Speaking as someone who is most likely more excited for the next couple of months than your eight year old cousin, the divine smells of both the Soy Wax Melts and Natural Soap by Valley Mill have well and truly made my week. There are quite a few 'firsts' that indicate the build-up to the special day, such as when the Christmas adverts start appearing in between programmes. However, I've always found scents to be far more indicative than any other factor when it comes to this time of year and so the strong, undeniably festive fragrance of the Spiced Apple Wax Melts very much waved a green flag for me to the begin the celebrations!
As I sat back and relaxed to enjoy the 1997 Christmas film 'Borrowed Hearts' (heartwarmingly sweet!), I used a small electric burner for the wax melts to avoid having a naked flame flickering away as I delved into the storyline of the film and inevitably forgot entirely about my surroundings. It may only be the 11th November, however that's 11 months closer to Christmas than we were in January and so I say... roll on the Christmas events and bring out the Christmas scents!

I'm afraid you've got to endure my festive ramblings for a further month and a half! I'd suggest sticking on a Christmas film and lighting some luxury Spiced Apple Soy Melts to help ease you into the mood...
