We have eight limited edition Pinetum Luxury Scented Three Wick Candles to give away, each worth £65

Schhhhh, don't tell – we know it isn’t Christmas quite yet but we’re sitting here happily with Charles Farris VII Pinetum candle burning on our desks, the flames from three wicks flickering slightly, and the aromatic fragrance of sweet green pine needles and balsam on a warm base of amber, cinnamon and sandalwood permeating the rooms.

We say the same every year – we just LOVE Christmas. And we love all the rituals. So opening the midnight blue Charles Farris box, lifting out the satisfyingly heavy, dark glass candleholder and striking a long match to ignite the Pinetum candle is a joy. (Sarah actually started carolling Hark the herald candles burn…) 

Charles Farris Chandlers was founded in London in 1845 around the time that the German-born Prince Albert was introducing his national celebrations – including Christmas trees and cards - to this country. (Turkey actually dates back to the 16th century. Not many people know that…)

Now a Royal Warrant holder, the historic company still uses the same traditional methods from Victorian days at its factory in Wiltshire to create today’s superlative scented candles, which offer 80 hours of slow-burning fragrance.

So that you too can herald Christmas customs from mince pies and mulled wine to real fires and the soft glow of candlelight, we are delighted that this wonderful British brand is offering Beauty Bible readers the chance to win a Pinetum Luxury Scented Three Wick Candle, worth £65.

Just one more thing: the candles do make wonderful gifts so do visit Charles Farris website if you’re doing your Present List, charlesfarris.com.  We always love the Brass Angel Chimes with four tiny candles (red in Sarah’s childhood) sending the angels flying around, creating a gentle peel of chimes. Simply enchanting.

Prize draw closes at 7 a.m. on Wednesday 5th December 2018
