Ahhhhh, winter. The freezing weather, excessive layers, and snow up to my knees, all easily convince me to snuggle up in my cozy bed and binge-watch just *one more* Netflix series. If I’m spending a ton of time indoors, my room is def gonna be a snuggly oasis. And what screams cozy more than a soothing blend of warm winter aromas?
Not that you asked, but I am a certified candle addict. Unfortunately, for your girl, that means I dish out a lot of $$$ on them (yes, I constantly remind myself that I don’t need a hundred candles in the same scent). But, luckily for y'all, that also means I’m your go-to-girl on the topic.
If you like baking, cuddles, or sippin’ on cider during those cold and brutal months, you best believe I found the candle that suits your needs. Whether you are a scent hoarder or buy ’em only occasionally, these 13 winter candles are a perfect addition to any room.
Citrus, bergamot, jasmine, rose, sandalwood, tonka bean, amber, and vanilla make up this sexy, well-balanced scent. Also, how cute would this look next to your stocking? Aww.2THIS PRALINE ONEManor House Weekend, Cardamom MilkOtherland
