I’m in candle heaven right now, as I’m currently working on two seasonal, candle features so I’m fully embracing the candle fragrance vibe, and it’s wonderful! I’ll be completely honest, when I first started putting the feature together, the Air Wick brand didn’t even register on my radar as it just isn’t something I ever think of when considering fragrance, but count me changed as I am so impressed with the Mulled Wine by the Fire collection that I’m already putting together a little list of other things I need to add to my collection.
The Air Wick Mulled Wine by the Fire collection is a brilliantly executed selection of home fragrance goodies that go the extra mile and are extremely well priced. I have three of them to show you, starting with the Reed Diffuser, which is a pretty, delicate, glass container holding fragrance and little glass beads alongside the included reeds. How lovely does this look? It’s less than £8 too!
The Freshmatic Spray Starter Set is something that I keep seeing advertised but haven’t had a chance to try yet, with the idea being that it provides a series of complimentary scents that keep the fragrance fresh. It’s a great idea and I think it’s especially handy for Christmas, since you want to keep that Christmas scent as vibrant as possible. The starter kit is £10.99.
Finally, on to the seriously impressive Colour Changing Candle, which is just so fab! Not only is the fragrance spot-on – strong, punchy yet not OTT – but I absolutely love the fact that the candle changes colour! I think this is so clever; the packaging is pretty and the colour changing creates a glow that’s kind of like a modern take on a lava lamp. This is an amazing buy for £7.99 and I’m really excited to see that there are more Colour Changing Candles in the range – how have I not got my hands on these before?! I love the fact that all these elements combine to keep fragrance fresh in your home; I’d start off with the Reed Diffuser about a week before Christmas, add the Freshmatic a day or two before, and finish with the candle on the day, with all three coming in at £27 (less than the price of an average luxury candle) this is a truly great and affordable way to do Christmas fragrance. The full range is available at most supermarkets such as Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsburys.
