Everyone loves candles! Whether you use them for decoration, to scent your home or to create a cosy or relaxing atmosphere, everyone enjoys that feeling you get when you take your new candle of out the box and find a place for it in your home. So, we are going to run through some of our favourites that might be perfect for a Mother’s Day gift or if you are just treating yourself!

Our first recommendation would be one from the Woodwick Collection, these candles come in a variety of sizes and scents, but we love them at fragrance Direct because they crackle when burnt. If you are buying for your mum, then there are some lovely scents such as Sea Salt Magnolia in the Artisan hourglass or Pomegranate in the clear with wooden lid, that would make a great present.

The next candle we love is the Plum & Ashby Honey and Amber scented candle. This candle has notes of zesty citrus and sweet vanilla, inspired by glorious afternoons in the British country side. Designed to give to ultimate relaxation in its simplistic and sophisticated packaging, this would be a create addition to anyone’s home.

One which would make a wonderful gift is the Ted Baker Fig and Olive Candle, our favourite scent of the collection. Warm and fresh in an elegant deep grey this floral scent would be perfect for anyone with style. Each candle is carefully crafted and housed in a weighted glass vessel and inspired by the exotic fragrances from Ted’s travels.

If you are wanting a traditional styled candle, one that would look nice on a coffee or dressing table the Heart and Home ones come in a sweet frosted jar with lid. Due to the time of year we would recommend the White Jasmine and Freesia scent as it is light and fresh for spring.

Lastly if you have a smaller budget, a brand we all know, and love Baylis and Harding do a good range of candles in a sleek and sophisticated glass bottle. At Fragrance Direct we love the Mandarin, Grapefruit and Lemon scent for its fresh yet subtle fusion.

If you prefer a diffuser then have a look at our huge range. One which we really love is the Orla Kiely Geranium Home is a fresh scent packaged in her signature, cheerful print this would be a wonderful feature in your home for spring or a thoughtful present.
