December 12, 2018
Welcome back to 2018’s edition of my favorite candles to light up this holiday season. Be sure to keep reading to the bottom to enter this year’s candle giveaway!
I’m so happy to continue this blog tradition and show you guys some new candles that made the list and old favorites. I burn an embarrassing amount of candles at home, so I’m always on the look out and shopping for more.

As for the holidays, there’s nothing like scenting the rooms (especially the one with my tree) with seasonal favorites and old faithfuls. I find that these are the perfect additions to make your home cheerful and in the holiday spirit. They also are so beautifully packaged that it makes for the perfect gift.
Read on for this year’s top five…
Shop: Fabled Juniper Berries & Lapp Pine, $50
I’m so happy to rediscover Molton Brown this year! I love using their bath products in the past, and recently just tried their candle collection. The jar is full of sparkle — the perfect festive touch to anywhere you’ll place it. For the holidays I love the balance of juniper berries and lapp pine wood in this candle.

They don’t disappoint with the two classic candles — last year’s fave, Joyful Glow (vanilla, cinnamon) and Soothing Glow (eucalyptus, lavender) for a peaceful spa-like atmosphere.
Shop: Basilic Patchouli, $35

Shop: Copenhagen, $42
Finally, I am bringing back Copenhagen! It’s such a feel-good scent of lingonberries and cedar wood. It’s become an annual favorite of mine. I find that I prefer this to other two holiday voyage scents — the warming Tahoe (vanilla, nutmeg) and wintry Chamonix (rosemary, pine). Plus, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous! It makes for such a great gift, which leads to the….
