NEOM Luxury Organics Scents of Christmas - A Christmas Gift Idea!

I know I'm not alone in enjoying pretty flickering candlelight of an evening in the depths of winter and it's no secret that NEOM Luxury Organics do candles very, very well. Their beautiful scents really envelop the home into what feels like a warm, incredibly welcoming hug. It's getting to that time of the year where I'm on the lookout for special gifts I think my nearest and dearest would like to open on Christmas morning and something NEOM will be waiting under the tree for more than one of my loved ones this year because it seems they also do Christmas gifts very, very well!
NEOM Luxury Organics Scents of Christmas* (£42)
Nestled inside the beautifully designed Scents of Christmas sturdy white box are three travel candles that promise to fill your home with those magical scents instantly associated with Christmas. Each of the candles has one wick and they're made with vegetable wax and essential oils which ensures they will burn very evenly and cleanly for up to 20 hours in total. The use of essential oils means they also work as aromatherapeutic treatments, so be sure to light one, sit back and relax - it's the perfect opportunity to curl up with a good book and forget the rest of the world for a few hours!

NEOM say the travel candles are perfect for smaller rooms, but in my experience the scent still easily manages to flood the entire downstairs of my cottage almost as well as the larger 3-wick candles, which I think it quite impressive. Sometimes the best things really do come in small packages, or in this case, beautiful glass jars...

Christmas Wish is their signature Christmas scent and I think it's my favourite of the three, although it's a pretty close call! It's very spicy, warming and instantly reminds me of a just-out-of-the-oven Christmas cake with cinnamon and ginger, I think it would be so lovely to burn this on Christmas morning because it's so festive. This scent reminds me of baking and decorating gingerbread with my mama during the Christmas holidays, which was always one of my most favourite times of the year.

Comforting is a deeper scent, more woody and reminiscent of sitting in front of a crackling log fire. When I smell this I'm instantly transported back to my childhood, sitting in my pyjamas on Christmas Eve looking forward to what Father Christmas would bring that night and excitedly setting out a plate of cookies, a small glass of brandy and some carrots for the reindeer.

Harmonise is a very fresh scent with notes of pine and eucalyptus that instantly reminds me of choosing a Christmas tree to decorate when I was very small. We don't have real trees any more because we have a pup that would spend more time trying to eat it than I have in the day to try and stop him from eating it so I'll be lighting this to try and replicate the beautiful scent that we miss out on with an artificial tree.

Together they make the most perfect Christmas trio that I think would make the most beautiful gift for someone who loves candles. I would be thrilled to open this on Christmas morning, it's a little touch of luxury that makes a big impact.

Have you tried anything from NEOM before?
Is this something you would like to receive as a gift?
