Each holiday season I look forward to festive scented candles from Nest New York, Diptyque, Jo Malone, and yes, even Bath & Body Works. (Cheap and cheerful for the win, am I right?)
I love gifting candles and I love receiving them as gifts. When you're this obsessed with bougie candles, it's the sort of gift that never gets old.
In this post, you'll find some exquisite holiday home fragrances that will wow the candle enthusiast in your life.
And just in case you want to gift a non-holiday scent, I've also included some stunning scents from Tom Ford, YSL, Jo Malone, and Maison Margiela REPLICA that can be enjoyed all year round.
Happy gift-giving! Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
