Amidst all the focus on Christmas food and decor it can be easy to overlook the power of scent in setting a festive tone. We’ve done the work and rounded up our favourite Christmas scents based on good looks and fabulous smells.
Ecoya Christmas: Strawberry Spritz Madison Candle: Created by Australian candle Ecoya, this limited edition scent has a very summery feel. It combines spritzy pink grapefruit, pineapple, strawberry, passionfruit, guava and malt. $46.95.
Diptyque limited edition Neige candle: Inspired by snow, this candle’s stylish midnight blue wax is scented with white musk and heliotrope. Its glass vessel is adorned with white, gold and silver stars that glow in the dark. A golden metal lid protects the wax. $66.
Arty Bub Christmas tree candle: Available in green, red and white, we love this candle’s elegant shape. Decidedly Aussie, these candles are scented with an Australian Christmas bush scent. $34.99 each.

Trudon Felice Christmas 2022 Classic Candle: While this candle smells gorgeous (think citrus, Christmas spice and fruity notes), it’s the gorgeous vessel that caught our eye. The pretty glass jar is emblazoned with a shining star, champagne bottle, sparkling ring and musical notes too. $159.
