I love the holidays! I am already counting down the days until I am homebound to watch the Wizard of Oz, indulging in one-too-many glasses of Cocoquito as we decorate our family tree.

To the point, I am getting a bit restless, and if you too are right there with me, Village Candle is here to help us all out.

From Christmas Tree to Snoconut, every candle is as perfect as the last. And, if we're dealing with any Grinches out there, these freshly fragrant candles are so sensational that they'll light up anyone's (and everyone's) holiday season (even if you don't think it's possible!). 

Oh, and how do I know these candles are that life-changing?

It's simple: I tested all five candles out first-hand. Whether you're partial to the Christmas Spice (my personal favorite) or hoping to unwind with a little Peace of Mind (pun intended!), every single offering will also be the utmost special holiday gift.

Village Candle Christmas Tree Large Glass Apothecary Jar Scented Candle for $22.22, at Amazon 

Together, this modern and classic candle takes on the familiar magic of our most iconic and cherished Christmas scent: the Christmas tree. Full notes of juniper berry, balsam fir, and cedar inspired a cascade of future (and past) memories while bringing them, to light.  

What this candle smells like

Missing your family trip to the Christmas Tree farm? Go ahead and light this pine-inspired fragrance up. It offers the cedar/musk scent without any of the damage from pine cones and needles. 

2. Village Candle, Here Comes Santa

Here Comes Santa3.25 oz Jar for $6.95, at Amazon

Transport back to the Night before Christmas by lighting this jolly candle to provide enough light for Santa's sleigh. 

What this candle smells like

To put it bluntly: this candle sleighs. Reminiscent of hot-from-the-oven-spiced cookies (my favorite!), cedar planks, and cypress garlands, this ravishing-red candle offers all of my favorite Christmas scents rolled up in one. 

3. Village Candle, Snoconut

Village Candle Snoconut, Large Glass Apothecary Jar Scented Candle for $19.95, at Amazon

Immerse your surroundings in a hint of playfulness and confectionary fun with this fluffy white candle. 

What this candle smells like

For someone who hates coconut, I was beyond surprised by how much I enjoyed this Snoconut candle. It wasn't strong or overpowering, and the tuberose is perfection when paired with both cinnamon and coconut milk; it was the warming white option I continuously find myself wrapping up too. 

4. Village Candle, Peace on Earth

Village Candle Peace On Earth, Large Glass Apothecary Jar Scented Candle for $19.95, at Amazon

Picture this: You and your favorite fuzzy blanket, wrapped up by the fire as you sip hot chocolate and watch the snow start to fall outside, all while lighting this crisp-pine scent. 

What this candle smells like

Whether you're home by the fire or looking to burn the midnight oil, this pine-laden scent was a go-to in my book. It was the perfect escapism for me; traveling to a wintery abode where the fireside glows and the pine softened by notes of sea salt and birch woods (or at least, in my mind, I was). The moral of the story: this perfect piece, provided peace of mind. 

5. Village Candle, Christmas Spice

Christmas Spice Candle for $11, at Walmart 

Spark up the holiday spirit with this scarlet-red, spice-inspired candle, that is warm and inviting. 

What this candle smells like

My favorite candle scent is pumpkin spice, and I burn it year-round, so you can imagine my surprise when I found myself reaching for the lighter with this candle day-in-and-day-out. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove continuously filled every room in my apartment. To the point, I'm confident this candle will be a new staple from here on out.
