Five cheap candles I'm buying in the sales today – including Diptyque, Neom and The White Company

The scented candles it makes sense to buy now as a treat for yourself or a gift for someone special

As much as I love picking out a new wallpaper, or debating what colour to paint my walls, nothing gives me more satisfaction than lighting a candle and letting it fill a room with transforming scent. And let's face it, it's a lot easier than decorating. So today, I've got my eye out for the best Black Friday candle deals.

I'll keep some for myself, give a few to my ever-deserving family and friends and stash the rest in my 'gift drawer' for the months ahead.

When it comes to sensational smells, I'm a big fan of Neom, The White Company and (if budget allows) Diptyque. I've also been impressed with TK Maxx's own-brand home fragrances – I'm currently enjoying a 'DW Home, Peony Petals' hand-poured candle as I type.

Over the years, I've learned the importance of scent, longevity, and an even burn. So with all that in mind, these are the candles I'll be popping in my Black Friday basket.
