You don't want to light the same candles throughout the year. Different scents fit different seasons. Now that it's getting close to Christmas, you should be buying fragrances that will get you in the holiday spirit. Here are a few Christmasy candles that'll keep your house smelling festive until December ends:

You don't have to roll out the cookie dough and wait for it to cook in the oven in order to make your house smell fantastic. Without even entering your kitchen, you can create the smell of gingerbread. Of course, it just might make you hungry. That means you should probably have some baking ingredients on hand anyway, because you'll want to make some gingerbread men of your very own.
2. Candy Cane Lane
Buy it for $25 on yankeecandle.com
This candle smells of "tingly peppermint, sweet cookies, and creamy vanilla icing." If you don't want to keep candy canes in the house, because you're worried about eating them all, you can place this candle on your table instead. Even the label on it looks festive, which means it'll make the perfect centerpiece.
3. Holiday Memories Holiday Wonderland

It's rare to find something so adorable for only five dollars. It contains fruity scents that freshen up your home. You know what else? It burns for 180 hours. That means it's going to last you the entire season. You might even be able to save it for next year.
4. Welcome the Joy: Winter Berry
Buy it for $14 on glade.com
When you think of Glade, you probably think of air fresheners. However, they have some candles as well. You should try this one, which has "scents of sparkling grapefruit and juicy peach" and "hints of coconut and vanilla cream." Now doesn't that sound delicious?
5. TWISTED PEPPERMINT
Buy it for $22 on bathandbodyworks.com
How could you resist anything that has a picture of a penguin and a polar bear on it? Not only is the label adorable, but the scent is to die for.

6. MARSHMALLOW FIRESIDE
Buy it for $23 on bathandbodyworks.com
Do you wish you could spend Christmas in a cabin, sitting by the fire while you watch the snow fall outside? If that sounds like you, you're going to love this candle. It contains the scent of "toasted marshmallows and sumptuous vanilla cream that blend into the comforting aroma of rich smoldering wood."
7. Holiday Bayberry
Buy it for $10 on yankeecandle.com
You don't have to buy a huge candle in order to make your house smell delicious. Tea light candles will work just as well. That's why you should pick up a few of these, which smell like pine, fir, and laurel softened with bayberry and frankincense. Make sure you light it on Christmas Eve for good luck!
Once you place these candles around your house, it won't be hard for you to get into the Christmas spirit. What's your favorite candle scent to smell around this time of the year?
