Crabtree & Evelyn Hollyberry Large Poured Candle
It used to be the practice in years past to place gifts on the tree, as well as under it. This age old tradition has been brought back Crabtree & Evelyn this year, with their seasonal range of vintage inspired Christmas decorations that each contain a little gift!
Whilst the Crabtree & Evelyn Hollyberry Large Poured Candle could be placed on the tree, we wouldn’t advise it, being on the heavy size it wouldn’t stay. The packaging however is in the same style as the Seasonal Spectacular collection and would indeed look amazing in the home this Christmas.
In dark burgundy and deep red the Victorian-esque packaging is extremely festive and gives way to the most alluring candle. Inspired by the fruits of the season, this candle is scented with everything to make your home smell like Christmas, warm and oh so inviting, combining the fragrances of red currant, fig and frankincense notes infused with crimson berries and fresh, green leaves.
Available from Crabtree & Evelyn for £28
