It's no secret I'm a huge lover of candles, just try and show me a fellow bohemian who isn't! At the start of a season I enjoy nothing more that picking out a scented candle to burn within my home. Of course the holiday season is probably one of the best times to pick out fragrances to fill your home with, I love how a scent can whisk you way instantly and get you in the festive spirit.
This year I have been trying out Twig and Dot 2015 Christmas collection, oh my! as I mentioned I love seasonal scents but I still have a particular scent style which generally airs on the side of crisp and natural. The two I am currently burning are sleigh ride and merry kissmas.
Sleigh ride has a really fresh, crisp smell which I think is gorgeous over the holidays, especially with all the spiced holiday baking and cooking. When it comes to pine candles I think they have to be a high quality blend to avoid the "bathroom cleaner smell" so many seem to have. Sleigh ride achieve this perfect blend when burned, it really does have a delicate natural pine fragrance and mixed with the fir and resin result in the ideal crisp, fresh holiday.
My other candle is merry kissmas which is a completely difference scent style. Merry kissmas has a bright, fruity and lively smell, the blend has cranberry, pomegranate and mistletoe (it would be a perfect thanksgiving candle also) it makes the room deliciously tart and juicy. I had a lot of compliments on this fragrance as it's quite unusual. It is definitely festive but would be a gorgeous candle to burn throughout autumn and winter. I wish I had the merry kissmas in a large jar because that and sleigh ride smell amazing when burned together, like seriously amazing! They blend together so well.
The packaging for Twig and Dot candles are gorgeous and would make beautiful gifts. They are hand poured in a white milk glass style jar and the large ones are finished off with a silver lid to cover between burning. I love how clean the design is and because of this they honestly would suit any home style throughout the year! The burn time for these candles are pretty good, the large jars are 30-40 hours and the votive jars 5-8 hours.
On the Twig and Dot pinterest they have a board dedicated to the scent of their holiday candles here is sleigh ride and here is merry kissmass, such a fun way to get a visual vibe for the scent!
