Twig + Dot Christmas Candles
As we all know, I love candles! They make a room so incredibly cosy, homely and inviting, particularly at this time of the year when it is getting chilly and it starts to become dark very early. I've tried quite a few candle brands so I was excited to try a couple of candles from a brand I have wanted to try for a while - Twig + Dot. Twig and Dot have launched their christmas range and all of the candle scents sound so gorgeous. I was very kindly sent two, including one of their larger 230g candles and the small 45g voltive candle as I am lucky enough to be part of their 12 bloggers of christmas countdown! 

*Twig + Dot Merry Kissmas Votive Jar Candle (£3):


Cranberry, Pomegranate & Mistletoe. Welcome the season with a merry blend of sweet cranberry, pomegranate & mistletoe. Tart & Inviting. Perfect for those looking for a fruity seasonal scent. 

In my experience, small or votive candles usually come in plastic wrapping as Yankee Candle samplers do or cheap plastic containers but this jar is glass and it just feels so much more expensive even though it isn't. The packaging is gorgeous, although as a blogger it is a nightmare to photograph - I had to re-take the photos more than I have for any other items so it doesn't photograph well or at least in my case it doesn't (#BloggerProblems). The candle burns evenly and to the sides as it is a small candle so there is no waste. To me it smells very fruity and woody but in a crisp, winter walk kind of way, if that makes sense! However, the scent is quite subtle which is a shame as the scent is so festive and lovely. Overall rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5.


*Twig + Dot Santa Baby Large Candle (£16):

Black Cherry, Frankincense & Patchouli. Black cherry combines with frankincense, myrrh, cedar & patchouli to create our sexiest seasonal scent yet. Warm & Woody. 

Patchouli and woody notes are some of my favourites so I was excited to receive this candle, although there are so many others that I would love such as the Pumpkin Pie, Sugar and Spice and Cinder and Smoke. The large candles burn for approximately 30 to 40 hours, while the votive candles burn time for approximately 5 to 8 hours. The scent in the jar reminds me of cherry menthol sweets with crisp, snowy woody notes; it's a gorgeous and refreshing combination and one that I wouldn't have chosen for myself as I do prefer more baking and warm scents. The candle scent is very pleasant and festive, it's fruity and musky but fresh and minty too. It burns well and evenly which is fantastic and I think it will last for ages! Overall rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5.

Overall, I am definitely impressed with the candles, I love both scent even though they aren't really want I would have chosen but it is a nice change. The packaging is cute and I love the glass jar for the votive candle although they were a bit frustrating to photograph but this isn't really a problem unless your a blogger! I'm definitely interested in trying more from the brand!

Have you tried any candles from Twig + Dot? What are your favourite festive candle scents?
