Glasshouse Christmas Candles Australia
The Glasshouse Christmas range of candles is absolutely stunning this year and is our pick of the best Christmas candles Australia wide taking scents, packaging, vessels, candle quality and price into consideration.
Glasshouse have chosen the most celebratory Christmas red colour for this collection together with festive green and blue, all with accents of gold for the vessels and packaging. I absolutely love the luxe look of the Glasshouse Christmas bauble containing the mini candle inside.
All Glasshouse candles are triple milled and the range of festive scents available in the Glasshouse Xmas candles range this year is divine!
Glasshouse always has the best Christmas scented candles Australia wide. Some of the scented Christmas candles in the Glasshouse Christmas scented candle range include the:
- Night Before Christmas Candle – dancing sugar plums. This cult-favourite festive fragrance reminiscent of plum pudding is one that would delight any Christmas lover.
- Under The Mistletoe – a wonderfully festive blend of cinnamon, apple and red berries. This scent invites loved ones to step under the mistletoe.
- White Christmas Candle – cedar leaf and fruity cloves. This scent evokes the magic of freshly blanketed pines and roasting chestnuts.
- Gingerbread House Candle – festive spiced biscuit. Make this Christmas the most decadent yet, with this buttery, bourbon-spiked sweet and spicy delicacy.
Circa Christmas Candles
Another top candle brand with amazing Xmas scented candles is Circa Home.
Circa Home candles are Australian made, handmade and hand poured using natural soy wax.
The size of the Circa Christmas candles is 350g and the packaging is absolutely stunning!
A mini Christmas scented candle of 60g is found in the Circa Christmas Ornament.
The Circa scented Christmas candles range include the festive:
- Christmas Gingerbread Cookies Candle
- Christmas Raspberry & Rhubarb Candle
- Christmas Pine & Snow Gum Candle and more.
My favourite is the Circa Home Gingerbread Cookies scented candle.
Dusk Christmas Candles
Dusk have a huge range of Christmas candle designs this year including mesmerising metallic and delightful shimmery Christmas candles. Their festive gold spinners are especially spectacular.
They also have Christmas candles that combine native flora in a fusion of festive cheer. Not only are they perfect for decorating your home during the Christmas season, they are also a great Australian Christmas gift to send to family and friends overseas.
Parisian-based Diptyque is a luxurious, top of the range candle brand that any candle lover would absolutely love to receive as a Christmas gift.
Strictly speaking while these aren’t Christmas candles I can’t think of a candle brand I’d rather receive as a Christmas gift which is why I’ve included them in this guide.
Some of the amazing Diptyque scented candles include Mimosa, Baies, Tubereuse, Figuier, Roses and many more. Diptyque candles come in a small 70g size or a larger 190g size.
Diptyque candles are an amazing decadent gift, perfect for the special people in your life.
Candle Advent Calendar Australia
Candle lovers will absolutely love counting down the days in December until Christmas with their own candle advent calendar.
The best candle advent calendar Australia wide that we have found is the West Avenue Christmas Tree Advent Calendar.
Not only does this candle advent calendar contain 24 mini 50g scented Christmas candles including cinnamon and nutmeg, vanilla cookies and gingerbread scents but this Scandi look wooden advent calendar can be re-used each year, filling it with either mini candles again or your choice of other little goodies.
UPDATE: Unfortunately this candle advent calendar is no longer available.
Decision Making Factors To Consider When Buying A Christmas Scented Candle
There are several different key factors to consider when buying a Christmas candle to ensure you choose the best one to match your needs and wants.
Choose a scent that matches the Christmas mood you are wanting to create whether this be a Christmas baking type scent such as gingerbread or vanilla, a fresh fruity scent or a scent reminiscent of pines and roasting chestnuts for example.
Choose a candle with a vessel that matches and complements your Christmas decor whether this be a stunning Christmas red, gold, white or some other colour of your choosing.
Consider whether you are wanting Christmas candle bon bons to give as gifts or as Christmas table favours, Christmas candle baubles for your Christmas tree or Christmas scented candles for your Christmas table.
Consider the burn time of the candle you are considering buying. The larger the candle the longer the burn time usually. If you are wanting to burn your candles throughout your Christmas party make sure you buy a big enough candle and not one that will only burn for a time less than the duration of your party.
With scented candles price does matter. Cheaper candles usually do not fragrance a room as well as better quality ones.
Where To Buy Christmas Candles
This year I am doing all my Christmas gift and decor research online and then I’m buying online too. Online shopping is so much quicker and more convenient than buying in store. It eliminates the need to drive to various different physical stores, search for a car park, and then risk the product you are wanting being sold out in that store.
I have included links to online stores for each of the festive candles featured in this guide.
I hope this Christmas Candle buying guide helps make your Christmas planning, Christmas preparations and Christmas gift shopping easier this year.
For further gift-giving inspiration check out our Best Personalised Christmas Gifts Guide or our Best Christmas Books For Kids guide. Our Best Pool Toys guide may also be useful to you if you are planning outdoor pool parties during the holiday period.
Finally don’t forget to treat yourself as well. We all deserve some little daily indulgences in the lead up to Christmas this year. Christmas isn’t just about treating the kids and buying gifts for everyone else. You deserve treats too! Check out our Best Alcohol Advent Calendar and Best Food Advent Calendar buying guides for treats you will no doubt love.
Happy shopping and Merry Christmas!
