive than that.
This warming, spicy candle from Wicklow-based company Max Benjamin will make even the chilliest room feel cosy.
Cinnamon, cloves, oranges and vanilla make this candle by Donegal company Field Day the perfect blend of sweet, spicy, and citrus scents.
For those who prefer sweeter scents, Brooke & Shoals have created a fruity, spicy candle that’s almost good enough to eat.
Pine, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove… Meath candle-makers The Handmade Soap Co are ticking all the boxes with this one.
The scented candles are the most underrated of Pippa O’Connor’s offerings – this one gives you all the smell of a real Christmas tree without pine needles all over the floor.
Did you know that the world’s oldest candle-making company is Irish? Rathbornes have been making candles for a couple of hundred years, so it’s only right they could make a gorgeously comforting, Christmassy candle.
Are you fancy? Then this candle is for you. The Galway-based Cloon Keen Atelier makes super luxurious home fragrances – Antique Library was inspired by the Long Room in Trinity College, and contains notes of leather, incense, nutmeg, cedar, and beeswax. Swoon.
