The best thing about all the Christmas collections is the amount of the amazing candle sets that are available for a good price. This year I am loving the sets from Jo Malone, Malin+Goetz and Diptyque.

Wood Sage and Sea Slat is the only cologne that I still don’t have, Peony and Blush Suede I’ve got for my Mum, and other three
I absolutely love the promo photos of the Jo Malone’s Just Like Sunday Home Candles Collection.
There are four different fragrances and they all should fit a Sunday really well, I like the idea of all four, especially the sound of Incense & Embers and Lavender & Lovage.
