Few things invoke the Christmas spirit more effectively – or tastefully – than a decent scented candle. Brogue shines a light on three of the best:
Cire Trudon Gabriel
A seasonal smoke-fest, bolstered with candied chestnuts, moss and fresh birch. The aroma alone should get you in the mood for celebration.
Sparkling incense courtesy of elemi (a tropical tree resin), spicy cloves, heady incense and a burst of sweet vanilla.
Inspired by catholic churches, this darkly evocative blend offsets carnation with papyrus and clove for a scent that’s redolent of midnight mass.
