Here’s what the team thought!

Katy said:

“We’re all in agreement that the Sparkling Cinnamon is the one we THOUGHT we’d love most from the advent calendar, but actually there’s a few surprises in there! For me personally, I always associate Christmas with the scent of a spruce Christmas Tree – kind of like what you’d expect a Christmas Tree farm to smell like! The new Icy Blue Spruce instantly reminded me of the excitement of putting up the Christmas Tree. I’m definitely off to get a full size one!”

Mandy said:

“Sparkling Cinnamon is just my all time favourite kind of scent. I love a bit of cinnamon at Christmas time, it reminds me of walking through a Christmas market with a lovely Mulled wine which is one of my all time favourite things to do at Christmas. I actually liked Winter Glow (which kind of smells like a snowy day..) as a close second but for me, the winner is definitely Sparkling Cinnamon”

Elaine said:

“A lot like the other girls, I love the Sparkling Cinnamon, it’s a traditional Christmassy scent, but for me the winner is crackling wood fire. I love how ‘warm’ this makes me feel. It reminds me of cold frosty days, with a big dressing gown on and a Christmas film on the TV while the stove is burning away. Such a lovely scent that I can’t get enough of!”
