Let this Christmas scent take you on a journey - from dawn to dusk, this fruity and festive aroma is a stacking of nostalgic memories. Blackcurrent & lemon peel boldly introduce this scent with a punch; while cyclamen & fir needle gives way to a more earthy twist. Nutmeg & plum dance to create fruity complexity that feels unique... but familiar. Burnt with a crackling wooden wick, this candle will create a cosy festive ambiance without the need for a fireplace. 

•Safe fragrances: free from phthalate
•100% soy wax: free from paraffin, GMO and unnatural additives
•Clean burning: sustainably-sourced wooden wicks
•Hand-crafted with love and care from Wairarapa, NZ

When it comes to packaging, we know that this is a cost to Earth - but we also know that our customers who browse in stores really love reading about what makes us so special. For some, knowing about our charitable contributions, our eco-friendly stance, our premium ingredients and our carbon offset is the make (over the break) in their decision making. So for this reason, we offer both packaging & non-packaging options. For those giving candles as gifts, this is great. For those who chuck the box straight in the bin, this is also great. Not only does it save Earth’s precious resources, it saves you money - win, win!

We previously estimated the burn time based on “up to X hours.” We have changed to now using an approx estimation; as this allows more room for varying factors, such as fluctuation in room temperatures, extended burn sessions (over the recommended 4 hours) and more flammable fragrances (candle science stuff!). While we are very confident that our candles can perform up to our previously advised estimates in ideal circumstances, we understand that due to varying factors, they may burn through a little quicker.

Fell in love with name

Nola is my youngest granddaughter, so just had to buy the candles and everything else they had in the shop. Diffuser, room spray etc. my daughters room spray is incredible, lasts for such a long time, the candles smell divine. So happy with them. Will definitely be buying more.

Best Christmas scent

I dont usually like the usual christmas scents as they are often too overpowering and leave me with a headache. This scent although strong, does not overwhelm and creates a fresh fragrance in the house. Reminds me of the Christmas lily and christmas cooking. I’m in love with it!!
