While our counterparts in the northern hemisphere are sitting by an open fire, sipping coco and dealing with ice cold weather, those of us in Australia are desperately trying to keep cool. While many Christmas inspired candles feature a blend of warm spices and fruit, Glasshouse Fragrance has turned this on its head and created a festive candle suited to the Australian Christmas climate.
Introducing Glasshouse Fragrances Christmas Cheer 2016. Whether you’re celebrating in the country or on the coast, add a touch of zesty sweetness to your Christmas Day. The Christmas Cheer Candle features notes of:
Top: Bergamot, Lemon Myrtle, Freesia
Middle: Passionfruit, Pomegranate, Vanilla Crème
Base: Light Musk, Vanilla, Tonka Bean
This scent is refreshing and sweet and reminds me a little of a pavlova – this is mainly because of the passionfruit. The inclusion of Australian Lemon Myrtle and bergamot also add another layer of crispness. This full bodied fragrance easily fills medium and larger rooms without being overpowering. The Christmas Cheer candle is housed in a hand finished jar with a gold tint which oozes luxury. This decadent Christmas candle is the perfect gift for anyone you’re visiting ahead of Christmas Day. A great gift idea for a friend, aunt, grandmother and also makes a great Kris Kringle gift idea.
Each year I look forward to Glasshouse Fragrances festive themed candles and Christmas Cheer 2016 was well worth the wait. If this pleasant scent isn’t for you, be sure to check out my other favourite ‘The Night Before Christmas’ which features a delicious blend of spices and fruit reminiscent of a warm Christmas pudding.
