Acqua di Parma Magia del Camino Candle
Dress up the atmosphere in magic and woody goodness with Acqua di Parma’s seasonal exclusive Magia del Camino. We’re talking about spicy and warm incense notes, perfect as an unconventional scent that still hits close to home. You can look forward to the rapturous flames dancing in notes of roses and violets from the beautiful guaiac wood–accompanied by camphoraceous undertones. Better yet, its enchanting red glass jar sprinkled in gold and green doubles up as the perfect Christmas decoration.

Diptyque Citrouille Candle
While we may associate fruity candle scents with more conventional citrus or zesty notes, Diptyque’s French-made candles now arrive with a limited edition, seasonal twist. Harking the autumn season, it’s the humble pumpkin that’s celebrated here. Presented is a cosy blend of crisp freshness inspired by the fruit’s flesh, and overtones of striking spice. The hand-poured candle, featuring the highest-quality wax, draws inspiration from pumpkin pies and delicate chestnuts for an inviting ode to warming holiday memories.
