Scents to match your favourite Christmas films

Scents to match your favourite Christmas films

Who doesn’t like snuggling down on the sofa with their loved ones and a festive film at this time of year?! It’s a great opportunity to get cosy, make some time for yourself and get into the Christmas spirit. As well as choosing the right movie, you need to create an atmosphere to match. We’ve got all the Scented Candles you could need for a wonderful fragrance and soft glowing light.

It’s a Wonderful Life

Let’s start with a classic that’s hard to beat. It’s a Wonderful Life is the heartwarming tale of the dashing George Bailey and his guardian angel Clarence. Nothing could be more splendid than James Stewart’s character talking about lassoing the moon for Donna Reed. Team this timeless film with the Frosted Wreath Candle in a Glass for notes of sweet pine, seasonal berries and sandalwood to enhance the mood.

And just remember, every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.

Love Actually

Of all the Christmas films, it’s Love Actually that gives us all the fuzziest of feelings. With eight individual love stories to follow, from young Sam and Joanna to Jamie and Aurelia, everybody’s got their favourite. The warm glow you get from the movie can only be coupled with the Mulled Wine Candle in a Tin. Make the whole room smell of cinnamon, cloves and citrus fruits before you press play.

If there’s one thing you’ll take away from Love Actually, it’s that there were lobsters and an octopus at the birth of baby Jesus.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

There’s a delicious Heyland & Whittle Scented Candle to go with every Christmas film this season, so make sure you know which one will set the atmosphere.

A great film for watching with the whole family, The Muppet Christmas Carol is a concept that shouldn’t really work, but totally does. It turns out that an old-fashioned tale of morality by Charles Dickens, Michael Caine in the main role and a sprinkling of furry puppets is the ultimate recipe for Christmas cheer. We think Mr Scrooge would approve of the earthy fragrance of the Amber Oakmoss Candle in a Glass.

Be warned, the plight of Tiny Tim will not leave a dry eye in the house.

The Holiday

When it comes to feel-good Christmas films, The Holiday is at the top of the list. We just love the wintry English cottage, Jude Law as a misunderstood single parent and the lovely relationship between Iris and Arthur over in LA. This temptingly too perfect movie is destined to be enjoyed with the Clementine & Prosecco Candle in a Glass. Pour yourself some real fizz too and really get into the spirit.

After watching The Holiday, you may be seriously considering a house swap for Christmas 2020.

The Snowman

Nostalgic and familiar, nothing says Christmas like The Snowman. Raymond Briggs’ beautiful illustrations are instantly recognisable and Aled Jones singing Walking in The Air is enough to send shivers down your spine, even if you’re nice and warm indoors. The Festive Spice Candle in a Tin is the home accessory equivalent of The Snowman with its warm spiced scent that will transport you back to Christmases of old.

Everyone wants their own snowman best friend for Christmas.
