With Autumn officially beginning this week, we’re already planning how to make those dark evenings that bit more bearable, and one of the best things about nights in instead of out has got to be turning on the fire, cosying up on the sofa and lighting an atmospheric scented candle.

Here’s our pick of the best new luxury offerings to take you through Autumn and Winter.

1. Heir & Grace ‘Orange & Chilli’, £36 (200g)
