Oh la la, it’s December and ya know what that means… CHRISTMAS TIME is here! I love Christmas, especially the smell of Christmas…. Gingerbread cookies baking in the oven, the smell of pine trees and eggnog!
The only problem is well, we live in South Africa! So, Christmas smells for us usually lean toward braaied meat and HTH. Not very Christmassy if you ask me. HAHA!
But fear not. If you yearn for a true Christmas smell, I’ve rounded up a few goodies you can get to fake that Christmas smell and make your home smell amazing for the holidays…
Check out these favourite Festive smells
DiptiqueÂ Pine Tree of Light Candle
Oh my gosh guys, this candle is everything! I sniffed it the other day at Edgars and was instantly transported to pine tree heaven!
It smells like Christmas; a green, gorgeous Christmas as if you’re walking among the fir trees and cedars.
I love the design of this one as much as I do the scent, and if you’ve got moolah to spend or your nose dominates your pocket, then you’ll love the Diptique Holiday Collection candles.
In the collection are three gorgeous festive scents, including; Pine Tree of Light,Â Exquisite Almond and Amber Balm.
I was totally smitten by the smell, I did’nt get chance to take down the prices of these candles at Edgars, but I remember the medium sized candle was just shy of R1000.
Crabtree & EvelynÂ NoÃ«l Room Spray
Another gorgeous, fresh and festive scent is Crabtree & Evelyn’sÂ NoÃ«l home fragrance collection for the holidays.
Spritz your home with this gorgeous Room Spray and transport yourself to admiring the Christmas tree in front of a crackling fire place, while the scent of spices mulling wafts through the air.
This year Crabtree & Evelyn’s iconicÂ NoÃ«lÂ home fragrance collection gets a groovy limited edition look with the 2018 design channeling the infamous 70’s Carnaby Street Vibe.
The collection features the festive 200g NoÃ«l Poured Candle (R400 – R950), 100ml NoÃ«l Room Spray (R450) and the 200ml NoÃ«l Reed Diffuser (R1650).
