Glossy Gift Guide: Three of the Best Candles

Three SUPERIOR QUALITY candles, with intriguing and LONG-LASTING SCENTS


Everyone has a tricky person to buy for, and an elegant candle solves any gifting dilemma, at every price point. These three are superior quality, with intriguing and long-lasting scents that scent the room without being overpowering. Also consider Margiela Replica candles (Jazz Club is fun and fabulous for parties).

1. Brooke & Shoals Sweet Basil, Bay & Neroli. A fresh bright fragrance presented in pure white to suit everyone’s interior from this Greystones-based company. €22 at stockists nationwide;

2. Another Irish candle brand, Field Day is doing a good-value winter candle this year. The scent is what you’d expect for winter – think cinammon, clove, orange and vanilla – but delivered in a pretty box and with a high fragrance content compared to most candles at this price point. From €17.95 (limited edition) at

3. Frederic Malle candles are beautifully packaged in a black box and signature orange glass holder that’s wonderfully recyclable – they make a great holder for make-up brushes once finished. Our pick for winter is Notre Dame, a warm woody blend of dusty relics, wood and incense – it’s so atmospheric and alluring. Classy, long-lasting and with a wow factor that makes it worth the investment. €65 at
