COM­ING IN from the cool (yes, Dubai’s tem­per­a­ture drops too) and light­ing your favourite wick is prac­ti­cally medic­i­nal in the win­ter months. Which ex­plains why Net-aPorter no­tices a sea­sonal 180 per cent spike of scented can­dle sales dur­ing De­cem­ber. “Can­dles are part of our ar­mour against win­ter,” ex­plains Tom Daxon, Founder and Cre­ative Di­rec­tor of his epony­mous fra­grance brand. “The trick to mak­ing them last is to burn them for two hours on the first light­ing.” This way, the wax will melt into a pool all the way to the edge, en­cour­ag­ing an even burn. “Also, be­fore each burn, trim the wick to about 5mm to stop the flame from be­ing too strong, pre­vent­ing that black smoke.” To help you choose your per­fect match, we’ve col­lated the most mor­eish Christ­mas can­dles, from warm­ing spicy scents to so­phis­ti­cated foral blends. En­joy.
