Why Are Candles So Important For Christmas?
Candlelight has been irrevocably linked to the festive season since the Middle Ages when a large candle would be burnt to represent the star of Bethlehem, a tradition that has continued in some homes to this day. Later, in the 1900’s, candles were used for the decoration of Christmas trees before fairy lights were created to mimic the hue of candlelight – a much safer option!
We believe candles are the best finishing touch to most occasions, but especially Christmas. They will add joyful character to your festive décor and are the most wonderful accessory to a charming table setting. Their natural flickering glow is welcoming and intoxicating, creating an indulgent ambience that heightens the ‘Christmas feels’.
Christmas soy candles also make the ultimate heart-warming Christmas gift, ideal for treating yourself, your home and the people you love.
What Scent Means Christmas To You?
When you ask people what scents make the best Christmas scented candles, the responses can be quite polarised. For some it might be the traditional scent of fallen pine needles, or spicy notes of cinnamon and clove. For others the juiciness of red berries and orange slices. For a wintery twist some prefer the fresh and frosty notes of peppermint, eucalyptus and soft musk florals.
How Can Apsley And Company Bring Christmas Into You Home?
We pride ourselves on creating home scent ranges that make a luxury style statement perfect for any home décor or occasion. For the Christmas season we keep with that classic yet contemporary stylized approach with the addition of a few sumptuous gems of festive character.
Scented Space White Fir Candle
A winter’s woodland walk
We like to be unique so don’t tend to go down the traditional route but it quite simply wouldn’t be Christmas without the poignant scent of fir in our homes and we have worked endlessly with our perfumers to create truly authentic fragrance for this year’s festivities. Our Scented Space White Fir Candle’s aromatic blend of fir balsam, cedarwood and amber inspires an evocative scent of snow-covered fir trees and fallen pine needles.
We have hand-poured this richly Christmas scented candle blend into emerald green tinted glassware, so luxuriant in colour it too is reminiscent of the magnificence of an evergreen forest. For that final touch of elegance, the glass is delicately embellished with our Scented Space logo in gold leaf foil, wrapped around the bottom of the candle.
Scented Space Botanical Candle Collection
A touch of tradition
To keep with the traditional theme we do feel a festive room setting wouldn’t say “Christmas” without a Botanical Candle so it was essential to create our Scented Space Botanical Candle . Available in two sizes – 900g and a giant Christmas candle at 1.1kg and 17.5cm in height. Each pillar is caringly hand poured by our crafters before being carefully decorated with hand-placed festive fruit and spices. To scent the candle, we have created an exotic fragrance blend of ylang ylang and lily with sparkling notes of citrus. This artisan process ensures that the candle appeals to multiple senses by looking engaging and smelling extraordinary.
Each candle is presented with a beautiful red grosgrain ribbon and protected with a sheer sheath, making it gift ready for a special someone or a perfect treat for self
