Nothing encapsulates the excitement of the run up to Christmas quite like an advent calendar. Whether we have a classic chocolate calendar or a more fancy and grown-up affair, opening the first door of the best advent calendar and counting down the days takes us back to those feelings of anticipation we felt as children.

Yankee Candle has now launched its range of three Christmas advent calendars for a great-smelling advent, and they are gorgeous. We're loving the sophisticated dark blue design - important when they're going to be in our homes for a whole month. 

And, as it's Yankee, we know the candles will smell divine.

Scent is so important in making your home feel inviting and fresh. Yet it's something people often overlook. Whenever you have guests over to your house, they will always take in the scent of your home, consciously or subconsciously.

A festive candle burning is a fab hallway idea to give your home a distinct scent through the Christmas period. You could even use scent to zone spaces if you have an open-plan living area. 

Here's to a merry and bright December, with our favorite candles lit at all times.
