This collection is inspired by festive, seasonal scents, evoking the joy and nostalgia of a traditional Irish Christmas.
Made in Dublin by Dalkey Aromatics, each candle is hand-poured in 100% natural biodegradable soy wax with a pure cotton wick, essential oils, and premium fragrances. These candles make a super gift, especially if sending to a loved one overseas. Packaged in a tin, each candle has the description of the aroma printed on the wraparound:
Irish Christmas Eve - 'The magic of Christmas Eve, with work finished and an anticipation of what's to come. Greeting old friends and eating mince pies after midnight mass (which was held at 9 o'clock) Savour our inviting blend of sweet apple intertwined with the warm spice of ginger.'
Irish Christmas Morning - 'The air tingles with anticipation as presents beckon under the tree. Branches are draped in cherished decorations, each with their own history. The scent of cinnamon-dusted pastries and seemingly never-ending trays of Christmas mandarins to eat. Happy Faces and food being prepared by many hands.'
Irish Christmas Cake - 'My mother used to make our Christmas cake months in advance of the big day. She would then put it away in a dark press and every few weeks she'd pour whiskey over the top to preserve the cake and enhance the flavour. In the week before Christmas, a thick layer of marzipan and white icing would be added. Any visitor to the house over the holidays would have a big slice and a hot cup of tae!'
