Getting festive: Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh

Getting festive: Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh

You may not want to think about it just yet, but there's no denying that Christmas is just around the corner. The festive season will soon be upon us, bringing with it cosy evenings, great food and an excuse for presents.

For us at Heyland and Whittle, it also means brand new fragrances that sum up Christmas and mean you can make gifts extra special.

On October 1st, you'll be able to get your hands on three new festive scents that will have you feeling Christmassy in no time. Perfect for the autumn and winter seasons, our Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh fragrances have been crafted using some of the best essential oils around.

Each of the scents will be available in candles, reed diffusers, soaps and bath melts, giving you plenty of excuses to spoil yourself or your loved ones this Christmas.

To help you decide which of our new products seems perfect for you - if you can pick between the three - here's what you can expect from each of the fragrances:


All that glitters is definitely gold and we have the sparkling scent to prove it. Gold is chock full of Mediterranean citrus notes to brighten up dark winter days and nights. The rich fragrance features vibrant and bold notes that are enriched by deeper tones of lavender and neroli, adding subtle but effective floral aspects to the mix.

To help warm it up and fight off the cold of the season, there's some spice thrown in in the form of cardamom and coriander, which perfectly accentuate the subtle floral and citrus oils. The overall effect is rich and sophisticated, which is exactly what you would expect from a scent named after this gorgeous precious metal.

Christmas is just around the corner

It's guaranteed to be a big hit, especially as all the gold products in our new range come with festive-inspired packaging that is sure to put a smile on anyone's face when they find them under the tree this Christmas.


The second of our new fragrances is the perfect warming option that will have you melting away on an Oriental breeze. Frankincense offers a beautiful woody scent that is incredibly inviting, helping to banish the cold weather from your home this winter.

Smoky layers of frankincense, oud, musk and vanilla create a deep and slightly sweet background for this scent that is instantly recognisable whether you've lit your candle or not. To lift the fragrance slightly, we've added rose and jasmine, which add a slightly floral edge to the mix. 

The finishing element is cistus oil, which has a honey-like scent and introduces just the right amount of sweetness. This chic and complex fragrance is the perfect option if you enjoy deep scents and are a fan of our Sandalwood and Oud products.


Finishing off the three new scents is Myrrh, ensuring the trio is perfectly festive. This sharp citrusy fragrance is sure to lift your mood on wet and cold days, with a layer of Eastern spices giving it a bit of a kick.

We've combined notes of fresh bergamot, jasmine, geranium, rose, oud and myrrh to create a rich citrus accord that has soft and subtle floral tones, as well as hint of sweetness. These lighter elements are perfectly complemented by base notes of patchouli, musk and amber to introduce a slightly smoky element and ensure that Myrrh is unmistakeable.

While the overall scent is citrus sharp, the other elements ensure that it has real staying power, making it a wonderful choice for the all-round fragrance provided by reed diffusers or for adding a burst of fragrance with a candle.
