Churchgate Winter Red Berries Multi Wick Candle | £10 (opens in new tab)

Honestly, without any fragrance we'd be sold on this candle because just look at how rich the colour is and how gorgeous the candle looks on a mantelpiece. It looks super expensive and then the aroma it gives off is deeeelicious. A warming winter candle that acts as a beautiful piece of home decor.
