This year I don’t have a diffuser but the Goutal Paris Une Foret D’Or Candle is more than up to the job of creating a pine infused well being scent around the house. It’s very generous in throw with warming orange notes amongst the resins. It’s very definitely the smell of a Christmas household if you have a traditional Christmas with mince pies, mulled wine and general bonhomie and if you’re like almost every other house at this stressful time where none of those things apply, it will give the impression that you are at your happiest running out of wrapping paper and don’t feel like slapping the next person who asks what’s for dinner round the head with a cracker.
This candle is a masterclass in ambience creation – really, truly beautiful. It’s £65 which is pretty pricy but is sold out in most places other than Jarrold’s HERE. You can get smaller versions for £49 HERE in a deep, green fluted glass. Alternatively a good tip is to slice an orange, put a few drops of pine oil onto a few of the slices and shove in the oven on a low heat. Literally, Lapland in your kitchen.
