Nothing creates a Christmas atmosphere more than candles. They are all about that special light that only candles give out or that special smell that takes you back to childhood. A winter’s night, with the curtains drawn, the log fire is roaring in the hearth and the whole room is lit by candlelight. Perhaps a scented candle is perfuming the house just as the guests arrive for the festive meal. Some of our candles are made in North Cornwall at the St Eval Candle Company where their candles and fragrances are inspired by nature. They aim to be plastic-free by 2022. Other candles are made in Germany. They are through-coloured which is always a sign of quality, as cheap candles are the only surface coloured. New for this year are a range of pet candles and electric reed diffusers.
