If you haven't noticed, winter is heading our way, and it's bringing with it darker evenings, colder weather and the need for all things knitted. But it isn't all bad, as these cosy evenings do give us more of an excuse to start lighting scented candles in every room of the house.
But rather than the fresh, bright scents you've been burning all summer, winter candles in smoky, woody and spicy scents will create an all-around cosier atmosphere, perfect for nights spent in front of Netflix with a glass of wine in tow.
As self-confessed candle aficionados, we've pulled together our nine favourite winter candles that will take the edge off the gloomier weather. Click through to shop our edit.

"Hygge" might be a bit 2016, but this candle, with its notes of tea, rose petals and wild mint, makes us sleepy just thinking about it.
The juxtaposition of fresh, clean lavender and headier smoke notes makes for an unusual scent in this candle. We love the added amethyst and quartz crystals that promise to emit positive energy as you burn the wick.
