Our home is our shelter, our safe haven, our own little oasis of calm where we like to retreat from a stressful day or harsh winter weather. But it’s also our castle that we love having precious time with our family in or invite friends over to for spending some genial hours together. There’s no place like home, as Judy Garland used to say in The Wizard Of Oz, and it is true. We spent (probably) most of our time there, even if it’s almost just for sleeping. We return home after every travel, stressful day at work, adventure,… It’s the place where we collect our things and memories and create new ones, the place where we find back to ourselves, where we laugh, fight, cry and love.
In the darker months of the year, we spend even more time in our own four walls and therefore it is necessary to create an atmosphere that feels as comfortable as possible. We try to achieve this highest level of comfort by furnishing and decorating the rooms according to our own terms.
But in the end, it’s the little things that make the difference: Photos, plants, books, and souvenirs. Two main factors that contribute A LOT to a good atmosphere in a room, but which are always underrated or forgotten, are light and smell. Scented Candles provide both at once!
For the Christmas season, it is especially cozy to light a good smelling candle and let the rooms fill with vanilla or cinnamon smell. But also during the rest of the year, they make our homes feel more home-like.
Scented candles are one of the most popular gifts for Christmas and we understand why. As they are not one of the cheapest home accessories, we are ourselves thrilled to bits when we get one.
For the case, that you want to get a scented candle for one of your beloved ones, or you want to put it on your personal wishlist this year, we pre-selected the best ones out there to buy now:
