  1. Christmas may be gone but winter is very much still with us, and if the weathermen/weather ladies are to be believed, Britain is in for a big freeze! So, we thought it was appropriate to give you the lowdown on the best scents to burn to make those cold, dark evenings when your snuggled up on the sofa even cosier.

    cinnamon scented candle

    * Cinnamon! There is a reason this candle stays in our top ten bestsellers all year round – it's simply delicious. But even more so in the colder months as its warm spicy scent literally engulfs you into the festive season!

    * Autumn Sunshine! If a candle was a hug, it would be this one! A personal favourite of mine, the creamy sandalwood and musk tones make any room feel instantly cosier and it's just £5!

    * Lemon Drizzle! If ever there was a scent to make any house smell homely and cosy it has to be the smell of freshly baked lemon drizzle cake wafting around. For those who would rather leave Christmas in the past, this is a perfect winter warmer scent with it spicy tones set against refreshing citrus giving a lighter, less crimbo aroma.

    * Toffee Apple! Pure indulgence for these cold days and nights. Again, perfect for those who want a less festive scent but still want all the comfort. 

    * Almond Macaroon! This candle will have your mouth watering with bakery tones of warm cookie and toasted almonds with a hint of vanilla bean - perfect for nights snuggled on the sofa.

    So there you have it! Five candles that not only smell amazing but due to their blend of delicious, warming tones they really are perfect for a cosy evening in front of the TV.

    I'd love to know what your favourite cosy candles are, so leave me a comment below.

  2. Christmas has left the building, the New Year is very much in full swing and with summer a very distance memory with no sight of return anytime soon, it’s not hard to see why those January blues can be seen so prominently eched on people’s faces. Luckily, Kiss Air have a few tips that we swear by!

    Back to work blues:

    Work, work, work. Sometimes taking a break just isn’t worth it with the amount you have to catch up on when you return and it’s only when you get home you notice the tension in your body that the constant bombardment of emails, phone calls and paperwork have caused.

    Lavender CandlePerfect solution: bath time! Let the warm water and bubbles soak into your skin and achy muscles and relax! You’ll feel all those stresses float away in the steam of water and for added oomph, light our lavender candle because when it comes to relaxation, Lavender is by far the most well-know and recognised scent and for good reason!

    Not a bath person? No problem, perfect solution number 2: Grab a book, pour yourself a glass of your favourite tipple, put your feet up and use that imagination of yours to take you away to a distant place. Reminiscing to a happier, sunnier time can do anyone the world of good and burning our Frozen Margarita candle (which happens to be January’s Candle of the Month and has 25% off!) can only help to take you back to that favourite beach bar of yours.

    New Year’s Resolution Blues:

    Unsurprisingly millions and millions of people on the planet will have just one New Year’s Resolution – to diet and exercise! Personally at Kiss Air we can’t think of anything worse (as you can probably tell from our range, we like our cocktails and our sweet treats!) However, some research has shown that smelling non-food odours can reduce your cravings with Jasmine high on the list! Of course, some people are more hard core than others and although it personally just makes me more hungry, just the smell of our Lemon Drizzle cake candle filling their house is enough to satisfy their sweet cravings.

    So, if you ever needed an extra reason to treat yourself on the candle front, you’ve just found it!

  3. Laura and I love this time of year - the hazy sunshine, leaves are turning golden and wearing fluffy socks, curling up on the sofa drinking hot chocolate with the flicker of a flame to give that super cosy feeling.

    autumn sunshine

    We wanted to create a candle that smells comforting and gives us a cosy feeling and would help us snuggle into the new season. So, Autumn Sunshine is a decedent, creamy indulgent scent with top notes of caramelised amber and honeyed sweet white musks. Softly spiced pink peppercorns and a gentle wisp of geranium stems lead into a base of warm patchouli and buttery Madagascan vanilla pods to complete this scent making it the perfect autumn candle.

    We'd love to hear what you think of our new limited edition scent.

    Love, Louise

  4. Hold on to summer a little longer with this month's candle of the month Sparkling Pomegranate.

    This candle has a lively scent of grapefruit, lemon and orange blended with fresh red fruit and a twist of crushed pomegranate seeds. Hints of green foliage are freshened with a blend of crisp aldehydes to reinforce the sparkling top note.

    You can get Sparkling Pomegranate for just £6.75 (usually £9) throughout September and don't forget we offer FREE delivery on orders over £25!

    Do you like the smell of Pomegranate?

    Love, Louise

  5. We’re in Lanzarote at the moment celebrating Laura’s big 3-0, so we’re REALLY REALLY sorry but can’t send orders until we’re back on Monday 27th June. We know this isn’t ideal but hope you’ll understand as we’re a small family business and as it’s a milestone birthday we’re away celebrating together.
