Christmas Beauty Countdown: Heyland & Whittle Prosecco candle

IMG_8333 IMG_8335

There’s nothing that says Christmas better than a scented candle: cloves, gingerbread, berries and pine – all conjur up the fragrances that bring into focus special time of year and call into mind the highlight of our winter calendar.

Hyland & Whittle, however, have gone one step further with its very festive Clementine and Prosecco Candle in a Glass, £22.


It has taken the aroma of a glass of crisp prosecco – the perfect festive tipple – as its starting point. Light the wax and notes of clementine, sparkling wine, yellow apple and pear seem to pop in the air. Over time this mellows to the fruity middle notes of apricot, peach, plum and finally the base note of sugary accords. It is a sweet fragrance with a sharp twist that is perfectly uplifting on a cold, winter’s evening – filling the home with the olfactory version of a glass of prosecco with none of the effects of the morning after. Now who can want for more?
