Best Xmas Candle Scents

Are you looking for the best Xmas candle? Do you find yourself scrolling though pages and pages of Christmas scented candles, not quite sure which holiday scent would be perfect for your home?

While it's no easy task to pick the very best Christmas candles among the selection of scents we offer, we've managed to round up 3 of our (and our customers') favorite candles for Christmas.

From pine candles to a scrumptious holiday coffee scent, here are our three top candle scents for Christmas 2024:

Best candle that smells like a Christmas Tree

#1 Merry & Bright 

Merry & Bright Soy Candle | Signature Jar


This festive pine candle is more than just another pine tree scented candle. Really, it's a fresh-cut Christmas tree bottled up just for you.

This enchanting tree scent is bursting with fresh notes of spruce, pine, spearmint, and cypress.

Warm notes of sandalwood and cedar wood keep the scent grounded while bright citrus notes keep it from being too heavy.

If you're looking for a blue spruce scent or fir scented candles in general, this may be the holiday scent for you!

Xmas eve

Choose our signature jar candle for a burn time of 50+ hours to enjoy this holiday season, or opt for our double-wicked apothecary candle - this large fir tree candle will last 80+ hours and have an extra-strong fragrance for large rooms.

Place near your fireplace or Christmas tree (fake or real!) for the perfect holiday ambience for your next family get-together.

Best candle that smells like a Fireplace

#2 Christmas Hearth

christmas hearth candleWhen I think of Christmas, I definitely think of time spent in from to the fireplace with family, sipping on hot apple cider. That holiday fireplace scent is captured perfectly with our Christmas Hearth candle, a delightful scent that will make your home smell like Christmas.

Make your home smell like Christmas Eve all season long with this cozy blend of orange spice, ginger, cinnamon, fir, and pine.

A woodsy base of vetiver and balsam add a touch of elegance to this holiday scented candle.

Give this cozy candle a try - if you're looking for Christmas in a candle, it won't disappoint!

As with all of our candles, Christmas Hearth is hand-poured and generously scented with body-safe fragrance oils infused with essential oils.

We know how a candle burns is just as important as how good it smells, so we make sure to use nothing but the best scents and only phthalate-free oils.

Best Candle that smells like Coffee

#3 Peppermint Mocha Hot Chocolate Soy Candle


Given that I'm a coffee fanatic, I make a lot of candles that smell like coffee. And not just regular coffee candles, but specialty coffee drink candles as well!

Whether you're looking for a vanilla latte candle or a hazelnut coffee scented candle instead, we've got a variety for you.

For this best Christmas candles list specifically, I want to highlight our delicious Peppermint Mocha coffee candle. Not only does this peppermint candle smell delicious, but it's poured in an adorable holiday coffee mug so that it not only smells great, but it looks amazing on your holiday tablescape too!

 Many of our handcrafted latte candles - including our Peppermint Mocha candle - are poured in repurposed coffee mugs - choose your favorite coffee mug and get ready to wake up every morning to a special holiday treat...without having to visit Starbucks first!


Our available mug designs are always changing, so if you don't see a design you like, please contact us at and we'll let you know exactly what coffee mugs we have for you.


Hint: We also highly recommend our coffee candles for the perfect Christmas gift for coffee lovers, teachers appreciation gifts, and gifts for hard to shop for recipients.

It's a totally unique candle that they've not seen before, and you can always pair it with a Starbucks gift card for a completely adorable and thoughtful Christmas gift.
