25 of the Best Candles for Christmas

25 Best Christmas Candles 2017

Christmas is the most popular time of the year for people to burn candles. They can be used at gatherings with family and friends or be given as gifts for Christmas. Whatever the case may be it’s always a nice feeling to have a candle burning during the cold months to cozy up with.

Today we will be sharing some of the best and most popular candles for Christmas time. Unsure of what candles to light up during this holiday season?

Allow us to recommend some of our personal favorites for this time of the year!

(The candles with a ‘*’ beside them are my current personal favorites for Christmas)

1. Woodfire by Illume Candles *

Via Illume
Via Illume

We actually included this in our favorite fall candles list from 2015, but we love it so much that I had to add it for winter of this year.

Price Range: $$$

2. Spiced Pomander by LAFCO *

‘Spiced Pomander’ is in the LAFCO lineup for it’s 2020 holiday collection, and this one is a winner. Not only one of their best holiday scents, but also one of our overall favorite scents from them.

Price Range: $$$

3. Frasier Fir by Thymes *

Want a candle that will almost instantly fill a room with the smell of a Christmas tree? This candle is a well-known favorite for achieving that very fragrance. And not with that cheap car freshener-type pine scent. No, this candle smells like the real deal.

Price Range: $$$

4. Fallen Fir by Otherland *

Otherland candles released their winter lineup for 2020 and it features all 6 of the scents from their previous ‘Gilded Collection’.

These candles are absolutely gorgeous and are made from a soft coconut & soy wax mix. This gives them a nice long lasting burn but also some excellent fragrance throw.

You can also get these candles personalized, making them some of the best gifting candles around. The one downside is that you can only buy them from the official Otherland website online.

Price Range: $$$

5. Sparkling Cinnamon by Yankee Candle

I don’t usually go with too many Yankee candle scents but this one is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. One of those warm and inviting cinnamon scents that is perfect during the holidays.

Price Range: $

6. Amber Feather by Diptyque

Amber Feather is from the new Diptyque holiday collection for 2020. The scent features notes of orange, ginger, amber, and cinnamon for a nice classic combination around the holidays.

The beautiful artwork of the candle is done by Parisian artist ‘Ugo Gattoni’ who created the story behind the collection.

Price Range: $$$

7. Winter White by Illume Candles

Winter White was a new fragrance for Illume’s 2018 holiday lineup and has stuck around since.

It features notes of evergreen and cypress, mixed with white peppercorn, cardamom, and citrus.

It’s got me feeling festive just describing it.

Price Range: $$$

9. Feu de Bois (Woodfire) by Diptyque *

feu de bois grand candle
The Grand, 5-wick, 53 oz Feu De Bois (Woodfire) Candle

This candle perfectly captures the fragrance of a wood-burning fireplace on a winter night. Diptyque are experts at creating scents and this is one of their best sellers.

The ultimate in wood fire scented candles, this 5-wicked, oversized candle comes in at 53 ounces!

While it is also fairly pricey because it is a luxury brand and so large, it does work out to less dollars per ounce when you compare it to the regular Diptyque candles.

We go over this more in depth on our Diptyque scent ranking post, but to sum it up, the small candles can run upwards of $15 / oz while these massive ones will cost you around $6.50 / oz at their full price. Pretty crazy!

Price Range: $$$$

10. Balsam & Cedar by Illume Candles

Via Illume Candles

This scent is a cult favorite scent by Illume all year round but the best time of the year that you can burn it is around Christmas. Pictured above is the sanded mercury glass version which I think looks the best but there are plenty of sizes and containers to choose from on their website.

Price Range: $$$

    Hello, I am a candle addict and have discovered a new brand that I fall in love with.
    Espectacular designed, very pleasant fragrance, they use eco-friendly materials. I bought it 2 months ago and use it almost every day and still have it, burns really slow.
    I discovered them in a por store in my trip to Spain, but recently discovered that they sell online you can check them out in https://www.lellar.com/

    Hope you like them as I do,
    Regards, Andrea
