My Friend Said That My House Smells Like a Luxury Hotel When I Burn This Candle

Is there anything better than giving your house a good clean, then lighting your favourite candle and cosying up on the sofa? There's something so relaxing about having a candle burning, especially now that we're in winter. I always tend to opt for warmer, richer scents, as I find that they really fill a room and leave my home smelling amazing for hours. In fact, the other day, my friend popped round for a coffee and as soon as she walked in she asked what candle I was burning, as apparently it made my house smell like a luxurious hotel lobby. She assumed it would be from the likes of Diptyque or Jo Malone, but it was in fact from British brand, The White Company.

As a beauty editor, this brand is always my go-to for chic, expensive-smelling candles. The scent that I'm currently burning 24/7 at home is called Noir, a blend of sensual notes of amber, sandalwood and mandarin. It really does make your house smell so luxurious, and I'll definitely be getting my friend her own Noir candle for Christmas. If you're yet to try a candle from the brand, never fear, as I've taken it upon myself to round up all of my other favourite White Company candles. So, whether you're treating yourself or someone else, keep on scrolling for my edit of the best candles from The White Company that will leave your house smelling seriously good.

1. The White Company Noir Candle

Key Notes: Amber, mandarin and sandalwood.

Yes, this candle smells just as sexy as it looks. The warm, creamy fragrance will make your home smell so luxurious. I love burning this in the winter months.


2. The White Company Winter Candle

Key Notes: Cinnamon, clove and orange.

Speaking of winter, this candle from The White Company is iconic. The candle itself is infused with red berries, orange slices and cinnamon sticks, so not only does it look amazing, but it smells just like a Christmassy winter's day.

3. The White Company Fir Tree Candle

Key Notes: Eucalyptus, pine and cedar.

For those of you who like to go for a fresher scent in the colder months, you can't go wrong with the Fir Tree candle. Woody, earthy notes of pine and cedar smell just as invigorating as a crisp walk outdoors.

4. The White Company Seychelles Candle

Key Notes: Bergamot, amber and vanilla.

When the warmer months roll around, I always make sure to have a Seychelles candle burning. Warm vanilla and amber notes mix perfectly with coconut and orange to transport you to a beach far, far away.

5. The White Company Pomegranate Candle

Key Notes: Pomegranate, mandarin and amber.

I always think pomegranate scents smell so sophisticated, and this candle is no exception. Rich, fruity notes combine with smooth patchouli and amber accords for a truly decadent finish. 

6. The White Company Calm Candle

Key Notes: Juniper berry, clary sage and ylang ylang.

Although I love lots of different candles in my house, when it comes to the bedroom, I tend to stick to more soothing scents. The Calm candle from The White Company is the perfect choice thanks to a combination of natural essential oils.

7. The White Company Fireside Candle

Key Notes: Smoked woods, birch and amber.

This is one of the cosiest scents from The White Company, and it makes me feel like I'm cuddling up by the fire whenever I burn it (even though I don't have a fireplace). The smokey, woody notes are balanced out with amber and vanilla for a slightly sweeter, warmer finish.

8. The White Company Blanc Candle

Key notes: Geranium, juniper and patchouli.

I don't think I've met anyone who doesn't like this scent. It's fresh, it's floral and it's perfect for all year round.
