On a cold winter’s night, there is nothing more satisfying than coming home, lighting a candle and enjoying the warm glow and fragrance. Using certain scents within my home whether it be a candle, diffuser or a new room spray, they have all got to pass the Blu Blazer Guy test; Longevity, Intensity and Quality. So here are my favourite ones that will make the perfect gift for Christmas time or simply to warm up your own home.

Acqua Di Parma – Buongiorno

This is one of my favourite candles simply because it brings me joy when I light it. With its bright yellow packaging and glass vessel this sunny fragrances will certainly add colour to these dark winter nights.

The Oudh is freshened up with the rosy tones of geranium and a beautiful blend of amber, vetiver, patchouli and praline. This candle range have such a great price point for the quality and it’s one I highly recommend.

AHLT – Fygge

I’ve used this both the candle and diffuser from this company and absolutely loved it. Their range of scented soy candles with luxury fragrance oils are all hand poured in London and smell simply devine.

Fygee is my favourite, blending black fig, cedar wood and tonka bean. The notes blend together beautifully to give off a rich and luxurious smell that fills the air in no time.

The fragrance oozes sophistication and the perfect blend of masculine and feminine notes. The notes include Patchouli, Myrrh, Clove and Violet and are perfect at any time of the year.

If you are looking to splash out then why not treat someone to designer Tom Dixon’s fire candle. The beautiful and luxurious deep red vessel houses an unusual scent that is strangely addictive and intoxicating.
