Let's hear it for aromatherapy! Few things can transform a space—or lift a mood—as quickly and completely as scented candles and fragrance diffusers. Candles offer what we humans crave: warmth and light, a comforting focal point, plus a pleasing aroma that has the power to calm or invigorate. Nordstrom offers beautiful candles made from soy wax, beeswax and coconut wax. Our Jo Malone London candle collection includes intriguing scent pairings like Wood Sage & Sea Salt, English Pear & Freesia and Lime Basil & Mandarin, plus many more. And Jo Malone London offers sizes ranging from a luxury candle with a 230-hour burn time to a travel candle with an 18-hour burn time. Nordstrom also carries the Parisian luxury perfumer diptyque. Our diptyque candle collection includes the brand's best-selling Baies/Berries, classic Santal/Sandalwood and its distinctive Figuier/Fig Tree, to name a few. Nordstrom's Voluspa candle collection includes Crisp Champagne, Prosecco Bellini and Saijo Persimmon scents in Voluspa's distinctive round tins and decorative glass containers—available in several sizes. Our NEST Fragrances candle collection includes the lively scents of Grapefruit, Bamboo and Sicilian Tangerine in the brand's sleek glass containers, and they're also available in various sizes. Be sure to explore our popular candle sets; they typically offer three or more candles in sizes ranging from mini to travel size to full size and are perfect for gift giving—or for auditioning new scents to find your own favorite.
Fragrance diffusers are tremendously popular for their ability to gently waft an aroma into the surroundings. Plus, they are flameless, which is preferred by many home-fragrance fans who have pets or children, or whose housing prohibits open flames. (And thus a popular gift for dorm-room dwellers who crave a yummy scent.) Nordstrom offers essential-oil diffusers from more than a dozen brands including Antica Farmacista, SERENE HOUSE and The White Company. You'll find a variety of designs that employ various methods to diffuse your fragrance, including traditional reeds, tabletop hourglass diffusers that are turned to distribute the scent, discreet cartridges that plug into a wall socket and electric tabletop devices—including cool-mist aromatherapy diffusers.
It's always wonderful to have a home filled with welcoming fragrance—and never more so than during the holidays. Be sure to take advantage of our candle gift sets and diffuser gift sets, many of which are limited-edition offerings with special winter fragrances and festive Christmas packaging. While these sets can be given whole, clever gift givers split them up to create individual stocking stuffers. Many of our home-fragrance holiday sets are Nordstrom exclusives, so grab them while you can.
