Not sure about you, but over here Christmas starts as soon as November hits; London’s Christmas lights get turned on by last year’s lackluster X Factor ‘winner’, the supermarkets stack hard-to-resist boxes of all-butter mince pies and, of course, let’s not forget the smell of pine, wood fires and mulled wine spices that fill the air. Still not feeling it? We've found the very best in festive candles to get you feeling the Christmas vibes:

Jo Loves Christmas Trees Candle, £80 – When this candle’s in town, there is absolutely no messing with the true spirit of Christmas. It’s an olfactory doppleganger for an actual, real, needle-shedding Christmas tree. Pining (sorry) for one.

Cire Trudon Etoile Natural Wax Candle, £78 – A hug in a golden candle, Cire Trudon’s is a softer seasonal scent and if you don’t like the smell of spices – it has a base of cedar and sandalwood - you’ll love it. 

Diptyque Unicorn: Frosted Forest Christmas Candle, £48 – Diptyque: the currency of every perfectly decorated home and the one brand that pretty much every celebrity swears by. This is one of their Christmas offering, smells like conifer trees and mint, and is emblazoned with a holographic unicorn, which makes it a nice accompaniment to twinkly lights.

Jo Malone Green Almond & Redcurrant Christmas Candle, £120 – If the green and pink stripes don’t sell it for you, the nutty, redcurrant smell surely will and, let's face it, Christmas isn’t Christmas without a little Jo Malone somewhere in the vicinity.

Neom Perfect Peace Scented 3 Wick Candle, £45 – With not just one but three whole wicks - 50 hours of burn time - Neom’s essential oil-packed candle contains notes of myrrh (holla, wise men) and lime peel for a citrusy twist. Festive but not too in-your-face.

Space NK Apothecary Shimmering Spice Candle, from £16 - Just because it's a purse-friendly option, doesn't mean that it isn't a serious contender. Space NK's candle is a traditional Christmas scent, with a strong heady side of orange mandarin that could rival any of the bigger hitters. Would make the perfect Secret Santa gift.
