There’s no better comfort on cold winter nights than the flickering light of a cozy candle. Whether it’s the warm glow, or the candle’s ability to conjure up memories of happy holidays gone by, we’re not sure. One thing is certain, however—we dig seasonal scents so much that we’ll happily forego holiday décor in favor of a few festive candles. And since we’re so crazy about them, this year, we thought we’d share our favorites with you. Here are five scents that have brightened our lives and our living rooms this December.
