Christmas scents can evoke wonderful holiday memories. The earthy, rich aroma of pine and cedar, the spicy smells of cinnamon, ginger, clove and sweet scents like peppermint and chocolate smell just like Christmas! 

During the holidays, candles can do double duty, both as pretty decor and to make your home smell great. As decor, you can add visual elegance by choosing from rustic clay vessels and elegant glass containers, some even with decorative lids. With so many options, we came up with a simple guide to our favorite candles for the holiday season.
