Nothing gets us in that cosy festive spirit quite like a mulled wine but if there was a close second, winter candles would be it. So cancel all plans to leave the house, slip into your new Christmas print PJs (we know you've got a pair folded and waiting) and light one of these delights, because staying in is the new going out don't cha know. Here's a definitive ranking of the best winter candles...

Let us just begin by saying that nothing - NOTHING - comes between a girl and her quest to find the perfect Christmas candle. I mean, what even is Christmas without Yankee and Jo Malone tbh? And with December just around the corner, it means the countdown is well and truly on - the spicier the better #priorities. It's out with the fresh fragrances of summer and in with those opulent cinnamon babes. Who knows, if we nail our favourite wintry wick early on, we might even extend the search on behalf of, ya know, Christmas presents for other people. 'Tis the season to give after all blah blah blah.

From Jo Malone and Diptyque to Yankee and Acqua di Parma, here's our definitive ranking of the best winter candles old and new! Sniff away...
