Four Fine Holiday Candles

This winter season, BWB invites you to stay under the covers and indulge in the cozy fragrance of our favorite holiday candles.

Nest Fragrances’ Spiced Orange & Clove Votive Candle brings you a citrusy Christmas. Think: Snuggled up under a fluffy blanket sipping warm spiced cider by the fireplace. With a subtly sweet, nostalgic scent, this fragrant decoration is perfect for almost any time of year.

Brighten up your home with its delicate freshness from the orange pomander, while its Saigon cinnamon, star anise and gingered honey blended with spiced brandy envelop you in sumptuous warmth. The only way to describe this scent is like one, big, olfactory hug!

Tiziana Terenzi’s Cassiopeia Candle will welcome you to the beautiful countryside of Marche, Italy. With its gentle fragrance, smell the roses that grow on stone towers of abandoned castles, the sandalwood that leads you through enchanted forests at dusk. As Paolo Terenzi puts it, this is “a timeless fragrance that never fails to speak of love and gratitude.” Inspired by a place rich in history and wonder, this creamy candle will infect the room with blushed smiles and a brighter atmosphere.

Sisley Paris’s Campagne Candle is unlike any candle you’ve smelled before. While close to the nose its strong scent might be overpowering, this Sisley candle has all the magic necessary to transform a room into a haven of relaxation.

Closing your eyes, you may even feel its combination of bergamot, lemon, and basil actually bring the countryside into the home. Its intense black paraffin wax is swaddled in a forest green lacquered glass, the perfect holiday decoration that complements its refined spa-like quality.

Parfum de Gascogne by Amanda de Montal takes inspiration from her home of Gascony, France, a place of raw beauty with unforgettable smells and generous color. Fortitudo Lignorum combines many childhood memories, from the oak barrels that stored de Montal’s father’s wine, the amazing smell of his tobacco, the rich aroma of his Armagnac.

The strength of this product lies in its ability to draw on both fragrant, raw materials and cherished life experiences. This candle will cloak you in centuries of love and culture.
