1. Thymes Frasier Fir Pine Needle Christmas Candle
This 6.5-ounce Christmas candle from Thymes is a crowd favorite for its remarkably crisp scent. The clean, green notes of fir needles, cedarwood, and sandalwood are a near-exact scent match for a fresh-cut tree, which is perfect for those who’ve opted to go with an artificial one this year.
2. Scentsicles Tree Ornament Scented Sticks
These six scented sticks provide a more family-safe alternative to a lit Christmas candle. A holiday favorite of The Strategist, users can hang them by their included hooks high up on their artificial Christmas tree to enjoy the instantly recognizable smell of balsam fir, juniper berries, and clementine rind all season long.
3. Homesick Jewish Christmas Scented Candle
On a completely different end of the holiday scent spectrum, this one eschews all of the pine-sprig and woodsy notes, for something that’s no less nostalgia-inducing. If December 25 to you is more about the savory saltiness of Chinese takeout and the buttery aroma of movie-theater popcorn, then this Jewish Christmas candle is one that’ll pull at the heartstrings.
4. Otherland Tapestry Candle
Arguably the sexiest scent of the bunch, this beautifully designed candle from Otherland is one to buy for Christmas, and break out for special occasions year-round. Its darkly sophisticated blend of burnt maple, oud, and vetiver is both smoky and musky, like a slow-burning fireplace in your favorite date-night spot.
5. Yankee Candle Holiday Pomegranate Candle
Juicy red fruits like pomegranates, apples, and cranberries showcase a sweeter side of the winter holidays. This scent from Yankee Candle smells like a decadent berry compote that’s simmering on the stovetop, offering the warmest welcome to all holiday guests who enter your home.
