Christmas is almost upon us, and with it a concentrated shot of festive cheer set to be fired directly into our bloodstreams. But for all those times when the season’s hectic nature gets just a bit too much, it can be both healthy and mindful to look elsewhere for a little solace. Because while December may have well and truly warmed your cockles, deriving a little heat and light from a Christmas candle can ease away the kinds of stresses sure to arise from gift shopping, distant relatives and getting the damned turkey just right.

L:A BRUKET Large Tabac Scented Candle

L:A BRUKET Large Tabac Scented Candle

Tabac might conjure images of smoke-filled pubs for some, but in reality the distinctive dry aroma is barely recognisable when blended as part of a finely-balanced fragrance. The scent’s earthen accents are set against the lightness of lemon, the floral touch of lavender and the soothing tones of the soy wax itself.
