Take it all in—these are the season’s best scents.

With the yuletide in full swing, it’s hard not to get caught up in the frenetic energy of the season. Take a quick breather from the mad rush—a whiff of an evocative scent soothes and invigorates.

From cocktail-inspired candles to luxurious perfumes, we’ve curated a selection of festive fragrances that’s sure to set the mood for the holidays.

Sometimes, a swoosh of a match is all it takes to give you the warm fuzzies. A sniff of Jo Malone London’s latest offering, the Pine & Eucalyptus Candle, is like waking up to the scent of Christmas morning.

Need a pick-me-up? Malin + Goetz’s Mojito Candle is a refreshing cocktail of mint and lime that gives plenty of Christmas cheer.

Looking to attract some luck? Diptyque’s holiday collection, done in collaboration with artist Olaf Hajeck, features candles that double as lucky charms, with each hue carrying a wish for the new year.

But if it’s the spritz of a perfume that makes you swoon, consider these:

Tom Ford’s Fabulous Eau de Parfum is a warm, decadent scent with notes of lavender, bitter almond, vanilla, orris root, and leather. This vibrant fragrance lasts ultra-long, perfect for back-to-back Christmas soirées.

Equally intoxicating, Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum is a rich yet smooth unisex scent—a blend of jasmine blossoms and woody musks. The scent’s crimson bottle reinforces its boldness.

Below, we show you more of our favorite scintillating scents. What do you know? It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas.
