Red is the colour of love and desire, glamour and power. Those who love handmade candles often choose red to evoke these intense emotions – and also for the glorious glow that the candle gives as it burns down. Traditionally, it is thought that if you burn a red candle it connects with energy, relationships and courage. Interior designers may choose red to create lively, exciting rooms. You can use red in your own home to add energy or allure. Try a pop of scarlet in a monochrome kitchen for a retro vintage feel, or deep ruby red in the bedroom for a dramatic, romantic look.
Thanks to all of this rich symbolism, red is an ever-popular colour for Valentine Candles. Choose from candles adorned with hand-painted red roses for a romantic gift, or for those with a more dramatic aesthetic consider the Red and Gold Horses Frieze Candle, on a rich crimson pillar. Red and green are traditional colours of Christmas – and red candles are one of the popular colours of Christmas candles UK shoppers choose. Red is often a key colour on Christmas Tree Candles, and brings to mind Santa Claus, candy canes, and Rudolph’s nose. The Nadine’s Candle Christmas Collection is adorned with gold dust detailing, and so candles from this range make for a luxurious and fabulously festive gift.
