Top Five

Scented Candles

Yes, this post really is an (ahem) candle round-up. Perfumers are now so secure in your masculinity, they think they can sell you the ultimate girly air freshener. The scary part? They might be right. 

1.| A Japanese-spiced, woody offering from the Stockholm-based brand founded by fragrance designer Ben Gorham to “materialise the emotion related to my sense of smell”. Ambre Japonais by Byredo Parfums, £40 (byredo.com)

2.| Cire Trudon has made candles for four centuries. Ernesto, with notes of leather and tobacco, is supreme. Ernesto by Cire Trudon, £55 (selfridges.com)

3.| The dense, smoky scent of Diptyque’s candle comes from the essence of rare woods — good if your flat doesn’t have a log fire. Feu de Bois by Diptyque, £55 (liberty.co.uk)

4.| Contained in a square, matt-black glass, Tom Ford’s Oud Wood blends notes of cardamom and pepper. Private Blend Oud Wood by Tom Ford, £50 (selfridges.com)

5.| With notes of plum, rum and leather, this candle’s scent is dark and stormy, without being overpowering. Dark Rum candle by Malin + Goetz, £37 (liberty.co.uk)

6.| With notes of gaïac wood and “chimney”, Dior’s handmade Bois Brûlé candle is deep and smoky and the blokiest of the brand’s new range. Bois Brûlé by Dior, £55 (selfridges.com)
