Now that Christmas is getting closer, we may find ourselves wanting to be reminded of the upcoming festivities. Christmas lights and decorations are up and holiday planning is in full swing. Since Christmas is a holiday that brings comfort and nostalgia to most of us, why not take it a step further and make your home smell like the holiday?
Of course, the smell of Christmas is different for everybody. But you’re in luck because these locally-made scented candle brands have different Christmas scents for you to choose from.
Saan Saan’s holiday collection will remind you of sweet treats and Christmas mornings. Christmas Cafe has the aroma of sweet holiday goodies; Pumpkin & Juniper combines the cold breeze of the mountains and a pot of pumpkin-spiced treat wafting around you; and Simbang Gabi has the smell of distinctly Filipino holiday goodies like puto bumbong and bibingka, and coffee and hot chocolate.
